I saw an ad for Aspen Dental free exam and x-rays. I am widowed with minor children at home, no insurance and almost at Federal Poverty level. I developed a slight tooth ache and when checking my teeth at home, discovered a hole in one. I went to aspen and told them all of this.
They told me my credit was approved for $3800 FIRST. Then informed me my treatment would be $3782. They said I needed a root canal, crown, root cleaning and a small cavity filled. They booked appointments for me despite the fact I told them I had to get back to them.
I got home and checked the standard costs in my area and discovered they were very over-priced. Furthermore, I discovered that the root treatment was UNNECESSARY and EXPENSIVE. I called within a half an hour of leaving their office to cancel everything.
My children's dentist checked my teeth. I needed 2 fillings. I did NOT need a root canal, crown or anything else. He fixed my teeth for a total price of $215!
Then I received a call from the credit company Aspen Dental had me apply. Apparently, despite the fact I cancelled all work immediately, Aspen Dental charged my new line of credit the full $3782 even though they said it would take them 3 weeks to complete their work.
What a hassle getting my credit line restored to zero!
NEVER EVER USE THIS COMPANY AS THEY ARE SCAMMERS! THEY DIDN'T CARE THAT I WAS POOR AND WERE GOING TO OVERCHARGE ME FOR UNNECESSARY WORK. I THINK they saw how much my credit was approved for and then went for the full amount. Remember, they didn't give me a price until I applied for credit.
