If you are experiencing an emergency situation, please seek advice from an ER physician or a dentist in person as soon as their office opens. If you are unhappy with your current dentist, you can seek out another one that will better fit your needs. That's the best way to get your questions answered. It's unlikely that dentists are going to be available here, as they need a work-life balance just like anyone else. They need to unwind, relieve stress, and sleep once they are done with practice for the day and they probably do not want to go online and answer questions at that point. Most professionals don't only care about money, but certainly money is the driver behind why people work. Just like a car mechanic, they do expect money for their services and unfortunately there isn't much say over what dental insurance is going to charge. So not everything regarding money is their fault - they don't necessarily set the prices for dental work.
