Original review posted by user Nov 01, 2014

My husband called me on his lunch break and asked me to make him an appointment to have a tooth pulled. I called and he had his tooth pulled @ 3:00 on Thursday October 30, 2014. The doctor told him that since the tooth was the source of infection he would not need any antibiotics and was only given Norco for pain.

Needless to say when he woke up Friday October 31, 2014 for work his entire left side of his face all the way down his jawline and into his neck is swollen 3 times as it was when he laid down for bed.

I called Aspen at 1:00 pm Friday the 31st and seriously had to plead with the dentist to please fax some type of antibiotic to our pharmacy. I explained to him that my husband's face and neck was severely swollen and the pain he is having is beyond that of your typical extraction.

He insisted that this swelling is normal and that he didn't need antibiotics because the tooth was gone. After a few more minutes of explaining his symptoms they finally agreed to fax the prescription for him. I gave them the name of the pharmacy as well as the phone number. Thanked them and hung up.

Well several hours later, I called my pharmacy to find that they never sent anything for my husband...

Who as of right now cannot move his neck and has a temperature and feels weak and faint...

I am so angry and I would like some advice as to what I should do from here...I called the emergency line 4 times and was hung up on at least one time on purpose, put on hold and the call was disconnected once. And am currently waiting for a call back from a Doctor supposedly within a 20 min time frame, I'm not going to hold my breath though.

Product or Service Mentioned: Aspen Dental Tooth Extraction.

oh man if I knew this crap I would never had gone to Aspen hill dental aka all about the money. I went in to get a tooth pulled nothing mire nothing less.

the pain I had was horrible. the dentist said I need to get a cleaning first then get my tooth pull that was 125 bucks with insurance, mind you my tooth is beating like a damn heart beat. the cold water killed me with sensitivity omg. and she did a sucky damn job at cleaning waste of money.

I was in the waiting room waiting to get my tooth pulled after this just for them to say I have to pay 250 to see the surgeon. ummmm this is not a surgical matter its a extraction only.

only about money wasted 125 bucks and 3hours of my damn time. worth office needs to be closed down asap.

Idiot! Extracting a tooth IS surgery!

You refuse to take care of your teeth, have them pulled one by one, and will one day be toothless. Then you will complain that you can't wear dentures because they *** you. Nobody wants patients like you.

Nobody! Moral of the story: have your teeth fixed by an honest dentist so you don't have any more toothaches.

There are two types of extractions, the simple and the surgical extraction. Simple extraction – is done on a tooth that can easily be seen in the mouth.

A general dentist does this very easily with the use of an instrument called an elevator. Once the tooth is made loose, a pair of forceps is used to extract the tooth from its socket. Surgical Extraction – This is a more complicated procedure, which occurs in case a tooth has broken off at the gum level.

In this procedure a cut is made into the gum, which sometimes is required to partially cut the bone around the affected tooth. In other instances, the tooth is split into two halves to extract it.

Which proves???? Then there is the soft tissue impaction, then there is the partial boney impaction, then there is the full boney impaction. As a general dentist, I have done all of them since my training as a dentist in the Army.

Aspen dental does not give a flapp about what happens to people. To understand why Aspen dental is successful just talk to an employee of aspen.

If you work there, you will hear management openly laughing about how dumb they consider Nascar fans to be. Why do they plaster the aspen advertisement all over Nascar cars? Aspen will openly tell you that they consider nascar fans perfect suckers. Most nascar fans haven't been to the dentist in a long time and usually have some sort of income that will allow aspen to open a credit card for them.

A perfect setup for aspen dental. They get to run up a huge list of treatment mostly not needed then talk the nascar fan into a huge credit card bill. All the while aspen dental is smiling and acting like they actually want to help.

The only reason you pull a trick like that is you consider the other person too dumb to figure it out. So all you nascar fans out there know than aspen dental considers you DUMB SUCKERS and openly laughs at you.

Disastrous. Young new dentist was determined to sell us dentures.

We told him we already had that arranged. We needed a simple tooth extraction done that day because the tooth chipped and was cutting the inside of my husband's mouth. He wasted 3 hours of our time , refused to extract the tooth, sanded the tough edges off.

This cost $125. Never again with that rotten company and dentist.

What happened is the recent young graduate was afraid of tackling a big molar extraction on a guy, but still wanted to earn a commission doing something. No desperate patient goes uncharged for anything at this dental clinic chain.

Charging people is what they are good at. Actually helping people is the last thing they get right.
