Second Opinion Roundup

Nov 23, 2009 Here are some pictures of “second opinions” I have given and what my thoughts were. When patients tell me that I am “more expensive” then another dentist in town, I can not help but imagine what type of dentistry this patient really want in their mouth. My answer, always, is to have the patient compare apples to apples, and oranges to oranges.  If you are looking for high quality dentistry that looks beautiful, is made by a top laboratory technician, and is designed and maintained to last (experience matters, but a lot of bad experience does not count!), then I am the...

Natural, Green Dentistry

Nov 23, 2009  Green Is Good.  We all know that by now. Most major companies are going green, people are buying green/natural products, and dentistry is no exception.

Is Dental Insurance Worth The Premium?

Nov 04, 2009 A recent article in Forbes (November 16, 2009) described the difference between dental insurance and dental discount plans.  It made some great points that I would like to mention here. According to this article, “the average individual dental insurance plan costs $554 – and that’s for a limited network of providers…  Even using one of these plan’s chosen (i.e., cheapie) dentists, you’ll have a 20% copay for routine fillings and a 50% copay for crowns and bridges.”  Your benefit is 2 free cleanings per year and an exam.  Reading the fine print you will quickly realize that the yearly...
