All right! I was for a long time thinking to get all my teeth painted white someday. Too much coffee, all that junk, and cigarettes of course had taken toll on my teeth. My teeth were as pale as gold. And, although, I was serious about teeth whitening treatment, somehow I was not able to get it done for reasons…I do not really care about now.
My family members, friends, and even colleagues at work had started complaining about teeth, which you know were getting worse with each passing day. So finally one day I thought yeah I got to do it if I want to look good and presentable. That is exactly when my journey to getting the colour of my teeth back began. Like everybody, I researched online for a couple of suggestions and stumbled upon quite a few interesting names in the business. There were a couple of friends of mine too who came to help me out. I met quite a few dentists then but none of the meetings could really work out. My friends said that I was being too obnoxious but that is how i was. I wanted things to be just right for me and my body parts. Teeth are very important features of your overall personality, right? So it makes sense to go a bit insanely wise at times when things are not going according to your plans. And I chose to go that way.
Then finally one day, I stumbled upon website “www.beverlyhillsdentist.com” and got really impressed with what Dr. Armine Nazarian had to say about her dentistry and other services. She was a bit expensive but I still sort of wanted to try it…even when i knew the whole bla bla shit was out of my budget…completely. Well, that is who you call…the real marketing genius…huh! For me Dr. Armine was a real marketing Einstein…who with her wits and marketing gimmicks can woo you into buying her services that you do not even need.
So I went to meet her the next day after fixing an appointment on call. The phone number is 310-277-8215. The address 300 S Beverly Dr Suite 303 i cannot forget it. I still curse myself for that day when i decided to get this treatment get done there. When i arrived there…there was this lady at the reception who…was on a call with someone and did not even bother to look up at me. I stayed there for a while in hope that she will at some time for sure bother to hang that phone down and care for her business. But Jeez, she did not. Finally, I had to make those coughing sounds to draw her attention. And bingo..there she was…finally looking at me.
She handed over some papers to me, which i took a while to fill. And that’s it. There was no humane exchange of words whatsoever. That was rude. Vey rude in fact. There was nobody else. No other staff. Strange isn’t it? I mean there was so much about this clinic there on the web…and here in reality, it looks like a deadspot infested with blood sucking zombies.
Anyway! After all those formalities, I finally got a chance to see Dr. Armine who in her cabin too like her receptionist outside was on call with some patient I guess. She with all those tools and liquid solutions examined my teeth. She advised me teeth whitening treatment, which, in comparison to treatments I had till now researched, was very expensive. But since i needed the best treatment for my teeth i did not think much about it and gave in. Till this time, i was convinced and happy and was proud on my decision, oblivion to what was in store for me. This clinic is you know kinda unhygienic and this isn’t something only i am saying. There are many out there who are complaining of the same thing.
I had to be there at Dr. Armine’s for 8 sittings spaced around 8 days apart each. The first sitting itself was a painful experience. When I complained of this she as you know gave me some scientific explanation. I could not just say anything after that…but bear the pain through the sitting. The pain after a few hours subsided to an extent but came back in the dead of the night and remained there for a couple of hours. The pain kept coming back on and off. However, this doctor was not just ready to take responsibility of her mistakes. She kept blaming her incapability to an unknown dental side-effect.
This continued for quite some time after that. There was just no visible result of teeth whitening and besides that there was pain. In my next sitting, I told her everything about the pain and no visible results…to which she flung another scientific explanation at me. I had no option but to buy what she was saying. The other few days after this sitting was quite normal but then suddenly excruciating pain started happening…i called her up to fix an appointment immediately..but she was not there despite being her day. I decided to go there unannounced. She was not there. She came in late after a brief examination very unprofessionally broke the news that my teeth now have some sort of dental infection…i will have to buy some other treatment for that…which is even more expensive than teeth whitening. When I said that it is due to the whitening treatment only that it is happening…she denied it outrightly…citing several reasons I did not ask for. When I said I cannot afford another treatment…she very professionally said she can’t help. That was the height of the unprofessionalism. I demanded my money back…and there was some clause in the papers i had signed while registering that the money paid is non-refundable. I did not lose money only, but also my faith in dentists. The pain subsided after some time, but my teeth are still yellow as gold. So I would advise you all to not go Dr. Armine who is a thug in reality. She is a liar. I have heard from a friend of mine now that she also fills in a aesthetic surgeon…horrible!!!!!
