8 Dental Horror Stories That Prove Dentist Appointments Are Evil

Teeth Pulling Leads to Death

Teeth Pulling Leads to Death
Getting an extraction of one tooth is scary. But 20 teeth?

In 2015, Judith Gan went to her dentist to have 20 teeth pulled, bone grafting and implants put in. According to an assistant, the dentist Rashmi Patel ignored many signs during the procedure that Gan’s health was in danger. The low oxygen alarm went off several times and the patient even made gurgling sounds before she stopped breathing altogether. She was taken to the hospital where she later died.

Patel eventually turned himself into the police after a warrant for his arrest was put out. He was charged with criminally negligent homicide.

    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!!
