It has been 1 year since I last saw Dr. Kimche, and I am now having to have 2 of the 3 fillings she did replaced because, as my new dentist puts it, "The work is shoddy. The fillings are food traps because there is essentially no contouring, and these fillings are so big and poorly done you will probably need crowns." The x-rays show right angles and big, blocky fillings.
More importantly, 4 weeks after my fillings from Dr. Kimche, I wound up with splitting pain in my lower gums under one of the teeth she filled. I was unable to sleep, and I missed 3 days of work. I went back to Dr. Kimche, and she proceeded to replace the filling with an even larger filling. She gave me loads of anesthetics, but I was still in pain during the procedure. After sending me to an endodontist because she decided I may need a root canal, the endodontist said it was likely an infection. Turns out (as a dental student friend of mine was able to tell me), anesthetics don't work with there is an infection, hence all the pain during the filling. After 3 days on antibiotics, the infection cleared and I was able to return to work. There is no way to prove she was responsible for the infection, but I will say that I've had quite a bit of dental work done and have never had that problem.
I will be reporting Dr. Kimche to the ADA; depending on the cost of the work I'll have redone, I may look into a lawsuit.
I would never recommend Dr. Kimche to anyone.
