Let me preface this by saying I take good care of my teeth. I brush multiple times daily and floss on a daily basis. Three years ago I had medi-cal and had to go to Western dental for check-ups. I had a cavity and needed to have it filled. Normally, easily done, right? No. I ended up having to go back three separate times because the filling kept coming out the first time a few days after they had filled it. I went to the same office, but went to different dentists each time.
I went to another dentist for x-rays and cleaning about a year and a half later. The new dentist told me they had done such a poor job that now I needed a partial crown. They gave me an estimate of around $600. I went back to Western dental they looked at the tooth and said they could fix the filling for a small fee. They never mentioned I needed to get a crown (they missed that completely).
I called them today and told them I needed to make an appointment for the partial crown. I explained the situation that I had the same tooth filled several times by them and it kept coming out. I have had other cavities filled by another dental office but lost my insurance through my company and had to go to them with the medi-cal. I have never had any problems with the other fillings.
Western dental said they would be willing to do the work, but I would have to pay for the crown an estimate of $600-800. When I told them that it was not fair, if any of the three dentists in their office had done the work right, I never would have needed a crown. She told me when they fill a tooth there is no guarantee it's going to get rid of the cavity. Are you kidding me!!!! What a bunch of incompetent dentists. NEVER GO TO WESTERN DENTAL, MEXICO WOULD BE A BETTER OPTION!!!!
