Searching for the perfect dentist can be much like searching for the perfect car: tedious. You want what’s best for the best price. There are many things to consider when deciding whom to trust with your mouth, and money often plays a major role in this decision. Prices for dental work can vary greatly depending on where you go, and this often confuses and angers patients. Why does one dentist charge $1200 for dental work when another dentist charges $800 for the same procedure? It might seem like the pricier dentist is trying to rip you off, but a recent blog post uncovers the reasoning behind price ambiguity in the dental field.
The price of dental work depends upon many things that (99% of the time) don’t include scamming you out of your money. Much of what you pay goes towards the quality of the work you receive and the upkeep of the dental practice. If your dentist is using the best equipment and has a high-tech lab (which most people would prefer), then you will generally pay more but warrant better results.
