Used to work there. He established the free service once I was going there as a patient. I wasn't informed before the service that this time there was going to be a fee, by either the Dental Hygienist, the Dentist or the secretary. After my dental cleaning I was told the Dentist no longer wants to do free cleanings and there is now a charge for today.
Not sure why you would expect the services for free. Certainly if services were provided and accepted, one can expect that you would owe payment for those services. You may want to discuss with the dentist, but not sure why you would think that he should not charge you unless there is more to the story.....
I suggest you speak with your former boss about this change in policy and advise him that you did not anticipate a fee and would like to work out a payment schedule and see what he says.
