At the time of the cleaning and inspection, Dr. Lissette had said that she had to grind out a small portion of the old filling and replace it. And that the repair should take a half an hour.
We walked into the reception room at five minutes before my 11:00am appointment and Dr. Lissette came out right away. We didn't even get a chance to sit down! I was in the chair and ready to be worked on at 11:00am!
She remembered that I had said the tooth wasn't bothering me and that I didn't have any pain at all. So she asked if I wanted to have the repair done without any freezing. I hate freezing, so I said yes....go for it!
A short time into the job, she stopped and explained why she thought she should remove the entire filling and start from scratch. It was a large filling and was going to take more time. I told her to do whatever she thought was best.
The job was annoying because it was a molar right at the very back of my mouth. But, even with the drilling and grinding there was very little pain. 50 minutes later, the job was done it was time to pay the bill.
I owed her for the 45 minute cleaning and inspection and the 50 minutes for the large filling. Total bill? 400 pesos ($34.00).
Less than 24 hours later, the tooth feels great. No irritation or discomfort at all. We love Dr. Lissette!
We had fellow RV'ers and bloggers Doug and Nancy over to Sherman for lunch. Ruth had made a delicious chicken and broccoli casserole the night before and we had lots of leftovers! In fact, given that we are leaving here on Monday we think we might have too much food in the freezer! We always have lots to talk about with Doug and Nancy. They were RV'ers who came to Mexico because of reading our blog!

We were invited for dinner last night to Mary-Pat's tiny motorhome along with Tioga George. Mary-Pat is 70 years old and traveled Mexico in her little motorhome with her dog Lacey and two cats!

This morning, we're going to fire up Sherman and take him for a drive! Hopefully. It always makes me a little nervous turning the key when a vehicle has been sitting for a while! I think Sherman will be raring to go!
