HERE IS ONE WAY YOU ARE BEING RIPPED OFF BY DENTISTS
You want to see how easily a greedy dentist can rip you off? Have a look at this 2013 price list from one Chinese lab (there are hundreds more just like this one), and you’ll see crowns from just $25. Thousands upon thousands of dentists (perhaps yours too) are secretly buying these crowns behind their patients’ backs…while charging their poor victims (I mean, patients) $2,000, and often even more.
This rampant profiteering greed is an absolute disgrace…and the fact that the Australian Dental Association (ADA) says nothing to dentists to stop doing it, or to the public to inform (or even better, warn) the public about it, goes to show you exactly who it is that the ADA really seems to care about. And it is definitely NOT you, that’s for sure.
Ring the ADA on +61 2 9906 4412 (don’t email because they’ll just delete it), be angry, and register your strongest possible complaint. Get your friends to ring too, because this appalling greed MUST be stopped. If it’s not, then it is YOU (and your kids) who will be paying the costs, and suffering the terrible consequences for a very long time to come.
The very best way to find a decent and honest dentist that will not secretly sell you these Chinese crowns is……talk to the technicians (in your area) and ask them to help you find one. You can also ring a group called OHPA (02 8006 1916) that is full of Aussie technicians – or, perhaps you may wish to visit dentalaware.com.au, where you will see a list of Aussie dentists you should consider contacting.
Like the Title says – Here is one way greed-driven dentists are ripping you off, but it’s far from the only way. More to come later about this, so stay tuned.
Good luck, and please email or blog for more information.
