Michael L. Ortman, D.D.S. — Worst Dentist I have ever visited

I am 53 years old and get my teeth cleaned every six months. After being laid off, I got a new job, and with it came new dental insurance. I had to find a new dentist who took my insurance. Dr. Michael L. Ortman, D.D.S. was the closest provider to my home. When I got there I got very anxious as I had to fill out tons of paperwork about payment plans. I had extensive X-rays done, then my exam (without a cleaning first, which to me seemed very odd). Then a woman came in and prodded my teeth with some kind of instrument. I was informed that I needed a type of scraping done, where they numb your mouth and then shoot antibiotics in your gums. Then I was told that my dental insurance would not cover the total cost of the procedure and that I would have to pay $275 out of pocket. I explained to the office manager that I was only making $15 an hour, and with that, I was supporting a disabled husband and a disabled son. There is no way I could afford $275 to get my teeth scraped. Well of course they tried to sell me on the payment plan, but I said No and asked for regular cleaning. The dentist came out and told me that it was “against his principles” to clean my teeth and that I should find another dentist if I couldn’t pay the price. Well, I DID find another dentist, and guess what?? He told me that I didn’t need any such scraping. I had no bleeding of the gums, and there was no reason in the world why I should have to pay for such a thing. He said he would have been surprised if this was the first time someone came to him with this story, but that he has treated about SEVENTY-FIVE patients that told him the exact same thing. The Office Manager felt so sorry for me that she waived the normal $5 fee for sending me my X-rays to give to my new dentist.

If you or your attorney direct any threats towards ComplainsBoard or its owners of this site, then said post will promptly and permanently be placed on our ineligible for arbitration list and the post will be locked forever. Our arbitration removal process is simple and straightforward, some foolish individuals chose other methods in an attempt to get content removed from this site. All of their efforts have failed and all of their arbitration offerings are permanently revoked. These individuals and or their attorneys have stupidly made threats, filed complaints with Google, filed DMCA Takedowns, filed court orders, complained to our web host, demanded or attempted to take legal action against the owners of this site. We have ZERO tolerance for this conduct and you can be assured that any removal attempt will ultimately fail!
Also, we just signed up with a site called legalthreats.com Free Speech site that publishes legal threats and we will be sending all the legal threats we receive to. We will add a link to them shortly. The threats are published and indexed by the person making the threats and by the lawyer or other idiot who has never read Section 230 of the CDA and still wants to bother us with frivolous legal claims. In other words, your threats will cause your name to appear in another site, it’s what some call backfire. Don’t be stupid, you won’t scare us.
If you see the flashing text an alert “Ineligible For Arbitration” on any individual pages or post, then you should know that there is a ZERO chance of the posted content ever being removed. This ultimately means that the content will remain on this site indefinitely and there will be no exceptions.
