My son is in his 30's and during his first visit for extractions everything went well,BUT the second visit he had sinus drainage and Dines wouldn't work on him.Dines offered getting all the extractions done in an OR setting so he agreed.While going under anesthesia my son had a serious reaction to the medicine and it scared everyone so we decided to go back to extractions in office.He showed pain due to an abscess and Dines dropped him! NOT impressed! BEWARE!
