The following explains itself...Please read and share. This man who is supposed to 'do no harm' by oath is physically abusing children that are referred to his office for dental procedures.

My 4 year old Great Niece "Abbie' had just underwent a procedure at his office and this is what my sister posted following the office visit!

We just got back from Abbie's dental surgery. I want to warn all of you DO NOT TAKE YOUR CHILDREN TO ERROL GUAM!!!! Abbie was sedated, as expected. Calmly allowed me to sit her in the dental chair, didn't cry or fuss at being left with the dentist and his assistant (even after I explained he was taking out a tooth and putting "covers" caps on the others). I was barely sitting in the waiting area when Abbie shrieked and started screaming "that hurt!". I was mortified! I sat and waited, wanting to cry because I had no idea what else to do. I know you can say I woulda done this or that BUT you weren't there so really maybe you would have done the same thing I did, sit there dumbfounded. When I was allowed to get her she was crying hysterically. I was given another appointment (which she won't be attending). I took her to the car she cried virtually all the way home (approx. 1 hr straight) only stopping to take breaths inbetween. Eventually she became so exhausted from crying that she would sleep for two minutes here and there for the remainder of the 2 1/2 hr trip home. After we got home she told me as soon as the dentist went in he stuck a "thing" in her mouth and pulled her tooth out, NO FREEZING. I believe wholeheartedly that he DIDN'T freeze her simply because he didn't have time between me leaving the room and Abbie shrieking, for the freezing to take effect. Abbie told me that the girl 'assistant' held her down while he pulled her tooth. She told me he stuffed "toilet paper" which I can only assume was gauze (and not ACTUAL toilet paper) filling her whole mouth and held it while he yelled at her to be quiet and stop yelling! She told me she couldn't breathe while he did this. His secretary started turning up the volume on all the televisions in the office to cover her screams!!! I have complained to her regular dentist and have made it extremely clear that she WILL NEVER GO BACK TO ERROL GUAM!!!! Protect your children from this "man"!

If we don't protect our children...THEN WHO WILL???

Please help us ensure that this man will NEVER be able to practice dentistry again by sharing any personal experiences you, or anyone you know, have had with him.We did contact the RCMP and they told us that they couldn't do anything. This matter would have to be handled by the Dental Board. 

 Every signature counts and we thank you for your support! PLEASE SHARE THIS WITH EVERYONE YOU KNOW BECAUSE ABBIE AND COUNTLESS OTHER VICTIMS ARE COUNTING ON YOU!

HELP BE THEIR VOICE!!!!!!
