An Australian man Marc Pelletier, 33, has always been taking precise care for his teeth, He asked for a dentist that would have to fill £ 1200 (NZ $ 1259) worth, and became suspicious.
"It's always the type to cook twice every day, which flows every day and gets it cleaning and regular monitoring, "said Pelletier, an engineer from Waterloo Bank in Sydney.
"I received four and a half years ago for my guys, and I was spoiled about it, and I had no other issues, and suddenly I needed all this work? right. "
He made a small test. He saw a second dentist without telling him about an earlier consultation and left the "wild" difference in fish.

"It was told that this little thing had one tooth, and if I wanted to be terrible, I would get a $ 60 hunting (NZ $ 63), but it was not necessary," he said. "Everything was right."
How one of the teeth could be & # 39; Find two different medicines plans – six sheets for A $ 1200 (NZ $ 1259) compared to one wooden shipment for A $ 60 (NZ $ 63)?
Pelletier's knowledge also puts important questions about whether the increase in corporate lines, such as ASX-list 1300Smiles, has continued to go to # 39; affecting dental patients.
He had been visiting the & # 39; The first dental center in Waterloo several times earlier and after buying and reverting 1300Smiles about two years ago.
The dentist, Ghaith Al-Juboori, X-rays and said he needed six "removable removal", three to three and three and within two years.
The second dentist from Pacific Smiles, also an ASX, was also listed as X and on; He finally praised the "non-essential" hunting face, saying he would work himself.
Juboori, a dentist with 20 years of experience, said that the X-X obviously showed the need for the six volumes.
"It is a reduction in a reduction. They can not see or see it, but we should remove it," he said. "I tell my patient what is important to them, for a short and long term."
He said he helped a patient who needs another dentist; He would have worth $ 4000 (NZ $ 4198) of chrons by completing $ 700 worth (NZ $ 734).
"It does not mean that the other dentist is wrong, we had different ideas," he said.
As corporate chains buy small practices, change the business landscape, critics have questionnaires that have distribution of performance indicators and targets; focus on dentists and continue to go to & # 39; keep track of the work.
Juboori said he did not have a feeling of stress in & # 39; hitting targets and hard KPI, explaining: "I care about my patient's health, what's good for them, not money, almost a few of them".
Daryl Holmes, the leader of 1300Smiles, said that he had the facilities he had but was self-employed dentists and his business model – 40-60 were divided into profits, 60 per cent going to the business – business level.
"If there is any pressure, it's a normal weight, and every dentist in the same situation can make their own decisions," he said.
He said that pre-x was "ingenious and depressing" and dentists reached different conclusions.
"Put someone to five dentists and you will get five different ideas," he said. "There is a greater crime at somebody's risk."
The NSW Australian Astrological Society (ADA NSW) would not comment on the Pelletier story but patients who are ill-treated. An uncertain feeling about a handling plan that is proposed to & # 39; ask if they need them to go away, what happens if there is a delay, and for a cost breakdown.
"If patients are still unsure, and maybe they would like to ask for an additional comment from an ADA advisor that is proposed by a friend, friend or co-worker," said spokesman.
"They can also request their x-rays and test exams, to ask for a second opinion."
