<<3rd molars or wisdom teeth extraction>>

My dentist recommended these teeth be extracted some forty years ago. He said these teeth weren't necessary and were prone to a lot of problems.

I had them extracted on this recommendation.

He referred me out to an oral surgeon for the procedure. It's not clear to me how this put a new car in his driveway.

I think it's quite true that any dishonest service provider can find ways to screw his clients, which is why shopping around for someone whose advice you trust is a good idea.

<<Years ago I had a dentist that kept checking me for TMJ. WTF? That's apparently the most profitable item on the list.>>

Why did you see this dentist repeatedly if you didn't trust him to treat you competently and honestly?
