Dr. Jeffrey Rubin extracted the two bottom front teeth which were destroyed by another dentist. He did not give me the option of implants because "he doesn't do implants."

He installed a bridge which on the day it was put in it was obvious that my top teeth could not close over the top of it. He filed down my teeth to try to make it fit, but it would not. The bridge was also mobile (confirmed by 3 other dentists) and caused the anchor teeth to become abcessed. This left me in great pain. He said I would get used to it and continued to prescribe me with massive amounts of pain relievers - at one point telling me to go to a different pharmacy so they would not get suspicious.

The insurance company declined all grievances I filed (Delta Dental). I found out that he had written to them a statement full of lies including accusing me of destroying the bridge myself (how can I make the bridge too large?). He even wanted to crown all of the top front teeth to correct the problem. I noticed while in his office that he had shelves full of trays with bridges in them - obviously this is how he makes his money.

He refused to communicate with me and has his attorney (whom he obviously has to use often) contact me.

The News-Press is investigating along with the MANY dentists willing to come forth to say what he did was wrong and it will soon be in the media.

He has ruined my mouth and left me in great pain for over 8 months now.

Why attack the patient?

AUTHOR: steven - ()

Dr Rubin,

Do you really believe libeling the patient lessens your responsibility as a dentist?


This is just another example of your petty unprofessional behavior.


Buyer Beware!!!

Jut type in his name at the Florida Board of Dentistry.

#3 UPDATE Employee ..inside information

Disgruntled Patient

AUTHOR: Dental Asst - ()

I am Dr Rubins assistant and witnessed this patient personally threaten this doctor physically because his work wasnt being done fast enough. There is even an affidavit to prove his threats. What this liar doesnt tell you is that the lower left bridge in the photo was his final bridge which he picked up from the office the day Dr Rubin was supposed to complete his case and took it without letting the doctor finish. He also doesnt tell you that he is collecting Medicaid benefits from the State of Florida for complete disability and has his own company where he constructs custom made furniture on In addition after Dr Rubin wrote off 75% of his bill and zeroed him out he still wanted Dr R to bill insurance for a future procedure so he could profit from the work which is insurance fraud.Dr R researched this liar and found an IRS lien against him as well as insurance judgement. Florida Department of Law Enforcement is now investigating him

Another dissatisfied patient

AUTHOR: steven - ()

This is no doubt written by Rubin. I was a patient for nine months and he went through no less then five assistants. He kept my money and ruined my teeth. I have filed a complaint with the Board of Dentistry and will not stop complaining until this hack's license is revoked. Beware!!!

#5 UPDATE EX-employee responds

This report is false

AUTHOR: Dental Asst - (United States of America)

I worked for Dr Rubin for 5 years and was employed during this treatment. I can only say that in my 5 years working for him the work was done very carefully, precise and with superior quality. As for this patient Dr Rubin prepared the teeth and took an impression. The patient came back a second visit to seat the bridge and NO additional cutting was necessary. No dental lab will make a bridge to be retrofitted at the next visit.As for the pain meds, Dr Rubin NEVER gave more than 28 tablets to anyone and made sure they lasted a week before he would refill them. After 4 weeks if Dr Rubin suspected there might be a medication problem he would prescribe a non-narcotic pain reliever. The patient filed complaints against 3 other dentists with the Dental Board and in fact filed a malpractice suit against the dentist who treated the patient immediately prior to Dr Rubin. That dentist was a Board Certified Crown and Bridge Specialist. Both Delta Dental Insurance and the State Board found that Dr Rubin did NOTHING wrong and no attorney would file a malpractice case against him as a result of those findings. People need to understand that there are 2 sides to every story and it is not fair for people to read only one side without knowing some relevant items from the other side.
