AWFUl experience. I am incredibly understanding and I know some things are beyond your control, but all I wanted after I was looked at was a price for the cleaning. Instead, I was shuffled back to the waiting room for another 45 minutes. Yes, I did ask to be checked for cavaties too but by the time I was brought back, waited in the chair for another half hour and was checked, it was time for them to close. I paid a 5 dollar co-pay to sit for 3 and a half hours, be told I had no cavaties. Another thing-- I have had numerous surgeries and many other problems, so when I am trying to explain my concerns over a long, possibly painful cleaning, it would be nice if someone listened instead of dismissing me. I know you are the expert, but I also know my chart only shows what has occurred in the last six months. Please listen to me, or at least show some consideration. I am already deathly afraid of the dentist due to past experiences.
I left in tears (probably seemed ridiculous to see a grown woman crying over this), and yes, I was angry...after a long day, no one should wait for three and a half hours to get nothing done. I scheduled further work, so I am hopeful it will get better.
