Dr Baba hit me in my llip and made my lip bleed. He then changed two
temporaries that were just fine to two temporaries of the worst quality..
The charge for these two inferior temporaries were $278 which I clearly
did not understand why temporaries were not being replaced with
permanent restorations . I concluded that it has to do with "quick money"
that did not have to go through the insurance company.
I have had to take off all week to try to resolve problems he has created. He
took a drill and destroyed my tooth . I only have a tiny nub.of a tooth. When
I ask him why he did this to me , he does not respond.
I went to him on three occasions, to be back where I started with two temporaries but in addition to that, my teeth have been destroyed. Of course like other
irresponsible dentist, when he has done his damage, he runs.
I am running also - straight to the dental board. I realize there is a reason he is
primarily at a school. The worst dentist ever with no integrity.
His dental assistants had to alert me to the fact that he had destroyed my
If you don't want to have to miss work trying to correct the damage he has
caused and time filing complaints and talking to lawyers. Run while you
still have your teeth !!!!!!
The worst dentist ever with no conscience as well. I have learned my
lesson. "Never relax in a dentist chair and assume he has your best
interest at heart. Contantly watch what he is doing or you too may end
up with a nub of a tooth and unneccessary root canals."
I too thought he was so caring and etc; until it was too late. He did not bother
to tell me he had drilled my entire tooth making it impossible for a temporary
to stay on.
I am even more surprised by the "mature" way he handles the situation after
he has done his damage. It is "you" that is the problem not his work. .
I do not know if he destroyed my tooth out of pure meanness or if he felt
destroying my tooth would now allow him to bill for a post and build up or
if there is a legimatel reason I only have a nub of a tooth left because
he refuse to answer the question.
I suppose the Dental Board will have to review all the records and decide.
I have also had difficulty getting my dental records which I am legally entitled
to. I am planning to send him a certified request soon. ;
Dear Mrs. EB,
I thank you very much for taking the time to post a review of my office. For the sake of accuracy and fairness I would like to attract you attention to the following facts:
1- You were referred to my office by your insurance company following a dispute with your previous dentist.
2- The temporaries you presented with to my office were old, discolored, leaking and ill-fitting. The proposed treatment plan that I presented to you, and you consented to, included the fabrication of new provisionals and your share of payment after the insurance paid her share was 278$. You forgot to mentioned that the 278$ were reimbursed to you when you presented to the office with attainable expectations on the part of you.
3- While removing the old provisionals the instruments that I was using slipped from my hand and non-intentionally scraped your lip, an incident that could happen in any dental office.
4- Following the removal of the old provisionals, removal of decay, and fabrication of the provisionals you were referred to the endodontist for evaluation of the prepared teeth, as no enough tooth structure was left to obtained adequate retention and resistance form and one of you root canal treatment was leaking. The endodontist confirmed the need for a retreat on one of your teeth and the possibility of treatment on the other.
5- concerning the dental records, you failed to mention that a copy was sent to you at no charge.
