New dentist tried to scam me by claiming I need EIGHT fillings. Old dentist says none are needed after viewing same x-rays. If new one had said only 2, I would have just believed him...

    What makes you think it was a scam, and not just a dentist with different standards?

    The dentist who says I need none has been in business for over 30 years and is a well reviewed/5 star dentist. The one who says I need 8 has only been here two years or so. 8 was such an alarming number that I did some research online and I found that this scenario isn't that uncommon.

    I take care of my teeth, flossing daily. The other guy online was quoted the same extreme number out of the blue when he tried a new dentist. Ultimately I can't be 100% sure it's a scam because I can't interpret the slides, but a 0 to 8 disagreement is so big that something's not right.
