I went to Dr. Michalowski after moving to the area and it was a terrible experience. He told me I had 6 cavities, would need a root canal and crown, and put me on an extensive treatment plan. I've never had this many things come up in a cleaning ever- I drove to my old dentist out of state who told me I only had one that needed to be treated, and should not have a root canal done. She did share that different dentists have different treatment philosophies on when to drill and fill, but also said he was drilling into parts of my teeth that showed no evidence of decay. I went in for one filling, where he took out a previous filling and replaced it with a temporary one. I would have opted out of that if it had been explained to me beforehand. I was so clearly uncomfortable and he could have cared less. I could not be more convinced that your practice is one that rips off patients for money- shame on you.
