“Same with dentists, even worse. They will sometimes rush bigger treatments like extracting a tooth over fixing it with a root canal or similiar since they will get paid better for the extraction rather than the whole treatment. Also might use less quality materials for treatments.”
You realize this statement is inherently contradictory
An extracted tooth can only be billed for the extraction.
I have several dentist friends and I can assure you that they get reimbursed more for root canals then extractions. Any one who has had these procedures knows this
Also, do you really think that doctors/dentists have two drawers, one with expensive equipment for the good patients and one with the cheap stuff?!
It doesn’t work like that. You really have no clue.
