Very bad experience
I went to Dr. Nouri for a few cleanings and he always made me uncomfortable- I got the feeling that he didn??t take me seriously. Then, I went to him with a toothache and he told me that I should floss. I was very upset because I have always taken painstaking care of my teeth. A few weeks later, the tooth got worse, and Dr. Nouri sent me home with advice to get sensidine toothpaste. A few weeks after that my jaw was clenching up since I could only eat on one side of my mouth, and he sent me home again, this time telling me that I should floss and use mouthwash (I already do).
I always asked Dr. Nouri questions, but he made me feel like I was the one pulling teeth; I never got a good explanation for why he thinks the tooth hurts.
I finally went to a different dentist, and in less than 1 minute, he saw that my tooth was cracked, all the way to the center! He showed me a picture and I couldn??t believe how obvious it was. He scheduled a root canal immediately, and the pulp was infected and on the verge of becoming a painful abscess. I sincerely wish I had switched dentists before it was too late.
