What can you expect??? (If they actually answer their telephone) - You will be told you need to set up an "initial consult" first, before you can receive a "cleaning" or any other service....Then, you will most likely be told you have major dental problems which will require lots of money (of course that will not be covered under your insurance) and, ....good luck if you EVER get a routine cleaning ! My experience was not an isolated experience - my daughter was told she had multiple (over ten) cavities - another dentist told me later she had beautifully healthy teeth (no cavities)...My other two children were told they had oral problems and diagnosed with gingivitis which required "deep cleanings " of course, not covered by my insurance so they couldn't get a regular cleaning.....When I was in the office, another patient was arguing with them over being intentionally misdiagnosed and billed fraudulently....An internet search shows Spelios and associates filed a law suit in retaliation against another patient who complained to the newspaper about being misdiagnosed to collect money at a spelios and assoc office in Raleigh or Cary, NC (they have offices in GA and NC), there are also several similar complaints on the internet - see: www. insiderpages.com/b/15245952012) -This dental group should be investigated for insurance fraud - simply send someone in with healthy teeth and see what happens - For the record: Due to fear of legal retaliation from this office: I am not claiming insurance fraud, I am saying here: based on patient complaints....the office should be investigated for the possibility of insurance fraud!!!!
