Stop hatin' on Dr Dove!.
Dr Dove's Staff is freakin' awesome. They were so good with my son (my son has ASD and usually does not like to cooperate with doctors). Dr Lara and her hygenists were so caring and patient with my son. They answered all of our questions and my son's. He loved the visit and best of all no cavities! I would recommend this place for anyone with kids! Dr. Dove Rocks!!! Just like the commercials say!
It sounds to me that the bad reviews are being posted by upset parents that #1 dont understand that medicine isnt perfect and that there are risks with any procedure and #2 they werent asking questions or listening to staff when the procedures are explained as well as pre and post op instructions and care. Lastly I trust what the professionals there tell me... not the parents who are simply making assumptions of what they feel are best dental practices and really have no clue what they are talking about.
Thank you Thank you for your review! Yes Dr. Laura is an awesome dentist, and all of our staff are well trained. It has been a bumpy road, but thanks to parents like yourself we have been able to move foward. Thanks for all the love, and support :) - Dr. Dove and Staff-
DO NOT take your kids to Dr. Dove!. He terrorized my then 4yr old daughter. She had one tiny cavity and walked out with over 10 unnecessary fillings. She felt every bit of pain even though she had his kid "cocktail/kool aid". He had her papoosed and still made her fear him so bad. I was not allowed in the room and trusted that a female nurse would ensure my daughter would be ok. She was terrified upon leaving. Two of his crappy fillings had since fallen out creating unnecessary problems. Google/youtube his name,...he is a monster in human form & his staff is just as guilty for covering up for him. Please don't take your children to him, protect them from bad dentists!
My child had a bad experience with Edward Dove. This man don't even deserve one star, only thing in my opinion this man deserves is a revoked License. He worked on my 2 year old with out being properly sedated. My boy came out crying his little lungs out. He had strap marks on his forehead that had white like sand stuff in the indents from the strap that looked like blood was right there at the surface. Nothing was wrong with his Top teeth and only thing wrong with his bottom teeth was stained from Iron drops, yet he found more work to do and stupid me I oked it thinking he knows more than I. WRONG. Starting about a week after the appoointment I started noticing his Eye or canine teeth what ever their called started having a slight surface type decay to them. It only went so far and hasnt gotten any worse. I don't know for fact but in my opinion the dentist scrapped the enamel off. I wouldn't even recommend this dentist for an animal let alone a child. I filed a complaint with the dental board. There is like 100 + horrific stories on this man dating back to decades ago. It has just sickened me to know what else went on with my baby boy since he wasn't old enough to tell me. But I can just imagine with the way he came out crying :( I don't understand why this man is still in practice. But it's time he stops because kids is what's important. Too many stories of bad experiences some physical abuse by the hands of this man. They can't all be false. I swear on the holy bible my story is very true, unfortunately :(
Don't take your kids to the Kervorkian of Pediatric Dentist.
This Dentist has hurt multiple children and his rain of terror is coming to an end for all that he has done. He is abusive, sadistic, condescending.
DO NOT LET YOUR CHILDREN BE HURT BY THIS DENTIST!!!!!!!
Check out the multiple stories by the media about the malpractice done by this so called dentist.
Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde.
On 09/16/11 I was not allowed to go back even though she was being sedated! It took them close to an hour to call her to do the work. I was NEVER told that she would be strapped down...what is the purpose of the sedation medication? Why does a sedated child need to be strapped down without a family member present? The "child cocktail" must be a hoax to collect a $150.00 fee from the Parents because it does not work. He admittedly told me after they were finished that my daughter "tried to break away" and "she kept trying to get up"! Why didn't he stop to come get me? I AM LIVID! He then said to me that "he told her she had to be a big girl and he had no more problems after that." When they walked my daughter around the corner she was horrified, crying excessively and saying "Mom I couldn't breathe.". I said what do you mean? He didn't care to explain and she just clinged to me sobbing! At home when she woke up about an hour later, she said she could not breathe because he placed his hand over her mouth while pinching her nose and telling her "SUCK IT UP YOU HAVE TO BE A BIG GIRL"! She said she could not breathe!!! He did this while she was strapped down, so not only could I not hear her yell for me BUT she could not try to fight for herself!
He has 3 office locations that I know of and has already been on the news in Bakersfield regarding this type of abuse he is causing to his minor patients! There are 2 other Facebook Groups that have been created regarding this "child specialist" Edward E. Dove, DDS 1)Bakersfied Dentist Does Not ROCK and 2)Let's investigate Dr. Dove of Chatsworth...you won't believe that this is happening frequent and often and is very unacceptable to a lot of parents! I wish I saw the news story that Bakersfield aired on him on 09/01/11 because I would have never taken my daughter to him. She has nightmares about this incident and I will have a hard time(which I already did) getting to ever go to ANY Dentist for any future treatments or cleanings! I want him sanctioned so he cannot continue to abuse and place fear in helpless children. I also want him to be in prison for abusing my daughter, because if I did what he did I would have been arrested after the Police spoke to her! The reason he continues to get away with it is because our Law Enforcement and Authorities are not doing their jobs! If he was stopped when the first parent contacted the Law, he would not have been able to do this to my daughter or the other children that have been hurt emotionally and physically by Edward Dove. Please see that this does not fall through the cracks and the necessary actions are setup to properly stop this man from abusing his position and our children!
