  • Remember that dentist?

    The one I reported? Well, I haven't heard anything back yet, but the state has been in contact with me by phone and mail.

    Today was the first day that I actually got my son back into a dentists office after the psychological BS the old dentist put him through. Telling him that the dentist he'd have to see to fill his cavities would tie him to the chair and not let his mommy in with him. My son only met the dentist and his assistant today and absolutely LOVED him! He is a pedodentist (sp..dentist for children) He can relate to them and makes them feel comfortable, not afraid and hysterical. He let my son watch cartoons, play with toys and he also got to pick out what flavor "air" he would smell at the next appointment. He got to pick from grape, strawberry, orange and bubblegum. It was a scented rubber contraption that fits on his nose with holes in it (where laughing gas will go). He knows nothing about the laughing gas YET. Just that the nice smelling purple thing on his nose is fun. LOL Then, he got to pick out a prize after the visit. NICE NICE GUY! I only wish I would have gone to him first.

    He made sure I knew that they do not use restraints and that what the other dentist said was a lie. I could tell that it was a lie. They do other routes, like laughing gas and premedication. We figured out since my child was so badly mentally abused by the previous dentist that getting him into a chair to fill his teeth will be next to impossible so he has a prescription for diazipam to be mixed with pudding or applesauce 1 hr before he goes in. If that doesn't take the edge off, he'll get the gas through his grape tube and not even know about it. I also have a prescription for tylenol with codeine for the airplane ride because the pressure might affect his tooth which MAY have to be pulled the same day they try to fix it when we get back from Florida.

    Damn that dentist, I hope he has his license revoked!

      Ok, I just gotta ask, has anyone actually tried to get your son to sit in this new dentists chair, before deciding to resort to Valium?

        The only way to get him into the office today was to have him just meet the new dentist. He's really scared after what happened with the old dentist. The bottom line is, he needs to have it done. Valium or no valium. His tooth is going to have to be pulled if he can't fix it. Is valium another "voodoo" drug? [Eek!]

          I went to this dentist that had his office manager call me later. He wanted to do $10,000 worth of work to my mouth! But, never fear, he would lend me the $10,000 at the very reasonable rate of 4% interest! (Thereby, making 2 profits off me...I considered it very unethical of him). I got smart with her and said, "That sounds great! When do I pick the money up?" She said, "What?" I said, "The $10,000! When do I pick it up?" She said, "Oh, you misunderstand...the $10,000 is the work he does on your mouth". I said, "Ohhhhhh! You mean he does $10,000 worth of work, making a handsome profit off me AND another profit with the 4% interest?" She stammered, "Welllll.....". I said, "I didn't just fall off the turnip truck. And I consider him making 2 profits off me very unethical." She said, "Well, it's just business." I sais, "NO, it's wrong, in my eyes. Good-bye". They had the nerve to call me the next month to see if I had changed my mind!!!!!
