Why do I get charged for an exam?

Personally, I’d like to give one fee… that’s it, “here’s the visit, here’s the fee”. But, the insurance companies don’t let us do this, so this is why a separate exam fee is charged. While the hygienist is cleaning your teeth, she is examining every surface for damage or change. She is observing every square millimeter of soft tissue also. When you think about it, the exam actually lasts for forty minutes, not just the five when the doctor comes in.
