Honestly, if you feel that way then find someone you trust. I make it very clear what my philosophy is. I tell my patients why this tooth needs that restoration. All may not be able to follow exactly what is going on, but they should be able to understand that I'm not making up problems.
As a patient, it is YOUR job to fully understand what is being done and why. That means ask questions.
What I see often (and I hate) is people logging in after seeing a doctor and saying things like, "I don't know why he said this". You shouldn't have left the office with questions like that.
I just visited the dentist for the first time in over 10 years. They wanted to x-ray my mouth and I told them it's not necessary, as I have no issues. They were adamant and I finally gave in. And as I had already known, it wasn't necessary. The dentist and hygienist were both amazed at my awesome teeth and told me I had the mouth of a 15 year old. They were amazed at my gum health and whiteness of my teeth. I told them I'm an obsessive flosser and often rinse with peroxide after brushing 2x per day.
Old Navy has shitty styles for the past 2 years.
I agree I look funny, but I don't stink... usually.
