William Lents II, DDS / Poor dental treatment
I went to Dr. Lents to investigate getting dentures. After the initial examination, he told me that I needed 4 or 5 crowns, but dentures would be cheaper. When I went back to begin my extractions, I told him that I had changed my mind and wanted to save my teeth. Now he tells me that I need 12 crowns! He convinced me to start the extractions. My first hint of a problem..no numbing jelly. He was so sadistic when administering the nerve block that I had to spit blood from my mouth after the injections and I thought he was ripping my mouth apart. The second visit went the same way. At the third visit, I told him that he needed to take it easy. This time he applied numbing jelly before the injections and they were not quite as painful, BUT, when he started to extract the first tooth at this visit I told him I still had feeling in that tooth. He said I was wrong and kept pulling. I tried to get him to stop, but too late. The pain was incredible!! He finished pulling my teeth and began putting sutures in my gums. When he got back to where he extracted the first tooth, I yelled and pulled away because I could still feel the needle. He said, "I guess the nerve block did not take effect." Well, NO KIDDING. I tried to tell him that before he extracted the first tooth without a nerve block but he would not listen. I have been back three times with my misaligned dentures trying to get them right. The front teeth are not even or level and the back teeth do not touch and all the teeth ij the deture plate are too small. I chew with my bottom teeth against the inside if the denture plate. He says these are the best dentures I can get. DO NOT PATRONIZE THIS QUACK BUTCHER!!!
