Can dentist ruin teeth?
Dental cleanings do not damage your teeth Even though the enamel is thin, it is also tougher than you think. A dentist cannot break down the enamel with simple dental tools. However, enamel erosion does occur over a long period of time when consuming a diet high in sugars, starches, and acidic foods.

What was the case of the dentist that sold his practice?
The case was an elderly mother against a dentist in practice for 20 years. The dentist had sold his practice to another dentist, inflating the margins and inflating the value of the practice with procedures that people didn’t need. I had seen this plenty of times before, but this abuse of patient care was egregious.
Why does my dentist refuse to pay my dental Bill?
Unfortunately, because her dental insurance only covers 50% of the cost (after she’s met a deductible), so Lori is stuck with a large bill after her many procedures.

Do you have to have a fee to get a quote?
