    • Holy cow. Good reason to check Yelp reviews in the future…this place gets trashed by basically anyone who’s ever been there!

    scary!

    I just read an article that he was arrested earlier in January when he landed in NYC, returning from a trip to Pakistan, and then was released on bail. Seems like this was his first DC court appearance, but it seems weird that he would have been re-arrested.

    • Perhaps this is just a formality at this point? It seems to reference the same incident for which he was arrested in NY.

  • Oh god, that’s awful! I’m already scared of having to find a dentist (I’m horribly overdue!), this is quite the demotivator!

    • Plenty of female dentists. Never heard of them doing anything predatory with patients.

    • Add this to the list of reasons that conscious sedation/general anesthesia is inappropriate for the office setting.

      You need someone trained monitoring your vitals and IV and multiple people in the room makes sure that everyone keeps their hands out of your pants.

    • Go to Modern Dentistry. Everyone there is wonderful. Front desk staff, hygienists, dentists. I had a bad accident last year involving my teeth, and Dr. Abramson was phenomenal. I also have been a general patient for 6 years now. so can also attest to the positive experience of general check ups. They never push unneeded services on you, and will even refer you to specialists outside their office when they know it will be to your advantage (instead of keeping you in house to charge more $$).

      • second this, though MD isn’t without its hiccups. i’ve had some issues with their scheduling and auto-reminder.

      After a 6-year dentist hunt, I have landed happily at Modern Dentistry in Tenleytown (despite not living near there) and definitely recommend them.

    • Pam Brady at 1145 19th St. NW. THE BEST

      Go see Dr Cote in Pentagon City! He’s walking distance from the metro, right across from Pentagon Row. He’s wonderful and so is everyone who works there. (BTW, I am a woman)

  • I went to this guy a couple of times a few years ago and decided not to go back because he was a very arrogant ass. Based on the yelp reviews, lots of people felt the same way.

  • Some Tim Whatley BS right there. This is why there are so many anti-dentites.
