Austin dental arts w/ Dr. Shah! Best dentist I’ve ever had

I’ll check her out.

Austin has a huge issue with dentists. Even getting an appointment for a cleaning is a challenge. $800 for a cleaning is ridiculous.

Yes it is crazy. I’ve been calling 10+ offices and some of them don’t have availability until April or May next year. And yeah when I heard $800 I immediately knew it’s not right without checking what I paid for previously. Idk why they think they can ask me to pay all of that upfront.

This is a bit far but advance dental care in Hutto!

I go to forest family dentistry. They have several locations now including in north suburbs. When I first went to him years ago he had one. Lead guy is Dr Bethel and great. Cleaning takes a while :). But prices are very normal. Very good about warranty or re work type situations.

They typically won’t let you schedule a cleaning until they have done a consult. Also, if you have Cigna as your insurance you should be aware they they are dropping out of that network.

Are you in north Austin or downtown?

I’m having a hard time staying motivated lately. Really apathetic about everything. Feels like I’m falling into a bad depressive slump. I’m getting more and more behind on work because I just can’t sustain focus for longer than a couple hours at a time. There’s no one to shift my workload to, and as much as the legal industry talks about lawyer mental health, it’s still a taboo topic. I know it’s the pandemic causing this downswing, but I don’t know how to shake myself out of this rut.
