Coast Dental employs an outrageous scam on all its patients. They advertise that they take your insurance. That is why I went there. Was I wrong. The rip off is providing only procedures and products not covered in the insurance contract.
My dental insurance is United Healthcare and they have negotiated good prices for the policy holders.
Coast Dental wants the big bucks so they make it mandatory for you to have a procedure or product not covered by the insurance contract. Does this mean that the dentist is willing do anything to the patient including harming the patient to
adhere to this protcol? I think so.

 Now comes the insurance fraud. In order to get your insurance benefit they fraudulently bill the insurance
company for something that is covered but not done. Dr Perkins and there band of high pressure assistants insist that you must have the expensive non covered procedure or product or they will not treat you.
Latter I learned they what they insisted on was a bad alternative, this very hard material used in the expensive bridge biting down on a natural tooth will destroy the natural tooth.  I will have to wait at least two and half months for the bridge. They had my money on day one and are in no hurry to complete my bridge. Mean while the egg shell temporary bridge fell apart and they want another $150 to repair or replace the temporary. So here I am toothless and the mercy of these vultures. 
Bottom line Coast Dental is an unethical and dangerous dental scam. Stay away!

Again, take a look at your insurance card; it should say which one you have.

Answer Is Coast Dental is a PPO.

AUTHOR: ethics4uto - (United States of America)

Coast Dental is a PPO for purposes of United Health Care contact. This means the individual Dentists employed by Coast Dental sign onto the contract. The dentist have a choice whether or not to work for Coast Dental. They understand they have to adhere to these rigid protocols that circumvent the insurance contract and increase profits for themselves and

the corporation. Bottom line the consumer is ripped off.
