A real dentist asks a series of questions to put the patient at rest and looks in a mouth for the first session for more than 30 seconds, (it may've been even less time the dentist looked in my mouth at MAHEC.) A real dentist will not tell you the teeth beside the fractured tooth are fine and leave you to go home, look in the mirror, and discover that that the teeth he/she said are fine are actually chipped, injured and need work. This is what happened with MAHEC. A real dentist does not leave you to find additional problems for yourself that he/she can see, but MAHEC did manage to do this. IT IS A DENTIST'S JOB TO REPORT ANY PROBLEMS WITH THE TEETH OR POSSIBILITIES AS OF SUCH. MAHEC FAILED IN DOING THIS. A real dentist asks where the pain is of the mouth is, and will gather great detail instead of asking two or three questions about a shattered tooth and then stopping there, to discuss the options. A few questions is all I witnessed with MAHEC. A real dentist will check all the teeth in your mouth and your jaws after you've banged them. MAHEC obviously did not do this. I had to find further injury when I got home that the dentist missed. Also you shouldn't need to make sure to tell the dentist about a grinding habit that concerns you before a big procedure is to be carried out, because a real dentist will have already asked you about any grinding habits you may have. However this is what I witness with MAHEC. I'm reporting all these things without placing any names. the dentist, although cheery, was also rather careless about the procedure, but it seemed the people are just trained to think it's okay to be that way.
