Ratings for Dr. Ron Bentham
Looking for a dentist and Dr. Bentham came up number 3 on top ten dentists in Penticton for 2018..... WOW! After reading all the reviews. I can only think they pay for their rating. I'm glad I took the time to read these comments. Especially after having a horrible experience with another money arrogant grabbing dentist in Penticton.... who also made the top ten!!
not good overpriced judgemental with an anger management problem Staff are good but there are always new ones Pushy, arrogant and does even have a Bachelor of Science I find out That gives me pause Apparently back in the old days you could do a amount of time in either college or university and go into dentistry but I had not known this. Definitely would have made a better choice if I knew that certainly. Told my husband that he had the best dental plan he had seen in years so hence the $13000.00 worth of work on my teeth that he said was guaranteed the first time around but appears not to be. Definitely would see someone else next time and go for a second opinion definitely. I have an appointment with him to discuss the outrageous billing and want this broken down into the tiniest minutae. Given my background in accounting and finance I feel quite confident I can address this situation but if I am not satisfied shall definitely take this up with a higher authority.
He has taken advantage of my good dental plan and crowned faarr more than she should have. A $$ maker. Fed up and traumatized by him splitting my lips and trying to pull out out tooth manually..... Then insisting for th e last yr I need a bridge. I had a 2nd opinion. Over crowned no doubt and my other tooth is stable. Dr. is just a $ maker... Time for him to retire!!
My wife and I visited Dr, Bentham after being referred by someone. My spidey senses went off the minute we walked into his office and it was completely dead in there. Not one person was in the waiting room. Dr. Bentham even came out and introduced himself to us. I thought, if a dentist has time to come into the waiting room, he can't be that busy which raised another flag. After my examination, he was trying to pressure me into signing an estimate sheet consenting and agreeing for him to do the work described. I refused to sign, but he still kept pressuring me saying "By signing, you're only agreeing that you understand what I am telling you". I told him I was a smart person and I can understand just fine without signing anything. Especially when It explicitly said on the estimate sheet that by signing the form, I agreed and authorized him to perform the work. He started telling me he could do the work right then and there if I had time. What kind of a dentist has that much free time that he could spend 2 hours doing the work right then? While he was in the other room examining my wife's teeth, I got talking to one of his assistants. She told me outright not to let him pressure me into doing the work as he does this to everyone and I should get a second opinion. She even wrote down the name of another dentist in town and said tell him xxxx sent you! Whaaaaattt? I was also very concerned after the exam when he told me I needed 13 fillings. I had gone to a dentist when I lived in another province less than a year prior to this visit. I had 3 fillings done there and the dentist said my mouth was in really good shape, so I couldn't understand why i needed 13 fillings. It seemed to me like he was only concerned about how much he could charge to my insurance plan. Before leaving the consultation, he had booked an appointment for us 2 weeks down the road to have the work done he said we needed. I called the next day and canceled as we did not feel comfortable with him and decided to seek another opinion. Later that day Dr. Benthm himself called me to see why we canceled and he was quite rude and even hung up on me. Stay Away!!
So disheartening to read these posts as we put so much trust in a dentist ,I was a patient for years and had 7 root canals done ...3 so far have failed ,,,endodontist basically said my roots are tiny and no dentist should have tried to clean the pupil out as they don't have proper tools or technology to get the root clean,,,,,so here I am getting them fixed out of pocket and one is so bad its an extraction and attempting an implant.of course not with Bentham ,all the money that was put out is leaving my pocket again,how does this keep happening to people!
Dr Bentham is a terrible dentist. The crowns he put on my fiance teeth broke and Fell off less than 2 months after he put them on. They were terribly don't too they made my fiance teeth look like chiclets. Also I think he overcharged us. Never going here again and I really hope no one who reads this goes there either. Please don't give this man your money. So upset
I felt very pressured to get the work done on my teeth. $12,000 later and still regret using him. Many people have commented that my four front teeth look crooked. He replaced those teeth because "they needed to be replaced". Hmmmm. I make my final payment to him today. Would never recommend or use him again. I definitely felt as most do on this forum, that he's all about the money. Sad....considering he's a Christian man.
