I sincerely hope that none of you have fallen prey to the incompetence and lack of skill of Dr. Lucinda Garcia DDS. My friend certainly found out everything the hard way! My friend did not really have much knowledge of a build-up or crown or even a healthy root when shown on an X-ray. The X-ray showed that there was not a lot of build-up or decay under the fillings and the root also seemed healthy. The fillings/teeth were shown on the television screen and my friend was made to feel scared with talk of leaking fillings and so on. The doctor straight away worked out that a build-up was required and a root canal treatment was also made to be a part of the strategy. My friend had almost fallen for it but then another dentist, when consulted, took another X-ray and then stated that build-up was not at all needed and a lot of tooth was left to crown. The dentist honestly informed my friend that a root canal was unnecessary and there were no issues with the root.
I’m glad my friend got a second opinion but I am shocked to see how this doctor was attempting to rip off my friend with unnecessary procedures for more money. This may have also created several dental issues for my friend, none of which, I’m sure, she would have really cared about. In fact, I’ve seen other people talk about how horrible a doctor she is. The staff push sold silver filling replacement multiple times to one patient with the reasoning that one/more areas were vulnerable to cavity infiltration and mercury leaching could take place in the body. This was repeatedly stated to scare the person whenever there were visits for cleanings or other fillings. This person also consulted other dentists who talked of how replacement was unnecessary for fillings since there was no real tooth decay here. Fortunately, this person also avoided a major headache and was as lucky as my friend. Guys, please boycott such inexperienced and greedy doctors who give wrong advice and screw with the lives of patients. I only hope other people have not fallen into this web of lies or fallen for it.
