In recent years I’ve been seeing more and more dental office’s offering cheap dental check-ups in order to get patients in the door and then sell them on unnecessary treatments.
I have done my best to educate my patients on these often misleading tactics, but every so often I end up with a visit from a patient to fix the mess that another dentist performed.
Now, I’m not bashing every dentist that offers enticing specials, more so the dentists that are taking advantage of people to make up for the lost revenue by offering cheap “intro level” services.
I think we would do well to remember who we are and the promises and commitments we made to each of our patients the moment we took an oath to always look for the best option for the health of each of our patients.
I’m going to continue to continue to write from time to time and share my experiences and lessons that I’ve learned over the years.
I do hope that you’ll read what I have to say.
