My Root Canal at Everett Dental Clinic
by Lawanda Simeona
I had a problem with a tooth, and being new to the area, I chose Everett Dental Clinic for treatment. I was seen and was told they would try to save the tooth. Since I'm retired, this was good news to me.
When I return for treatment, I was numbed up, and then waited a half an hour, while the dentist, J. Hong, worked on someone else. She would eventually perform a root canal and crown procedure on me.
When the crown was inserted, I told her I there was still feeling on the tooth when it was tapped. I would return to Everett Dental Clinic 3 more times for x-rays, eventually being referred to an Endodontist.
The cost of the original endo and crown was $1506.00. After the endo consultation, I was informed that I would have to have another root canal performed for an additional $103.00 for the evaluation, and $999.00 for the treatment. Fortunately, the Endodontist was able to save the original crown dental student Hong had made.
I would like a refund for at least some of the money I spent. I am also looking for a new dentist.
