I came for fillings. I was there for fillings on both sides a few weeks ago. The numbing agent didn’t take effect on one side and I could feel everything, so they only did one side. I came today for the other side. The numbing gel that’s usually left in my mouth for ten minutes was swabbed for a few seconds and taken out, and I was immediately injected with numbing medicine. I have serious anxiety about needles in my mouth, nowhere else, but mouth. Maybe that’s standard practice in some circumstances but in the past I have trouble getting numb, and nothing was explained to me, so for me it was irregular and alarming. They checked after a few minutes and I could still feel, so I got more needles in my mouth. They checked again a few minutes later and I said I was mostly numb, and the dentist started work. I jumped out of my seat several times because I could feel the drill going into my tooth. She said nothing and kept going. I don’t plan on returning. Dental work is an anxiety for me and numbing medicine doesn’t work well for me. She knew that and she just went ahead and did the work while I took the pain as best I could. I thought we had more options than just let the patient deal with the extreme pain. It also seemed liked the atmosphere of the whole place was rushed. Is usually isn’t. I think the dentist had some place to be and I payed the price for her impatience. I went out of my way to schedule to be with that dentist because in the past I thought she did a great job, but after this experience I’m going to find a new clinic. Lots of options out there. Really a shame.
