The most expensive toothbrush ever!

Hello!? I'm sure I must have read wrong. Surely it wasn't $44.36 to BRUSH TEETH!? Zachary went to the pediatric dentist today. Holy freaking cow!! The hygenist brushed his teeth... yes, I said brushed, NOT polished. She had him pick out a Mater toothbrush, and used SpongeBob Crest and BRUSHED HIS TEETH!! We were in and out and HOME in about 30 minutes. The printout for me/insurance said "polishing $44.36" yes, it said polishing. I told them that the charge was excessive, that *I* could BRUSH his teeth for $44.36! Give me a freakin' break. No wonder folks without insurance don't go to the dentist when they rip you off like that!! I'm feeling like it was FRAUD to charge that much for 'polishing' when clearly it was NOT polishing they did. Freak.
