The dentist here like all of the doctors associated with Novant have fixed their prices. My neighbor found a good dentist in Columbia SC for crowns (only a short drive from here) for much less than the price fixers here. Avoid the credit care because they charge over 22% annual interest...< anther ripe off

CareCredit is offered by General Electric credit and has 6, 12, and 18 month no-interest payment plans, depending on the doctor and the cost of service.

Dentists here in the Charlotte area are thieves. You can probably take a flight to any major city in the US and have your dental work done and the total price with airfare would be cheaper than getting your dental work done here in Charlotte.

I can get to NYC from Charlotte for about $150 round trip if I catch a really good sale from one of the airlines. $50 roundtrip for a cab into midtown Manhattan. You'll probably have to stay overnight, so that's another $200, plus any liquid meals that you'd be able to eat after dental work (I recommend Gray's Papaya).

So...how much for the follow-up visit?

I am not sure of the exact name of the medical credit company used by the high buck dentist we used on Randolph road but the interest rate was indeed 22% It is the reason we quit using the dentist...

I just had my crown put on FRIDAY--so not quite 72 hours ago. It was $644 UP FRONT and my insurance will reimburse me for almost all of it.

If you are a regular patient it wouldn't hurt to ask your dentist if you can arrange payments for a few months instead of paying in one lump sum. They will probably say No but it's worth a shot. When I had a crown put in they let me break up my share into 2 payments. They were hesitant to do so but let me anyway because I guess they knew I would pay them?

Hello I gave them a call and was told it would cost $1200 and up. My insurance will pay half. $644 was that the total cost? I talked to the Mathews office.

I've found that since this practice is part of the CHS network, they may be a bit lower priced or willing to work with you, depending on the procedure:
