Just read in the news, many stories of patients being ripped off at Aspen Dental. An example, 87 year old went in to get two teeth pulled, there treatment plan was over $7000! After complaining to attorney general, they dropped dwn to 2540 for getting 2 fillings and cleaning. This is just one of many stories from the article.

They are a corporate owned dental office, out for high profit. No insurance, they will sign you up for years of payments through GE or Chase credit. They are trained to be tough salesmen, dentists receive bonuses, office managers get fired if they don't meet sales quotas.

Papers obtained showed an Aspen Dental in Owensoro puling in, one dentist was billing an average of over $5200 a day. One manager in Tennessee quit after feeling guilty, selling an elderly couple overpriced treatments they may not really need at a price of $12,000.
They will lie saying your teeth need pulled when they don't, or yo need fillings when you don't, even about oral cancer.

All if this comes from recent news articles.... stay away from these con artists!
Hope they are shut down, they are crooked scum.

My only dealings with them, I had a really god coupon from the phone book from Aspen Dental for either free or almost free, can't remember now, denture repair. They would not accept the coupon, it wasn't expired, was from the local phone book, paid $100 to get dentures glued together. Reminds me the article says they draw you in with free rays or other free/low cost offers, just to rip you a new one while there. Greed, scams and scum.

I go to Chandler dental. They were pretty good for me. I was in there for a long time but considering it was the first time I'd been to the dentist in almost 6 years and needed a lot of work done, it was kinda expected. I had 2 pulled, 1 crowned, and like 7 fillings. It was almost $4000 BEFORE insurance. My dental insurance sucks balls so I ended up paying $2900 of it.

There was a pbs special in June 2012 outlining deceitful practices and if you google you will see several attorney generals in their states have intervened. So don't know anything about local but evidently there are some problems out there

Westen Dental Group is an amazing dental experience. No pressure, just honest information. The better educated a person is on their options, the better decisions that person will make. There ARE good and honest dentists out there, I promise. I work for three of the best in town. (Bowling Green, Ky.)
