Even after many years, I think of this dentist daily. Not because he's a nice man, which he appears to be, but because the work that he did continues to cause me pain and trouble.
During my first visit to him, he poked a nerve while giving an injection, causing the right half of my tongue to be numb for over 6 months. After I was foolish enough to consider this a rare mistake, and took his advice to have a crown replaced, he exerted such pressure on the tooth while grinding it down that I was in bed for 2 days afterwards. I have had extensive dental work in the past... I'm used to getting crowns, and never have I had it even remotely that bad. I was not able to eat on that side without pain for over a year and a half. Then infection set in on that same tooth, creating an abscess, requiring a root canal and a new crown, as his was set poorly.
Besides the years of trouble each time I ate something, it is costing me nearly $2,000 to fix what he was paid over $1,000 to do.
Thus, I offer this posting as an act of public service, and a little revenge, maybe, since he does not return calls to discuss a refund for his work that caused so much trouble, pain, and expense. I fully understand doctors being squeamish around such matters, but I haven't even pursued that avenue. When I asked him to discuss the tooth in question with my current dentist and then call me back to take up the matter, he promised to do so right away. But after several weeks he has not called my dentist, and does not return calls from me to his office.
I was overly trusting because of his ""natural"" dentistry advertising. Well, be warned: This ain't natural . . .
Cons: Poked nerves and a poorly installed crown: Years of pain.
