I once had a dentist recommend a course of gum treatment that sounded extreme to me at the time but, when I questioned whether I needed to have such an extensive (and costly) procedure done, I was told that I would have to find a new dentist if I did not. I found a new dentist. When I discovered the credential lookup service a few years later and looked up that dentist's credentials, I found that there had been disciplinary action taken for recommending unnecessary procedures. Today, looking up a provider's credentials is a routine part of pre-care exploration for me.
