This is possibly a silly question. I made a change in my dental insurance so that I would get more coverage, if that is the way to put it, and I changed the dental facility that I would be receiving care for because the current dentist I am seeing, Doctor M, doesn't accept that dental plan. But just after I made this change I visited Doctor M to get my teeth cleaned, tell him where I need to forward my medical files, and I found I need to replace two fillings. So I made an appointment with him to do this. I need to tell my insurance provider that for the present I need to switch my dentist that I receive care from back to Doctor M so I can use my insurance when I see him. How do I ask this without sounding like someone who doesn't think ahead? I knew something was wrong with my teeth -- I could see and feel it -- but it wasn't until the cleaning and x-rays were over that I realized I should have found out the results of this visit, then had my problems taken care of, then switched doctors. I apologize if this does not quite make sense. If it doesn't I'll try to explain it better. Thanks for your help.View Thread
