Complaint Review: Mansfield Dental Associates, PA
Mansfield Dental Associates, PA inaccurate quote, extra charges, messed up fillings Mansfield Texas
I had a really negative experience with Mansfield Dental Associates, PA. I had to have five fillings, which I scheduled several weeks in advance. I was told that after my insurance benefits, I would be responsible for $150.40. I trusted that the benefits / billing representative who provided this quote was giving accurate information and actually checking coverage with my insurance company, MetLife Dental. I paid the $150.40 in good faith, only to receive a bill for $146.00 a couple of weeks later. I was told the reason that I was billed was because the insurance company does not cover resin fillings for molars. I should have been given that information in the first place, before scheduling the procedure.
The dental office should have followed up with the insurance company and told me in advance if I would be subject to any further charges. I was never told this might be an issue, nor was I even asked if I would prefer resin or amalgam fillings. When I disputed the charges with the dental office, I was told that Dr. Seth Harris said I could come back and have each of my fillings removed and then replaced with amalgam fillings, and that was the only way they would waive the extra charges. That is crazy. On top of that, when I actually had the fillings done, Dr. Harris filled them too high. I came back to have the issue fixed on multiple occasions, but I am still having trouble with some of the fillings Dr. Harris put in to this day. I have incredible sensitivity in my teeth, which wasn’t there before, also. I would not recommend this dental office to anyone!!
