Ok, so today I had to go to the dentist, ugh. I had an old gold tooth that had been at my Dad's house, kind of disgusting as it was all intact - we didn't know to whom it had originally belonged. What to do with the gold? My dentist will know! He looked at it and said after assaying it for weight and carat value, likely it would fetch only about $20. But, if I wanted, people sometimes donated the gold to a sort of dental bank, and after a large enough amount had been collected, it was given to a dental organization that provided free dental care for children in low income areas. Voila! So if you have any of that sort of disgusting stuff around and don't know what to do with it, take it to your dentist and ask him if it can be donated! Then you can feel good the rest of the day!
