... I am so glad you had it taken care of - sorry you had to lose both teeth as a result but you did what had to be done. I agree with what everyone has said too - they should not let bad dentists practice and they should be held accountable just like medical drs are.

... I would get a copy of the medical notes from the Endo and send it to the insurance company, and ask them to get you the refund from the first dentist.

I'm glad your finally out of pain. (9 replies)

That other dentist shouldn't be keeping your money. There are some scary dentists out there but thankfully, some really good ones too, and good thing you found one. choc (9 replies)

... In my case, the canals were calcified, which my endodontist explains as natures way of doing the same thing as a root canal accomplishes by closing off the canal completely. ... (6 replies)
