On 7/30/15 (a Thursday) I went to my Periodontist/Dentist, Steven Uretsky, d.m.d., suite 201, 1900 Murray Ave. Squirrel Hill, 15217, for my regular 3 month teeth and gum cleaning. I have been his patient since 2008 and never had a problem. The evening before the appointment and the morning of, my teeth, gums and mouth felt normal. Upon arrival at Dr. Uretsky's office, he applied a topical anesthetic to my teeth and gums (which he had never done before). He then proceeded to give me the most painful/deep cleaning and scaling that I had ever had. After I left his office, my mouth, teeth and gums hurt very severely. Each day it got progressively worse and I could not eat or chew for 6 days. I called him Monday, 8/3/15 and asked to see him, but he put me off and said to gargle with salt water (which I had been doing) and call him later in the week. Finally, on Wednesday, 8/5/15 he agreed to see me. Upon an exam and xray, he said that it was a coincidence, not his issue, and that I needed a root canal, which I got later that day (from an endodontist/dentist). And while he assured me that it was not his fault, he still felt a need to contact both my other dentist and endodontist about this, violating my privacy and confidential records

Dental surgery performed 4 yrs ago, results are good. Dr Uretsky provides excellent control of patient's anxiety and pain. I liked being treated by him and would have used his services again if needed.

Dr Uretsky is truely talented. The procedure was painfree. He was patient with giving me breaks to rest my jaw. They were terrific with planning, scheduling, and informing me of costs. I knew exactly what my insurance would cover and my costs. I was very happy with the results.

I know this doctor: 2 years
