I lost one upper front tooth. It was embarrassing, and wanted one and only one implaint. I should never have gone to Dr. Mokhtar in the first place, as the preferred provider on a union list was not at this number when I called. I asked the price, and a honeyed voice tells me it is “affordable”. I was never asked about the service I wanted on my first visit, and before X-rays are taken, I am given a “plan” for a mouth full of implants for an “affordable” $10,000.00. He and his assistants got together to strong arm me into having my teeth pulled. I came for one implant, which should have been a few hundred at most. Instead of aasking about why I came to the dentist, he raves aobut how he fixes mistakes made by Park Avenue dentists, and then his secretary raves about him. I got one implant, and was told it was temeporary. I had grave mis givings about returning, as I had a bad feeling about this dentist. Despite the fact that I strongly objected to having my teeth pulled, on the next visit, false teeth were already made. Dr. Mokhtar then states he “sat with my x-rays”, and implies that a serious, possibly deadly “abscess” would occurr if my teeth were not pulled. I was taken in by his lies, and perfectly viable teeth, which would still be in my mouth were yanked, pulled and foreforcefully torn from my head. I was scared and believed his contrived lies. As if this was not painful enough, the dentistl then lies and says “like butter”. the teeth were very firmly atrtached, and would have falle fallen out in years , and would still be attached. He deals wtih a shady bank, and not with credit cards, which I could contest. My “affordable” plan plan was $10,000.00 for one implant, $5,000.00 a vist. Ib addution, to this, after paying the scam fee in full and early, I am then to pay an “affordable” interest of $441.00 to this crooked bank. When my teeth come back, I will pay. I got one and only one implant, and was charged for a mouth of implants, when I came to the office for only one. This was a bait and switch scam. Never was I called when I did not come back, never was I told what to do as I was butchered and maimed. My hands shook uncontrollably as my teeth were yanked and torn from my head. My mouth bled all the way home. I was in shock, trauma, and I feld felt violated. Dr. Mokhtr;s office, then, calls for my six month checkup, at intervals which are not six months, when my teeth are ripped, gouged and torn from my head, and I am virtually toothlesss becasue of him. He is now my “family” dentist, when I had two visits, and false teeth are made up when I said I do not want my teeth pulled, after being urged by him and his staff. I should have made such a scene that the police could have been called. I am to visit for a “check-up” when I have almost no teeth, to be scammed and soaked for more “affordable” thousands of dollars. His “concern” is such that a City Worker, who lives in a walk-up in a run-down neighborhood, and is widowed, and receives no pension or social security from her late husband is charged an “affordable” (suidical) fee of $10,000.00 for one implant. I do not even have a garbage disposal in my walk-up, yet am charged an “affordable” fee of $10,000.00. This happened last February, yet time, instead of healing, only causes more pain. When my teeth were first pulled, only to enrich his bank account, Ii felt suicidal. Every day, I feel increasing agony. I am permanently mained and butchered. the implant that was put in curves inward, and is stained. On the lower teeth, whcih were pulled with great effort, as they may cause an
“abscess”, miraculously, the tooth to anchor the false teeth, is left, as it will not cause an ” abscess”. I am left maimed, butchered, and with psychiatric symptoms only to enrich a fruad who should be in jail. He has had his license suspended, and was fined $20,000.00, yet he is still free to make a piggy bank of a widow in a walk-up, in an apartment which I am ashamed to have anyone see. I am 65, and have never had an “abscess”. He took the X-rays on the first “affordable” visit, yet he subsequently” sat” with them. A former dentist is also a dentistry professor, yet he never “sat” with my x-rays. The plan to tear my teeth out were made on the firast visit, yet he “sat” wih my x-rays.
