We went to see Dr. Kevin Givens, at Affordable Dentures, 3782 S 16th Ave, Tucson, AZ 85713 yesterday, January 28, 2011 and were disappointed
We had a short telephone call, in which we were promised a partial plate for $280 and no mention of any additional costs, but when we arrived, there was a $65 fee for x-rays, so we passed on the service
We then tried to have the upper plate repaired, because two teeth had broken off
The dentist explained that the two teeth broke, because of malocclusion, but I stopped him and said, the teeth broke off, because my mother dropped the denture in the sink
Then the dentist started back-peddling and said that he can't repair the denture, without doing the bottom plate, at the same time
I think the state of Arizona should be aware of the practices of this office and reprimand him, but perhaps they know very well what dentists do to old people and they are complacent about it
Dentists should put all charges on their web pages and make it clear that x-rays are a requirement and they are not included in the telephone quote
Old people live on social security and inflation is rising very fast
We don't need bait and switch dentists, gouging old people or refusing to repair broken teeth on a denture, claiming that the damage was done as a result of something that is pure speculation
My mother has Alzheimer's and she doesn't remember when she bought the denture, but it does not need replacement; It needs only a repair, but repairs are not as profitable, so the state allows dentists to railroad old patients into spending money they don't need to spend

States gotta survive somehow. Somehow they figure they are more important than your older Mother?

The Feds are worse at this game.

I have had dentures since age 35. Last year I tried Dr. Givens at Affordable Dentures. After many years and mulitple dentures, Dr Givens was the best. I still have a perfect fit and am able to wear my denture without any goo or adhesive,which I could never do with previous dentures!

Went to see affordable dentures. The dentist was very pleasant but rushed. The staff seemed to care less about anything that was going on. The dental tech was unprofessional and kind of rude. I do need to go back because I need a new denture and this one I can almost afford :(

Dr.Givens was excellent.professonly he was the best...and so friendly! He was able to control the situation with kindness. only complaint was his not so friendly staff.All the girls were stonedfaced ,even when we tried to talk to them directly we got no eye contact or even smiles...Too bad,my friend also needs .dentures.

I'm looking to get my mouth fixed and am in a lot of pain. But I just had a baby and am barely starting to work again. Does anyone know if they do a payment plan?

I had my dentures done at Affordable Dentures, and I had to go back 6 out of 7 days. This was frustrating at first, but Dr. Givens said he wanted to make sure they fit exactly right. My dentures were done within a few days, but when I put them in, and Dr. Givens tested the bite, he said they weren't exact, so he wanted to redo them. When all was said and done, I now have a beautiful smile that fits perfectly, and looks very natural. As annoying as it was to have to keep going for a fitting, I am ecstatic with the results, and have recommended him to all of my friends. He really is professional, and my experience with him was great. There were no additional costs for the extra visits, or for having to redo them to make them exactly right. I do agree about his office staff though, there is a lot to be desired with them. Don't let them deter you from choosing him, he is worth it.

I have been visiting Dr Givens since 2012. He is extremely caring and professional. He simply gives you your options and reasonable pricing. Never tries to sell you unnecessary treatment. Recommend him highly.

I went to Dr. Givens to get dentures. I called made an appointment and talked to front desk girl which was very rude. I'm on a fixed income and made sure the advertised price was 400.00 for dentures and the girl assured me that was all I was going spend. When I got there for the fitting. Dr Givens put the dentures in my mouth and I told him I don't think they fit right he goes on to tell me i need the lining for the denture and that was another 800.00 dollars I told him I didn't have 800.00 he told me to ask a relative or borrow the money, I said NO ,that's not what the ad said , that's why I went there for the price he preceded to show me the door with my dentures without the lining he said not to worry the denture would break anyway. This Dr Givens is a scumbag and want everyone to know they are a bunch of cheats they prey on the elerdy like myself. I ended up going to walgreens and purchasing 2 boxes of denture liners myself for 16.99 and guess what I saved over 783.00 dollars. I would not recommend anyone to these scumbags at affordable dental
