    New Comer in Need of Root Canal and Crown in BA!!

    I had a root canal here and I'm doing fine. The dentist's equipment was more modern than my dentist in the states. My dentist here is a generalist, she did not preform the root canal, instead she had a specialist come to her office. When she gave me the injection to numb me, I didn't even feel...

    Hello from Chicago - Tennis in English?

    I flew to B.A. twice on a one-way ticket and I didn't have any problems. Through this forum I read that "Delta" doesn't allow one-way travels to B.A. When I flew "American Airlines" the first time, no questions were asked. This last time when I checked in through one of the "United"...
