Reviews for Harrisburg Prosthodontists
for his own financial benefit rather than to benefit the patient.
In fact my first crown, in 2010, came about because I had bitten down on an olive pit that was not supposed to be there - shattered a tooth. He and I had discussed my upcoming need for a few crowns over the years, but he never put a 'hard sell' on me. And his response to the shattered tooth was that he had been expecting something like that to happen given the size of the filling in that tooth and the resulting weakness of the tooth itself. He wasn't quite gleeful that time had proven him right. (He's really a very nice person with a great sense of humor.) Over the years, he had simply accepted my reluctance to have the crowns done, never pushing me on that, but waiting until I became convinced the work needed to be done. And the olive pit convinced me. Since then, he's done 3 more crowns for me; We're scheduling these to maximize insurance payments for the work - only 50% of the cost up to a certain limit each year, with my retirement and the end of that dental insurance coming up quick. There's 1 more crown to go. During the last series of appointments, he actually revised DOWNWARDS his estimate of the number of crowns I needed - 2 teeth that actually just need a renewal of fillings.
The second reason I've been his patient for so many years: he has the most incredible hands -- they seem by themselves conscious of the need to be gentle -- very different from those well-meaning people in health care who have to keep reminding themselves that what their hands are touching is not dead meat but a living human being. There really is an unconscious awareness in the hands of some people, and Dr.
But I could give you a third reason also -- this man is not someone who just does 'satisfactory' work, he’s a craftsman who clearly thrives on the satisfaction of having done an excellent piece of work."
