Does anyone know a good dentist that excepts the UHC Villages insurance?

As far as I know none, could be wrong though. I went To Aspen, and ladyLake Smiles, both mis diagnosed my obsessed tooth, wanted to remove the tooth, I went to UF School of dentistry, they got it right!

So suggest someone for the OP. We don't have the same bone to pick as you did so it's all individual I'd think. Years ago I had LOTS of mouth/teeth issues and dreaded the dentist. NOW not so much as I've gotten a "handle" on the care etc. from that past treatment I received.

If you have UHC your provider list should give you the selections you are looking for. You could also stop into one of the Medicare Stores in any of the squares and they can also direct you to provider. My advice...the fact that they accept your insurance doesn't make them a great dentist.
No one believes the truth when the lie is more interesting

good luck-I went to a practice on United Health Care list-I was supposed to be charged $0 for visit,$0 for x-rays and get a free cleaning-They charged me $10 for visit and said the $0 co-pay was at their discretion,took more x-rays than supposed to without telling me and charged for those.As for the free cleaning they told me they'd do that on next visit when I come back for the deep cleaning for $400.I never went back.This was at the place on 441 near the the Comcast office.

This is dangerous territory. Unfortunately, there are medical health providers of all kinds here in TV that want to take advantage of an aging population and uninformed and/or sick people. There are also excellent doctors/dentists. Use an abundance of caution when choosing providers. Be very thorough with your investigations and choices. When in doubt, always get a second opinion. Again, I caution, do your homework.

I also went to the dentist near the comcast. I was charge $38.00 dollars. $10.00 for observation whatever that means. $28.00 for vertical bite wings that they said is not covered. I was told I had periodontal work needed and that would be $1,341.00. I had this work done about 3 years ago and regular cleanings. Plus they said lots of cavities and of course like all dentist like to do the crowns, etc. I never asked estimate for that work. When I asked about discount for the periodontal work they said there is no discount. The united health care medical advantage plan only covers xrays and cleaning twice a year. No discount fee for anything else. Full price. Call the united health care dental and you will find this out. I went an brought a dental plan from dental I chose Cigna dental and am going back to my dentist in Bushnell. I trust them. Its a bit of a ride but it gets me out of my bubble. I saved over $1,000.00 on my 2 bridges when I had the dental plan. There are several dentists I can go to in the villages with the Cigna plan but I am going back to my dentist in bushnell.

Good luck, seem the Dentist in Florida are the "used car salesman of dentistry". Working my way through two so far. Was disgusted with the last one. First the tech done pocket checks, then, the dentist done pocket check, then the cleaning person didn't agree with the Dentist done another pocket check. Called the dentist in said hers was correct Cause SHE WAS Pushing Into the BONE!

My mouth was never as sore from all the poking not the cleaning. Then, wanted to replace one tooth had no cavity just small amount bone lost around the root for 7 grand. One TOOTH. I said that's not going to happen and walked out. My mouth was sore for month after that. I guess they figured the seen $$ if I was gullible eventually replace the 27 I got left for 189,000. with the new implant scheme.

If you find honest good one that don't try to release you of your life savings Let us know.
