The Price is High (not Right)
When I checked around for the price on a crown, their price is fairly high at nearly $1000, and our co-pay is $580, where as the full price my Mom paid to her dentist for her crown is only $650 without any insurance. Although we save $70 over going to the dentist that had a better price but did not accept our insurance, we felt slightly ripped off. My friend who works for a dentist said the standard medicare price for a crown is $550. Also the hygenist always complains about how dirty my teeth are and tries to sell me more service or tooth brush and mouth wash. Of course I go to the dentist because my teeth are dirty and I want them cleaned. If they were clean, I would not need to go see them. So I don't see their point of emphazing my dirty teeth, except to rake up the bills with miscellanous. And they did this with my husband too. Before we have this new insurance that we have to go to Imagix, we both went to Dent 1st and it was always easy, no complaints, no extra charges. I should mention also, appointments are hard to get. Every time we had to change our appointment, we got moved back another month. We just put up with them because they are the only 1 in the area that accepts our insurance.
