My wife and I had similar problems. Not only is he incompetent, his staff isn't very good either. Plus they baited us with "Free whitening" treatments only to be told that we'd have to have over $1000 in work done before we could get them.

He is a crook! I brought my 18 year old daughter to him and he accessed she had 14 cavities. Luckily a woman I knew worked for him at the time and advised me to get a second opinion. I did and guess what? She only had 2 cavities as proven by two other dentists.. His excuse? He said they were "watches" for future cavities so he was just going to drill and fill. "Just in case" He should lose his license.
Thats pretty sad that someone who works for him actually told you that!! how scary! I have gone to him a few times and did'nt mind him. not personal but seem to be on the ball & I loved his staff very friendly! You want to talk about bad dentist here's a name for you Justin Salem Now he is outrageous! I think my teeth alone paid for his wifes cadillac. He charges way too much

This lady shows up in his office, probably with trench mouth, and expects a miracle to be performed for what teeth were not extracted????
Good luck getting a dime lady and forget about ever eating corn on the cob again.....

Dentist Moscowitz has been incompitent and people around Bennington have no other choice but to see him due to the lack of dentist in the area. He has been doing alot of dental screw ups and gets away with it cause noone can find another dentist. Something should be done about him. People need to file complaints against him with the vermont medical board association. When i complained about him he refused to see my family anymore, that tells u the kind of guy he is!
What dis you expect after you complained to the VT Medical Board, free dental work?

You ACTUALLY tried taking your family back to him? I would have THROWN you out. Don't like my work? Want to file complaints? Then go back to the same dentist? Are you dumb, or just a plain idiot?

My family has been going to Dr. Moskowitz for a couple of years now and we find him and his staff to be honest and straight forward. He is not real chatty but I don't go there to chat. I have had alot of dental work done in my years so I know a good dentist when I find one. He's a keeper in my book.

Our family started going to Dr. Moskowitz in May and have nothing bad to say about him or his staff. I have one daughter who has always been very uncomfortable in the dentist chair and had no complaints about Shaftsbury Dental. We will continue to go there.

I saw Dr M for a while only because his practice was covered under my husbands medical.Red flags started going up right from the get go....He is impersonal and curt. I also had unnecessary work done according to my new dentist. I was baited by the tooth whitening scheme- Yes I guess they are in the business to sell product and service-I only wanted basic dental care.Xrays were taken when not necessary as well as other procedures. THEY ARE AWARE OF WHAT INSURANCE COVERS.I took a hike & left very unhappy and suspicious. Told them to keep their whitening
trays.

This is the same dentist who wouldn't do a cleaning on my 6 year old daughter without her taking diazapam. 2 teaspoons for a child who only weighed 45 lbs.

Are the things you are saying about this guy actually true? If so have you made formal complaints or not and why?

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.
