Many younger dentists are going into chain dentistry now, and they have to put us to meet.
Because of this, there are more and more cases of what some call “creative diagnosis.”
This is when a dentist will indicate more work is necessary and is actually required.
This leads to higher billable services and allows the dentist to make more money per patient than otherwise possible.
Some dentists feel that since the insurance is covering the work and the patient is not being billed, then the patient is not being hurt.
