I wish I never found this dentist. His website says, "minimally invasive" and used to say "pain free"--not so. He filled a wisdom tooth so high that the top tooth was hitting the bottom one, causing pain, swelling, and TMJ. I went back 2 weeks later in pain and he unnecessarily drilled 4 teeth without cavities, two with sealants that were fine, and two gum lines that just had stains from a permanent retainer. What's worse is that he did all 4 fillings without novacaine in less than an hour, and did not even correctly sand them down. I went to another dentist the next day who looked at the x-rays and the stains on the opposite side and told me that there were no cavities in those teeth! Dr. P wanted me to come back so that he could drill/fill the other side and the new dentist said don't go back to him b/c the other side does not have cavities! 2 months later and I am still in pain, so it looks like it will all have to be redone. Dr. P tried to push me to get his $500 nightguard, which my new dentist said that I did not need. He even filled a tooth in the past without taking an x-ray. He uses a meter that is off. Also, he did not tell me what teeth he would be filling. This was the most painful, WORST experience of my life.

I know this doctor: 2 years
