Complaint Review: Dr. Oler Cameron DDS Root Canals
Dr. Oler Cameron DDS Root Canals1411 Falls Ave. E. Twin Falls, Idaho United States of America
Dr. Oler Cameron DDS Root Canals Dr.Oler Cameron reccomended a $900 root canal over extraction on a BACK MOLAR that was obviously riddled with fractures. It absessed within days and has cost 3 ER visits and now needs an$850 Extracti Twin Falls, Idaho
I was leaving on a planned vacation for one month within days. Within 2 days the tooth started to bother me, I assumed it was from the many shots and trauma to my mouth. During my vacation it got worse and worse until I went to the Emergency Room. I was given penicillan and told it had absessed. AGAIN. As I contimued traveling I was often unable to participate in my planned activities and in fact I had many people traveling to come visit me while I was there nand for 2 weeks I could barely manage to just have dinner and then back to rest.
I missed out on several wine tastings, a dear friends Yacht christening, a visit to a high school friends home and other social gatherings i had been looking forward to. The penecillan didn't work. By the time I got to my final destination beautiful Lake Tahoe my mouth looked like there was a golf ball in it. I was in pain and this was the time I had with my aging and ill father. He took me back to the Emergency Room and I was given a shot of antibiotics as well as much much stronger oral antibiotics. Again all this cut into the time my father and I had together, I was very very dissappointed.
I returned to Twin Falls, the stronger antibiotics worked and i went back to Dr. Oler Cameron, again he could get me right in, it appears to me he doesnt have many patients. He took another x-ray and told me the tooth had cracked and now need to be extracted, great I was still making payments to him for a tooth that needed to be pulled. I went to a dentist who said he could pul it but after looking at the x-rays he said he couldnt do it. The tooth had so many tiny fractures it needed to be pulled by an oral surgeon, and any endodntiist that reccomended a root canal on that tooth was a crook.
The fractures in the tooth were obvious and there was no way it would withstand a root canal. Now I had to come up with $850 for an oral surgeon. While saving for this it absessed again and again causing me outrageous pain each time. Again limiting my activites and costing me Emergency Room visits. I have now had 2 Dentists tell me that only a greedy fool would have recommended a root canal on this fractured tooth, es!pecially because it was the very back molar that really wouldnt be missed. I got advice which has cost me alot of money, pain and practically ruined a very imprtant vacation, travelilng to go to a celebration of the life of a friend I lost.
We are at the mercyof what our dentists tell us, Dr. Oler Camereon made $900 in less than an hour and I have spent 6 months batteling with the pain and inconvenience while trying to save the othe $850 with the holidays just being over. I have no family here so I must travel to see them. I could have stayed home alone and had my tooth pulled, thanks alot Doc. It is my opinion that Dr. Oler Cameron could have cared less about me as a person. He got me in his office and with his big smile stole that 900$ from me, knowing I had to borrow the downpayment and after coming back claiming it was my own fault for not going directly to another dentist to get the permanent put in.
I told him I was leaving town within days and I had a temporary, he knew my schedule. the other crowns I have had after root canals I have waited as long as 8 months to get the permanents put in, cost being an issue and I have had 2 of these crowns for close to 2 decades without incident. I truly believe Dr. Oler should refund my money , in fact he should pay for the ER vistis. It seems obvious to anyone who looks at the tooth it should have been extracted right then and there ..... OH! BUT! Dr. Oler doesn"t do extractions. Imagine that!
