I agree bu the IAOMT dentist near me is extremely expensive. Some of the things he does are not necessary and will cost me a ton of money that insurance won't cover. He asks for 650 dollars up front just for a check up but it is an hour and a half check up. I feel, however, it is over the top. All I need is 30 minutes to discuss what I want and show him the xrays and that's that.
