Why can't we sit up in the dentist chair?

Because everything is done in favor of the dentist. All the patient does is chock and pay the bill. The dentist gets rich in comfort while the patient pays the bill and suffers. If you lie down, it is easier for the dentist to sit there, but an open mouth makes a perfect funnel into the throat so that everything dropped by the dentist, and some things are, goes into the throat. Nearly every advancement made in the dentist business has been for the benefit of the dentist. The patient pays more but gets treated worse.

Should the Dr's office bill the patient for the Provider Discount that the insurance company gets?

If the dentist is part of the insurance company's network, he or she is contracted NOT to balance bill the patient for the discount negotiated as part of the contract. The dentist can charge for the difference between the discounted rate and what the insurer pays. For example, if the usual charge for the procedure is $100 but the discounted amount is $60 and the insurer pays half; then the dentist can charge you $30. But the dentist should NOT be charging you the $30 PLUS the $40 discounted amount. If this happens you should contact your insurance company as the dentist may be in violation of his or her contract.
