Services & Procedures
There is an old business school adage: "Speed, quality, price: Pick two." This applies to dental services. Be a discerning consumer. Quality takes time and uses superior materials, which are not inexpensive.
Use caution if an office offers the lowest price around (say, $19.99 exams, the consequences of which are explained below) or rushes people through (say, 40 minute cleaning appointments); the business school equation tells you which aspect of service is compromised.
