Western Dental / fraudulent charges

1 United States Review updated:
Contact information:

Western Dental does not inform you about the need to join their dental plan until after you have been seen. The fees they charge are sometimes double what is a industry standard. If you pay the extra $99.00 you are then charged a responsible fee, if you chose not to you are held liable for the higher fees. Even with insurance, you still are held liable for the higher fees. Had I been told this, I would not of gone in to see them. I asked several times if I was covered by my insurance and was reassured each and every time that I had 100% coverage and not to worry. After the exam, I was then told I would only be covered for 100% of their fees if I purchased their additional insurance. I feel very ripped off and am interested in a class action suit against them.

    I am also thinking about suing western dental (for other reasons). Either way, I found out that we can also file complaints with the Dental Board of California. The number is 916-263-2300. I spoke with an operator, who will be sending me a complaint packet in the mail before the end of today. I hope this helps!
