What People Say About Dr. Derek Kaelin, DDS

I had a visit for a routine cleaning. He proceeded to ruin the surface of several of my teeth, by roughing them up with his drill. Several family members made comments on the noticeably visible damage he did to my teeth, including my daughter-in-law (a dental asst in KC). Within 24 hours of the visit, one of my front teeth chipped significantly, as well. I feel he was doing this, so that I would go back and get more expensive procedures done to fix them. Please beware of this dentist.

I was very disappointed in Dr Kaelin's work. He did my upper denture which was made wrong. I told him what was wrong and how they were hurting but he wouldn't listen to me but instead he got so mad you could hear him throughout the office. It was very embarrassing. All he needed to do was have the lab guy remake the denture but he would not. i ended up going to 2 other dentist's to see what they thought. They both told me the same thing. I had to pay out of pocket for a new upper denture.
