This Dentist is abusive & has been getting away with it. Do not allow your child.to be another victim of Dove's, like my son was! You should always be allowed in the back with your child & this Man will not let u! Why not? And why does he have to give all children sleepy medicine & strap them down? Our wonderful Pediatrics Dentist who does neither of these things! She has also had to fix 4 different teeth Dove "fixed". Please save your child & go to a Dentist who supports u & your child in positive ways! I've heard too many other heartbreaking stories of abuse taking place at this office!
If you have had a bad experience with Dr. Dove and your child please come to this page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/LetsinvestigageDr.Dove/. You are not along, many of us have gone through this with this horrible man!
Please, DO NOT take your precious children to Dr. Dove. First of all, he will not allow you to be with your child while they work on him/her, you have to wait in the waiting room, while you hear them scream and cry!!
WORSE, my 5 1/2 year old son came home without his bonding on his front tooth last week. When I called Dr. Dove's office to come in, I left a message and did not receive a call back. When I called again, I was treated so disrespectfully, as if my son and I were lying how his bond came off. I had to ASK for an appointment, which they could not see him for over a week, with an exposed tooth!! When we came in they made us wait an hour, told us they "fit us in" (as if they did us a favor) and wanted us to pay $75 before they even looked at him.
Dr. Dove would not stand by his work, said it could not have "just come off". It's only been 8 months since the work was done and Dr. Dove said if it happened in the 1st few months, then he would have not charged me. Does not make much sense!!
His staff literally kicked us out of their office, locked the door (like we were going to do something to them) and when we knocked to get our x-rays, which we already paid for, they would not open the door!! NOT A PLACE YOU WANT TO TAKE YOUR CHILDREN!!
Remember to go with your 1st instincts, mine were telling me to go to another Dentist, but we had a lot of work to be done on our son and I knew Dr. Dove had 3 different offices and thought he must be good, but I was right on with my instincts!!
Just found out he slapped my child too!! We need to all get together and go to the Police. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if this has happened to you too! Let's stop this from happening to any other child!
