I debated about whether to have anesthesia. I decided to be put under but when I reached Dr. Denbrock's office I discovered that while my dental insurance said it was covered 100% the doctor's office refused to believe them.
It was a tense moment in the lobby with Anthony standing there with me. Plus, I also learned they don't honor the negotiated pricing with the insurance company (Delta Dental). The financial part seemed shady at best.
I decided to get them out without being knocked out.
It worked out fine in the end. I didn't have any complications including not getting dry socket and am back to work.
It is a reminder to me though that the medical community is shady at best. Its like a group of used car salesmen with scrubs on.
