Terrible experience for my daughter. While home from college for the holidays and on limited time we thought we would try the new Aspen Dental office.
All we wanted was a cleaning and a check up. During the exam she was told she had Gingivitis and that to do a cleaning would take two appointments, that were not covered by insurance. She had not been experiencing any symptoms of Gingivitis to that point. When she told them she did not have time for that extensive (non insurance covered) option they refused to do the cleaning that she had come in for.
Making the trip a huge waste of time. She was trying to coordinate her schedule with her mom via text who was shopping nearby. The office manager later told me she was not "paying attention" Her mother then spoke to the staff who insisted that they could not do the cleaning that she requested and had to do the other. What a crock.
We left. My call with the office manager was more of the same. I explained that when I go to the Dr. office for a checkup there maybe stuff I need, but can't do that day, but I still get what I came for.
She tried to equate this cleaning for supposed "gingivitis" as like going to the office with a broken arm and not getting it set. She also tried to explain the problem was that there had been "too many hands" in the process.
Well, I guess it takes a lot of money to pay all those hands and a trumped up diagnosis of gingivitis makes it easier to hide the costs into more expensive work than is really needed. Don't go there.
