Dr. Matthew T. Ertl treated me at his office for a year and a half at which point several crowns and temporary fillings (not a covered insurance procedure), followed by the permanent filling was recommend. Several times I left my 6 month cleaning with a several thousand dollar estimate on future dental work that was recommended by Dr. Ertl to have completed immediately as it could potentially pose health problems.
I finally took the estimate to another trusted, credited, dentist in Asheville NC only to be told that I had only two small fillings that were needed; no crowns. I had this treatment immediately resulting in a little over a hundred dollars out of pocket expense.
I returned to Dr. Ertl for my regular 6 month cleaning recently where he immediately told me he would transfer my dental records somewhere else. When I questioned the temporary fillings that were recommended and the price difference in the treatments, I was presented with an image on a screen that said "There will always be someone who says that they can do it cheaper..." This image is a man getting a bad tattoo in a tattoo parlor shop. At this point Dr. Ertl expressed to me that it was wrong to price check because I may not receive his level of care which is price gauging on treatments that are not needed.
In an area and time where good patients are hard to come by I would recommend going anywhere but here where you will be valued and have trust in your dentist.
