1-800-DENTIST $30,000 Giveaway


I received an email this week from 1-800-DENTIST telling me they are giving away $30,000 worth of free dental care. How did they know I didn’t have dental insurance? When you work for yourself, it’s hard to get a dental plan. The best I could find were dental discount cards. I sure could use $30,000 worth of free dental care because I need root canal work done (ouch) and I have a reoccurring infection that makes it hard to chew on the right side of my mouth.

  1. Please help me!! I have had problems with my teeth since a child. Bad teeth runs from my dad’s side of the family. I remember eating alot of candy as a child but my mom kept me in the dentist office. My teeth started fall out a long time ago. I have one tooth at the top that loose. The other ones have fallen out. i lost the front one in 1994. I have been using super glue to glue it back in 5 years. I have even lost it, dropped it in the garbage , it has gone down the drain and i panniced every time. I cannot imagine not havin it, its only two teeth but when its out i look ridiculous. Im only 42 years old. I am very attractive until I open my mouth. I am always making people laugh but can never really join in like I want because I am ashamed of my mouth. Its so depressing. I always think about having to live the rest of my life with my teeth like this and I just want to die. I have lost alot of guy friends too. I have done good to learn how to cover it up by talking with my lip over my top gums. I have been proposed to by a man that I love but I refuse to accept because I would never marry anybody because I wouldn’t want to take pictures. I love him so much and we kiss im just so afraid that his tongue will run across my gums I dont know what to do. It has really put a damper on my life. I lost a nice guy because another one of friends realized I didnt have any teeth and he left my house and never called me again. That was a hurtful feeling. If you see me, you would never think my mouth was in such terrible terrible conditon. I want to do the contest, but I would be embarressed for anyone to see my face connected to this terrible mouth. I have waited for an opportunity like this but not in front of other people. I am even embarressed for a dentist to look in my mouth and i know they have seen everything. If i could just change my smile, it would change my life. I would be FOREVER GRATEFUL! I just want to DIE!!! Everything else about me is fine but my mouth is the pits. I appear to be sexy but they just don’t know. I cry everyday about my teeth. I just want some. I cant even eat some of my favorite foods because it hurts to even chew. I live bacon, peanuts, chips and other things. I try to eat it and end up putting it down because it hurts too bad to eat it. I have given up on so much because of this. PLEASE HELP ME REGAIN MY CONFIDENCE!!!! PLEASE!!!!

  2. it’s so unfortunate that I don’t have the equiptment to shoot andn upload a video of my plea so does this totally disqualify my opportunity?

    1. I don’t see how people can vote for your video if you have no video to show. Try using a cell phone or digital camera from a friend, relative, or co-worker. A lot of cell phones and cameras can shoot video.

  3. Wow…I thought I was alone when it comes to having bad teeth.When I just read Cheryl’s story it was like reading my own. I too am in my 40’s and I am also very attractive( so everyone keeps telling me), except for my teeth! This morning I was eating and my front tooth just snapped off at the gum line and I am freaking out! My husband just lost his job last month without warning and we can’t afford to pay rent let alone me go to a dentist. I live in Canada and they don’t even carry any temopary dental fix products here! I feel so lost…I don’t know what to do…I guess I will have to try the superglue thing because I have no other choice. I can’t find a dentist that doesn’t want money up front, so that is out of the question.
    The strange thing is that my bottom 8 front teeth are all perfect, but the top ones and my molars just seem to break in pieces. Its not because I don’t brush or floss, cause I do and I had dental care growing up. I have had severe stomach and intestine problems my whole life so I think my teeth root because of all the acid.
    I guess I missed the deadline for the video thing…probably not applicable in Canada anyway….any suggestions for me?

  4. It’s interesting, growing up I always had great dental coverage (checkups every 6 months) but now that I am a student and my college doesn’t have a dental plan I feel your pain. I still have relatively good teeth but it is somewhat stressful because mouth pain/issue are just that a huge pain. I think this was a great idea on the side of the company, but perhaps they should do more of these with lower payouts.

    1. Free dental care has been a hot topic recently with the changes being made in stateaid programs that are evolving due to recent legislation. saturdaydentist Shows how different states are actually defaulting on stateaid dental programs.
