    • I think they‘re always scheming to get money out of you!  Like they always keep bugging me that I need to get my wisdom teeth removed or that my kids have cavities and need fillings.  I just don’t trust dentists!  I took my son to different dentists and they each said something different with regards to the number of fillings he had to have.

    • I would skip the wisdom teeth pulling if they aren’t bothering you.    I agree, my dentist is constantly talking about how much more my dental insurance will cover for the year, he wants to make sure she gets every last dime of it.

    • I just went yesterday for my cleaning.  While I was there they filled a teeny tiny little cavity.  And “while you‘re here we might as well pull the root of that tooth that broke off.”  UGH!

      Yes, I have dental insurance.  But I got a look at the numbers of what this would cost me without insurance!!!!!!!  Seriously for 40 minutes worth of work they would charge me 5 or 6 days pay!!!!

      And then they have the nerve to suggest that I should have a bridge done now that I’m missing most of my teeth on one side.  I looked him right in the eye and said “not unless I have some miraculous raise”

      I don’t know what my cost is going to be after insurance, but you can bet when I pay it, they will be getting a letter with the check giving them a piece (polite) of my mind.

    • We have never had a problem with our dentist being greedy or abrasive.  He runs a small practice in two different locations and is a wonderful man.  One time a piece of my filling broke off and he saw me at his home office on a Sunday, now that is a wonderful person..he fixed it temporarily and then I saw him a few months later to replace it with a permanent filling.

      We have dental insurance and it covers just about everything, but my hub does work for a university and maybe their coverage works differently.
