Dr Bo told me I needed to put crowns on my two lower right molars because they were worn down. He drilled the two teeth down even lower and placed crowns on them. Even though I told him I thought they were too low he would just pooh-pooh me and refused to replace them. Eventually I developed headaches and told him so. He said I should see my medical doctor.
Finally I had so much pain in my mouth I had to go to a Pain Mgmt Clinic at UOP in SF. This dentist told me the crowns were too low and had caused the problem. He wrote a nice two page report stating there was "abnormal dental function" and "dental complications". Dr Bo just ignored this report and continued to deny he had done anything wrong. Dr Bo himself sent me to an endodontist and told me I needed a root canal. This endodontist put this in his report - replace crowns? Need adjustment?
Dr Bo simply would not listen to anyone including specialist who told him that that was the problem. He simply refused to take care of the substandard work he had done. He asked me to find a new dentist. I have been a patient of Dr Bo's for 20 years. I raised my only daughter under his care. I am a low-income person and simply cannot afford the thousands of dollars it will cost to repair my teeth. Prior to this dental work I had only had my teeth cleaned. Dr Bo would always say to his hygenist "ask her how old she is" because I had only three fillings in my mouth and a perfect bite.
Now thanks to Dr Bo's incompetence I will have to have an implant in the front tooth and maybe crowns on all front teeth costing thousands. When I went to the Lab to find the receipt for the crown I learned that Dr Bo had installed 72 crowns that month. The average busy dentist only does 30 - 40 so you can see Dr Bo overtreats and that is why he refused to replace two crowns he had made too low. Thereby ruining my bite and damaging all my front teeth. Dr Bo is incompetent, negligent and a man on extremely poor character.
I would not send my worst enemy to him. Frankly I think he should lose his dental license. I will report him to the dental board in Sacramento. If anyone wants to know if he overtreated you by placing a crown on a tooth that didn't need it to get money call me. I have a list of names of all the people he placed crowns on the month he placed my crown. It was given to me by the Lab. I can only stay away from this evil and incompetent man.
