I would print out the page that says they accept your insurance. Then take them to court...just my opinion...a lot of dentist screw people over all the time..most of them usually don't care how they treat people as long as they get their money.they make more money by accepting insurance then they do cash so it sounds like someone was wanting you to pay cash just so he/she could put the cash in there pocket. I definatly wouldn't let them get away with it.

I have been going there for years and no problems. Have had a couple different insurances over the years. I have had bluecross/blueshield for a very long time and it is accepted but I do have to pay extra depending on what has to be done...

I have gone there for years and never had a problem. And I have Blue Cross Blue Shield.

Your plan probably doesn't cover 100% and you're paying the difference. Sorry that you can't understand your insurance plans and the details of its coverage.

Just because they take your ins doesn't mean that your ins pays 100% and you have to meet a deductible 1st too. I worked there and they go by the book

They do good work but they are the most expensive Dentists in the world.

Never worked there, but dentists make more on cash patients. Insurance doesn't always cover everything 100% and them "taking" your insurance just means they have a contract with the insurance company which in turn means the insurance pays on their own scale. The dentist often loses $$ by accepting insurance. For instance, a crown is $800, the insurance will pay by their scale, after the deductible and copay, so the dentist doesn't get the full $800. A cash patient on the other hand, pays the $800 in full. Depending on what materials & lab fees, Dr A. might make a profit of $50 and Dr B. might make $500. Quality of dental work is very important. You get what you pay for. They might be expensive, but I have never heard of any problems with their work.

Most Dr's have a lot of staff standing around scratching their azzes doing nothing. They have to be paid too.

if that was true they wouldn't take insurance at all no business is gonna work to lose money all the time they wouldn't be able to afford to stay open.

If they didn't accept insurance, then they would not have any business at all. Better to be reimbursed 60% than have no business at all.

Dumbass.

The one fault on your argument is that you assume that all cash patients will pay in full. I have seen first hand how much outstanding debt businesses write off because it is never going to get paid. And don't think collection agencies will solve it. After a set amount of time they will turn the debt back over to the business.

I have been going to his office since I was 16. That was quite some time ago and even if insurance didn't cover all of the dental work performed he never objected to payments. I know that now they go through medical financing...care credit???...but I even take my kids to his office. Everyone has an opinion and not everyone is going to agree with who's "the best". Just find another dentist. Is it really that hard? And read the fine print in your dental coverage so you aren't surprised next time.

He has been my dentist ever since I came to this town - many years ago. He and his staff have ALWAYS been courteous, knowledgeable, and lenient with regards to payment. I've never had a problem there with whatever insurance I had at the time OR when I didn't have ANY insurance. He may (or may not) be expensive - I don't care. You pay for quality. That's the difference between a Corvette and a Chevette. Maybe I have Chevette dental insurance because it never pays EVERYTHING. I always have to pay a little bit when I have work done or a cleaning. Just like my medical insurance.
