Michael Spink Dangerous Dentist

Four posts from a doctor's review website.

I went to Michael Spink, dentist, and it was a total disaster. I walked out in the middle of the appointment. Don't be stupid like I was, spare yourself the agony, don't go to this arrogant, brutish man.

Michael Spink actually has the nerve to put M.D. after his DDS. My father is an M.D. and told me that Spink's M.D. is not valid, he got it "thru the back door" in some creepy, quickie deal where you get a dental degree and an M.D. at the same time, in a fraction of the time it would take to get a DDS and an M.D. separately. And then this clown wants to operate on your face!?! I don't think so. I wouldn't let him get anywhere near me.

Michael Spink. How much longer will he be allowed to get away with the damage he is doing to people? Post 1: AVOID THIS INCOMPETENT CLOWN! Same story with me as other posters, this man is a menace. Sterted by leaving me at home for 62 hours before he saw me in his office, because he off enjoying a long weekend. My jaw was severly broken, and he finally operated 67 hours after the break, after infection had already set in. 9 or so operations later I am finally going to a REAL surgeon to get my whole jaw reconstructed, but he ruined every tooth in my bottom jaw, and left me permanently crippled and drooling. EVERYTHING this clown did was WRONG, every, single thing! DO NOT GO NEAR THESE TWO INCOMPETENTS! Post 2: I have heard so much bad stuff about Spink. It's no wonder he has malpractice suits out against him. My sister told me he's got some kind of quickie "MD" from some school that you get both an MD and Dental degrees from in 6 short years, a quickie, shortcut that regular MDs do not respect. I didn't believe her so I called the school and Yup, they said he got his "degrees" there. Also what about him inappropriately touching women patients. Why isn't this guy in jail?

You obviously have a personal vendetta against Dr. Spink. Your posts are daunting and tiresome. You do not have any factual information. Dr. Spink graduated from the prestigious New York University. He hold two degrees and practices oral surgery under two licenses - DMD and MD. He is well trained, licensed and clearly more educated than you.
I am amazed at how much time you have spent trying to put him out of business. He helps people every day of the week and you have the audacity to try to ruin his reputation and create this image of someone he is not.
Please stop your internet tirade and posting false information about this surgeon.

There have been many complaints against dentist Michael Spink. The complaints range from inappropriate touching of female patients to doing permanent damage to more than one patient's jaw, teeth, face, etc. He got a combo dentist/MD degree in a quickie, shortcut program from NYU that only requires a very brief (like 2 yr residency). Board certified Plastic Surgeons do seven (7) years residency. Part of Spink's residency was not in the US. It was in India and was unsupervised.
    In other words, he is not a "real M.D." and he is very far from being a qualified cosmetic surgeon. This program where he got his faux M.D. is being phased out by NYU because of so many complaints.
    The above poster was left crippled and drooling. For life. The posters on myriad Dental Review sites have had similar disastrous experiences. They all invariably had to go to other dentists or real M.D.s to get the damage done by Spink repaired. And then there are the complaints about his inappropriate "accidental" touching of female patients, his arrogance, his brutish (exact quotes) behavior and even his farting (another direct quote) while he is working on you. Classy guy. But more importantly, a man that many posters have made an effort to warn the public about and these people should be thanked. It is just assumed that defending posts are posted by Spink himself.

You sound like a bum that flosses with a rope.
Thank you for the warning

Don't shoot the messenger! I have heard these same type of complaints from several different people. They all can't be making it up. They all can't be lying. They all can't be having a personal vendetta. We should thank the whistleblowers and be grateful to them. There are so many really good dentists and surgeons in the Pioneer Valley! There is no need to risk your teeth, face, jaw, health by going to someone that so many people have had bad experiences with.

It is not a rumor, it is a matter of public record- Spink has two (2) felony charges for assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, one of them on a senior citizen and the questionable use of MD after his name because he went to some quickie program where in 6 years that make you a dentist and a doctor all at the same time.

your a liar I am a patient and I read your highly venomous and false information, firstly I called East Longmeadow P.D myself and found that De. Spinks has never ever been arrested for anything not in this state nor has anyone called to make a complaint formal or informal against him, so stop lying and scaring people needlessly out of some sick spiteful agenda! No I do not work for this man but can tell you this, I have been a patient of the Spinks, since I was 6 yrs old, his Father Leon Spinks was my pediatric dentist as was my sisters and brothers, he was highly recommended and had a flawless reputation, I loved the family so much that I took my own son there, so get some meds or and or some therapy and move on twisted sister....

What is wrong with you people? You should be sued for defamation of character. Dr. Spink is very well educated, highly skilled and he saved my life with his extraordinary surgical skills. Get a life and do something that counts.

When I saw him he started reciting what he was planning to do based on a chart that was four years old. The procedure had already been done back then plus a new chart had been created which he did not look at until it was pointed out to him. At the very least this is a man who is severely overworked and should not be taking new patients

You people are sick. Dr. Spink is none if the things that you slanderous people say that he is. He is well educated and on the staff at Baystate Medical Center. He has NO sanctions against him, and his record and education are flawless. Get a life some of you, and educated yourselves before you post. You are really making yourselves look like idiots,

I never said that he was anything other than overworked. I never claimed he had sanctions against him. Only what I personally experienced with him which was a mistake anyone with too many patients and not enough time could make
