I went to Aspen Dental in Carrollton on Thursday April 5th for a free exam and cobsuktation for implants.The X-ray tech was very nice as well as the staff.
When the dentist spoke to me, he answered all my questions and told me the procedure would take 1 day. He never did a CT scan to find out the integrity of my jaw bone, but assured me where the implants would be placed. I spoke to the office manager who went over the numbers with me. Something felt wrong.
I knew my dental insurance did not cover bone grafting or implants, yet they were quoting me 50% after insurance paid. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining about reduced cost, but knew my insurance wouldn’t cover what they were estimating and I would be stuck with a $3000 bill. I called my private dentist, who is out of network now and his office set me up a consultation. Although he was more, I decided to go with him.
I believe that Aspen wants you to think it will be cheaper than it actually is and once your procedure is complete, you’re stuck with a much higher bill.Be aware and know your benefits before going to Aspen for a consuktation for implants.
