Sorana Munteanu, DDS Gentle DDS General Dentist Internet
I was a patient for about 4 years, had a lot of work done and the price was more expensive than the previous dentists I had. I thought she was doing a good job till I had the bridge work done. The root canal she insisted I have to have redone got infected as soon as the bridge was put on it. When I came with an infection, she told me everything was done properly and that happens regardless... She told me the only way to fix it was to remove the bridge, extract the infected tooth and put implants or a 4-tooth bridge... oh and that cost about $10,000 total, after I just wasted half of that - on now worthless bridge and root canal. She did not want to do a tooth extraction to clean the infection and put it back as it is practiced by holistic dentists, she told me it's not going to work, and no, she would not even give me a discount, even if I chose to fix it with her knowing her advice resulted in a lot of wasted time, pain and money to say the least. Needless to say, I was very VERY upset. It took me some time to even go to another dentist.After, I have consulted 5 other dentists thus far and had full mouth x-rays, I got another shocker -- the bridge was not even properly fitted, which likely caused the root of the tooth to split. The material used in the bridge was poor grade since it has caved, and all, ALL of the crowns she has done within 6 years need to be replaced!!! Now I am simply furious!I saw her last time about 3 years ago, she did not have oral camera, digital X-rays, or proper procedure to remove mercury fillings. She will not do cubic zirconium implant either. She is also one of those lawyer type of dentists who charge you for consultation, not like she doesn't charge you enough for the shady work... Thinking back I did have a suspicion that I did not need all that work she did done at that time, and that something maybe off (she crowned a tooth on which she replaced a filling a year prior to that) but unfortunately, I trusted her.Do not do the same expensive mistake!
