Telling the Truth

Wartburg, TN

I feel compelled to tell everyone about Associates in Dentistry & the events that took place!
I had a miserable beyond horrific experience there the other day!
I had a tooth that was broke off and was starting to hurt really bad, but I don't have any dental insurance so I went thru the Christian Care Center for their help, which it was appreciated but here is the problem!
The dentist acted like I was nothing and he only gave me one shot then sent me back to the Christian Care Center and about 35-40 minutes later I was back in his chair and he was going to start to pull my tooth. I ask him about getting anything else to numb it because it wasn't numb at all, and he said no that it will be ok big guy!

So as he proceeded with my tooth... It was awful and excruciating pain as his nurse held my head and he held me down with his for-arm and proceeded to twist and crank on my tooth. I was hurting so bad I had my hands clinched together and holding my breath, he said "let your hand loose and start breathing again" then he proceeded to use the air saw to cut gaps in my tooth to get the clamps on it...all this time I was feeling all the pain...it was like torture! I asked him several times to please numb it...and should I still be feeling this?
Then he pulled it down one way and took a metal punch and like hammer hit it a few times and then he broke it loose and re-clamped then pulled it the other way.... I had such a pain go through my head like my jaw was braking in around my eye socket...he finally did get it out...and I was glad it was out, but I am in more pain now that I was with just the tooth ache!

The dentist didn’t even clean me up they threw my tooth in a cup and left me in the chair, a few minutes later another nurse came in and cleaned me up and gave me gauze.

I was told that I couldn't get any medicine not even Antibiotics because it is infected that Motrin should take care of you. Because I was through the Christian Care Center they couldn't give me any medication!
I am in agony and pain far worse than the tooth ache was, with a swollen jaw that feels broke and infection that is making me sick.

I am left worse that when I went there, the help that the Christian Care Center provided is really appreciated but the manner that the dentist has dealt with this is highly inappropriate and makes me extremely angry just because I didn't have a few hundred dollars to throw at him...

This is the worst experience I have ever had and am truly in pain, when asking for at least Antibiotics it was left on deaf ears...

I am sharing this experience to for warn anyone who may go there in the future!
I am as well following up with other channels of reporting this behavior.
It is the worst feeling in the world to be sitting there in the chair feeling everything just because he didn't want to fool with me... and I didn't have any money!
I have been told that for a tooth to be pulled they usually give at least 2 shot and can administer up to 6 if it is not numb enough!
And all I got is 1 shot and he start working on me 35-40 minutes later and it wasn't numb at all!

No ONE...NO ONE... should have to go through this and if he is not capable of having more compasion and empathy for his patients he doesn't need to be there!!!

I have been there a few times and will never go back. They are the most unprofessional people I have ever seen at a dentist office. There is such a thing as confidentiality that they are supposed to go by, but they have thrown that law out the window several times. They are rude and obnoxious. If you owe them a few $$$ they will never let it go even though you have spent several hundred $$$$$$$$$$$ there.

I have been told that if it is infected, the numbing medication will have no effect and you should take antibiotics for at least a week prior.
I guess I have to be the exception to the rule. My experience went quiet well. It was a lady that pulled my tooth. She numbed me with one shot that lasted long afterward and didn't hardly hurt me while she was giving it to me. She worked quickly and even though the tooth broke which was my fault for waiting til I had a hole large enough to put a peanut in it, she got both halves out without much torment. They were polite and profession with me. Her, the attendant and the receptionist.

Lay off the crack pipe, it is starting to alter your thinking. First off, NO it should not be a gut wrenching experience. Don't forget that in most cases are paying customers. That means paying to get a job done. Second you wouldn't have a job if it wasn't for the customers. Maybe all the customers should come to the denist in a pissed off mood and make the lazy dental aids earn their money.

I took my family there for cleanings and was NOT impressed. As another person said, they do not know anything about confidentiality! They talked openly in front of the patients in the waiting room and the dentist even came out and asked me if I knew if my daughter was to old to have flouride! How should I know that? I'm not a dentist! They then got out a book to see what the age limit was! Needless to say my kids begged to go back to our regular dentist! I have never set foot in there since!

I went there once. I had a chipped tooth repaired. He spent all of 10 minutes on it and charged me $300.00. The repair lasted about 3 months. I won't be back.

first of all i really like everyone at associates and dentistry they do abide by the confidentiality and if you are paying cash they always give you a discount whom ever said a three min dental job cost them three hundred dollars must have them mixed up with another dentist office or all of you must be mad because you didn't get the drugs you where searching for. hahaha that is what you get(no drugs). everything that has been posted on here has to be a lie or you would be brave enough to post your real name. but no that wont happen because you know that you will be right back in their office the next time you have a tooth ache and you just don't wont them to know who you are!so don't talk bad about them when they are all great people and also the dental aides are very hard workers at least they don't sit around and talk bad about people like you guys they are trying to clean your nasty teeth that has been messed up from doing drugs. This tooth fairy wouldn't even leave you a sticker under your pillow. I would surprise you with a tooth brush and tooth paste. then maybe you wouldn't have to go back to the dentist.I hope they find out who you guys are and get you guys for slander!!!!!
