I went in about a month ago and had my teeth cleaned at a new dentist (my old one retired). My insurance always covers my cleanings so I was expecting it to be the same. They started taking all kinds of high tech photographs of my teeth and then right before they started the cleaning they said that I would have to pay $85 that day. I told them that I normally don't pay for cleanings but they said they charge a little higher price due to the high tech photographs and extra stuff that they do. They told me their system was down so they couldn't tell me the exact price, but it shouldn't be over $85. So, I didn't like it but went ahead and let them do it and paid. I also scheduled an appt to have a cracked tooth fixed next month. Well, today I got a bill for $197. Apparently they had so many extra charges for the photographs that my insurance company rejected most of them. So, my cleaning cost me a total of $282 out of pocket. I am furious! I will be calling them tomorrow, and will likely cancel my appointment and get my tooth fixed somewhere else. I can only imagine what they will try to charge for that.
