I have been a patient of Downtown Dental Care for 15 years and 3 dentists. I was a bit disappointed by my last visit. I had a very small, superficial filling fall out from the outside of one of my teeth. It happens every few years. I called and scheduled an appointment for what I thought was to have it replaced - which normally takes no more than 20 minutes. I had to wait 2 weeks for an appointment. When I arrived, I had to wait for almost a half hour, and finally when Dr. Christianson came in to examine it, he said "Yup, easy replacement. We'll get your schedule to have that taken care of." I was charged $79 for the exam and 27 for the x-ray. I have an appointment for this week to have it done, and I'm sure I'll be charged the full price for the filling.
In my opinion, this was a totally unnecessary appointment and it could have been filled in the time that I was there. I've been dealing with these fillings for most of my adult life, and I've never had such a simple one take 2 appointments before.
Also, I find the fact that you now only validate for 1 hour disappointing.
