That's a very difficult question to answer because the Washington State Dental Association is not allowed to gather fee information (it's a violation of anti-trust rules). We recommend that the patient and the dentist discuss fees openly and candidly before procedures are performed. That's always a good preventive measure. The only way to compare fees is to call another dentist and find out what the fee is for a similar procedure. But before you do this, be sure to call your dentist's office and discuss the fee you are concerned about. There may have been a billing error or misunderstanding.
