he is a great dentist with a great staff. I started with him when he was part of another older established practice. he is a pro, knows what he is doing, but since he moved out on his own, and set up his facilities with all kinds of modern ultra fancy computer aided equipment, I believe his overhead has gotten quite high. over the last two or three years i have routinely paid more and more of "patient share" costs for routine procedures. this has caused a lot of unexpected charges, or charges that exceeded initial estimates, thereby straining my single-dad-with-three-kids-budget. i'm considering switching dentist to one who might not have all of the modern doo-dads.
