In general I am confident of the expertise but I am dismayed at the charges for a 5 minute
procedure ($57) to check for gingivitus pockets .
This is up an additional $10 dollars from last time .
I would have been ok with a charge of $100 - $110 for the cleaning but $171 is way too much .
I was there for not much more than a half hour . There was not much for Ashley to do other than a basic cleaning .
Hi Tom, We appreciate your feedback after your dental appointment. You are correct in that the fee is $10 more than when you were here last year. The appointment is more than just a basic cleaning and check for gingivitis. We are updating any medical and dental history changes, oral cancer screening, oral hygiene instruction, periodontal charting, dental prophylaxis, removal of plaque, calculus, staining etc. We certainly avoid having to increase any fees, our last increase was in 2013. We value our patients and the work that we do and know that it certainly is an investment for all of us.
