I saw this dentist over 7 years ago, and he was very rough with both my son and I. It was such a bad experience that we were both traumatized to go to a dentist. This is not his exact words but he said something similar that anyone who didn’t take care of their teeth deserves for their gums to be scrapped and I won’t go easy on uncared for teeth and that I am not going to give you more stuff to numb you, you haven’t taken care of your teeth. I was getting 3 cavities filled. I am just now seeing a dentist for the first time, and I can’t wait any longer as my teeth are so bad now, that I have to go. And I have a friend that now lives in Virginia that had a similar experience with this dentist but his faulty work is now costing her 2.5K in corrective dental work. So a word from the wise, use another dentist.
