8 Dental Horror Stories That Prove Dentist Appointments Are Evil

Unauthorized Dental Procedure

Unauthorized Dental Procedure
It is a known fact that all dental procedures need to be consented to by the patient. Well, this was not the case in France.

Dentist Jacobus Van Nierop was dubbed the “horror dentist” after word got out about his violent and unethical dental practices. One patient, Sylviane Boulesteix, said she was called to her dentist office in central-eastern France in May 2012. When she arrived, Van Nierop immediately pulled out eight of her teeth and fixed dentures on her raw gums. She sat gushing blood for three hours.

Another patient, Bernard Hugon, also had a tooth pulled by the dentist, who left pieces of flesh hanging everywhere. The other horror stories he left in his wake involved healthy teeth being removed, pieces of tools left in teeth, abscesses, recurrent infections and broken jaws.

    fortunately , there are excellent dentists who have not only allieviated pain , improving esthetics (replacing teeth, etc)
    just think of the centuries before and the horror of no teeth and /or the pain those people endured !

    My former dentist forced everybody to listen to religious music from the time you walked in the door, until you left. The last time I called his office, he wanted 9 hundred dollars to repair a broken veneer tooth. This had happened before, and he had charged me 3 hundred dollars, now he was wanting 9 hundred for the same repair. I saw an ad from another dentist for free estimates on dental work. Imagine my surprise when the new dentist wanted $250.00 dollars to repair the broken veneer tooth, while my old dentist that was so Christian and religious, lied and wanted to steal from me.
    If you’re being given a huge estimate for work, check around and never let them talk you into signing a contract. Another dentist wanted me to sign an 8 thousand dollar contract, with a 27 percent interest rate, for work I did not need. Dentists Lie, and will steal from you. Always check around first!!
