Almost every element of the experience with Dr. Howatt was hugely disappointing. The service was mediocre at best: the crown she fixed broke in half in less than two months. But worst of all is the fact that Dr. Howatt has major attitude. I had to remind her that I was a patient, a paying client and I disliked the treatment I received. Her reply on this was to direct me to follow her, so her secretary could make a new appointment for me. Eventually she redid the crown, without properly explaining to me how the new one would look. Every time I'd ask a question, she'd give me a raised eyebrow look. Eventually, the new crown came out looking very different -- a different shade and shorter than the rest of my teeth.
I am very unhappy with the result: $1,400, plenty of aggravation and hours of discomfort later, I'm left with a discolored shorter front tooth. ""The advanced dentistry you expect"" and ""Care and attention you deserve"" on her card seem like a bitter joke. But I'd rather stay like this, than see this person ever again.
