How would you know what it costs? You are paying for much more than an item. It takes SKILL, lots of schooling, equipment, a building, and staff to care for a patient and to implant your $26 item. Oh, and not to mention outrageous insurance premiums! Hope that answers you question.

I've gone to them for years.

It doesn't take that much schooling to mold a heat activated polymer to your front teeth and stick it into a plastic bite guard. If it did, then I'd be out almost $1000 instead of $26 + shipping and handling.

I thought they were nice and all, they just charge insane prices. I wouldn't have gone to them were it not for the $40 exam/xray/etc. card that someone gave me (which I appreciated)

I switched dentists 3 years ago when I went to Hayes to have some work done. They wanted 3000 after insurance had paid it's part. A different local dentist did the same job for 800 and I have had no complaints.

What other dentist was that?

I don't have insurance and haven't been to a dentist in five years. What are some decent places to do a standard cleaning and checkup, and the average price?

Who do you think pays for his fancy new office and equipment? The customers do. I heard there is WAY more to the guy than most people see. Think hard on it.

Dr. Hintz was absolutely wonderful with my child. Very patient, kind and thorough. He did a great job with him. Additionally he is extremely nice (and very cute too). The entire staff there was kind and helpful. I highly recommend them.

Hayes is so totally outragous on their prices that I never went back. One hundred dollars for a cleaning? That was ten years ago!

They want to sedate you for everything to get another 400.00 from you. Then they can extract a tooth and put it under surgicaly removed for 194.00 Insane eh!
