(I am in California)
My dentist tells me that sedation costs $500
So I'm like "That sounds steep, but ok"
This "Sedation" consists of 2 valium I take the night before the crowns
Then a solution I drink before the procedure...they say I'll fall asleep.
I DON'T, however. I was awake and conscious the entire time.
they're like "Oh its fine."
then I'm told today "Yeah you owe us $500 for that." I argue that I paid for sedation, but they said it isn't their fault it didn't work.
i'm like "Tell me how 2 valium and some tylenol pm solution that doesn't work merits me paying $500"
And she's like Well you agreed to it and we were monitoring your heartrate, etc.
imo this is bullshit
but I don't think I have a way to not pay it. :\
Especially b/c I've paid them like $9000 this year so far for crowns/etc
Looking at their yelp page they are rated poorly b/c "They do good work, but I've had easier sells at a used car dealership"
Which is true. Everything is an extra and none of it, conveniently, is covered by my insurance.
Help? Advice? Or am I screwed?
