Ten questions for dentists
A Turn of Events
I consulted with the DDS today and we "had it out" including me
telling him exactly what I thought of him, and his dentistry, and how
I felt I deserved to be treated better. I gave him your note, Steve,
your unoffical second opinion - along with the photo's I sent you, and
the sketch of the overjet.
After reading it carefully he assured me he did indeed want the
opportunity do the job again. He said he would use a better lab, where
communications were stronger.
He then went through the steps he'd would go through, many as outlined
in your note, which were to wind up with a perfect bridge before using
temp cement for a final try on.
Since this sounded too good to be true, I then asked: Well, what if
turns out badly? He said, 'It won't, it can't, I'm going to give it
all I've got, were on the same page now' He promised to focus all his
attention on satisfying me. And there would be no charge.
At this point I actually smiled!
This seemed like a far better option than getting my money back and
going to yet another strange (perhaps crumby) DeltaPMI dentist, and
perhaps having another heck of a time.
We shook hands on this. Twice!
Kudos to you Steve! I can't thank you enough for the great support you
The work appointment isn't for a couple of weeks yet. I'll definetly
keep you informed. I appreciate the SMD board tremendously! When I
left my first post, I was totally down in the dumps. I really had no
idea that actual DDS's gave advise there and was quite surprised when
you all did. Thanks Joel, and 'the other Steve', and Bill and all else
who took the time to share great information with me.
