When I go to google and type "medicalfinancing.com", the second listing is "medicalfinancing.com complaints".  I wouldn't trust them.

 

Your best best would probably be go to a university and get as much work done as you can afford at a time.  

 

If it's $18,500 of work at the "best dentist in St Louis", it'll probably cost you around $10,000 at a dental school and you'll be doubly supervised (both by a trained student who doesn't want to make mistakes and a seasoned professional who doesn't want his student to make mistakes).  Get the most necessary work done first to save your teeth, even if it means them not looking great for a couple months.

 

Leave the $7500 cosmetic stuff (veneers and whatnot) for when the necessary work is completed.

 

Also, SHOP AROUND, SHOP AROUND, SHOP AROUND. If you don't feel comfortable going to a dental school, at least get a couple of opinions on how much it would cost to get the work done.

I'm sorry if I come off as rude, but you're repeating the same thing over and over, even when people have said that there's no legitimate lender that's going to give you $25k with your credit profile, and that spending that much money that you don't have is a bad idea.

 

You know your credit is not good enough to get $25k from a responsible/legitimate creditor and you Googled that company and there's nothing but negative comments about them. You already know it's a bad idea without asking anyone else.

I would atleast call back as see what kind of terms that company is willing to lend you (APR, monthly payment amount, etc).

Another thought: the dentist who quoted you $25K for dental work might have a different definition of "needed" work, as in he/she is thinking of adding on a family room or getting a new bass boat, and he/she needs a bump in the cash flow. Smiley Wink

 

I would definitely get a second and even a third opinion. If nothing else, you might be able to get work done to restore your function (remove cavities, allow you to eat, etc.), and then later on get the cosmetic restorative work done.

 

I'm not dismissing the appearance angle, because that can be very important, but sometimes you just have to do things in stages.

Re: dental health cards need $25,000 of work

I understand that I have a written statement he is not trying to "rip me off"! I've said plenty of times $10,000 of it is cosmetic. But im trying to figure out about medicalfiancing.com. I've already read you guys saying to get a 3rd opinion

At this point, my suggestion would be to make your own decision based on your research of this company.

Re: dental health cards need $25,000 of work

My credit card debt is mostly because of dental work and my poor ability of doing my dental plan homework at the time.

Two root canals and two crowns plus some additional work cost me just about $6,000 overall... WITH a dental plan.

 

I haven't read the full thread, but I assume your job doesn't have dental then?

 

And how old are you, btw? (Just personal curiousity.)

 

And the veneers? I'd say forget that, for now.

If you are taking in 2K a month and have pretty much no bills, you could save enough for that in about 7 to 8 months.

 

And that medicalfinancing... SHADY.

 

Doesn't your dentist have a way to refer you to a payment plan as well?
