I was attracted by the free x-rays and exam. I should have known better, nothing in business is free. After the exam, I was told I had an advanced stage of periodontal disease and my only option was to have all of my teeth extracted and replace them with dentures. I question the credentials and professionalism of the "dentist."
I have had problems with my gums before and I knew I had some periodontal problems, but not as bad as what they described. I was told horrifying stories of what would happen if I didn't have the surgery and dentures. I am ashamed to say that I fell for it and I opted to have the work done to the tune of $11,500. They were more than happy to finance the work. Again, I'm ashamed to say I went for it.
It is now two weeks after the surgery, my mouth is cut up and nicked inside because the poor fitting dentures. My mouth is so sore I cannot eat food and I have lost over 11 pounds. I am already too skinny so it is not a good thing. After the first few days I tried to see the "dentist" and technician but was told there were no times available. I have continued to try to see them but I keep getting put off. I even went to the office and waited for over 2 hours. They would not see me.
Please, learn from my mistake. Investigate before you commit and above all, avoid Aspen Dental.
Monetary Loss: $11.
