SCARED OFF

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Opinion -

I AGREE with "Den­tist fees hurt" when he said in his let­ter in last week’s edi­tion that the Aus­tralian

Den­tal As­so­ci­a­tion should be mon­i­tor­ing the cost of den­tal pro­ce­dures.

Den­tists take X-rays ev­ery time you visit and al­ways find some­thing wrong, even if you just go for a clean. They then give you a list of what needs do­ing, plus the cost, which is so scary you aren't go­ing to go back and get the treat­ment done any­way. How can pen­sion­ers af­ford it? Den­tists will be old one day but when they need den­tal work they will be able to af­ford it be­cause of the fees they are charg­ing now. Name and ad­dress sup­plied.
