8 Dental Horror Stories That Prove Dentist Appointments Are Evil

An All Around Awful Dentist

An All Around Awful Dentist
This guy really has no room for redemption. He seemed to be pretty rotten in all aspects of his life. The fact that he was a dentist just makes matters worse!

The list of awful things that dentist Colin Howell did seems endless. He killed his first wife and the policeman husband of his mistress. He staged both bodies together to make it look like a joint suicide. He also cheated on his second wife. And sexually abused sedated women at his dentist office.

He told all of this to his second wife in 1998, who kept it a secret for 10 years, fearing her husband would kill himself. Finally she convinced him to confess to his crimes in 2009.

Well, those were some truly awful dentist stories. Definitely worst-case scenarios, though. I mean, there are bad people who work in all professions, right? So what if you’ve never actually seen your dentist’s face because they are always wearing one of those masks for the sake of “hygiene”…

    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!!
