I grew up in a poor family. I married into a poor family. As a result, I’ve never been to the dentist. I’ve been thinking about going lately, but to be perfectly blunt I’m afraid of what they’re going to say. I’m sure I’ll need tons of work that I won’t be able to afford, so I wonder if there is even a point.

I understand how frightening it can be when you feel helpless, especially when it is related to your health. while it is possible you’ll need a lot of work, it’s also possible you won’t. Then you can just continue with cleanings and check ups.
Don’t despair if you did need a lot of work. There are affordable ways to get dental work done. There are phased treatment options, payment plans. The important thing is to speak to your dentist ahead of time. Make sure he understands your situations. Most dentists care enough to work with you to make sure you can get the dental care you need.
