I chipped one of my teeth on thursday night. My normal Dentist in Hutto was not able to fit me in and I went to Castle Dental. What a mistake that was. On the window they advertise X-rays and exam for $79 (normal charge on the poster said $159). I however was charged $180, my insurane was charged $175 and the exuse they gave me was, I had insurance. I later received a bill for $11.87 in addition to what i had already paid. The office personel told me over the phone, since I had insurance they had to charge me the outrageous price, it was "Compnay Policy". On top of it they told me I was going need a Crown and an emergency deep cleaning or I may loose some teeth. All this fictional myths totaled $2800. The next monday, I took myself to the Greatist Dentist in the world, well around here anyway, my normal Dentist. I had to redo my x-rays and exam. because the x-rays they took weren't good and an untrained monkey could of done a better Job at taking X-rays. My total with cleaning and a filling was $32. Makes you think doesn't it. If there was anything lower then one star they would get it. If there are enough people out there that had the same problem, we should all look into legal action for horrible and immoral business practices.
