Why would a dentist recommend $11K of dental work on an 82 year old?
Took my mother to the dentist for a cleaning and he came back with an estimate to remove and replace all the fillings and work on just about every tooth left in her head. She suffers from some dementia and insisted that I take her to the bank to withdraw $11k from her money market account to immediately pay for his estimate of what he wants to do. Is this dentist looking out for my mothers best interests or trying to line his pockets before she dies?
