Bone loss vs no bone loss

One dentist - 30s, community clinic takes my insurance - told me she sees signs of bone loss and lots of problems, all of which use up insurance my insurance before necessary crown after emergency root canal, two teeth that broke during covid, one needs filling.

Another dentist - 60s, practice 40 years, private practice, does not take my insurance - says I don't have bone loss and my mouth looks pretty healthy with a few things which are obvious.

They were looking at same set of X-rays, same mouth right?!?!?! I  am wondering if i should find a third dentist, pretend I haven’t seen the others except one for the obvious root canal, see what this dentist says (solo practice, takes my insurance, decades in this community)
