he didnt explain anything that he was doing. my eyes were closed because I was nervous, he put the numbing cream in my mouth without telling me, jabbed my gums with a needle multiple times without any warning. then he kept completely plugging my nose with my lip so I couldnt breathe through it. when I breathed through my mouth I could taste the burning flesh and that taste still wont go away. not a good experience at all

The dentist seemed like he could have been nice but I was extremely uncomfortable with how he handled me. He kept pressing down on my forehead and then my whole head was in his stomach. Definitely not OK!
