I'm sure there are some dentists that are ethical, but I highly suspect that a very great percentage are no better than those appliance repairmen one
hears about going into some poor, old ladies home and socking her with a big bill while claiming it needed an expensive part, when in fact it only
needed a forty-three-cent fuse.
I wish some moneyed, high-profile, nationally syndicated TV news show would do an in-depth investigation into what many of these white- collar
rip-offs are doing, REALLY expose them!
The last time I went to one of these crooks was a couple of years ago. Before the guy even said hi, he looked at my paper work and commented,
"You've got excellent insurance." He then proceeded to do a little picking at my teeth for all of twelve-minutes while chatting with his assistant
about computers for the entire time.
For all his big "work," I had to pay a $50 deductible and my insurance company was socked for around $400!
I did that sort of nonsense a couple of more times (with him) and then didn't bother returning. I figure I gotta work my tail off for the little
money I make, and so why should I be a-party to this guy pouring Fort Knox into his pockets by way of me and my insurance company. Besides, my teeth
Also, I really loved it when he kept sending me these mail notices begging for me to come back for some more "treatment." LOL!
