This is the pain which my wife Wendy has had to endure due to a meeting that she received in Samuels Dental Arts in Gettysburg, Pa.. She began experiencing pain after the filling, and moved back To Dr. Berger At Samuels Dental Arts many times, but had been told that"It requires to settle", or"The pain will go off when the tooth above it receives pulled". But it did not.
When Wendy told Dr. Berger that the filling was causing her pain, she had been snippily told,"I stand by my work, there's not anything wrong with the filling". Dr. Berger wouldn't even take a follow up to verify her work.
The pain eventually advanced to constant and excruciating and we moved to another dentist. With a single x-ray which should have been taken months ago, we discovered that the filling Dr. Berger put in has been indeed irritating the nerves in Wendy's tooth.
Last night Wendy experienced a root canal to remove the filling and fix the damage.
They flat out denied.
I've never aired my grievances on Facebook earlier, but watching my spouse have to endure the pain she went because a dentist would not require a simple x-ray to check her job warrants my anger.
What type of dentist prefer to see a patient undergo excruciating pain, than admit they may have made a mistake and fix it?
