Three dentists give three different diagnoses to the same set of x-rays. How can one dentist recommend three fillings and another say there is no decay at all? In an investigation by the Herald on Sunday, three Auckland dentists provided three different diagnoses and treatment plans for the same patient – with the same set of choppers. But the Dental Association says all three opinions are legitimate options. The first said three fillings were needed as holes and decay were present; the second said there was no decay and no treatment was necessary; and a third dentist said there was no decay but recommended a preventive seal on the teeth because they were in the first stages of softening.
