Don't be deceived by Dr. Ruof and thrown off by her beautiful office and charismatic ways. Do not make the same mistake that I did and go to Park 56 Dental.
I was 24. flossed regularly, had steady dental follow up, and took pretty good care of my teeth. I was shocked when I found out that I had TWELVE cavities, but since this was my first time going to a dentist that wasnt my childhood dentist, I had no reason to not believe my Doctor.
Dr. Ruof began drilling but NEVER TOLD ME HOW MUCH EVERYTHING WOULD COST.. roughly an entire semester of university tuition. You would think after a conversation about how I spent the last year volunteering with refugees that I may not be able to swing the bill, but I digress. With half the work done, multiple temporary on-lays drilled and 2 cavities filled, I went for a second opinion.
Dentist # 2 is a friend of the family and a part time professor at the NYU school of Dentistry. He had to fix one cavity that I actually had (she didnt fill it completely) He told me that all of the inlays and onlays were purely cosmetic and unnecessary and because I grind my teeth that she should not be so drill happy.
I do not care to cosmetically fix the back of my molar. No one can see it.
Since Dr. Ruof, I have paid thousands of dollars to fix the damage of the on-lays that I did not need to begin with. I was in extreme pain for months after the various procedures and almost 2 years later am still dealing with the repercussions of her overeager desire to drill out all of my teeth.
