Shannon, our oldest daughter that lives with us for right now with her four year old daughter, took said daughter to the dentist. The dentist in question is a creep. He deals with all the kids on AHCCCS for Arizona and he's an asshole. WE knew that already. But today, he drilled Samantha's tongue and it's pretty ugly looking, and didn't say I'm sorry, Oops, or fuck you. Didn't say anything. Finished what he had started and then took his gloves off and left in a huff. Shannon didn't know what to say. All she could see was all of the blood coming out of Sam's mouth and she was freaking out. I wasn't in there or I would have kicked his ass, and I mean that. What an arrogant asshole he is. So I called to be sure I had his name right and the guy that answered asked if there was a problem. I told him what happened and turned out he was the one that took care of the bloody mess that the doctor left that day. I told him that I took pictures of the tongue and I was going to see that everyone and anyone that would listen heard about this. I don't say that dentists can't make mistakes. I just think they should own up to them and be polite and nice to the child and parent. He was neither. So now I'm looking online trying to find out how you file a claim for Bad Dentists. Does anyone know where I would start? I'm going to let the state know about it, but I don't want to just stop there. Sam is such a trooper, she tried not to cry and everything. Poor darling. I need some help in finding AMA for dentists. HELP!!!!!
PS: Here are some pictures of Sam's tongue. I couldn't get a good close-up, this doesn't do it justice at all. It's quite long where he drilled. Click on the pictures and you can probably see them a little closer up. *sigh*
UPDATE AHCCCS called today and said they got my report already and have turned it into the Dental department. They have started an investigation. They thanked us for the photos and the letter explaining in great detail. She said not to worry, it was not going to be swept under the rug. So this was good news. Now if I would just here something from ADA, I would feel much better.
