My appointment was at 7:00 am. The offices are very nice and high tech. When I arrived no one was at the front desk and there was no sign in sheet. I and another person waited. After 15-20 minutes, someone came from the back but I was not acknowledged. Since this was my first visit and I was unsure of the procedures, I approached the desk to give my name. After about 5 minutes, I was taken to the back by the periodontist therapist. I discussed the surgery I had last year, and I showed her my periodontal chart for that period. She did a brief cleaning and measured pocket depth. She was thorough and to my surprise the procedure was not painful at all. She then took xrays. She informed me it appeared I did not have laser surgery on one side. This concerned me greatly as I distinctly remember the dentist performing laser surgery on that particular side. I told her my concern. She did not show me the xrays or discuss whether or not there was additional bone loss. She asked whether or not I visited the dentist when young. I've never been asked this question and I thought the question was very strange. Nevertheless I explained my parents like so many other parents during that time could not afford dental care and did not place an emphasis on going to the dentists. After a while, Dr.
came in and looked at the xrays. The therapist discuss with Dr.
the need to get control of the infection (?) before she would be able to provide periodontal therapy. Dr.
then briefly examined my teeth by running his fingers around my top and bottom
(he had on gloves). He did not discuss the x-rays, infection, or whether or not there was signficant additional bone loss, but he suggested I have 4-5 teeth pulled by the oral surgeon and consider implants and/or partials. He said pulling the teeth would permanently take care of the problem. By this time I am overwhelmed due to whether or not the laser surgery I had last year which was very expense was effective at all, the possibility of loosing more teeth, and the costs of implants ($$$$$). I was then taken to another room for pictures then to the front desk. The front desk staff said Dr.
and staff would come up with a treatment plan and we scheduled another appointment for me to come back in two weeks. I left Dr.
's office overwhelmed and nearly in tears. I am sure Dr.
and his staff are very good at what they do and are caring professionals. However, I feel he should have discuss in detail with me the xray results, etc. I decided to cancel the second appointment and instead seek a dentists who solely specializes in periodontal disease.
