Top 3 Dental Scams And How To Avoid Them [2021]

Aubrey Hanson

Introduction

Dentists commit dental scams by treating nonexistent cavities, giving low-quality dental care, and charging for procedures they never performed.

Because the average person knows little about dental care or what to expect in terms of cost, it is easy for dentists to commit dental scams.

Every day countless Americans are scammed out of their hard-earned money by dentists who value cash over integrity. This is wrong!

In this blog, we will discuss the many types of dental fraud and how to protect yourself from becoming a victim.

What is a Dental Scam?

When a dentist supplements their income with unnecessary or phantom procedures, they are committing a dental scam.

Read on to learn about the dangers of dental scams!

The Dangers of Dental Scams

The harsh reality of modern dentistry is that many dentists scam their patients for profit.

When you sit down in a dental chair and lean back, mouth exposed, you are putting yourself at the mercy of a stranger.

The only difference between the person standing over you and someone on the street is the level of dental education. While this education qualifies your dental professional to care for teeth, it doesn’t make them trustworthy.

Many dentists cheat the system. They perform worthless procedures, over charge for services, and practice low-quality dentistry to line their pockets. This is wrong!

dental scam

Every day people visit the dentist expecting honest service, but instead find themselves victims of dental scams. They are sold fake dental plans, or convinced they need painful and sometimes dangerous surgery that is not covered by dental insurance. They are marginalized, manipulated, lied to, and scammed. This is wrong!

Continue reading to learn the different types of dental scams and how to protect yourself!

Types of Dental Scams

Dentists everywhere are committing various types of dental scams and defrauding the American public. They’re joining the ranks of annoying scammers that call our cell phones and send us emails. The only difference is, they’re effecting your health.

There are many ways your dentist can scam you out of your hard-earned money. A few of these include:

Phantom Procedures

This dental scam is committed when dentists bill patients for procedures they never performed. 

Charges can be as low as the cost of an extra numbing agent to a full blown medical procedure. Either way, it’s wrong.

Whether it’s $1 or $1,000, if you’re paying for something you haven’t received, you’re being scammed.

So, be vigilant! Review every bill before paying to make sure you’re receiving all procedures and treatments listed.

Low-Quality Dentistry

If a patient has a procedure done that is flawed, where do they go to fix it?

Likely back to the original dentist. This doubles the dentist’s profit.

Because of this, dentists will do poor work to further profit from the patient in the future.

If they cause problems, they will eventually profit from fixing them. Simple, right?

Since there’s no quick monetary benefit to doing excellent work, they do shoddy work instead. 

Don’t fall for this. If your dental professional can’t get it right the first time, maybe they’re not trying to.

Unnecessary Procedures

Dentistry is often subjective. You could go to ten dentists and receive ten different treatment plans.

This subjectivity turns to fraud, however, when dentists perform treatments that are obviously unnecessary. 

Some dentists will prescribe treatments that are blatantly unnecessary – just to make a higher profit!

An example of this type of dental scam is replacing metal amalgam fillings.

Some dentists in the past have claimed that these fillings can cause mercury poisoning and should always be replaced with expensive,  modern, composite fillings.

The problem is — scientists have not found any proof that these fillings are dangerous.

Replacements are completely unnecessary unless there are other factors.

So, do your research! If your dentists claims you need something done, get a second or third opinion to make sure.

As you can see, there are many ways your dental professional can scam you. 

So, when you go to the dentist, it is best to come prepared.

Read on to learn how to spot dental scams before you can be taken advantage of!

How to Spot Dental Scams

There are some universal warning signs. Not every dental professional that does these things is running a dental scam, but keeping these red flags in mind can be helpful. Here are a few to watch out for:

Advertisements

Dentists often advertise cheap rates to get patients in the door, only to manipulate them into more expensive procedures. Good dentists have usually been in the area long enough to build up a client base through word of mouth. So, they don’t need to advertise flashy rates to get new patients.

If a dentist office is spending a lot on advertising, it can also mean they’re struggling to get clients in the door. This speaks to the quality of dentistry because an established dental professional with a loyal clientele wouldn’t have to advertise so widely. Don’t have the wool pulled over your eyes. Beware of false advertising!

dental scams

Overly-Eager Dentists

If your dentist seems over-eager when suggesting a dental procedure, watch out!

When a dental professional says a procedure must be done immediately or is unclear about the process and cost, this may be a dental scam. Transparency is key! So, if you feel like your dentist isn’t giving you the full story, run!

Free Offers

The old saying goes, “if it’s too good to be true, it probably is”. This is true for free dental work.

Offices may offer a free cleaning or teeth whitening but then diagnose other expensive procedures to make their money back. This was the case with the Aspen Dental scam in 2012. So, beware of free offers!

Chain Dental Companies

Dental practices run by corporate organizations are rarely regulated in most states. This lack of regulation leaves room for unethical practice and scams to occur.

Dental chains focus on profit margins over dentistry itself. 

Chain dentists are driven by corporate greed and morally impaired by aggressive revenue targets. They often use their status to prey on unsuspecting patients by performing unnecessary procedures for profit and putting patients at risk. 

dental fraud

Sales-Tactics

Corporate dental chains often use harmful and manipulative sales tactics like “bait and switch.” Patients choose their services because of a low advertised cost but are presented with more expensive services and falsely told they need braces, deep cleaning or even a root canal. This is unethical. This is wrong. This is a dental scam.

How to Prevent Becoming a Victim of Dental Scams

There are many steps you can take to help reduce the risk of falling victim to a dental scam. 

Here are a few helpful rules to follow to protect yourself:

Review All Your Bills

It is always important to review the bills you pay, but reviewing your dental bills has become increasingly important.

With dentists carrying out dental scams every day, going over all bills and reviewing charges regularly has never been more crucial. 

Looking over your dental bills will help protect you from becoming a victim of dental fraud. So, check over any dental bills whether you or your insurance company pays them.

A second look can catch a phantom procedure and save you from being taken advantage of.

scams at dentist

Trust Your Instincts

It’s completely reasonable to be suspicious of your local dental professional. If you feel uncomfortable, there’s probably a good reason. So, don’t be afraid to go with your gut. You can always get a second opinion and return if you feel comfortable.

Get A Second Opinion

For major procedures that seem out of the blue, check with another dentist first. Having two appointments can be expensive but an unnecessary procedure would cost much more.

Don’t trust your dentist to make the right decision. Get a second opinion or even a third and be sure before you act!

Do Your Research

Researching dental procedures can save you the pain and cost of unnecessary dental procedures. If you take a day to research the procedure, you may find other options that are more suitable for you. You may even save yourself from becoming a victim of unnecessary treatment.

A dentist will likely not tell patients about their competition, so you may be able to find better options for you through personal research. For example, Brighter Image Lab PressOn Veneers are available Lab Direct at a discount.

Choose Brighter Image Lab

Here at Brighter Image Lab, we offer a great option for those looking to upgrade their smile. Our unique Lab Direct process allows us to serve clients through an innovative online process by which clients are able to achieve a new smile easily, without unnecessary procedures or an inflated bill, in fact, without even seeing a dentist.

The creation of our PressOn Veneers does not require a dentist, and the impression needed to create the clip-on veneer is simple enough to complete at home.

At Brighter Image Lab, we have only one goal, and it’s not to line our pockets with stolen money. Our goal is to make sure that people who desire a better smile can get one. No procedures, no pain, and no stings attached!

Take your smile into your own hands! Avoid becoming a victim of dental fraud by cutting out the ones responsible – dentists!

Who is Responsible for Dental Scams?

Two of the many factors that contribute to the issue of dental scams are the growing cost of dental school and lack of professional oversight.

The growing cost of dental school contributes to the crisis of dental scams because it puts pressure on new dentists to make money fast. 

With new dentists being spit out of Universities with hundreds of thousands of dollars in student debt, the dental industry has become a cesspool of con men looking to pay off their bills. Essentially, patients are unknowingly footing the bill for their dentists’ education. How does this happen? Through a lack of professional oversight.

In the United States, dentistry has far less oversight than any other branch of medicine. So, your dentist is not being regularly checked to ensure quality control and ethical practice. This is dangerous.

The lack of oversight from the state licensing board can be especially harmful if your dentist practices alone.

With the licensing board dropping the ball and no other dentist around to object, a solo dental professional essentially has free reign. This makes it extremely easy for them to take advantage of people.

The crisis of dental scams is one of the biggest problems in the dental industry today. It costs vulnerable Americans thousands of dollars and causes unnecessary pain and discomfort.

Don’t become a victim! Be smart, follow the rules, and stay vigilant!

Conclusion

Far too often, dentists scam vulnerable people.

They inflate bills, charge for imaginary procedures, and even provide treatment by improperly trained or unlicensed staff. This disgusting display of negligence proves a blatant lack of ethics, which prevents the practice of responsible dentistry.

Brighter Image Lab makes removable veneers for people who want to improve their smile. There are no extra charges and no unnecessary procedures, just the finest dental veneers for a price you can afford. At Brighter Image Lab, we know that life can be hard, so we make smiling easy.

dentist lied about cavities

My Dentist Lied About Cavities

Aubrey Hanson
My dentist lied about cavities

Have you ever been suspicious that your dentist lied about cavities to you? Did you have to pay more than you thought was necessary for procedures you didn’t fully understand? You’re not alone. 

My Dentist Lied About Cavities

Many years ago I was in college. In between the hubbub of midterms, sleepless nights, and Ramen noodles, I heard a radio commercial for Mint Dentistry.

I didn’t know anything about Mint Dentistry, but I figured they were reliable because I had seen their billboards. I showed up thinking I would get a quick cleaning and be on my way. I had never had any dental issues before.

To my surprise, when I went in to get a routine check-up, the hurried dentist told me that I had a cavity. I promptly set an appointment to get it filled and the next week they completed the filling. I paid several hundred dollars which was probably more painful than the uncomfortable procedure.

dentist lied about cavities

Six months later, I went in for another routine check up and to get my teeth cleaned. The dentist came in and said that I had two more cavities that I should get filled as soon as possible. I became suspicious. 

I Got A Second Opinion

I scheduled a dentist appointment at the office I had gone to when I was growing up. The dentist was a family friend and I trusted her to be honest with me.

I told her that this the dentist at Mint Dentistry had recommended I have two fillings.

She exclaimed that there was absolutely nothing wrong with my teeth and that a filling would be completely unnecessary. When I had gone to Mint Dentistry, their dentist had lied about cavities to me.

It Happens Everywhere

I’ve taken time to research this phenomenon and I’m not the only one whose dentist lied about cavities. It apparently is happening more and more. Not just with cavities, but with much more extreme procedures. There are many reasons dentists commit fraud like this:

High Dental School Costs

The cost of going to dental school has doubled since the 90’s. Young graduates and even dentists years into practicing are having to pay off incredible amounts of money for their education. 

The business may have become less lucrative than they had originally planned, and you can imagine how tempting it would be to over-diagnose to make up the difference. 

Lying dentist profit from unnecessary procedures

Quotas From Large Corporations

Struggling small dental practices are often bought out by large dental corporations like Mint Dentistry and Modern Dentistry.

Dental corporations manage the business aspects of their practice. After giving up control to executives in offices far from the dentist’s clinic, dentists are often at the mercy of their new bosses. These non-medical professionals are working toward making a profit and have full authority to give dentists quotas for procedures, and to threaten them with a pink slip if those quotas aren’t met. 

Can you tell if your dentist is lying by looking in their eyes?

Competition Is Higher

Older dentists are retiring later and later while new dentists are still entering the market. As this continues it becomes more difficult for dental clinics to be profitable. If a dentist is struggling to make payroll because he doesn’t have enough patients, you can imagine how easy it would be for him to simply prescribe an expensive procedure in order to make ends meet. 

What Can You Do?

New Technology

Technology has changed a lot and so has the dental industry. There are now many reputable dental solutions that are available commercially. Companies like these are not meant to replace necessary procedures, but offer innovative products that fix problems only dentists have been able to in the past.

Brighter Image Lab has been offering Lab Direct dental alternatives since 1997 and offers affordable choices like teeth whitening, tooth polishing, and even dental veneers. 

Stay Skeptical

Many honest dentists practice ethically everyday despite the number of dentists engaging in deceptive practices such as lying about cavities, prescribing unnecessary procedures, and over-prescribing procedures to fix issues that patients could do without.

While there isn’t a way for you to be 100% certain your dentist is one of the good ones, you should stay skeptical, and always trust your instincts if something doesn’t seem right. If you’ve been told you need an overly expensive procedure, get a second opinion like I did. It may be hard to justify the cost of the second check-up, but you can end up saving a ton of money in the end. Don’t let your dentist lie about cavities.

Non-Profit Dentist

As the number of unemployment cases grows due to the Covid-19 pandemic, dental expenses may be more burdensome for individuals and families than ever before. The unemployed need an affordable dentist, but it’s tough to find one – especially during these challenging times.

Even though it is difficult to pay for dental work, the need still remains. Non-profit dentists from a variety of organizations and clinics provide cheap or free dental care to people of the community in need.

Below is an extensive list of resources, both for those looking to find free (or low cost) dental work, and for those looking to donate to the worthy cause of promoting oral health.

With limited funding, many of these organizations do not offer cosmetic dentistry services, leaving people with stained, missing, or crooked teeth without options. 

While Brighter Image Lab is a for-profit company, their business model has altruistic undertones. (non-profit arm is New Life Smile found at newlifesmile.org)

Their owner, Bil Watson, often posts videos on the company vlog showing the transformation of patients who have dark backstories. 

New Life Smile has funded smiles created by Brighter Image Lab for ex-convicts, veterans, and victims of domestic abuse. The products, however, do not lack quality and have been used by pageant contestants and fashion models.

      Want a Great Smile WITHOUT the Dentist? Clip On Veneers is the Answer!

      A nice smile is a huge part of your appearance. Issues with your smile, on the other hand, can be a big source of insecurity, anxiety, and embarrassment.

      People with a nice smile are also scientifically proven to be perceived by others to be more confident, happy and intelligent. 

      With so much riding on your smile, you’d think there would be more options than the overwhelmingly expensive and dreaded dentist office.

      There actually are! One great answer is clip on veneers!

      Clip On Teeth Veneers

      Clip on veneers are a no-dentist solution to all kinds of dental imperfections: stained teeth, crooked teeth, even missing teeth! Clip on veneers are what they sound like they would be. They are dental veneers that clip right onto your existing teeth. They come in full arches to remain secure. 

      They don’t require any complex dental work like removing enamel, removing teeth, or intense dental cementing.

      The only thing you need to do is to take a simple dental impression. You can actually do that from the comfort of your own home!

      But there are lots of companies out there selling this. How can you know which clip on veneers are the best?

      One company stands out among the rest. That company is Brighter Image Lab.

      Life-Changing Clip On Veneers Reviews

      searching-online-for-clip-on-veneers

      At Brighter Image Lab we have had the privilege of seeing the amazing impact our products have on people’s lives.

      People who have grown up in low-income situations have often not had the dental care they needed. Their dental imperfections have held them back from being confident and feeling attractive. The imperfections also have affected the way others see them.

      It’s amazing to see the impact of a new smile on someone who has struggled throughout his or her life. Those who have suffered with bad smiles, often have trained themselves to avoid smiling altogether. Their Brighter Image Lab clip on veneers allow them to smile for the first time in years!

      You can watch a few of the best clip on reviews yourself:

      How Much Are Clip On Veneers Elsewhere?

      Clip on dental veneers cost different prices depending on where you get them. They typically range from $400 to $2,000.

      Many on the lower end in price are also on the lower end in quality. It is suspected that many companies use a process called vacuum forming rather than designing each individual veneer arch. The vacuum forming process simply makes a copy of one’s existing teeth, including many imperfections.

      A client’s smile may be covered, but crooked teeth will still be visible. The plastic is often thick – making it obvious that the individual is wearing the cheap clip on veneers that can even make him or her look comical.

      $400 is too much to pay for a laughable smile.

      On the higher end of the price scale, the $2,000 clip on veneers are often offered in dental offices. It costs a lot to maintain a dental office and patients bear the weight of that cost.

      The most notable difference between an expensive, dentist office clip on veneer and one from Brighter Image Lab is that a dental hygienist will take your dental impression. 

      A dental impression is not an extremely complicated step, and Brighter Image Lab has directed clients on how to successfully do it for over twenty years.

      An unnecessary $1,000 dental impression is quite expensive!

          Temporary Veneers – A Great Smile Solution. No Dentist Needed.

          Do you ever look in the mirror and simply wish you had a brand-new smile? Do you suffer a bad smile or from dental problems like crooked teeth, chipped or stained teeth, or even missing teeth?

          You Likely Think the Process Will Be Difficult

          dentist-with-tools

          Stressful Dentists Appointments

          Do you picture long, expensive, painful dentist appointments that you would have to take off work for? No one likes going to the dentist and having a stranger poke around in their mouth. It’s also difficult to find a dentist you can trust won’t overcharge you.

          You likely will have to sheepishly ask around for references to make sure you can find someone you trust to do the work.

          Even then, there may be a long wait time to simply get an initial consultation.

          Unreasonably High Prices

          You probably think fixing your smile will cost a ton!

          Dentists can charge several thousand dollars per tooth to do cosmetic fixes. Also, dental insurance almost never covers those cosmetic procedures.

          Most people simply cannot afford this crazy expense when there are other bills to pay. It’s especially difficult to justify the cost for something optional and cosmetic.

          Painful and Intense Procedures

          Even if the procedures were affordable, many people avoid going to the dentist are out of a reasonable fear of pain.

          expensive-dental-procedures

          Many dental procedures are painful or damaging. Traditional dental veneers require tooth enamel removal that shaves off .5 MM of one’s perfectly healthy teeth!

          But lucky for you, you can fix your smile without any of these issues!

          More on The Best Temporary Veneers

          How Long Do Temporary Veneers Last?

          Temporary veneers for teeth are somewhat of a misnomer. Brighter Image Lab veneers can potentially last five or more years without needing to be replaced.

          Can I Eat While Wearing Temporary Veneers?

          Veneers are designed to survive a social setting so you should not have to take them out to eat. Client experiences vary and some foods are more problematic than others. One should take caution in eating certain items like steak, nuts, or popcorn.

          How Can I Get Temporary Veneers for Teeth?

          Simply go to Brighter Image Lab’s website to browse the different options: the PressOn Veneers, the BILveneer, and the IncrediBIL. There you’ll find these types of temporary veneers for teeth, as well as some other helpful products like a tooth polisher and teeth whitening kit.

          Do Temporary Veneers Come In Different Colors?

          Yes. They come in three shades. The brightest is typically the best for people who need their smile to pop: TV personalities, pageant contestants, etc.

          How Long Does It Take?

          From the time the lab receives the impression, it takes around 30 days. This may vary somewhat in 2020 due to Covid restrictions. There is also an option to pay for 15-day priority delivery.

          How Do I Maintain the Temporary Veneers?

          For temporary veneer aftercare, simply soak the veneers in denture cleaners each night. This gets rid of any bacteria that build up while wearing them throughout the day.

          Are the Temporary Veneers Available Outside of the US?

          Yes, Brighter Image Lab services countries around the world. Around 40% of their orders come from outside of the US. The main office is in Ft. Worth, TX but they can deliver anywhere that can receive a FedEx package.

              Finding An Affordable Dental Clinic

              Aubrey Hanson

              Affordable Dental Clinic

              It can be challenging to find an affordable dental clinic. For many reasons the cost of dentistry has continued to skyrocket over the past decade and even basic care can be a huge expense.  

              Maintaining oral health is vital for overall health at any income level. Prices should not keep people from getting the care they need. Read on for some helpful tips for how to find affordable dental work. 

              affordable dental clinic

              Dental Insurance Isn’t The Answer

              In industries similar to dentistry, patients are shielded from expense through insurance. Insurance distributes previous payments to pay for necessary procedures. Insurance companies are heavily involved in the entire process and adequate insurance will charge the patient an affordable co-pay. 

              Dental insurance, however, is much less inclusive. It will typically only pay for yearly check-ups, a few fillings, and will split the cost of more extensive procedures. 

              It can leave patients still having to pay tens of thousands of dollars if extensive work is needed. 

              Dental insurance often ends up not being cost effective so many people opt out of using it, even if it is within their means. 

              A Free Dental Clinic

              One option when seeking out an affordable dental clinic is free, charity dental work. Since oral health care is so important, philanthropic organizations around the country work to provide necessary resources to people who can’t afford a dentist. 

              You can use this resource to locate such clinics. 

              This option, however, is limited. Many people do not qualify to receive free work, and there may be extended wait times for care.

              A Sliding Scale Clinic

              Some dental offices offer prices that vary based on a patient’s financial status. Patients who make less have to pay less and vice versa.

              Dentists will likely include their sliding scale pricing on their website’s so simply search online for sliding scale clinics to find one in your area. There are also directories available that list out sliding scale affordable dental clinics. 

              A Dental School

              Dental schools offer dental services at a discounted price. Students will operate on patients under the supervision of their instructors. 

              This is a great option for people of all income brackets since the prices are the same for everyone and procedures are available to anyone. 

              Procedures, especially complex ones, may take much longer than a traditional dentist. Students are new to the techniques and processes and will naturally be a bit slower. 

              Dental Tourism

              dental-tourism

              An extreme way to find an affordable dental clinic, is to look outside of your home country. People from the US, Europe, and Australia have started this odd trend of traveling to get dental work done. Dental costs in other countries can be quite a bit cheaper that the savings covers the cost of the trip. 

              This option is only reasonable for patients who need (or want) extensive procedures and is unnecessary for average needs. 

              As one might think, engaging in dental tourism is quite risky and requires a great deal of research. 

              Some dangers are incompetent dentists, dental scams, infection risk, and many more. All dental tourism should be done with extreme caution. 

              A Dental Lab

              One alternative to finding an affordable dental clinic would be to connect with a customer-focused dental lab.

              Brighter Image Lab innovatively creates full-arch, removable dental veneers that they sell directly to clients without the need of a dentist. 

              A client can take their teeth’s impression from a mail-delivered impression kit. The lab will then take that impression and create unique veneers to perfect that client’s smile. 

              Rising dental costs keep many from the care they need

              While dentists often charge around $1,000 for veneers per tooth, Brighter Image Lab offers full arches starting at just $795. They also offer affordable financing with 100% approval. 

              Not all dental labs are equal though. Many offer similar items that do not fit well, last, or look like real teeth. Be sure to research extensively before purchasing from an online distributer. 

              Shop For Dentists

              A final way to find an affordable dental clinic is to simply do extensive research before choosing a dentist. You can call around ask dentists what they charge for specific procedures and what their philosophy is on how they set prices. 

              Some dentists work to advocate for their patients and will air on the side of frugality as they diagnose problems. Other dentists may tend to operate on patients as much as possible often-diagnosing citing that they make decisions out of heightened caution. This “shopping” will help you determine who will be best for both your oral health and your budget. 

              Preventative Measures

              wooden-toothbrushes

              Keeping your dental bills low does not just start with finding an affordable dental clinic, taking preventative measures will also help.

              Taking care of your teeth by brushing twice per day, flossing once per day, and having an annual dental checkup will help maintain your healthy teeth. Then you will not need as extreme procedures fixing issues down the road. 

              It is also important for children to receive proper dental care. Many issues later in life can be avoided if they receive good oral care from the start. 

              The Affordable Care Act or Obamacare offers dental insurance for children to help alleviate the burden of children’s dental costs. 

              Final Thoughts

              Finding dental care is extremely important. Everyone should maintain their dental health, no matter what their budget. The options above are some creative options for a variety of costs. If you have trouble finding an affordable dental clinic, reach out to us here at Brighter Image Lab – we’ll be glad to help you!

              Aubrey Hanson

              How Much Are Veneers, Really?

              If you go searching for prices of veneers, you’ll find a wide range of estimates. This makes sense because dental offices can vary widely by the types of veneers they offer or how experienced the dentists are.

              Location is also one of the biggest factors in determining what veneers cost across the United States. 

              To help you get an honest comparison, our team researched the prices of veneers across the country.

              Dental offices provided us information about their veneers. The costs varied from less than $1000 to over $5000 per tooth! Certain states and towns trended different directions. You can check your state and town to see the average for your area.

              Even after all of this research, we found that one place was the absolute cheapest

              Brighter Image Lab offers full veneer arches starting at $795. A full arch has many teeth as you can see below. The cheapest traditional dentist office veneer that we found in our research costed $750…per tooth! Most were twice that or more! 

              how much are veneers

              Veneers from a dentist office are an incredible expense, especially for people who need extensive work done. A full smile makeover from a dental office can easily cost tens of thousands of dollars. 

              Pricing Transparency

              Brighter Image Lab explains exactly what their clients must pay for their new smile. That is often not the case at dental offices.

              Many dental offices we contacted would not even quote a price range for veneers and would require patients have an expensive appointment before explaining potential costs.

              why-are-dentists-so-expensive

              Why Are Dentists So Expensive?

              Aubrey Hanson
              why are dentists so expensive

              Why Are Dentists So Expensive?

              Normal dental work and checkups can be quite expensive. A simple teeth cleaning can cost $90-$300, not to mention x-rays and the occasional filling. This is an expense many people cannot afford or prefer to avoid. 

              Avoiding preventative measures, however, can doom patients to incredibly expensive procedures in the future, like crowns, bridges, and the ever-dreaded root canal. All this explains why thousands of people search online every day, trying to find an affordable dentist.

              But why are dentists so expensive in the first place? Why does something as necessary as oral health have to break the bank? There are many reasons for this issue and several steps people are taking to make their care more affordable.  

              The High Cost of Being A Dentist

              frustrated-student

              It is easy to demonize dentists for the high fees they charge to their patients. We typically imagine them pocketing the entire bill and spending it on a fancy new car or luxury vacation. Some dentists are in fact, scam artists and have predatory pricing practices. But the reality for most dentists is that being a dentist in itself is expensive. 

              Why Are Dentists So Expensive?

              High Dental School Fees

              The cost of going to dental school has doubled since the 1990’s. This has left many young dental school graduates in over $200,000 of debt starting out. This dauting debt will hinder young dentists from earning a good living for several years. 

              Like all education, costs have grown and grown. In the past, students could quickly pay off the cost of an education, but today, crippling debts are the norm. This is the first of many changes driving up the cost of dental work. 

              High Starting Costs

              It costs quite a bit to run a dental practice. Starting costs will include office necessities and a ton of expensive dental equipment. High-end dentist chairs can cost $10,000 or more! The sum of these start-up costs is generally estimated to be as high as $500,000! 

              Dental technology requires a lot of research and development and is in an extremely niche market. To be able to develop the state-of-the-art technology that is now the norm, dental equipment companies have to charge a high premium. 

              Dental technology wasn’t always so advanced. The cost of this advancement trickles down to the patient sitting in the fancy (and expensive) dentist chair. 

              High Operating Expenses

              Dental offices have to pay rent costs and they have to have multiple staff on hand. There typically are receptionists, dental hygienists, and possibly other specialists who all have salaries that must be paid. 

              Gone are the days where a single dentist would set up his practice and operate it alone. The world has shifted and the demands of operating a modern practice are much higher. 

              expensive-dentist-with-patient

              High Marketing Expenses

              Dentists are retiring later and later in life, but new dentists are still entering the market at the same rate. Some markets now have too many dentists and they are having to compete more and more for each patient’s business. This means they have to add marketing expenses to their budget which also drives up the price of dental work for the patient. 

              In the past, dentists were able to simply open their practices and it was reasonable to expect a steady stream of patients through the door (as long as they were good dentists). The necessity of marketing is a new, expensive, and unfortunate phenomenon dentist have to navigate.

              Insurance Doesn’t Help Much

              Even though medical services in non-dental fields are often just as expensive as dental work is, patients are often shielded from the realities of these expenses, thanks to their standard health insurance plans. 

              People with health insurance often pay an affordable co-pay and are unaware of what the medical professional actually charges. 

              Dental insurance, on the other hand, does much less. It often only covers the cost of annual cleanings, some fillings, and just a portion of more expensive procedures. 

              Often, when a patient needs extensive work, dental insurance doesn’t help much. Many people don’t have dental insurance because of this.  A typical result is simply not going to the dentist, even though dealing with dental issues can be extremely necessary and avoiding treatment can be intensely painful and even deadly. 

              Possible Solutions

              Ask Questions

              Don’t hesitate to ask a dentist if there are cheaper options. Often you can avoid certain costs upon request, like bi-annual x-rays or deep cleanings. 

              Also, you don’t have to accept everything a dentist says at face value. After a diagnosis, go home and research the prescribed procedure. You can also get a second opinion or second quote that may be cheaper. 

              Dental Schools

              Dental schools, while expensive for students studying dentistry, can be quite cheap for patients. Dental schools often offer procedures at discounted rates.

              Dental students will do procedures under the supervision of more seasoned teachers. The work is often quite good but can take longer than a traditional dentist since the students are inexperienced and still learning. 

              Dental Tourism

              The interesting phenomenon known as dental tourism has become popular as dentists in the US (and Europe and Australia) have become unbearably expensive. 

              Patients will travel to countries to get procedures done at much more affordable prices. Incredibly, the cost of traveling and the foreign procedure is often cheaper than when procedures are done domestically. 

              This can be a good option for some people but there are many horror stories about botched procedures and crooked foreign dentists operating on tourists in unsanitized hotel rooms.

              Aubrey Hanson

              Do veneers really work for people? Do veneers actually help with problems like chipped teeth, gaps, and alignment issues?

              Are veneers worth it?

              The answer to each of the questions above is yes. Read on to discover why veneers are worth it and how they have been life changing for so many people. 

              Benefits Of Veneers

              Job Opportunities

              A smile is a big part of someone’s appearance. It’s one of the top things people notice first. It is proven that people who are more attractive are more likely to: 

              • Be interviewed for jobs
              • Be hired for jobs
              • Advance rapidly through promotions
              • Earn more (1)

              This is especially true in retail or sales jobs where someone interacts with customers or clients constantly. 

              Some jobs are even exclusively about attractiveness, like modeling. If top model, Lara, can use veneers to advance her modeling career, imagine what they could do for you!

              Bettering Yourself

              Some people did not have access to proper dental care earlier in life and were unable to afford the high cost of cosmetic dentistry. 

              Ginger had a lot of dental issues due to not getting proper dental care as a child. Her smile continued to deteriorate and she was unable to afford major dental work.

              She hid her dental malady by never allowing herself to smile showing her bad teeth.

              “This is going to change my life.”

              Ginger is proudly four years sober and has already worked to make her life better in so many ways. She saw getting veneers as the next step in her recovery process. 

              She wanted to be able to present herself well to others and to remove the distraction of her dental issues. 

              Her new veneers gave her exactly that.

              Types Of Veneers

              To help you answer this question for yourself, “Are veneers worth it?”, first you should understand the different types of veneers and what they do. 

              Traditional veneers

              Traditional veneers go on top of individual teeth requiring them to be filed down. The process is done in a dentist office and is irreversible.

              Press-On Veneers – Brighter Image Lab

              Press-On Veneers are a modern alternative to traditional veneers. They are a full arch for either top, bottom, or both arches of teeth. Press-On Veneers fit most teeth without any preparation necessary, and is only available lab direct from Brighter Image Lab. 

              What Do Veneers Actually Cost?

              Traditional veneers vary in cost depending on geographical location and individual dentist. They typically range from $1,000-$2,500 per tooth. Because it is cosmetic procedure, isn’t covered by most insurance plans.

              Press-On Veneers are a much more cost effective option, especially when a patient needs to cover many teeth. Brighter Image Lab offers full arches starting at $795.

              Workplace Discrimination – Bad Teeth

              Aubrey Hanson

              People with bad teeth experience a unique type of workplace discrimination and can find themselves in a vicious cycle that is almost impossible to escape!

              workplace discrimination

              Why Do Bad Teeth Cause Workplace Discrimination?

              Take a second and think about scary Halloween costumes or human-like monsters in horror movies. You will likely picture them with crooked, missing, or deeply-stained teeth. For some reason, many of us see imperfect teeth as scary! Unfortunately, bad teeth have a terrible effect on whether or not people get hired. 

              Bad teeth and discrimination go hand-in-hand. People tend to see people with bad teeth as being unreliable, having poor social skills, being less intelligent, and even being psychologically unstable! (3) Of course, none of these things are true, but the negative stereotypes tends to cause workplace discrimination. 

              Workplace Discrimination – “Perfect People”

              People who are seen as attractive don’t have these problems.  A 2017 study found that people who are more attractive are unfairly more likely to be:

              • Be interviewed for jobs
              • Be hired for jobs
              • To advance rapidly through promotions
              • Earn more (1)

              One of the top causes that determines someone’s attractiveness is their teeth and smile. (2) So if you have bad teeth, it doesn’t matter if you are hard-working, motivated, or a good citizen, the odds are stacked against you.

              Insecurities Caused By Bad Teeth

              People can sense prejudice and discrimination in the workforce. As they look for work, many people feel that their teeth and smile will keep them from the jobs they desperately need. They lose their confidence and take less risks. Many people feel incapable of finding a job because of their bad teeth.

              A dental school in Utah performed a study on a group of some of the most at-risk people. They worked with people who had been recently released from rehab and would likely struggle on their inevitable job search. The students provided free dental work to a percentage of patients and tracked their job search. They found that people who had dental care were twice as likely to get a job as those who didn’t. Unfortunately, not everyone gets an opportunity like this. Most people cannot afford the high cost of cosmetic dental procedures they need to get ahead. 

              Cosmetic Dentists Are Too Expensive

              expensive-dental-costs

              Cosmetic dental procedures to fix people’s teeth are insanely expensive. Cosmetic dentists often charge hundreds of dollars for a procedure done on a single tooth! If you want a full mouth reconstruction, you better cough up tens of thousands of dollars. 

              People with bad teeth should be able to find work. A ten thousand dollar entry fee into the workforce is unattainable for most! People are tired of this. When people don’t work, they don’t have money for dental care and their teeth keep getting worse and worse! It’s a new form of class warfare! Many people feel like they don’t have options. This vicious cycle has to end!
