Oh dear

September 24th, 2007 at 10:42 pm

Went to th dentist today for a second opinion and of course I was right my dentist screwed up my tooth. Firts the crown was not fully on and the cement that was used was getting into my tooth. $200 later and I am PO'd. Now it is going to cost me another $850 with the new dentist to repair Frown he did suggest that I go back to her and her to correct it but I have been there twice and the problem as not been fixed so I'd rather pay the money that I really don't have and get it taken care of. I did however charge today's service but I am taking the money from my EF to pay it off tomorrow Frown
On a good note, I finished my class project, I have no idea if it was done right or not at this point I don't care but we will see. I also added $25 to my challenge brining my new total to $4238.35
In regards to my car I got a ton of calls so hopefully it will sell by tomorrow

    Oh, I am so sorry! I wonder if you can get some back from the dentist who didn't do a good job? (Wishful thinking, I know, but just wondering.....)

    I spent so much $$ on detal work, too. So, I feel your pain.

    I'm so sorry that you are having such a hard time with the dentist. I would hold her to fixing your tooth correctly and it should not cost you any extra. If she is not willing to fix it for what she had said then I would let her know that you got a second opinion and that you would like a refund for not fixing the original problem so that you may go to the other dentist so they may fix it. If that doesn't work, insist on getting your xrays and copies of your chart and let them know you will be seeking legal assistance.

    I had the same thing happen to me - it's not fun! Frown So sorry to hear that. I had no problem at all getting the original dentist to give me back my money and hand me a check to send back to my insurance company. I really hope that your problems are minor and it didn't throw off your jaw at all. I was in constant paid for six weeks and that tooth wasn't completely fixed for another six years.
    I go to a dental school now as I will never trust another dentist that has been practicing for a while. The students are eager to learn and have to follow such strict procedures in order to graduate. That and it sure is nice to just laugh when they tell you a crown is $485 - in Boston!

    I can feel for you. I have had a lot of dental work done on my mouth and it is costly, not to mention time consuming and who really wants to be in a dentist chair getting their teeth fixed. I would confront the old dentist about a refund and have the new dentist fix it; and then make a complaint to the BBB, if the old dentist doesn't pay up.

    We too have been through the dental nightmare! Sorry it is taking so long to fix!
    Hope the car sells.

    yeah i think you should go back to the first dentist and demand some kin of refund. even if it isnt the whole amount, any little bit helps. threatening with legal advice helps Smile

    I will tell you! I just have spent $3,000.00 on X-rays and 2 very bad looking crowns, that my dentist pressured me to get and I feel like an IDIOT! Do not trust your dentist!!!!!! Get a lot of opinions, before you do any of the work! My crowns way off of my original color, one is whiter and another bright white! This is a real freak show! I want my money back, but have no idea how to get it!
