ATTENTION! This dentist tries to make fast money with new and unexperienced patients. We are new in the country and our son needed a professional cleaning before his brace could be fixed. The cleaning was done in Dr. Mohl's practice but he did not inform us about the cost of this treatment ('professional cleaning is fully covered by insurance'). Getting the statement from our insurance company we noticed that Dr. Mohl submitted \$ 1,415.00 (!!!) for this one cleaning including sealing of 8 teeth (\$ 100.00 per tooth). On a personal complaint that he should have told us how expensive the treatment was, to give us a chance to decide what to do and what not to do he just replied that he does understand us but that it was not his problem and that the work has been done. We should have asked for the price '.. In the end he confirmed that he wanted to wait how much the insurance will pay him and then he would think about what to do and contact us. He got paid \$ 1,050,00 by the insurance and ' of course ' never contacted us again !!! With this cleaning Dr. Mohl spent more than 2/3 of the insurance money which is available per person in one year. Therefore, we had to pay most part of an an oral surgery (which was even a little bit cheaper than the cleaning!) which had to be done urgently, from our pocket.
