Concerns regarding NH dentist
« on: May 13, 2016, 11:38:57 am »

By way of addressing a market concern without using is a Heinlein-style public notice. I have some concerns regarding a New Hampshire dentist....Dr. Nicholas C. Rizos.

These concerns have to do with his diagnoses and recommendations for remedies.  After receiving treatment at his office my feeling was that some of the problems he claimed I had, and some of the remedies he proposed, sounded overly severe and expensive; I was skeptical enough to delay some of the procedures recommended.  I got a second opinion from a hyginist at a different office - which was that my teeth/gums were in decent shape and needed little by way of treatment.  A third opinion from a dentist at a third office...essentially seemed to confirm this.  Finally, that was around 2011 and and now five years later the final apparent confirmation is that I still have no known dental problems of any major significance.  I've had cleanings about every eight months or so during that time and maybe one cavity filled. Now my teeth are in such good shape (despite ignoring about half of the Rizos recommendations) that I've been cleared to reduce my dental visits to once a year.  I've been meaning to post this for a while but part of the delay was a matter of wanting to be able to look back on the Rizos claims in hindsight. 

So...I would urge getting a second opinion if you receive or received a diagnosis from Rizos - or any dentist - which seems overly expensive to treat.
