David W. Casagrande DDS, MS
My experience with Dr Casagrande is not a good experience. I was recommended to Dr Casagrande because of the complexity of my case. When I had my first consult, I was diagnosed with TMJ and other issues. Dr Casagrande recommended I have all my crowns replaced to reconstruct my bite and the uppers replaced with a ProMax full upper implant. Unsure if I was moving forward yet, I waited for the treatment recommendation and estimate. Then when I got the estimate I was shocked. It was going to cost me at least $70,000 so I pursued other Prosthodontists for second opinions. Unfortunately, at the time Dr Casagrande seemed the best qualified so I decided to move forward. but I made it very clear with his office that in order for me to make this work I needed them to work with my financially in phases. They assured me they would work with me financially but that ended up being incorrect.I paid $5,000 cash to initiate phase 1 and that was to cover the cost of long term temp crowns and was going to have to pay another $4,700 when I came in for phase 1. In addition, Dr Casagrande wanted me to choose IV sedation which I said no. He argued with me and kept trying to pressure me no matter how much I tried explaining to him that my body can’t handle sedation. I had already had a bad reaction to Flexeril which I took as prescribed by him to ease the TMJ discomfort. I refused and finally he agreed after I sent him an email with my history of bad reactions to medications. He was irritated and wanted to know why I didn’t tell him that during my initial consult but I told him I tried but he cut me off at the consult so I never got to finish.A few days before flying out for phase 1, I was told I had to pay an additional $11,000 for half payment of permanent crowns (plus the $4,700) even though they wouldn’t be put in over a year later. Shocked and confused, I was told he would not move forward on my lowers if I do not pay this money. So I almost canceled but instead pushed back and said forget the lowers and I wanted an explanation of why they wanted money for something that would be done way later. They already had $5,000 I paid for long term temporary crowns which was what Dr Casagrande was supposed to use for phase 1. Upset I still kept my appointment but refused to give more money so he only moved forward with treatment on my uppers.Phase 1 consisted of pulling all but 4 teeth on my uppers and bone grafting for implants. This is where he wouldn’t listen to me about my concern with bone grafting. I had bone grafting fail before because my body rejected it with another surgeon. I tried explaining that to Dr Casagrande and recommend he speak to the other surgeon but he refused and said everything would be fine. So I told him I’ll trust him but didn’t think it was going to work because I know my body. Then when the upper teeth were pulled there were some that were hard to pull out. That’s when I realized I still had good teeth left. When I brought it up to Dr Casagrande he said they were good which was why they were harder to get out. That bothered me because I was under the impression before they were pulled that they were all bad.At this point, there was nothing I could do except pay my bill and go to the hotel to recover. I was supposed to come back in Dec 2016/Jan 2017 and in Oct my bone grafting started failing just like I told Dr Casagrande it would. I communicated to his office that the grafting was failing but nothing was said in return about it. By this time, I decided to look for another Prosthodontist and now Dr Casagrande’s office is not cooperating with my new surgeon. I feel ripped off and devastated. I can’t get back the good teeth Dr Casagrande pulled nor am I getting back money I wasted on bone grafting that I told him would fail. Dr Casagrande is clearly a surgeon who cares more about money in his pocket than the well-being of his patients and I regret that I ever got started with him.

Tips & Advices
  • Pick Your Plan: Most people purchase three main varieties, usually through their employers.
    • An indemnity or fee-for-service plan means you'll have to pay for annual deductibles and co-insurance payments out of pocket.
    • A preferred provider organization is less costly, and you choose from a network of dentists. However, PPOs have some limitations and accompanying deductibles.
    • A dental health maintenance organization plan limits you to just a few choices of dentists, and one doctor handles all of your oral care needs. However, these HMO are usually much less costly.
  • PPO plans and dental HMOs work with only a select number of doctors. While that usually means fewer costs, it also means you have less choice in the dentist who can treat you Before purchasing the plan, you'll receive a list of dentists in each network. From there, you can then pick a plan with doctors who meet your standards and requirements.
  • When picking a plan, you need to look at just how much you'll pay for each and every service. For instance, some plans won't cover your fillings or X-rays, while others may charge more or less for a crown or tooth extraction. You don't want to be caught off-guard by unforeseen charges.
  • If you're truly comfortable with a dentist and you feel he or she can be an ally in your ongoing oral care regimen, then consider signing a plan to just keep that dentist available. That means potentially deal with costs and other insurance-related factors that you might have wanted to. If need be, you might be able to work with the dentist's office to address some of the plan-specific concerns.
  • Ask family, friends or colleagues for recommendations. They will be able to provide details about a dentist's demeanor, operating style and approach to patient care
  • Meet with any prospective dentists to ask about what treatments they perform most often, procedures they're not as familiar with, what accreditation they have or any organizations they belong to and how their offices handles insurance and payments.
  • Consider driving distance, location and office hours.
  • Check With Your State Board: The state board can outline what requirements your dentist must meet and offer information about any discrepancies in the their background and if he or she has faced any disciplinary actions.
  • Remember Your Angles - When brushing your teeth, always place the brush at a 45-degree angle..
  • Don't Forget the Tongue – Your tongue is the largest source of bacteria. Brush it front to back and don't forget the sides.
  • Floss Everyday - Each time you floss, have at least 18 inches of floss available. For optimal control, hold the floss between your thumbs and forefingers.
  • Watch What You Eat - Sugar, alcohol and coffee contain phosphorus. While some can prove beneficial, too much of this chemical can eat away at your teeth and gums.
  • Keep in Mind the Mouthwash - Mouthwash can be helpful if used to supplement proper brushing and flossing. Most mouthwash brands contain chlorine dioxide, a chemical that targets the majority of oral bacterial strains.
Yellow teeth are the result of a number of bad habits, mainly smoking, drinking too much coffee and improper nutrition. Many dentists will treat with a whitening procedure.
These painful bumps are the result of irritation to the soft tissue of your mouth. These sores can make brushing almost impossible. There are a number of different causes for sores, including anemia or a vitamin B-12 deficiency. Your doctor will have to examine the bump, find its cause and then develop a specific treatment plan, including the use of corticosteroids to reduce inflammation or antimicrobial mouthwash.
