It was one of those experiences that you think about later and all of the things you could have done and said differently. If I had to do over, I would have asked him to lose the attitude and just explain the plan and let me go home and think about it. We ended up spending $750 for x-rays, half of my mouth cleaned and 2 fillings. I came home and looked around a little on the Internet to find out what the average filling cost, and it was half of what he charged. No wonder he sends out those stupid coupons. From now on I plan on taking someone with me... to help me not get in those situations. The amount he charged was bad enough, but the attitude was worse. I am still in a really bad mood!
Lesson learned. From now on do NOT make any appointments without
1. Having someone there to help me understand what is going on.
2. Research the person you are going to go see.
3. Be better educated about dental practices and procedures.
4. Continue to throw away coupons that fill up the mailbox.
