Dr. Marjan puts up promotional ad on a local magazine.
"New Patient Special - Check up, Cleaning, Necessary X-Rays $39.99"

I visited her for this Special. She looked my teeth and said, "I don't see any problem with your teeth. You need detail X-rays in order to check if there is any problem which is not included in the Special. You also need detail scaling to treat your teeth, which will incur substantial fees".

I said, "I don't feel any discomfort or have any problem either. Would you perform the normal X-rays and normal teeth cleaning as Special covers"

She said, "OK"

A hygienist came in and started 'buffering' my teeth. I felt strange because there was no X-Rays taken or cleaning first. It just had the buffering (usually the last step of cleaning). So I asked the hygienist why was only the buffering. The hygienist told me that was only what Dr. Marjan instructed to do. Then I asked Dr. Marjan why was that. She said that is the normal practice of her office that the 'normal clean is buffering only' otherwise belongs to 'deep scaling'.

I have been visiting many many dental offices since 70s and I have never seen such a new 'practice' until today with Dr. Marjan.

Is this a 'bait-n-switch' ? You will be the judge.

After I came back I try to research her credentials and education. Unfortunately I have no luck finding any.

By the way, I looked Dr. Marjan's 'Initial Oral Examination' definition in her website as follow:
"Your initial oral examination includes a visual examination, charting, periodontal probing, diagnosis and treatment recommendations. We will also take x-rays, which includes the panoramic x-ray for proper diagnosis of the anterior (front) and posterior (back) teeth as well as the bite-wing x-ray series for proper diagnosis of proximal decay of posterior teeth."
