My sister had a gap between her teeth and she needed a doctor to fix it. After getting a reference from her colleague, she went to Dr. Michael Luther who is a doctor in Temecula, United States. She was looking for quick results. I accompanied her and after thorough understanding of the case, we paid advance for the Invisalign.
In the very next appointment, he put braces around my sister’s teeth. After a month’s time, we met him with a complaint that there was no change in the teeth. He said that it would take some time and we needed to wait for some more time. We did that. We were patient. However, as time passed by from months to months, it started bothering me and my sister.
There was no change. After that failure, Dr. Michael put 6 Lumineers on her teeth which made her teeth look yellow, and bulky. She even had bacteria infection because of that. The work was completely lethargic. On top of that, he did not even give us retainer which everyone gets after taking off their braces.
After the braces were off, the teeth started to shift back. We went to show him the change in the position and he again put braces around her teeth. The teeth started looking even worse. Also, they become sensitive and she had pain while she smiled. Her jawline hurt whenever she tried to smile.
She had trouble eating. She was not able to smile and eat. Her teeth became too sensitive that they hurt whenever even a little pressure was applied. He overcharged for everything. He said that he was giving us the best deal for braces and Lumineers and took away $9000 for all the pain in return.
After he could not fix anything, I asked for a refund. However, as I expected, he declined to do so. He did not even offer a fixing treatment which we anyway would have rejected. The staffs were equally rude and scammers. They kept saying that the doctor was completely inexpensive. On the contrary, he charged us a total of $20,000. He was also very unprofessional. He kept attending calls in between of the treatment. He left my sister for over 15 minutes when attending a call in between of her treatments.
She was completely taken for a toss. She was not taken care at all. This guy is an idiot. He knows nothing about his profession. I believe he is not even an orthodontist.
So, we looked for another doctor and he was also shocked after seeing the results. He also said that whosoever had worked on the teeth was a novice. He wasn’t able to believe that an orthodontist could go so wrong.
Later, he worked on the problem and we had to pay extra $12000 for the changes. Although the teeth are better now, the experience took a toll on my sister. For a very long time, she had difficulty in eating. Never go to Dr. Michael Luther for treating your teeth or you would be scammed too.
