I went to see Dr Whiting because he was listed as an "in network" dentist by my insurer. Fortunately, I never got to see if Dr Whiting is a good dentist. He lost me when I priced a bridge.

He said that the cost would be the same as 3 crowns. His fee (when billing my insurance company) was $633 per crown - total = $1,899. My share would be 45% - $284.85 per tooth - my total = $854.55 (sounded reasonable to me).

The problem arose because he told me that the insurance might not cover the procedure. If the insurance denies the claim, Dr Whiting's fee (when billing me personally) would be $1,200 per tooth (he said that is his normal fee) - my cost = $3,600.

I decided that I could not do business with a person that would charge an individual that is uninsured almost twice what he would charge if that individual is insured. If he is willing to do the procedure for $633 when billing an insurance company, how can he justify charging almost twice that amount to someone without insurance coverage?

We never got to see if the insurance company would cover my bridge. I walked out on him because of what I considered his ethics (or lack thereof).

The rest of the country seems to be trying to lessen the burden on people that can't afford insurance.

I visited Dr. Whiting for the first time a few months ago. The office staff was exceptionally nice and very helpful. The hygienist that cleaned my teeth was great. She was gentle and was really educational. All in all, a great trip to the dentist!
