This content was provided by Dr. Albers "Dental care is a complex and intricate science. Few patients fully understand the nature of this profession. Dentists do not sell fillings, veneers or crowns. They provide a service. The only real thing a dentist has to sell is his or her time, skill, and judgment and that varies considerably among practitioners. Dentistry is a demanding and rapidly changing profession that takes many years to learn and the good part of a lifetime to master."
