Drive further and save or drive less and pay more?

So my friend doesn't seem to be the brightest. She went to the dentrist after her tooth broke, and paid $300 then asked about a crown they told her $900-$1,000 (FOR A CROWN). She texted me this and I said about this dentist who did mine and I paid with root canal $1,080 (and was about $250 for the crown). I believe she's being ripped off. She goes yea but its 45 minutes to an hour to that dentist and this one is down the street. Yes, but you may pay $40-$50 in gas not $800. BIG DIFFERENCE. I told her doesn't matter to me she can pay the $1,000 but when it breaks off as the tooth has been fixed before by this same dentist fact every dentist I have called was around the $250-$500 mark (depending on kind you get). $1,000 was for the basic white, hate to see what gold or silver was.

This is why I never go to my mom's known dentist because it's just too far away. Why go there when we have more than eight dentist here in the neighborhood. But trouble is that you don't know who is legally licensed @ricki_911 . My last dentist who had done work on me didn't have license.

We have a lot more policies and lawsd here so that is not an issue. But I'd go further to save $1,000.

Nope, since she is always complaining she has no money.
