Complaints like this are why I hate being a dentist. You can never do anything right in the patients mind (perception).
We are expected to be God and somehow do it on peanuts for a salary.
If you know of anyone considering going into dentistry, tell them to run from it as fast as they can....it is a miserable profession with no rewards.
Well said. It is now the most horrible profession on the planet as far as I'm concerned. The compensation for what we have to put up with is just not acceptable. Looking for something else to do!!!

Strongly recommend you do not go to this place! The staff is extremely rude. They Lie. They do everything to steal your money. If they injure you they wont fix the problem. They will sexually harrass you! They will try to intimidate you. If you complain they will force you out of the facility. The exam rooms are NOT CLEAN. TOOLS are not sterile! They take way too many x-rays and refuse to look in your mouth and tell you THAT U ARE FINE! They create more health problems! Now after all that neglect I got to go have all my teeth pulled!

Come now Elmer, this disgruntled little bitch is probably
in quite a bit of pain.... You know Bennville and the surrounding
suburbs, they visit the dentist once every 15 years because that
one particular tooth that is bothering them, can't be self extracted
with a pair of needle nose pliers.... I'm guessing the dentist
had just eaten lunch and was afraid of hurling his tuna salad if
he caught a wiff of that breath and sight of all that black surrounded with ozzing puss.....

This practice has been bought out my a husband and wife dentist team. Very nice and professional.
Anything quoted prior to 2001 is from the previous dentist and it sounds like he and his staff were complete incompetents. These new owners are the best and do not hesitate to go to either one of them.

I meant 2010. That's when the practice changed ownership!

Stay away from Shaftsbury Dental if the same staff is still there. Those women are far worse than Dr. Moscowitz was. No wonder the Carmacks, who allegedly bought the practice, have relocated their practice down to Bennington. So many of us who take care of our teeth and had an unbelievably bad experience with Moscowitz and those greedy, horrid women at the front desk, won't go back on location. I was a patient of Dr. Coleman at that location for 20 years until the unfortunate breakup of that practice and it was natural to go back there when no other dentists in the Bennington area were accepting new patients. Boy, was I wrong! Those money-grubbing women were nasty and demanded illegal post-dated checks. It was ONE BAD SCENE. However, every indication is that the Carmacks are excellent.
