On 8/6 my daughter Kaia Tolliver went to get a cleaning and the person that did the cleaning told my 10 year old daughter she had the “mouth of a 50 year old”. Then the hygienist brought me in the back to talk to me about her anxiety and mental health which has nothing to do with her teeth. The hygienist told me her enamel is completely worn down everywhere and there is nothing we can do. She also told me she had “the mouth of a 50 year old”.

As we left, my daughter is crying hysterically and thinking her teeth are ruined forever. So naturally we went on same day to a different dentistry to get a second opinion. The dentist that looked at her teeth said the hygienist that looked at her teeth was to busy to look at her teeth correctly or was not trained appropriately.

After exam the dentist noted the “worn down enamel” is her BABY TEETH and was very surprised hygienist made a big concern out of this. Kaia’s teeth are perfectly fine.

I want to know three things:

1) why she told my 10 year old daughter she had the “mouth of a 50 year old”

2) why she couldn’t tell those were her baby teeth and decided to alarm us over something that was not a concern

3) why she brought up her mental health and anxiety. That is not her place to talk about something like this at a dentist’s office.

I will be discussing this with the dentists and want to get to the bottom of what happened and am filing a formal complaint on this experience.

I have always had great dental care in my life but what I have received at Washington Dental Excellence for the past five years has been, by far, the best! It starts with Dr. Bezouska - a former Navy officer and dentist - who stays up on the latest in his field and is so skilled, caring and patient. You can tell that he loves being a dentist. My dental hygienist - Melissa - is knowledgeable and caring. It is an incredible team! My entire family goes to the practice now and we could not be happier with the excellence of care that we receive. We have referred a number of friends to the practice and they have been thrilled with the care.
