I called my dentist to make an appointment, now I dont have benefits so its cash out of my pocket. I've gone to this dentist office for years, and now that I'm older I'm just not satisfied. As a kid I would go because my Mom went there. Now my Mom has had issues with her teeth (she might as well not have any), the detnsit we originally had would fill them but not correctly so it will rot into her jaw, and end up with no teeth, and she spent thousands i[on thousands. I just thought she had bad teeth, as she never took care of them when she was younger. I went a few years back a filling fell out (the one and only filling in my mouth), my dentist told me nope I didnt have a filling, and no hole well there was you could see it, and where the leftover filling was. After that I was up and gone never been back to him, I was in so much pain and he told me nothing he could do pull the tooth. I went to another dentist in that office, everytime since I will call and make an appointment they drill me on why I go to him. I explain why. I pay money out of my pocket, and expect service. I called today and they were rather nasty, saying they arnt making appointment until after the 7th, they are closed half the time now so its hard to work in your schedule, then them hassling me why i go to this other guy and not my dentist, i feel rushed, and that they dont do a good job. I am currently looking for another dentist. Im sitting here in pain, and waiting for them to pay them for nothing.

Don't walk, RUN, to a new dentist! Since you are paying cash, I think another dentist would be happy to accept you right away. Your old dentist sounds down right dangerous.

When you are not happy with any practitioner you need to find someone who suits your needs. Hopefully you will find one that is just right for you.
