Dealing with this dentist may be the most.....distasteful...experience I have ever had with a professional officeSome of these people, in my opinion, have questionable character and certainly no appreciating for any interest that deters them from milking as much out of the system and their patients as they can. They charged over $600 more than other dentists in the same plan by being over priced, going total overkill on procedures and by charging for things they were not allowed too. The dental Insurer made them reverse some of the charges but they deducted $88 on what they owed us for an "adjustment" on the almost $1900 out of pocket cost, for the crown and root canal they did. Have you ever heard of a dentist charging for an adjustment for work they should have done right in the first place? I have contacted the New York State Office of professional discipline because in their quest to squeeze every last over priced penny out of their patients, they ignored the rules and performed procedures that could be contrary to the welfare of their patients.The complaint form will be filled in and filed as soon as I am done with this. I will also be contacting the better business Bureau and anyone else I can think of.They "mislead" ( being polite here) both me and the insurance company. The more you ask for explanations and fairness the more arrogant they become. It is astounding how hard they fought to cheat me out of a few hundred dollars with no consideration of what's right. There manipulated ever rule they could. Even ones they couldn't. Only being caught stopped them.My theory is they bill a lot of wealthy people who do not scrutinize their bills and they have become arrogant. If paying beyond top dollar for levels of work you don't need is what you are looking for then this is your place.It should be noted that this office will not be receiving any referrals from me or the dental plan that worked hard to get fair treatment for me from them.
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.
