Do you think, on average, that Dentists charge too much for their services?


Dentists cite high overhead, college debt and insurance costs as excuses for charging what they do. Yet, most people do not have insurance, and even when they do, it rarely covers important costs. Dentists argue that people are paying for their services, not the cost of the materials they use, and justify sometimes charging $25,000 to $100,000 for certain dental procedures such as implants and whole ridge replacements. What think you?

    Even if you do, it doesn't cover much of the big stuff. Implants, for example. You're right, though, something really needs to be done about this issue.

    It is, but you do have to protect your health. There is more to teeth than being able to eat!

    To a certain extent I agree with you, but I also feel that many dentists are greedy. There is no reason why someone should charge $25,000 for a bridge with implants when someone else is charging $10,000;...which I still think is too much!
