You know, the one office that does it all? The cleanings, the fillings, the root canals, the extractions, and the perio work? Why does everything have to go through a specialist?? I have yet to find a dental insurance plan that covers the specialists according to the dental coverage guideline. If I go see my regular dentist for a cleaning, covered at 100% twice a year with a $50 deductible. If I have a cavity it's covered at 80% after the deductible is met. If I have endodontics or periodontics also covered at 80%....unless I go to a specialist and I always am referred out to a specialist because the ONLY danged dentist in my area that is in my network is only a GENERAL Dentistry guy...he doesn't do endo or perio. So, I have this horrible pain up above my back molar where there is a crown that is likely 25 years old. I go see my dentist and his hygienist takes an x-ray (he is not in the office this week, great). She says she sees inflammation in the nerve area...OR...it could be sinus inflammation, but because of my stupid knee replacement, I have to see someone ASAP because if it is dental/oral related I can't risk getting an infection that could travel to the knee. WTH?!?!?!? I ask her to please give me a script for antibiotics and I'll see the dentist next week when he returns...she says it doesn't matter because he doesn't do anything but general dentistry...no endo/perio. When I was a kid/young adult, etc., our dentist did EVERYTHING. Go see your Dr for a bunion or plantars wart? Boom, she sends you to the podiatrist. Our old family Dr treated everything. What, why oh why is everything specialised???? I hate it!!!!
