Since when are all dentists super scheisty? Every person I talk to about this has a story about the dentist who stuck them with a huge bill they just had to pay after services they didn’t think they consented to. I have to pick a primary dentist for Medi-Cal and everybody on their list has some kind of review somewhere that says something similar.

Let me step back for a moment though and commend the Medi-Cal people for realizing that maintaining good health has to include regular dental appointments. Why dental care is in another category, separate from general health care, remains a mystery to me. You get enrolled in dental services automatically when you get Medi-Cal, but it’s still a separate set of paperwork, a separate care plan to choose, etc.

But all the dentists that accept Medi-Cal are these scheisty guys!
