You have a lot of nerve commenting on something when you weren't even there. You really shouldn't judge what you know nothing about. Has it occurred to you that we may be speaking of different hygenists? Regardless, I WILL NOT apologize for defending my daughter against someone who had no business laying their hands on my child.

I am very familiar with this office . The staff there is extremely friendly and professional.The couple telling the lies about their kid needs some help. They have tried to slander this office name on any site they can find. The hygentist is one of the nicest and sweetest people I know. A brat kid and parents with anger management issues is a bad recipe. Your kid sounds like a difficult patient and you sound like an over protective parent. My advice to you is be ready to have many dentists and doctors, because you will not be happy with anyone!

It is amazing to me that all of you are such perfect parents that your children NEVER misbehaved in a scary or unfamiliar situation. It is also amazing to me that none of you would feel the need to protect your child when they are being handled in a manner you don't agree with. As for my husband's actions, I defend him and love him for trying to make right a situation that never should have happened to our daughter. If he was yelling, perhaps it is because he was REacting to being yelled at by the office staff and the fact that they refused to speak to him at all regarding the situation. As for him yelling in the parking lot, perhaps that is because the office staff followed him outside and was yelling at him. Funny how "WOW" didn't mention that little detail. This started out as a method for us to bring to light a situation that disturbed us regarding how our daughter was treated so that other people could have another piece of information and make their decision from there. Instead it seems to have turned in to a forum for all of you to bash our family and criticize what most of you know nothing about. I don't claim to be perfect but I will protect my children at all costs, no matter how imperfect they or we are. I have no doubt that other people have most likely had wonderful experiences at this office, however, it isn't always sunshine and roses for everyone and others have the right to know that. Just like those of you who feel the need, have the right to praise this office, I have the right to criticize it if I see fit. I feel bad for those of you who can't get past your opinions of me and my family and completely miss the whole point of this which was the poor way that my daughter was treated in MY opinion.

Meadowview family dentistry is Great!! there an awesome staff. To the family with the little girl,My children love going there. The hygentist is wonderful and they love getting there teeth cleaned. But My Children are taught to behave!!!Sounds like the couple that had the bad experience there with there child need to take her to a pedatric dentist.They strap the kid down even if they scream,parents cannot go back at all. COME ON NOW!!!!! SERIOUSLY!!! leaving polish on her teeth is not gonna harm her....BIG DEAL!!!!!!!!!!
I am sorry but that last comment was uncalled for. Pediatric dentists do not "strap" a child down and leave the parents in the waiting room to listen! I have never experienced with 5 children their pediatric dentist strapping them down. Yes they have restraints, but they are trained to deal with children making them feel comfortable and building trust, restraints are a last resort. Just because a child is upset at the dentist does not mean they are misbehaving.

Christina did you drive from Georgia or Elizabethon to come to the dentist? I am getting confused. You passed how many dentist offices from Georgia to get
there? Surely all 2000 of them did not throw your
family out! Or maybe they did!

Also this is your spelling lesson-It is HYGIENIST, not hygenist.

Meadowview Family Dentistry was a Great Experience for me. I was out of town and had a emergency that needed to be dealt with. The staff was top notch professionals and I wish that they were closer to my home. I would recommend this group to anyone that lives and works near the Meadowview, Kingsport, Eastman area.

I'm sorry but if someone grabbed my child by the head I'd probably be very upset too. That just isn't acceptable no matter who is doing it, nor for any reason. Both parties (the father and the dental practice) should take some responsibility in this matter because they are both at fault.

I'm 30 years old and going to the dentist literally makes me so nervous I get cold sweats. This is from a bad experience as a child. You can't blame a 6 year old for being scared. As a mother your job is to protect your child and when you feel like that is threatened sometimes you overreact a little but if someone grabbed my daughter like that I probably would have lost it too! I'm sure this place is professional but sounds like some of them don't have the patience it takes to work with a child. Maybe she needs to find somewhere else to work other than with children. How would she feel if this was her child someone tried to restrain? Bet she doesn't even have kids so she has no idea what it feels like when your child is scared or hurting!!!!!

I had a full set of teeth made by Dr. Frances, they never fit correctly, went back a total of 20 times sore mouth many adjustments made with no relief, she finally told me she would have to do a soft reline and wanted to charge me another $150 after I had already paid her almost $2000 for something that was never correct.....EXCUSE ME...where is the integrity of this company..most disatisfied with Dr. Frances. The staff was great very nice to deal with but the lack of doing a job right lays on the owner. I actually went to another dentist and explained my situation to them.....they actually done a soft reline even thou they didn t make the teeth...and would not allow me to pay a dime. also found out you can do a soft reline yourself for about $15. so very disapointed in the total lack of integrity on Dr. Frances part..

Went to Meadowview Family Denistry for a new set of false teeth, they had the best price....BIG MITAKE....the teeth never fit properly, was charged almost $1800. went back 20 times for adjustments, sore mouth I was finally told they wanted another $150 to do a soft relign....excuse me...why not properly fit them as you should...went to another Dentist and explained the situation...he done a soft relign and refused to let me pay even thou he did'nt make the teeth. had them about a year now only to find out they must have used the cheapest teeth possible as they are already worn flat...so the Meadowview Family Denistry and Dr. what's her name...certainly have a serious lacking of integrity...I was scammed, and i can provide evidenct to prove my side of the story....disabled person on SS ...robbed.

Christina,

As a dental hygienist, I can tell you that the biggest part of my job, in regards to children, is to make them comfortable in the dental chair. If a child is nervous, the hygienist should use the appointment time to slowly introduce them to the instruments, and interact with them in a calm, pleasant manner. If you cannot perform the actual prophylaxis that day... no problem. It's preventative treatment. They come back in six months you work with them some more.

The one thing you do not want to do. Is traumatize a child that will create a fear of the dental office that they may never get past. I have heard countless stories from adults that are afraid of the dentist because of a childhood experience with a dentist.

I also wanted you to know, Christina, that this office is in the process of showing themselves for the fools they are. They have created a contest in which children that desperately need braces, but cannot afford them write a story about they're misfortune. They've posted these stories, and pcs of the childrens teeth on facebook. The public is supposed to "like" the pic to vote, the child with the most votes wins. Unfortunately, the other three children get crushed. This is the worst PR stunt I have ever seen come out of a dental office. It's gone viral, and a lot of people are appalled. The staff seem to have gone into hiding.

This is so sad... YOU DENTAL HYGIENIST have a lot to say for someone who does not live in this area. You are nothing but a bully...this is why no one wants to help out the community anymore because of people like you!!!! this was meant to be a great way for the community to show support for the children and businesses of this area. If you can appreciate that, then keep it to yourself. You are rude, inconsiderate, and flat out nasty. I'm sorry that your life must be so bad that you have to say stuff about an innocent children's contest. If you want to blast someone and their business, then you should at least show your name and how to contact you. Hiding behind a computer screen is all you can do because your a cyber bully. I am tired of people like you. I wish this community would stand up to people like you! Do you even know the owner? Do you know anyone that works there? or are you just going off by what you "think" you know? When you post nasty things it has more implications that you realize, but I know you don't care, because if you did you wouldn't post such things. I do hope that you are never at the other end. A word of advice, if you want to post something if it is something you wouldn't not want anyone else to say about your, your family, or career, then keep it to yourself. I'm over it! God will take care of people like you. Trust me, it always comes back around in some form or fashion.
