Worst dental experience 7/17/2015

Was seen for wisdom teeth extraction for 4 impacted teeth. During my consultation I was told the procedure would not be a problem and I would be given gas to make me comfortable. I was also prescribed Valuum to take prior to the procedure. After undergoing a 3 hour procedure of only receiving multiple novocaine shots, as though I was having a cavity filled, I was told that only one tooth was extracted and they had to stop because he "was running out of time" and had other appointments. I experienced intense pain throughout the entire procedure, and a large amount of bleeding. When I called the office the following day to tell them about the bleeding, I was told they would prescribe me Percocet...which was after I was already prescribed Lortab. There was no follow up care from Mr. Higgins or his staff. When I went in 5 days later to have my stitch removed, I was told my gums were extremely inflamed and infected. I was given a prescription for amoxicillin that was signed by Mr. Higgins; however, I never actually saw him during that visit. He showed no care for what I underwent during my procedure or that my gums were extremely infected due to the unprofessional procedure he performed. It is now 6 days after my one tooth was poorly extracted and I can still not eat solid foods or fully open my mouth. I still have swelling and have to undergo a second procedure to have the other 3 teeth removed, definitely not in Mr. Higgins office. What I was told by Mr. Higgins was that wisdom teeth extraction is a very common, fairly easy procedure, has now turned into a 2-3 weeks process of two surgeries, multiple prescriptions and an infected mouth. I would not recommend this facility to anyone...unless you're looking for a pill mill, he's your guy. more
