Took daughter to see this doctor for a cleaning. Doctor said she had 8 teeth decaying and would need to get them worked on, place composite fillings, then put sealants on all of them. He said if untreated, within a year, she would need crowns put in. Furthermore, he wanted to have her do a "conscious sedation" procedure for the pain. Later I found out from another patient that parents aren't allowed in the room once your child drinks the sedation, and that they strap you child down, arms and legs, so they can't move. My daughter's age is 3. When probing for more info, his staff pulled out a metal crown and said, "this is what she'll need if untreated." Called and asked for the x-rays to go get a second opinion, staff said they would send it. Never received it. Had another local dentist treat her. The 2nd dentist worked on three teeth that had cavities forming, and put composite fillings, and that was it. She didn't need any anesthetics at all, and said her teeth were in great shape.

had a very bad toothache tried to call the dentists office before they opened to try to tell them that i was in severe pain that was due to previous work that was done,but instead of caring about me and the pain that i was in the receptionist was rude and was giving me a lecture about their schedule and that i had messed it up and from now on to call in ahead of time but they were closed on sunday so how was i supposed to call and give them advance notice that i was coming in pluis they estimate the cost of the treatment that they will be performing and then make you pay the estimated amount upfront before the innsuranec pays.it seems to me that if their phone number is 985-CARE they should think about the CARE part of the phone number in dealing with their patients
