dentist teeth office money dentures insurance appointment tooth dental mouth
Went to Aspen Dental for a handful of appointments when I got my new insurance. Never had a cavity, but they tell me I have 4 after a 5 minute "cleaning". Within 3 years, I've had to had 3/4 replaced by another dentist already, including one needing a root canal...

Good luck suing them. They get sued all the time and have more and better lawyers than you can ever afford.

The other day I had an elderly patient that remembered the exact year she had all her silver fillings. All of them are now 55+ year old. You are lucky if the white plastic crap fillings most dentists put in last 1/4 of that time. Please find a new dentist who owns his practice.

Ask him: 1. Do you use rubber dams when you do fillings?" 2. Do you still do silver amalgam fillings? 3.

Do you still do gold inlays and inlays on back teeth?

If the answer is "yes" to all of these, you probably have a good dentist. Corporate clinics like Aspen will say "no" to all three questions.

Just beginning with Aspen Dental. Had teeth removed and have a temporary set of dentures. The issues sofar is not with the work but the billing company (DentalFirst-Comenity Bank). Their billing statements do not have the full account number so you can not set up on- line payments. Have tried to contact their 800 number and was on hold for over an hour before it shut off.

"So far" the issue is not with the work. Just wait, buddy.

There will be plenty of issues. Aspen's billing is chaos, and their dentures are not even third-world quality. Guess you are one of those people who believes TV ads.

Write us back to say how those final dentures worked out. As PT Barnum said, there is a sucker born every minute.

Don't know what CDPHP is. Unfortunately, it sounds like you have crummy insurance that any dentist would lose money treating your children.

You would not want butchers like those that work at A$pen to treat your precious children anyway. Sometimes dental insurance plans are not worth the premiums they cost, especially if they force you to use substandard dentists.

Worst experience I ever had at any dentist clinic. From staff to doctor everyone looked unprofessional. Seems they had a pre-mind setup on what to tell patient so that they can extract money. | Aspen Dental review from New York, New York

Nothing concrete done by hygenist or the doctor. They just try to make patients fool so they can somehow extract money from patients. The words they spoke looked like scripted as everyone was trying to sell you same thing to extract money even if patient knows that there is nothing wrong with their teeth.

Did aspen try to sell you something called Soft Tissue Management 1 or Soft Management 2? This is aspen dental's inside code to charge you for cleanings not needed, $200 electric toothbrush, worthless home products that you could buy at Walmart for $1 all wrapped in one word called soft tissue management.

These terms are used to confuse patients about what they are paying for.

They try to make it seem like your gums are in horrible shape and you must have this. Total Scammers

An 18th century snake oil show and a 21st century Aspen Dental are built on the same business model- bilk the public out of every dollar you can. Only difference is the snake oil peddlers left town quickly, but Aspen sticks around to get more suckers from its TV ads.

Aspen takes advantage of desperate patients in pain to sell them treatment they really don't need. The shame of it is the treatment performed is often done haphazardly, so your teeth are worse off rather than better after the Aspen thieves are finished robbing you.

Unprofessional | Aspen Dental review from Gloversville, New York

The receptionist was clearly having a bad day or felt the need to stereotype me either way I was left feeling completely uncomfortable. She threatened to call the cops accusing me of being aggressive which was not the case. My appointment was supposed to be free and she tried charging me $210 so I tried to explain that i called beforehand and was told it'd be no charge. Rather than sort it out i chose to just leave because it was upsetting being treated that way and beyond uncomfortable. They lack communication and communication skills.

"Free" means free to empty your wallet. No communication skills?

They aren't paid to communicate, they are paid to filch as much money from patient-victims as possible. What a surprise you would have gotten if you had agreed to their overtreatment. Tons of shoddy treatment you did not need, and a huge debt to show for it.

Hope you go to an honest independent dentist next time. Break the corporate chain clinic habit!

You are an idiot because: 1.You were talked into the very bad decision of extracting all your teeth. 2.

You were talked into not doing it the right way, i.e. extracting all the back teeth, letting it heal, taking impressions, and extracting only the front remaining teeth upon insertion. 3. For this very difficult treatment, you chose a third rate crap outfit like Aspen instead of a competent, experienced dentist that could have done the job right.

Aren't you glad you cheaped out now? Put a TV advertisement on promising anything, and millions of suckers will believe it.

Sounds like a dry socket, which is no ones fault. Many chain clinics don't even give the dentists keys to the door or alarm codes, so they could not treat after-hour patient emergencies if they wanted to.

But mostly the dentists know they will find a better job soon, so they really don't want to come to the office after hours.

Good advice is to find a caring and competent independent dentist in private practice. Patients lose when Wall Street hustlers muscle in the dental profession.
