Re: Please help ASAP ( temp. bridge)

I have to agree - and yes sometimes I think they do pull these figures out of the air - one dentist I spoke to about this issue said that some dentists do this to guage how much the patient is willing to pay - the more they sqawk the less they get charged - whereas mine told me he has set fees for everything so everyone is charged the same - he even showed me a print out of them. I would go back and complain about the temps and have them repaired and also ask to show the differences in the price quote on paper so you get an idea of what each procedure cost.
