One of my teeth broke and I looked on line for affordable dentists in Anderson South Carolina. Aspen dental somehow came up at the top of the list.
I was able to get an appointment almost immediately. After getting passed around between four different staff members and having some x-rays and check up I ended up in a room with the "closer". I was handed a list of procedures that totaled over $10,000.00. And was told that this did not include additional root canal fees.
Then I was asked to sign my name 5 times on one paper that did not have much on it but signature lines? My mother and I were then convinced that an initial periodontal treatment would cost $1,400.00 even though this procedure is clearly listed on their website " You can generally expect to pay between $133 and $350 per session". Then we were required to PAY UP FRONT! Having been convinced that this was a needed procedure I accepted this.
This expensive procedure amounted to about 15 minutes of regular scraping and NO CLEANING!! I was left to nap for a while and then given an electric tooth brush and some other products. After returning home I realized that I had trusted an operation which does not seem to be operating legitimately.
Feel taken and will never return or recommend Aspen Dental. Disappointed.
