Can i trust this Dentist supermarket?

I lost a front tooth about three months ago but this dentist,or should i say this dream team is giving me the run_around, and not adressing the real issue of a missing tooth that i want replaced as first priorty.

Their next plan is to pull all four wisdom teeth and ignore the real problem. I lost a FRONT tooth which should be a priority over back wisdom teeth.

So what is this all about?
I am new to dentistry and would appreciate some feedback.

Is this normal procedure or a money scam?

Hello, Sorry for your tooth. i know how u feel cuz i went through ALOT in the past with Dental Drama.
I wanted to ask if your Wisdom teeth are impacted?
If so maybe that's why they want to fix those first. BUt if they're not not sure why...
I would think they can make more $ giving you a bridge or a implant for your front tooth so $ making part doesn't sound right. I learned from the past is that .. WE're the ones who are paying for them to do the service so If you want the front taken care of u need to tell the Dr you want the front teeth done 1st. If not ask why and if your GUT tells u somethings not right, go else where who can understand your needs.
Keep us posted.

Re: Can i trust this Dentist supermarket?

It's hard to say if it's normal or a scam.

I have a tendency to believe people are honest, and ask lots of questions. I'm also suspect that some people will selfishly look out for themselves first...we all know that's unfortunately normal in our society.

If it were me, and I just felt they weren't being fair or considerate to my concerns, then I wouldn't hesistate to find someone else. When I was younger, I'd stick it out some. But later in life, I found that in my gut if I felt that the situation was not right, then I'd change in a minute.
