8 Dental Horror Stories That Prove Dentist Appointments Are Evil

Child Develops Brain Damage After Dental Work

Child Develops Brain Damage After Dental Work
All joking aside, even though dentist appointments might be unnerving, we will trust dentists as professionals to do their job properly. Even more so when it comes to taking our kids to the dentist.

Finley Boyle, a three-year-old girl living with her parents in Hawaii, suffered massive brain damage after a dental procedure in 2014. She died a month later in a hospice. Finley’s parents filed a lawsuit against the dentist, Lilly Geyer, who they claim administered improper medications with incorrect dosages to their daughter. This sent her into cardiac arrest, giving her permanent brain damage.

    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!!
