I have just passed 26 so I no longer am on my parent's insurance. I have a high deductible crappy plan of my own. I decided to go to the dentist today because they had an offer of 59 dollars for xrays and cleaning. I went there today, got my xrays taken and then the dentist refused to do my routine cleaning. He said I had SRP and needed deep cleaning which will cost me 400 dollars. I didn't really like the price and I said forget it! However the dental office wouldn't let me leave until I paid the 49 dollars for the "examination" without the cleaning. The dentist said that he can't just do a normal cleaning knowing I had gum disease because that can cause him to lose his license. So basically now I got no cleaning done whatsoever and I'm down 49 dollars. Is this legal?
