.

Several of my friends had advised me against going to this place but I was desperate. I had a tooth that was falling apart and causing me unbearable pain and Western Dental was the only place I could afford.
My intention was to just have the tooth pulled but I was presented with an option to have a root canal and only having to pay $40 a month after making a $600 deposit. At first I agreed to this but then after thinking it over and realizing that I could not afford both the credit card payment and the monthly payment, I decided to change my mind. I told the dentist I had decided to have the tooth pulled but she started listing the problems I would have if I had the tooth pulled and kept trying to talk me into the root canal. I told her that I would rather have it pulled but she just said, "I'm not even sure we can save the tooth so you might as well just let us try to save it. We'll probably have to pull it anyway" and walked away. I should have gotten up and walked out right then but I was in such pain that I convinced myself that I would be okay with the payments and that it was probably better to see if the tooth could be saved.
While I was waiting for the dentist, I was treated to overhearing several arguments between the dental assistants and one between the two dentists. Finally, another dentist came to work on my tooth. I was still hoping the tooth would just fall apart but the dentist managed to get the root canal done.
Two weeks later I went back for my crown and was treated to overhearing a few more arguments between dental assistants and another argument between the two dentists over what to do with a patient who was in the same situation I had been in two weeks before. That patient did what I should have done -- she walked out!
Less that six months after I got my crown, the crown came off -- with the filling material in it revealing that the dentist had neglected to put in a post which I had been charged for! Not only that but the material that had been used to fill the roots hadn't been sealed properly and smelled rotten!
I was advised that I should go back to Western Dental and let them fix the problem
but I will not go back to that place under any conditions. After my experience and the experiences my friends had, I do not trust them to try to fix the tooth and I certainly do not trust them to work on any of my other teeth. I would never recommend this place to anybody.
