Here is my dilemma: a recent visit to a dentist ended up with a recommendation of $8000 of work b/c my mercury fillings and tooth grinding have apparently caused cracks in my molars.

I am always skeptical of any medical person who does not give any more natural, less invasive (and less expensive!) options in addition to the standard answer.

I'm wondering if anyone on this forum has experienced major dental challenges that could have potentially been expensive, but found a dentist who readily recommended more natural, cheaper methods of working on the problems. If so, what were your problems, how did you dentist help you and who is it?

Thanks. :)

Howard Garrett uses and recommends Dr. Alan Sprinkle in Arlington. He's on Randall Mill Road, up near CATS.

I called one time to find out about costs - they, at that time, helped you file your dental insurance but they didn't bill insurance companies directly. I don't know how their costs compare to other dentists, but you should definitely check with their office regarding the procedures you have in mind and sit down with someone it the office to discuss the costs.

If you're in Fort Worth, my dentist has many similar practices to Dr. Sprinkle (and he files insurance). Dr. Tim Oakes is in SW Fort Worth, and I was directed there when my own dentist at the time was injured in an accident and had to give up her practice. She interviewed a lot of area dentists and decided to pass her patients over to Dr. Oaks. I've been very happy with the work they do there. He's very conscious of environmental conflicts that traditional dentistry can present.

Dr. Sprinkle is an advertiser at DirtDoctor, so you can probably find a link to his information if you poke around the web site. Good luck with all of that dental work.
