12/31/10 will be a New Year's Eve I will never forget. I got a call a day before to go to a different dentist to have the procedure done.
I didn't mind. I reported at 8 am to have my teeth pulled for a full upper and lower denture. I have never met this dentist. He wanted to poke at my teeth, don't know why.
Then he said the most *** thing. He wanted to ask me if I wanted a partial on the lower. No you ***. I don't want it, the dentures have already been made and if I wanted it then it would have already been discussed.
He numbed me and left my room for about a half an hour or more, didn't say anything, I suppose to see other patients. When he came back, guess what, I was not numb anymore. Shocking. He then had to *** me again.
Let me just say I was in that office for 3 hours. He started to take some teeth out. A lot of times I asked him to stop because the pain was so bad. He said it was just pressure.
I have had teeth pulled before and I know the difference between pressure and pain. He finally got done with the upper teeth and left again for about 1/2 hour not saying anything to see other patients. Finally the lower teeth. By then I was in so much pain I needed pain meds now.
He started pulling teeth again and I told him to stop and he wouldn't. He said I was numb. I know if I was numb or not and to be honest I was in so much pain my whole mouth hurt. Several times during the procedure he asked the assistant was "he" ok.
First of all I am a woman and he didn't even call me by my name and he called me a man. He asked that because I was crying. When we were all done he said I was stressed out. No doctor I was in pain.
Well I had the finally word because when I went out to the lobby, which was filled with people, I was crying and they stuck some gauge in my mouth which was filled with blood. What a good picture to show prospective patients in the lobby.
