I have very straight teeth.. no gaps and a perfect bite.. my first (and last) visit to a local dentist advised me to get braces. The dental assistant stood there with a very confused look on her face when that was recommended to me. What a nutcase.

I’ve been having tooth ache and every time I go back for the same exact problem they try to do the same exact X-rays. This time I declined. I think as patients we forget that we can decline their procedures.

Dental school is a battle. These deans charge whatever they want knowing these kids will take loans out. Don’t get me wrong it’s a high paying job and definitely leads to a steady life but still can be very strenuous for the new dentist. Plus corporate dentistry is very tough on the dentists.

It’s prob cause they’re 500k in debt from dental school

I don't believe half their bs, example, don't get anything but invisalign because it's not dentist supervised. No my guy, candid or other services literally 1-2k for non serious moves and orthodontist supervised, why would I pay 7k for this? Please be quiet and clean my teeth and I'll be on my way kthx.

I got ripped by my orthodontist on it! 😭😭😭

The 1 out of 10 dentists, or the 9 out of 10?

It doesn’t matter they’re all sketchy! I went to one office where my original dentist did a procedure cost effectively. In the same office they gave me another dentist for the following session. That dentist up charged me so much! Never went back because the office should’ve never placed me w any other dentist then my original

I was a dentist assistant at one point in my life and it saddens me to hear that so many have had terrible experiences with deceitful doctors. The ones I've worked for would never do that and would happily sit down with you to explain why they recommend certain procedures be done, including the technicalities behind them. They always give both the cheapest and the best options for the patient to choose, if there is a choice to be made.

Like anybody else I've had to move throughout my life and go through various dentists... some were definitely better than others! I still miss my favorite, that I had to move away from for work
