Lemon Tree Dental-Canyon Golf Reviews (2)
I am rejecting this response because:
I visited another doctor two months later and asked specifically about these issues That dentist said that there was nothing of the sort and that they saw absolutely nothing to indicated my teeth/gums were in bad shape or that I needed the treatments recommended
Lemon Tree Dental recommended $5,braces in addition to the expensive and unnecessary (as determined by another dentist) gum treatments Not once in my life have I been told that I need braces The dentist I visited several months after visiting Lemon Tree Dental said there was no need for braces either
This experience is consistent with numerous other people who have left shocking similar reviews of Lemon Tree Dental in the past
These x-rays and exams were used to recommend unnecessary treatments and I should not be billed for them
