...up to a laughably small max amount per year, typically $1000 per person.

Another dental scam: I once moved states and Delta Dental (new state) made me wait a year before covering fillings, even though I had Delta Dental (old state) for years before that.

3d scanning and then immedietely "printing" a crown on the spot is pretty sweet, not any cheaper though. Good luck getting an old to do this.

OTOH our last dentist retired and sold his customer db to some new, young, face-eater looking guy - no thanks. Still probably better than big chains like Comfort Dental though.

Cavities start in the enamel which has no nerves - not having any pain yet is not proof you didn't have cavities. You can feel them being a little sticky when they jam the pointy thing into them.

I too had a "don't go to the dentist until it hurts" plan at one point, but that was a very bad idea. They don't hurt until they get down into the nerve and you need a root canal.

Some specific types do get cleared but if your config is horrible (remote admin or telnet open to the public, out of date firmware, etc) you'll just get re-infected

I think there was a thread here a loong time ago by someone who was involved in that cult/scam org that drives teenagers around in vans and make them go door-to-door selling books.

Sounds familiar to anyone?
