Dr. Ellen Polsky overstepped her boundaries with my child
My child was to have 4 canine teeth removed, one tooth was very loose. The only sedation for my 8 year old was a little gas and two injections in her gums. They waited only 5 minutes to pull her teeth, the first one was the bottom loose one. My child screamed, said she was in pain. I asked about putting her to sleep for the remaining 3, it was discussed and I agreed to make another appointment to have the other 3 pulled while putting my child under heavy sedation. Although I had originally signed my consent to have these teeth pulled, I changed my mind after my child was screaming in pain, and I told Dr. Polsky to stop, do not pull another more teeth. This dentist, took it upon herself, dismissed my objection, pretended to "just look" at the tooth, and pulled the other bottom canine tooth with my child screaming in agony. My child was terrified, and her mouth hurt for several hours after the extraction. When I made a complaint to their office about Dr. Polsky, I was told to go to another dentist, they did not want my business. My insurance referred me to "Affordable Dentist" in Tacoma, who kept putting me off on dental appointments for my child and I found out why....this office is co-owned by Dr. Ellen Polsky too. I cannot find her on the register with Washington State ADA, but I am filing a formal complaint against this dentist. She is the worse dentist I have ever seen who has traumatized my child. I had been going to Kids Choice for several years and never encountered this dentist prior to the day my childs extraction appointment. I give her a 1 star rating only because a zero rating is not an option. I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS DENTIST TO ANYONE.
