Not sure about this Dossett Dental, but writing about the one on Arapaho - I AM A DENTIST, so please read closely.
So I went in to Dossett Dental to get my Groupon redeemed for an exam, xrays, and whitening. Was taken in - had xrays done, and then they hygienist came in. She said that I needed a deep cleaning. Before the dentist came to see me, the office manager, Fariba Dodgostar, came in and saw me and said that it would cost me $850. I didn't consent by signature, not even verbally, and the hygienist was about to start the deep cleaning on me when I said that I didn't want it because of the cost. This was ALL before I saw the dentist. Then the dentist came and told me I needed a filling replaced with a ""build up"" and crown. Then when I asked about the whitening I had paid for with the groupon, they said that in the groupon, it said if I needed a deep cleaning, that they couldn't do the whitening. So they basically charged me $100 for an exam and xrays - something that they offer for free anyways (http://www.dossettdental.com/)
What I failed to tell them was THAT I'M A DENTIST. Me needing a deep cleaning is an ABSOLUTE LIE. Secondly, a hygienist CAN'T diagnose that I need a deep cleaning. Texas Occupation Code 262.151 - ""the dental hygienist does not: (A) diagnose a dental disease or ailment; (B) prescribe a treatment or a regimen;"". Also Dr. Susan Koo stating that I need to have my filling replaced with a build-up and crown is over-treatment as well. And I don't need to have my ""deep cleaning done"" before I get a whitening. This is obviously just a tactic for them to get people in the door and see what idiot doesn't look into their treatment planning, and just pays them for extra, unnecessary treatment. Hell, at my office, if someone paid $900 for a not deep cleaning, I would give them a free whitening too. Needless to say I got a refund on my groupon and I am reporting them to the dental board....
