If you had a moderate toothache for several days but just found out the office you had planned to see on Saturday (and the only one you can find open Saturday) employees someone accused (but not yet convicted) by several young (children) patients of molesting them ... would you still go to this office on Saturday?

No, I would wait until Monday
I would go but only if that particular dentist was not there
I would go but only if that dentist did not treat me personally

BTW, this was two years ago that he was accused so they have had plenty of time to take action.

I don't know the circumstances, but from what you've said, it wouldn't bother me at all. He could have killed my mother two years ago and I'd go if the pain was bad enough.

He evidently still has a license and is allowed to continue treating young patients; it doesn't seem right to treat him as if he's guilty when the law says otherwise.

My uncle molested me when I was little and many other young children but was never convicted. Does that mean people shouldn't treat him like he is guilty even though he very clearly is, just because the law sucks?

I probably wouldn't take my kids there in such a situation, but it probably wouldn't bother me so much. Also, not having a conviction makes a difference.

Yeah, unless you are a small child, go on in.

I actually ended up finding out that some women have accused him of inappropriate behavior as well.

this might be far-fetched, but i was thinking that the quality of work would be down, especially if you were worked on by the dentist accused. I mean, their minds are on the legal stuff...

Moral dilemma, sure, but his character should have nothing to do with his skill as a dentist.

His lack of skill as a dentist has been documented as well. I read some serious horror stories. That said, he would not be the one treating me but what does it say about a place to employ someone like that? That's my thinking.

I wouldn't go at all. I'd go to another office on Monday... take some Ibuprofen and sweat it out until then.
25th-Oct-2009 04:37 am (UTC)
That's what I am trying to do.

I'm strong reminded of the old joke about the Serial Killer and the woman with the flat tire beside the prison.

I do not know this joke.

A woman's out driving when she gets a flat tire. She pulls over and gets out of the car...only to discover that she's right next to the local prison. Warily, she exits the car. Setting to pulling the spare out of the trunk and putting the car up in a jack, she has the feeling that she's being watched.

Turning around, she discovers she is. Standing a few feet away from her is Henry "The Mad Butcher" Dzavoski. A fence, which seems awfully meager, is the only thing separating them. He's standing there, neutral pose, blank face, but watching her all the same.

She tries to ignore him, but is shaken. Her hands are unsteady as she jacks up the car, then begins to remove the lug nuts on the flat wheel, carefully putting them in the hubcap. Every few moments she's compelled to look over her shoulder, to check out Henry, and every time it's the same. He hasn't moved. He's still there, watching.

WHAM! Her nerves shaken, she manages to step on the hubcap on the way to get to the spare tire. This tosses the lugnuts in the air, where they fly up, only to land in a deep drainage ditch, filled with at least two feet of water, lots of pond plants, and who knows what other critters. She looks at the water. Finding the lugnuts would be near impossible even in an empty ditch, but with the stagnant pool, it's going to be nearly impossible, and dirty and dangerous to boot.

Steeling herself, she begins to prepare to march down into the morass.

"Go around to each of the other tires," says The Mad Butcher, "and take one lug nut off of each. Use those for the spare. It won't work forever, but it will work long enough for you to get to the service station in the next town, where they can at least get you some new lug nuts, if not replace your flat."

The woman looks at him. He looks back at her. She's wary.

"Look, lady, I'm crazy," he says, "I'm not stupid."

Well, I actually read some seriously negative things about his dental skills as well.
