WOW!!!!!!! Dentists adopting the chiropractic business model

With dentists, if any insurance payment, definitely fraud. I'm sure it's against the law and against dental board laws

QUACKS!!!!!!

I'm sure the dentist would come up with a reason that justifies. Such as getting plaque removed. Being pro active . Many ways he can spin the reasoning.
My dentist got cash of 4k out of me til I went for a second opinion. And that dentist was livid! He basically said, there was no reason based on the 6 month plan to do some of those procedures. Terribly expensive lesson learned.

Ten years ago, my dentist said I had to get my wisdom teeth extracted. "Had to."

I still have them and there is nothing wrong with them.

That's why I don't go to American dentists.

I had a Dentist here where I live wanted 32,000 to fix all my teeth and this was in my early 50's. I didn't have have many left. Now I have dentures which I like because of no pain.

That doesn't make sense, because even dental implants probably wouldn't cost quite that much. $32,000 is like robbery.

When I lived in Orange County, CA I went to a dentist that seemed like a pro. The wall was full of diplomas and certificates, and the office was full of the latest equipment. After about 7 or 8 years, I started to re-evaluate. Why was it that every year, there seemed to be something that needed to be done, just enough to max out my dental insurance limit?

I don't consume sugary food or drinks, floss twice daily, and a have a good brushing routine. I just went to my dentist in Nogales, Mexico a little over a week ago, and it was a routine exam and cleaning. It's been like that for over 3 years. He looked at my x-rays and is bewildered at why I have many crowns, because my teeth and gums are in excellent condition!
