Last year I went to local Kerrville dentist who stated that I needed 6 crowns that would cost over $7,000. I purchased dental insurance to help pay for these procedures. Dr. Mark Altgelt was a preferred provider so I made an appointment. He did take x-rays explaining the teeth in question: yes the fillings were quite old, 35-40 years old but that the teeth did not need crowns at this time. THANK YOU Dr. Altgelt for your honesty!! I highly recommend him to anyone needing a dentist.
