So I was to have tooth 32 and 17 extracted. When I got there I was told my insurance had only approved 32, The assistant told me I'd have to try and call my insurance and gave me a number on the approval latter to dial, I was on hold when she came back in and said have you gotten ahold of them yet, I said no, she said they were ready. I said well then let's pull 32. So I went through the procedure, got a date of November 3 for tooth 17 (with approval pending I guess), got my scripts, and went to CVS to fill them there I called the insurance, I was told that Gentle Dental should have done a consult and called them to get approval as the oral surgeon had not seen me before this appointment. That 17 WAS approved pending the consult. So now I have to come back in and PAY again for the nitrous or to be knocked out to remove 17. I find this annoying, I am wondering why it seems that one thing gets done and then another appointment is made to do something that could have been handled in the same appointment, is this so more funds need to be paid?

My experience at Gentle Dental was great!!! The staff was awesome! Martha, Melissa, and Jeanie helped with my appointment, along with my kids appointments, they were so nice and did an outstanding job!!! Also Matt, and Erika, and Christina did a great job as well, getting us checked in and explaining my insurance benefits. Keep up the great work!! Dr. Yvetta Jenko is the best dentist! She's so nice and gentle, and we will not see anyone. Thanks Dr. Jenko!
