Good vs. Evil Dentist
(on major review site)
Allison T.'s Review
I can only rate this dental office as a first experience as I didn't have any work done by Dr. EvilDentist. I phoned the office for an appointment because I had a terrible toothache and am new to the EvilDentistCity and did not know any of the dentists. They saw me right away which was great. After the assistant did x-rays the dentist came in to discuss a diagnosis. He told me I needed a root canal and this would have to be done by a specialist, Dr. RootCanalSpecialist. After the root canal was done, then I'd follow up with EvilDentist for a temporary crown and ultimately a permanent crown. He also told me I had 6 cavities!!!!! The total for Dr. EvilDentist's services, (not including the root canal) would be $3,000.00!!!!
So I went home and phoned Dr. RootCanalSpecialst's office and left a voicemail that I was referred by Dr. EvilDentist and needed a root canal right away since I was in terrible pain. That was mid morning Monday and I did not get a call back till Friday afternoon!!! That's after calling every day leaving the same message! I don't understand how Dr. EvilDentist can refer patients to someone who takes so long to return calls.
In the meantime I got an appointment with a dentist in GoodDentistCity that Tuesday, the day after my appointment with Dr. EvilDentist. Dr. GoodDentist was able to do the root canal himselfno need for a specialist or a crown! Dr. GoodDentist also told me that I had only 3 cavities, and not 6!!! After only two weeks ALL of my dental work is finished and I could not be happier! And I only paid $1800.00 INCLUDING the root canal!!! What a difference next to the $3000.00 Dr. EvilDentist wanted me to pay, EXCLUDING the root canal. Also, I asked Dr. EvilDentist's office to send over my x-rays to Dr. GoodDentist. It took them 3 days!! Once Dr. GoodDentist got them, he said they were badly done which led me to have them done again. Luckily there was no charge! I have a difficult time trusting dentists and am glad I got a second opinion. It not only saved me money, it also saved me from getting dental work I did not need!!!
