hmmm....that's too bad. I totally understand your cynicism...I'm beginning to become cynical myself, and I've only been at this for 3 years!
I am still seeing him but I'm in a bit of trouble right now...the pain has returned and he can't seem to get me back to where I was a couple of months ago.
I know it is difficult to trust these guys, and after reading the experiences of people on this board, I am much more wary of dentists and their 'treatments' for TMJD. However, I dont think Dr. F. is just out to swindle patients. He has helped me so much, and because my treatment with him has gone on longer than expected, he has not charged me for an appointment in months, and I have been seeing him at least every week or two.
Of course, if he can no longer help me, and if things don't improve soon I might give Dr. Marangos' office a call. He was recommended by Dr. Rondeau in London so I'll try my luck with him if all else fails!
