I was basically forced by insurance to name a dentist sight unseen and so far both dentist I have gone to have been more interested in money than the patient. Town Care Dental refuses to clean my teeth unless I have a more deeper, more EXPENSIVE, (insuance does not cover this cleaning)
done first. I have never had gum issues or any problems with my teeth other than your every day run of the mill problems. I told them I didn't want the expensive, deep cleaning, just the regular cleaning and they refused!!!! What kind of medical professional refuses treatment with no avenue of discussion????? This tells me that money comes first at this office.
First and foremost it is our philosophy to treat and provide the required dental care necessary to keep our patients oral health in the best possible condition. For that one reason alone we do not bill insurance companies for unnecessary procedures. Plus without a healthy set of gums to hold your teeth firmly in place you would not have much of a smile. Furthermore, periodontal disease is far more common then people think. If it isn?t detected and diagnosed early enough it can cause other health issues. That is why it is so important to have your gums checked regularly as well as your teeth.
