I have 2 wisdom teeth that need to be removed. They are both partially erupted. I have gone online and seen reviews about various dentists but am having a hard time getting an estimate on the price. I do not have health insurance and am looking for a good dentist who can remove my 2 wisdom teeth at a decent price. Most of the dentist office that I have called all want you to come in to get an estimate on their prices. Basically you have to come in pay for office visit and xray yet cant even get an estimate on the price. Is there a good dentist that you would recommend?

The thing is that I dont want to pay for an x ray and visit and then find out it that I cannot afford to have them removed.

I go to Dr. Adrienne Mays in Richardson; her office is at Plano Road and Campbell east of 75, close-ish to Plano.

I don't know how she or her office would handle your situation but I've been using her for four years and have always found her and her staff to be both very competent and caring.

As a bonus, her office is right next to a Subway so it smells delicious. ;-)

If you do have to have your wisdom teeth removed (if they're impacted then you do) then I don't think she can help you; you would need an oral maxillofacial surgeon.

Richardson Dentist, Richardson Cosmetic Dentist, North Dallas Dentist, Plano General Dentist, Garland Family Dentist, Carrollton Dentist

You could try becoming a patient at the Baylor College of Dentistry; it's nowhere near Plano but it can save you a ton of money if you don't mind spending twice as long at your dental appointments. It's where my elderly neighbors go for their dental implants.

Go to Carewell Dental, Dr. Wang on Coit and Park. He goes to my office to pull wisdom teeth that I can't do. I am a dentist.

Thanks so much! I know I may be asking a bit tmi but how much do you think he would charge for partially erupted wisdom teeth on the bottom. They are both soft tissue impactions.

You can call dentist's office and ask for an estimate. Its low if you pay privately without any insurance.

Thanks for the help but I have called SEVERAL dentist office in Plano and not one of them have been able to give me an estimate. They basically tell me that I have to come in order for them to give me an estimate. For that very reason, I decided to create this thread and get some info on good dentists. As I stated in my earlier posts, I didn't want to go into the office for them to tell me it will be 2k after I have paid for an appt. Basically I would be paying only for them to tell me how much it is going to cost when they can give me an estimate via the telephone.

Well I had 4 of my wisdom teeth pulled last year. Two of them were partially erupted but the other two were still under my gums. My dentist said an oral surgeon had to do it maybe you should try to get an estimate from an oral surgeon. In any case my dentist is great and the oral surgeon I used is great too. My dentist is in Plano near the corner of Spring Creek and Coit. His name is Brad Williams. The oral surgeon I used has 2 offices one in Frisco and one in Coppell and his name is Russell Bass. Dr. Bass was awesome and even responded to my e-mail within 15 minutes with a phone call when I had a complication.
