I was wondering if anyone knew anything about this man. As a child I went to Dr. Lewis O'neal but, I assume he has since retired. However this man is located in the same building as Dr. O'neal was just wondering if anyone knew anything about him? I am scheduling my daughters first dental visit. She has Arkids.

If this man is Lester Barrett, I took my child to him 25 years ago, and I was pleased with him and his work.

Dr. O'Neal recently passed away and I have never cared for Dr. Barrett. There are plenty of dentist around that accept AR Kids. Check around.

In the past there have been pages and pages of horror stories about L.B. From personal experience, another choice would be imperative.

If you are willing to sign consent form giving him permission to tie down your children if they become scared or unruly, then go ahead and schedule an appointment.

You should try Dr. Oliver. He has done all the work on my son. He uses sedation if they are nervous.

Please don't take your child there because I went there when I was a child 16 years ago and I can still remember him and his staff holding me down I was terrified. They were trying to put the gas mask on me and I wouldn't let them, I had never had gas before an was scared. Not to mention they didn't even get consent from my mother to use gas. My mom said she was skeptical when they wouldn't let her go back. We never went back to him, and every other doctor I went to I made sure my mom went with me because I was so scared it may happen again. I'm grown now and I don't let my kids go to that dentist. I hope you don't decide on him.

I expereinced this as a child. He had 3 nurses hold my legs down and they put something around my feet. I was only 5 years old. My mom was never allowed to go back in the back with me either.

I took my child to this dentist ONE time. It was too horrible for words. In retrospect, I should have sought out what dental association or dental board that I should have reported him to. I would NEVER take a child to this dentist EVER again! PLEASE, DO NOT take your children to this dentist!

If all the people that he did this to would report him, he might lose his license.

I wish all of the victims could form a group an meet somewhere to really see in person all the victims almost like a SUPPORT group and then go from there as far as signing reports,etc. But it would have to be advertised by this forum widely since some people say KAIT won"t air anything it would have to go by mouth, don't know if the Jonesboro Sun would advertise or not.

Don't be so naive. Yes we did report it. Many of us did. Just like everything else, we didn't have connections. No clout. Politics are always involved.

I and many of my childhood friends went to him as children. He always had our parents come into his office after our visits and made them think he was wonderful all the while torturing us. He refused to let me get once during a simple cleanind and I went to the bathroom in my pants then he yelled about the mess I made. I personally saw him hold kids down and lock them in closets. All of my frieds have similar stories and our parents apologize repeatedly for not believeing us when we were young. They now realize there is no way so many of us could make up such horrible and similar stories. Hopefully this man has changed but I wouldn't chance it with my kids

Dr. Barrett tortured me and my brother. He locked me in the x-ray room and would poke me hard in the chest every time I bit down on him (not like I was doing it on purpose! I was 5!). I heard years later he was bi-polar or something. But I cannot believe he is still spreading his evil towards unsuspecting children!
