I never had any problems with dentists until I moved to my current town. I started going to one of the national chain dentists because the office was convenient.

1) I did not find their prices for routine cleaning, exam, and check-up all that agreeable like they say on the TV.

2) My second visit there (a year after the first) all of a sudden I need 5 fillings! Yank job! So, I dumped them and started seeing a new dentist and I'm still waiting for him to notice those cavities. It's been 6 years now. His prices are better too. Just like all my previous dentists

It costs $$$ for dental work nowadays -- especially if we retirees have no coverage, as we may have when we were working.

Have folks here experienced seeking a "second opinion" for a specific issue, one that may cause you to change dentists totally (which is probable if you get ANYTHING done elsewhere, of course)?

I did that once, years ago, and was happy to change. No big deal. The new one simply requested records and off we went.

Just wondering what others have experienced.
