    Is it standard procedure for dentists to charge say $65 to look at your teeth after they have been cleaned by his hygienist?

    It never used to be that way-- but it may have become standard practice-- that is what I have been led to believe.

    Hi.

    This sounds like a basic consultation fee to me. Any time a dentist looks at a tooth, especially if it's causing problems, there's often a charge like this.
