The database used here carries over 55,000 records covering over 200 dental procedures from the top metros in the US. Dental fee data is from surveys done among dentists and then supplemented from other sources like insurance data. It is then further checked and adjusted via the consumer products index (CPI) and other similar economic reporting sources.
Most dentists provide a treatment (or will if asked) for any major procedure. All of them have various fee schedules (which can vary depending upon a particular insurance or discount plan, or if you are paying directly with none of these options), either of which will give you an idea of what their pricing is. Although most practices are reluctant to quote prices, over the phone for a general term (For instance, asking, "How much does a crown cost?"), if you give them the exact procedure code and listed in the table below and then either give them your insurance or discount plan, or (if you have none) ask for their standard or "full" fee. This may be a more accurate and convenient way of comparing fees.
