Hey all, longtime reader, decided to make myself an account.

I'm looking for a dentist, preferably in the northwest area, but willing to drive for good care. I've sent some emails off but mostly all I've gotten back are responses asking me to come in for an exam and x-ray before discussing prices. I know this is part of the process, I however would like to get some price estimates before being forced into an exam at a place I likely won't even get my dental work done if the price is out of my range. If anyone here is in the know, could you respond here or send me a personal message? I know I need two crowns and some work afterwards. As much as I'd like a phone number to someone a poster here recommends, I'm going to assume the dentist I call will just ask me to come in for an exam and x-ray. I'm about to do some unpaid student teaching (master's degree, looking to start teaching) so money, which is usually not an issue, will be in this process. Thanks for all of the help.

I should add, from what I've gotten so far; $1200 per crown and another $250 for the exam and x-ray. I'm pretty sure that can be beat.

Dr. Lepow
I believe he has two locations, but I go to his West Rd/Beltway location. Everyone is so friendly and very professional. Very happy.

Dr. Bruce Smith in Montrose.

Very gentle. My crown was pain-free.

Lots of people we know use Dr. Lepow, but we've never been to him since he is not in any of the insurance plans we've had. I take that to mean he doesn't want to accept the lower negotiated rates for his services. So we use Dr. Cher Rich on Jones Rd. 12607 Jones Road, Houston, TX 77070 Phone: (281) 469-6281 She is pretty good and all of my kids go there.

Good luck on it! I could use a crown too, but even with insurance my cost (50%) will be about $600, so I think your estimate is about on target.

We see Dr. Thomas Hernandez, Heritage Dental in Champions. We were surprised to run into our neighbors in the waiting room there last year.

Although we have never gone to Dr. Lepow, I see his name recommended often in our neighborhood forum.

I just went to Dr. Rich for a cleaning and got another quote on my crown. It is my middle bottom molar. Maybe I was wrong before, but this time the total will be $890 and my portion is $460. So I'm scheduled for later in the month to get it done.
