I posted this before but I may have worded it politically incorrect. I have not been to the dentist in 7 years. One of the main reasons that I have not been is that I saw a 60 minutes episode (or 20/20, I don't remember) where they sent a man with perfectly good teeth (examined by their own dentist) to 6-7 respectable dentists and he got 5 different diagnosis with 5 different recommended invasive treatments (on different teeths). Their own dentists called each one of the diagnosis and recommended treatments ridiculous. Now my question is how do you konw if your dentists is being honest when he/she makes a diagnosis and wants to start drilling? I don't have the expertise to look something up in a dental manual, so I just decided to stop going because my teeth don't bother me and what's the point if you don't know whether or not to believe your dentist? I guess another question that I am trying to get answered is do you guys really know what you are doing when you start drilling or is a lot dentistry arbitrary like when how they did it in the 60 minutes episode?
