My son has to get one of his tooth pulled and a few cavities...that the dentist proposed to fill. the quote is roughly $2250. the insurance maxes out at about $850...now for children is it a MUST TO DO the fillings for the tooth that will come out anyway? i understand about the one that needs to have the space maintainer, but the others...im just curious about, especially the dentist didnt look to excited when i said i want to see what the insurance will be paying for first...2. would you the dentist be ok if i tell you i want a second opinion on this 3. were you someone's second opinion and did you find that the patient even need the services their previous dentist told them they need to begin with? 4. does my son's x-rays go with us when we go for second opinions?Answer Question
Why would a dentist be on cm in the middle of the day during the week? I guess maybe one on leave, a former dentist, or someone that worked with dentists.
As a parent it's been my experience different dentists can have different opinions and you own your x-rays. Pediatric dentists usually want to do the most work and charge the most.
