With regulations like these, who needs dentists?
sounds like the kind of guy i never want the displeasure of working for. i'd tell him firmly where to shove his 24 hour case.
You don't get the pleasure of speaking directly to them. You get the nasal call from the " office manager".
if that ever happens i will refuse it. one unit is not worth this kind of hassle.
A night in the box for you then.
It's never just one job though is it? It could be a client who is worth a lot of money, but they are just hard to work for. The key is to find the right place to draw the line. In this case, this is probably it!
Make a standard of requirements from the Dr. or charge an admin fee for your time figuring out what he wants. Also specify that FCG will be the go to if there is no material specified. COD the guy if you need to.
I realize it is easy to talk tough on an online forum. End game this type of stuff isn't worth the life it takes out of you.
One lesson I learned from some gurus here past and present was to require a signed Rx and make sure all your terms are outlined on the back with their signature acknowledging the terms. Best protection you can have. As JKraver noted, the default for unspecified types of crowns/alloy/etc. should be stated on the Rx. No Rx, no processing of case until it's received.
Thanks everyone for your input. Although not many people actually answered my question. LOL. But it has been a good discussion and reminder that there are things I could do to prevent this happening to me again. !
You may have not gotten a direct answer, but the undertone seemed to me to be whatever was higher for your profit ratio. I would say FCG.
