Coast Dental Deep Cleaning for EVERYONE! Internet
*UPDATE Employee: Coast follows the guidelines established by the American Academy of Periodontology
This company has a long history of requiring a "Deep Cleaning". My wife recently went there for an exam and cleaning and came home with a written estimate for $6000.00 worth of work which included a $100.00 toothbrush!
When she called back 2 days later and explained she couldn't afford all this work and just wanted the cleaning provided by our insurance company she was told that now that the dentist had examined her she had to have the $6000.00 worth of work 1st.
And oh don't forget that $100.00 toothbrush.
Later that night while discussing this we realized we had been to the Coast Dental in Brandon Florida years earlier. Apparently they figured by moving their location they could avoid their bad reputation.
We remembered that this deep cleaning scam had been played out then as well. We remembered every single person coming in and out of that office that day also needed a deep cleaning. There were also a lot of angry customers commenting on this fact and one had even turned to those of us in the waiting room to expect this after our exams.
Sure enough we came out with the same prognosis.
Since my insurance provider cannot get me anyone closer then an hour and a half away as Coast is "it" here in Hillsborough County Fl. my next move is a request by my insurance carrier and the State of Florida Insurance Commisioners office to conduct an investigation as I see that this practice, from the looks of it here on the web is a concern nation wide.
I would advise all of you having the same problem to join in doing the same.
