I wonder if he's one of those crazy mavericks who got fed up with insurance billing and hmos and just decided to do a cash and carry type of deal.
|I would absolutely not do general anywhere but in a hospital, with a pediatric anesthesiologist alongside the dentist. The dentist needs to concentrate on the dentistry, and the anesthesiologist can focus on the child. I don't know if the dentist has hospital privileges, if the peds do, etc, so that's a hard one to answer. I'd research them all and interview them all, then go with my gut. Provided the dentist has hospital privileges and can work there, the dentistry isn't any different on an anesthetized patient, so you're fine there. The peds wouldn't work on a 2 year old? So who do they work on? If you love and trust your dentist, I would start there, and get your referrals from him.|

When I told her I had to go home and discuss it with my dh and that I'd probably be getting a second opinion before going ahead, she looked at me like I had two heads! DH and I both have good jobs with decent salaries and this is a lot of money for us. Do other people just write out the check?
