This is a place to show case the many Horrible Dentist that prey on the citizens of the free world. I know , I know ; you may not care – until it happens TO YOU!
Who Are They?
Yi–Ling Shiao Expert Dental P.C
This “Dentist” has won the honor of being our first Horrible Dentist nominee.
Congrats Yi-Ling , You Go Girl!
Though I will not detail all of her dishonorable behavior (we have to leave some surprises for the dental review board ) I believe we can qualify her by following our guidelines.
In my case, I had moved to a major city from a small town. I had left my usual Dentist (whom I now know to be awesome in hindsight) with the understanding that I had a cavity or two that needed fillings. Sadly, as a post grad trying to find work in a new city, I didn’t know who to turn to when I found myself in need of a root canal.
So, I did the best “research” I could and went to a dentist with “4-5 star reviews” everywhere I looked – Yelp. Dr.Oogle. Google..etc. I now understand those reviews to be fake, and the dental services offered as advertised to be fraudulent ( I was told after she botched the job that the service I came in for was actually not even offered- though the office confirmed that it was over the phone).
I was left with an incomplete root canal, dental “fillings” in which she carved and hollowed out the inside of the tooth (i don’t even believe she took xrays) and left my mouth looking and feeling like mountains and valleys!! Like a sneak, she did not do one cavity at a time but rather ran the drill over all of them , I felt this as I was about to flee for my life but noticed there were holes in my teeth and I could not go.
If I showed you all of the fake reviews that I found we would be here all day , sadly. But here is a tid bit showcasing the deception.

A yelp reviewer, one Wilson L, gave a very pleasant and detailed account of his visit ; before he was shunned to the filtered section.
Went in for a cleaning and to get a couple of cavities filled. Everyone in the office was extremely friendly and helpful from the second I walked in the door. I always felt at ease, the place is clean, and I was treated very well. She addressed my concern by describing a number of options to treat my front tooth. They are very good at explaining exactly how the procedure is going to go, and then executing it perfectly with minimal discomfort/pain. A friendly dental office that has always put me at rest by providing more information than other dentists would! I’ve recommended this office to others
A Google search using the first sentence confirmed my suspicions. Wilson L must have been busy, or loves dentists. So much so that he, or someone who is finely a tuned to his thoughts, copied and pasted his review for another dentist.
This is what I found:
Dr. Lim, Are you using the same management company as Yi-Ling? Hot mess Boo.
Yi-Ling Shiao’s patients are so talented that they also can time travel.
Here is a review by one Kevin who states that he has been going to expert dental for 30 years – with no complaints:
This wouldn’t be bizarre if Expert Dental hadn’t been around only for about 7 years ! and if Yi-Ling was a practicing Dentist out of the womb….
