Complaint: On 3/10/14 I came in for a routine dental cleaning, that is covered by my dental insurance twice per year. They said that I had not had x-rays in a couple of years and should take some. Then sitting in the chair, the dentist examined my gums and the technician proceeded to clean my teeth. When I was checking out, I was presented an $80.00 payment for x-rays and periodontal exam. I was floored because I had an appointment to get my teeth cleaned only. Two days later, on 3/12/14, my wife, ***** ******, had a dental cleaning appointment with Comfort Dental and when they requested x-rays, she refused and they made her sign a waiver that she refused the x-rays. Once she sat in the dental chair to get her teeth cleaned, the technician came in and said the dentist would not clean her teeth without the x-rays. ***** left! What kind of scam is this? I was not informed of these additional charges and should have been given the choice. I want my money back!!
Desired Settlement: Comfort Dental needs to inform the patients of the charges for services not requested. Instead their behavior appears to be about the patient dental care and then charges are applied without any prior notification. This is not a good way to do business. I scheduled a teeth cleaning and that is exactly what I should have received without any additional charges. I am outraged at the additional cost.
