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.

Thank god I’m Reading all these reviews So I don’t waste my money on *** surgery like sono Bello.Thanks to all of you who post the negative results


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.


Your husband sounds like a good man. I hope his time on earth let him have a full life. Down with aspen dental.


Dam that *** looked bad.

Had exam. Went great.

Was told i would given a narrative copy of what needed done. Was too busy of a backlog in their office with billing person who took more time with patients explaining everything than the patients ever spent for their exam. So, Lied to. Also said would contact me, but never called.

Been like 4 months now.

Skilled, but waste of time. Just money-grubbers.

Nothing at aspen dental is great. Look at what happened to this man. Run far away!

Raleigh, North Carolina, United States #1332689

I know this was a long time ago but I hope you got a good settlement from aspen dental. Your husband was a good man and may he rest in peace.

If aspen dental had any human decency at all, they would offer to pay for the upkeep and flowers at his grave site for the rest of your life. All our prayers are with you.

It sounds to me that for what ever reason this individual did no have prescription writing abilities! because it is standard for a dentist, orthodontist etc.

to prescribe anti-biotics for an abscess infection. It is neglectful best bet would be to go to ER.


Perhaps you ppl should try and understand the danger we are all in. Now when I say this you guys will say "BS".

But we as a species are running more and more into superbugs that are resistant to antibiotics.

So more and more medical professionals are NOT giving out antubiotics and allowing your own body to fight off the infection. To you it may not seem fair but allowiing your body to fight off the infection helps to make your immune system stronger.

One of the worst bugs to infect humans and is extremely hard to rid of is called ASPEN DENTAL. Maybe the health care world will find a way to exterminate aspen dental.

to Anonymous #1351967

Probably the wrong thread for pontificating on antibiotic resistance. The guy had a severe bacterial infection. You only know a fraction of what you're talking about.

to Anonymous #1362965

When your teeth become severely infected...Where do you think it goes....straight up to sinus and to the brain. Its not really common but Aspen could make it so...I am sorry did this gentlemen really die?

Also dentist should be very competent about the antibiotics used for teeth Clindamycin first and foremost. I got a z pac which is for upper respiratory from them but had Clinda at home

to Anonymous #1432101

Yeah, but only if the SOURCE of the infection is eliminated- namely the infected pulp of the tooth! The body can't ever get rid of the infection if the source of the infection is still present. Either extract the tooth or start a root canal, THEN the body can heal itself!

Typical for aspen dental.


I know many people who have been to aspen dental and the bad outcomes have left them dealing with bouts of anxiety and depression.

to Danny Stone Mountain, Georgia, United States #1322161

Getting ripped off and having your finances destroyed by aspen dental will cause anxiety and depression.

to Danny Syracuse, New York, United States #1351119

He could have got dental insurance for $2 ( a tooth brush at the dollar store) and avoided this all together. We see this as his problem.
