“The last time I saw my dentist, he told me that if I came in sooner that cavity wouldn’t have turned into a root canal,” says Susan Nilon. She has plenty of valid excuses for neglecting to take time out for routine appointments; after all, she’s running a radio station, hosting a daily two-hour program, all while raising a teenager and volunteering for a range of local organizations. But she admits she’d save money if she took the time to take care of things like regular dental check-ups. “It’s the small little things that don’t seem to be a big thing that turn into a big problem,” she observes.
Whether it is regular dental check-ups, health screenings or tests, waiting can not only cost you a fortune in medical bills later, it can even be life-threatening.
