My doctor in Raleigh charges nearly $1400. Another dentist charges $1200.

I called a dentist in Rochester, NY, and he charges only $600. I've gone to him twice for simpler things after moving to Raleigh because the money I've saved using him pays for the airfare to get up there (to visit friends and relatives).

But with crowns, you need to have a temporary one put on, and two weeks later, you get the real thing. I can't be up there for two weeks.

Does anyone know if any dentist in Raleigh charges less than $1200 for a crown on a molar?

Thanks. (I'll be so happy when my future son-in-law graduates from dental school and my daughter graduates from dental hygienist school. )

My molar crown was only $600 (Ins paid $300, I paid $300), but my dentist is not taking any new patients, so I won't post him.

Have you tried the dental school at UNC? I don't know how it works, but it might be an option for you. I cna't imagine having to pay that much! I think I'll go floss now.

I have had 2 done in the past 2 years. I get gold crowns, they are supposed to be better at resisting expansion. Each one was $950.

Uh, and when they do, can you get us a special "City-Data" discount??

I have been BLOWN AWAY by the costs for dental work here. Perhaps b/c they don't negotiate w/ insurance companies.

I just paid $1100 for mine(had to save for over a year!) and love my dentist.

The practice is in Cary and called The Happy Tooth.
You can find them at: intro

Mine cost around $900 but my insurance covered a good portion of that. LOVE Dr. Patel at West Cary Dental on hwy 55 near High House. He is awesome- honest, conservative in his treatment plans and very good with nervous nellies like me.
