$32,000 all trips estimated price

$18,850 trips 2 and 3 estimated price

competitive pricing

during the course of my first trip, first of three, i examined the pricing from a local competitor. the sabana neighborhood of san josé has more dental institutions per square mile than long island has bagel shops. it is competitive. if you are looking for the lowest-cost provider, mariano kriebel is not for you and i would say for you to look elsewhere. if you are, however, looking for a fair price for good work then you will find no one better than mariano kriebel and his team at kriebel dental.

i received an estimate from a competitor called prisma dental. the office at prisma dental is not more than walking distance from kriebel dental. in comparison to the white-glove, personal, and pathological attention to patient care i felt at kriebel dental, prisma dental provides a factory-style environment of dental treatment. for example, like a couples massage has two beds side-by-side, so does prisma dental place two dental chairs in the same room.

below is the pricing for prisma dental, followed by a comparison to kriebel dental.

comparison

below is the comparison between kribel dental and a competitor using the price estimates for trips 2 and 3. dentists have different paths to a successful smile. in both cases the work shown is not identical, yet they are the paths each dentist provides to get the same result for me, a carrot-chewing smile.
