I am tired of lectures and the constant pressure to upsell.
I have tried to tell them many times. Turns the whole visit into a negative and tense experience.
After I say no to upsells they act like “disappointed” parents. If the goal is to promote different and beneficial behaviour instead of just $$$ then it has the exact opposite effect in me.
Also still have not gotten over the fact that the last major work that was done resulted in a small injury and discomfort. When I went back lots of talk but not once then or since had the dentist apologize or even express sympathy.
After more than 20 years I think with this dentist I am likely going to go a different dentist. My husband, daughter and sons already moved on.
