January 2, 2018 I had an appointment for a crown. I went there and they didn't have time to do the prep, although they demanded payment in advance, which I questioned, but paid.

So they rescheduled the appointment for 1-4-17 for 4:30 PM. I showed up at 4:39 (weather was bad-snowing). At 5:20 they let me know that they couldn't see me and I would have to reschedule because I was 9 minutes late. I asked why I wasn't told this at the time I arrived (no answer).

So the following week I went for Crown prep. It was apparent that the assistant did not know what she was doing and made 3 temporary crowns. It cracked the same day. I went back in for another.

That one also cracked the same day. Then I went in again and the same thing happened. I have not been able to chew for 10 days while I am waiting for the permanent crown. I refused to have another incompetent employee put another temporary one in that I was certain would break again.

I would have cancelled the entire procedure, however, I have already paid in advance. I am set to get the permanent crown today 2-1-2018.

I have no confidence that it will be professionally installed or will last. In addition, I have wasted many hours driving and loss work time dealing with this nightmare and no one has offered anything for my time, loss of work, inconvenience, inability to chew for a month.

A$pen LOVES to lock patients in treatment by making them pay for everything up front. Unlike every honest dentist I have ever met who will not bill until the final impression is taken.

Try to get a refund and it will takes months and probably a lawsuit as well.

Many times regular dentists make temporaries themselves instead of delegating the task to an assistant. Guess what? If you go for long without a temporary, the tooth, the teeth beside it, and the tooth above it will move in the arch, messing things up.

Hope your new A$pen made-in-China crown is satisfactory. Some are; many aren't.

It won't be custom stained like most of mine are.

Find an honest independent dentist ASAP. Good luck

Always best to see a dentist in private practice rather than go to a dental mill like Aspen.

Avoid Aspen. They are the worst and unapologetic about it.

You’ll never see the same people year over year.

Different assistant, Dentists always. Poor materials used in crowns
