What People Say About Dr. Karl Armstrong, DDS
RecentMost Helpful
Reply
In January 2017 I had a chipped tooth. Dr Armstrong did a root canal. After the appointment he said that the tip of file broke off in my tooth, which was normal. Started to get pain, he said I should have it pulled. Went to another dentist for a cleaning and got a Xray that showed the ENTIRE file had broken off. Had to go to a endodontic to get it removed and treat the abscess that had formed. Thanks to Dr. Armstrong, I now need a crown and $1700 of additional work done to save the tooth.

My son saw Dr. Armstrong in December 2016. My son has thin enamel and had calcium deposits on his teeth. Dr. Armstrong suggested that we get a head of the potential cavities and drill out the calcium on his teeth and treat it like they were cavities (20 teeth and $6000). After a month, the fillings started to crumble out of his teeth. The same thing happened again due to wrong treatment. 12 months later and 3 specialists later, it cost $20,000 because he now needed crowns on all of his teeth

Was charged $76 for a free consultation. They say that because the dentist 'looked' at my son's mouth, that it was now considered an 'exam' instead of a 'consultation' and as such had to be charged. We scheduled only for a free consultation, and the dentist glanced at my son's mouth for literally less than 5 seconds while my wife held my son's mouth open. The rest of the five minute consultation, or 'exam', was spent talking about whether a frenectomy was needed or not. Very deceptive company.
