I was referred to CCDC by Small Smiles because they couldn't do the work either. I was told that CCDC specializes in children's dentistry and that they have the oral technology to repair and sedate children. I have a 3 year old who had to receive dental work on 3 teeth. CCDC don't allow parents in the back w/ the dentist, which I find suspect.. I asked for 2 porcelain fillings and to clean the decay in the other tooth. They gave me a quote of $1200 & they proceeded to do the work. The first visit was incomplete & it appeared as if they did nothing because they claim that my child could not be sedated. My child came out of their office crying, depressed, had a swollen red mouth, intoxicated, and unstable. They said that they would complete the rest of the work on my 2nd visit, which was a month from that date.
The 2nd visit they charged me an extra $240. The dentist came out to greet me and then became irrate and her voice escalating to yelling when I started asking questions. Then she tells me she wants to pull all 3 teeth. I told her that I've had this discussion w/ her before and she will not be pulling out my baby's teeth. I also know that they get more money for pulling teeth and it's less work for them, but this really showed me their lack of integrity. Can you believe my baby came out of their office with not one single freaking thing done to his teeth!!! They claimed that they did all of their work. I look at my baby's teeth and they still make me sad....they did nothing! I asked them what happen to the fillings? They told me that only a hospital which specializes in children's dentistry could do it. I was told they specialize in children's dentistry.
I also noticed many other children having to leave and not gettting what they promised. I didn't know such incompetance existed! I truly believe that they are running a scam. They will be very happy to know that they are going to reimburse my insurance company for every penny!!!
