B. Harvey Wiener DDS PA Endodontics
Exorbitant Prices and Nasty Attitude: I selected Dr. Weiner since he was the closest dentist listed in my dental plan when my general dentist advised a second opinion consultation. He looked in my mouth at only the one problem tooth, tooth #10, ordered an X-ray, refused to look at the X-ray that my general dentist had given me, looked again in my mouth , ordered another X-ray from a slightly different angle, looked at it, and said that he agreed with my general dentist. My total time in the dentist's chair was 14 minutes, I was with Dr. Weiner for about 5 minutes at most. Upon leaving, the receptionist informed me that the bill was $131.25. This seemed exorbitant, so I asked if that included my dental plan discount, and she said it did. I gave the receptionist a credit card and asked for an itemized bill, since she only gave me the credit card receipt. I was in a hurry, so I did not look at the bill until I got home later in the day. It said "Exam, Xrays Consult #10, $131.25".When I called the office a few times to re-request the itemized breakdown, I was given the runaround for a few days, even when I went back to the office in person, and was finally told, over the phone, that the one tooth consultation was $130, the first X-ray was $25 and the second X-ray was $20, a total of $175, less my 25% plan discount. When I mentioned that this seemed excessive, I was told to call and ask speak to Dr. Weiner, which I did. Dr. Weiner's attitude was extremely nasty; he said that those were his prices and told me several times to "let it go". I also never did get an explanation of why the X-rays, which I expected to be included in the service, were priced differently.If you make the mistake of going to this dentist, my advice would be to check the prices for the expected services before you go, and proposed additional services after you are there; don't be afraid to say you want to think about it and leave, and do not expect to be treated with respect if you are in any way dissatisfied.
Tips & Advices
During a root canal therapy session, an endodontist removes inflamed or infected dental pulp, cleans the inside of the tooth, then fills the area with a rubber-like substance.
Patients who have not been sedated are usually fine to drive after a root canal procedure. Still, they should check with their endodontist just to be safe. Patients that have been sedated should have a friend or family member pick them up.
Endodontic therapy is the treatment of inflamed or infected soft tissue inside the tooth known as the pulp.
No, patients do not need a referral to see an endodontist.
Root canal costs vary depending on the number of roots the tooth has. A procedure on the front row, where teeth usually have only one root, costs around $700 per tooth. A procedure on the molars, which can have up to three roots, costs around $900.
