Bad company to work for.
Posted by Bradash78 on 09/26/2012
MADISON, WISCONSIN -- I worked at Affordable Dentures located in Madison WI for 2.5 weeks, and after working 8 years in the Dental field I've never worked with a company that treated their patients and employees with such disrespect and rudeness. They had patients in and out of the Dental Chair in 2 minutes, it was like an assemble line, only to keep them waiting for hours for crappy dentures that were poorly made, and if for any reason a patients had a complaint or a problem about the fit of the denture the assistant was VERY rude to patients. From my experience I think its just a rip off they are all about money, there's no good customer service skills at all. Patients complain all the time!! Be warned!

This place is full of lies, very unsafe to receive treatment there. the Dr doesn't do much of anything. he has his assistance do it all for him while he lays on the couch in the breakroom, or he goes in the back lab to gossip about the patient. he kick the can and cussed me out because of the other assistant not being there. he has taken instruments out before they have been fully sanitize and he has he been on patients. many of the patients there could have contracted some type of infection or disease because of it. I was overworked and underpaid. he talks with the regional manager about all the other dentist and dental assistant. telling all of their personal business. that regional manager is a backstabber as well. she asked me to spy on everyone there including the dentist. don't trust the doctor or the regional manager at all. they also like to go on meeting during lunch to get smashed. if you ask me they need to fire the regional manager as well as the doctor.

Here's The Rub About "Affordable Dentures"
Posted by TheCanadianDenturist on 10/24/2008
I have been periodically checking into this forum to see what sort of feedback people are relaying about the concept of one-day "affordable" dentures, and the service they receive from such a practice.
From what I have read, it's not at all good.

First of all let me tell you about what qualifies me as one who can advise about said topic.
I am a registered denturist in Canada, and have been authorized to do so by the College of Denturists in my province.

I have been in private practice for just over fifteen years, and I have other members of my immediate family in this same trade.

Here in Canada, and in some American states Denturists are a "direct to the public" resource for people who need our services.

We specialize in the fabricating and maintenance of denture prosthesis for the general public.
In other words, no dentist referral is needed.

You can walk in right off the street into a denturist practice/lab and have one made from start to finish with additional adjustments included after the service. You work with the builder of your new dentures directly.

In most Dentist's offices, if a Dentist is to make you a set of dentures, he would have to take the impressions and send them to a dental lab who in turn would have to make the dentures without seeing the person who was to wear them. Not very personalized an experience is it? You can see how making dentures in this way leads to a LOT of issues.

Don't get me wrong, there are a LOT of really fantastic dentists out there who are very skilled and well trained at what they do. However the art of making a set of "good" dentures requires a SEPARATE set of technical knowledge from that of the Dentist.
A dentist is still a VERY important part of your denture treatment, the extraction of any teeth and the care and management of your remaining teeth/supporting tissues still require the skill of a good dentist.
Here in Canada Denturists consider your treatment a "team effort" involving our skills and the Dentist's.

When making a personalized set of dentures, there are NO shortcuts. Proper construction means taking the time to do it right in every step.
INCLUDING the processing of the denture itself.
A proper curing time for a heat cured denture is approximately 4 to 9 hours. From what I have read, these "quickie" labs use what is called a Pour n' cure type resin. It's a cheaper, softer, more porous resin which is weaker and isn't nearly as good as the heat cure resin.

Furthermore, the most important part of your treatment is the period AFTER you get your dentures. Adjustments are always needed, and in most denturist practices are included in your treatment.

Just remember that you really do get what you pay for. There are no "quick" fixes, and there are no shortcuts.

Worst Teeth Ever
Posted by Max92311 on 11/26/2011
MILWAUKEE, WISCONSIN -- I went to the office in Milwaukee. I have been wearing dentures for 45 years so I know when the fit isn't right. They would not listen to me, the patient and these teeth were like wearing razor blades. The dentist was rude. I got my money refunded and ran out of that office. Pain doesn't begin to describe it. However, I decided to fly to Georgia to visit with my sister and go to the Macon, GA office for some dentures. The people were polite, friendly, and knew what they were doing. The upper denture fit the very day I left the office and the bottom denture is coming along. The difference is like day and night. Thank goodness to find a place to make a good set of dentures. In my view, the Milwaukee office should be closed.

You might want to report this to the State via both http://www.dhs.wisconsin.gov/guide/spec/probmddds.htm

I'm sorry to hear the OP wasn't happy with their dentures but why should they report it? They were given a refund and were able to go elsewhere.
Posted by Alain on 2011-11-27:
The pain was unusually bad and the fit was not right, April. The reason it gets reported is because that indicates substandard dental work.
Posted by Kimberly on 2012-07-26:
We also had an experience in the Milwaukee office where the dentures were too big I think its because they took the impression off the healing dentures not his mouth (then denied it) the technician said she filed too much off so suction was lost. Much to my surprise, the denist said it was the best he could do and gave back the money for the top denture and said we should go somewhere else.
Posted by Aramay on 2014-01-02:
I also had the misfortune of being in the Milwaukee office. The initial impressions were fine, and the bite was correct. However, when I came back (3day wait for top tier denture) for the finished denture it was either severely damaged or someone else's upper plate. The overbite was so bad it covered my lower lip. After another 2 day wait , the final product didnt fit at all. Kept falling out and there were weird ridges on the palate like folds. They told me to try them for a week and come back. I could not bite on the front because the back would fall, If I bit on either side, the opposite side would fall, if I drank any liquid, the whole upper plate fell down. Not at all workable. I went back in a week and they said would put in a liner for an additional $140. Why should I pay more when they didnt fit to start with!! Then the dr came in and started screaming that he had my lab work ??? (never had any labs done) and I was in such poor health that he wasnt going to fix the teeth. He told the technician to take my plate and give me a refund. I am in good health with no dental problems or abnormalities and told him I wanted to see this mysterious lab report. He ignored me and stomped off. As I was leaving, I heard him screaming at another patient that his implants were failing because he must be in really bad health! Seems to be a cop out for shoddy dental work. Avoid this place like the plague!!

There are still some good doctors around
Posted by Positiveforce on 06/11/2011
CARTERSVILLE, GEORGIA -- I am writing to compliment dr. Adedyin and her wonderful staff of the Affordable Dentures in cartersville, Ga. I have read so much reviews about Affordable Dentures that I was skeptical about going there but my boss (the mayor in my city0 said he had a good experience so I decided to try. He told me to request the lady doctor. I did have to get there at 7:30 am and there was a lot of people there, so you must be patient. The lady at the front, was exceptionally nice, I was nervous, so I had lots of questions and she did not get mad. when I was called back, xray was taken and this young black girl came in, ( I thought she must have just been out of high school) but she is the DOCTOR! she was VERY sweet, and patient, she advised me not to pull all my bottom teeth but to get a partial. when I came back after lunch, she numb me and pulled my teeth- I didn't even know she had pulled them all. My dentist always sent me to a surgeon because he says my teeth are hard to numb and have to pull. I can't believe this small lady got the teeth pout in about 10 mins, all 22 teeth! she was so gentle and talking to me to calm me down throuh out. then my temp denture was placed- looked really good. I was crying and my wife cried to. this was such a good experience for my family. I start a new job in 2 weeks and my self confidence is back. her staff even called me the next day to check on me. no doctor or dentist has ever done that before. try the cartersville office and if you are lucky to see dr adedyin, I'm sure you will not regret it- I didn't

Stay Away!
Posted by Not Content on 02/12/2009
LAKELAN, FLORIDA -- I went to Affordable Dentures in Lakeland, Florida and have been very dissatisfied with them. I had to have an upper denture made after 7 extractions. The fit has never been proper on the immediate denture and even after adjustments have never been right. I know the gums heal and change but still never had a good fit with soft or hard relines. Then I went for my final permanent denture. The first wax try-in made me look like a horse. The second one did not have a good bite. The third one had teeth sawed in a straight line across and totally unacceptable and the bite still wrong. None of them EVER had a good midline either. I told the dentist they looked like crap. Well, he was insulted and refused to finish my permanent denture and made me go to the Tampa office. I'm a tough cookie, but this dentist was extremely rude and impatient and never took time to do things right and to my satisfaction and had me in tears several times. The trip to the Tampa office was quite a distance, but I finally have an upper denture that fits and looks good!

I wrote to Affordabe Denture headquarters and nobody ever contacted me. I would never, ever recommend anyone to go to this Lakeland office!

I had my last 6 teeth removed last Friday. The dentist I went to wanted to fit me with immediate dentures but I told her "No" because I found out that HER office uses "Affordable Dentures" too & as the "Middleman" she charges an extra $400. I was told by "A. D." that for an extra $100 they'll give me "Glamour white" teeth & for an additional $100 I can bring in a picture of the kind of look I want my teeth to have. Still $200 less than my dentist's office. After reading these reviews- I find that if I do go to them- it would be best if I'm the first one there, have my cell phone with the # to the local sheriff's dept. handy & that I bring a small tape recorder or video camera so anything said by either of us (doctor or me) that may be considered mean, condesending or rude can be taken to small claims court later.(if need be) But a friend of my hubby went to the Lakeland, FL one & because he opted for the most expensive set & WAITED TWO WHOLE MONTHS before being fitted for their "temporary denture". He says he's had no problems at all.

Good Idea Gone Bad
Posted by Archie7 on 01/25/2009
WACO, TEXAS -- There is no such thing as one day dental service. You have two different dentists here who compare and redo what the other did wrong. So, two long trips, in the beginning.

The adjustments to the dentures are another nightmare. You will meet a lady who has no idea what you're talking about and GOUGES your denture a half inch away from where you were pointing. She needs to be a door greeter...keep tools away from her! BEWARE! Do not let her touch your new dentures at all!

This clinic is happy to get your money, and turn out the product. They expect you to be happy with it and just go away...even if you have concerns. Go back and let them GOUGE your new dentures. I'm not a happy camper.

Dr. P. is a good Gouger, too, as he flat topped my upper denture when it only needed to be smoothed a little. He also said not to worry about the "dimple" on the outside of my upper denture, where SHE filed off the excess acrylic blob they left on it. How nice. It's very visible.

People in business, especially this type of business, should be more caring and professional! If you get dentures here, YOU SHOULD GO ELSEWHERE FOR ADJUSTMENTS. They have no clue on how to do adjustments. Keep that in mind.

Dissatisfaction With Dentures
Posted by JUNE31523 on 07/24/2007
COLUMBUS, GEORGIA -- Do not use this company. They take advantage of the elderly. If the dentures don't fit they only make one attempt to make them right then make you sign saying you won't continue to get them to fix your dentures. My mothers dentures were not even hers. They looked like bugs bunny's teeth. She said that she tried to tell them that these were not her teeth when they put them in her mouth and was told to pretty much shut her mouth. They humiliated her and made her cry. This was in 2005, she still cannot wear these teeth, that are made out of bubble gum plastic.

What ever you do, stay away from them!!!!!

Be a good son and take your mom to a good dentist and pay for some quality dentures.
Posted by Skye on 2007-07-24:
Maybe you could look into a Dental School in your area that would be willing to make new dentures for your mother. Sad that she needs to suffer like that. Just wondering, where were you when they were treating her that way, and making her cry?? Hopefully where ever she ends up going for new dentures, you will go with her, so that nobody can take advantage of her.
Posted by zacman on 2008-07-18:
Sounds as though your mother needs to return and speak to the new dentist now in Columbus Affordable Dentures. I know for a fact that the new doctor is wonderful and will make his patients happy! My experience was nothing but great and I know everyone esle i speak with agree with me too. Dr Reid is wonderful!!!

Ripped Off By Affordable Dentures West Palm
Posted by Ripped.Off on 06/17/2009
WEST PALM BEACH, FLORIDA -- Went in for consult and exam. Was talked into purchasing the New Denture Wearers Package. This consisted of a full set of temporary dentures and several months later fitting and dispensing of permanent dentures.

The Temporary dentures never fit, despite having to go back to the office and wait for hours to be seen and refitted, only to return and receive dentures that did not fit any better at all, after the time and aggravation of returning for adjustments.

After only a week or so of trying to wear the temps, I decided to just wait a few months for the fitting of the permanent dentures.

Upon returning six months later, as advised, I was fitted, if you can call it that, and had to wait several days for the supposedly 'premium' dentures to be made.

Then, you are called to come in for a final set of impressions and fitting.

Upon insertion of the full set of dentures, I immediately noted and stated that the dentures did not fit well, and looked terrible.

I was told to wait a wek and come back in for yet more adjustments.

And, BTW, I paid these crooks up front...about 1400 dollars...they have my cash, and I have absolutely nothing of any value to me...the dentures they fitted and sent me home with are terrible in both fit and looks.

When you complain, they give you a lot of BS, and in addition one particular dental tech, I don't know if she is even licensed, is absolutely a lying, obnoxious young lady. Very obnoxious and not helpful at all. And totally unprofessional, as is most of the staff at this business. They are in it just to make money off of people with no regard for the finished product, a very poor quality medical dental device which they are very bad at fitting and creating.

I am going to go back and ask for a refund, and if they do not comply, I intend to report the dentist and this business to the State Dental Board / Board of Health, the State Attorney Generals Office and the BBB.

Stay away from this place. They are dis-honest, unprofessional and a total rip-off.

Ok, let's take a step back...NEVER accept temporary anything while waiting over 6 months for your regular dentures. It doesn't take that long. This is a hustle or scam plain and simple and I'm sorry you fell for it. I would suggest filing a complaint, checking to see if they have the appropriate credentials, sounds like they aren't even licensed...but just a guess...and I hope you have insurance so you can get the proper dental care.
Posted by BokiBean on 2009-06-17:
Since I took 2 patients with HIV to have full dentures fitted I learned a little along the way.

Usually patients who require tooth removal prior to getting dentures get temporary plates for about a year or so, due to gum swelling and shrinkage over the course of several months. Then they are fitted for their permanent dentures.

The temp dentures can be fitted and worn the day the teeth are pulled even and in fact both patients that I took wore them home!

So, while its not a scam, you need to let them fit and adjust your new teeth to your face and mouth. They can file them and correct them to fit better. Don't just give up. Let these people finish their job.
Posted by MSCANTBEWRONG on 2009-06-17:
There can be additional circumstances however both my parents had their teeth pulled and were fitted for dentures prior to leaving the dentist's office. They had to go back a week later to make sure the dentures were fitted correctly but had their properly fitted dentures by week 2. I've had several friends follow the same process. Not doubting you in anyway Boki, but in my experience I've seen many folks taken care of in a couple of weeks...not months or years. Again, circumstances can definitely play a big role in the process.
Posted by BokiBean on 2009-06-17:
Affordable Dentures offers 3 different kinds of dentures..they use an immediate economy model when they extract the teeth and from there, patients have upgrade options.

They can do dentures in a day. Its when you upgrade that the time factor comes into play.

The way it was explained to me was that you want to let the tissues in your mouth settle before getting fitted for the upgraded versions, as they are more expensive.

From their website:

When you have had extractions, remember that the healing process takes time…often at least six months, and sometimes more. Each person’s physical health and oral conditions are unique, and the healing process will vary from patient to patient.

The New Denture Wearer Package is available for first time denture wearers and offers a significant savings to patients who have had extractions and require an immediate denture. For one package payment you will receive an immediate denture, a final denture and all the other services needed to help you adjust to wearing dentures for the first time. Our staff will be glad to explain the details of the package and the related savings that you will enjoy.

---

I just don't want to give the impression that this OP is being scammed. I am hoping, that for her/him, its just a matter of some fine tuning to make them happier with their new teeth.

Posted by BokiBean on 2009-06-17:
MS, I'll tell you something too, my mama has taken beautiful care of her teeth, thank gawd..but both of her parents suffered from the pain and the shame of bad teeth and I just wish I could go back and get them fixed.

They've been dead for years, but it just bothers me even now. I'm glad your parents are taking care of themselves!

don't know much about dentures myself but.... i do know that sometimes it's best to get some word-of-mouth about a dentist ... especially for important stuff like that.


my parents moved to a new city and found a new dentist and ... hated him.

they talked to a few others and found out about another one who had a good reputation. they went to him and ended up having some of the best dental care they've ever had



well... it was a long time ago now... i must have been 17 or 18 I think, so almost 20 years.

i just remember getting sick a lot the first day because of the general anesthesia. and i was being light with the pain pills because i read on the bottle that they could be habit forming. (ended up giving the leftovers back to the pharmacist even)

i did finish the pizza tho... i just had to nibble it to death :)

Oh, did you only have a tooth or so pulled? When I had ONE pulled I was a big wuss. I ate ice cream. My Mom was DA MAN> When I got a tongue ring I ate ice for 2 days before I could eat anything.

No complaints
Posted by Seefron62 on 03/05/2012
CHESTER, VIRGINIA -- On February 15th I had thirty teeth pulled and an immediate denture placed. I researched Affordable Dentures thoroughly before taking them my business. The Chester, VA office has an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureu and no complaints within the past year.
I was very anxous and fearful - thirty is a lot of teeth. I made a lot of phone calls to the office and every time my questions were adressed with patience.

The dentists treated me respectfully. They had gentle hands, my extractions were painless after all the lidocaine took effect. The injections were painful - they are injections after all. But the fear that pulling my teeth was going to be awful was quickly put aside.

My mouth was filled with cotton and I was immediately fit with a temporary full set of dentures. I was prescribed appropriate pain control and a prophylactic antibiotic.

I consider my course so far as better than expected. No dry socket, pain controlled, no infection. I use adhesive on my dentures as instructed and am slowly learning to speak more clearly and eat soft foods. My dentures look just like the teeth I lost and I am going in for my first adjustment on the 21st day after the extractions. The office was clean and the staff wore appropriate gloves and masks. They washed their hands upon entering my area and cleaned up soil with the proper solution. Cleanliness and infection control are key to my returning for care. I've been an RN for 27 years.

Up to this point I don't have any complaints. Nor do I expect any based on my previous experience.

Dr Iris At Affordable Dentures, Columbus Ohio
Posted by Freddunkle on 07/13/2010
COLUMBUS, OHIO -- Ok, first off I was TERRIFIED to visit affordable dentures based on some of the reviews I read on here. This is the main reason I am posting this. I need to have several teeth pulled and dentures placed. I went to a couple other dentists, one said I would need bone work first, the other said I could get the dentures without an issue, but charged WAY TOO MUCH. so I tried affordable dentures. I read reviews on here of the old dentist at this location and almost decided not to even give it a shot. Well, I'm glad I decided to go!! Dr Iris was great. not only was she very understanding of me being a big chicken, but she RELAXED ME!! can you believe that, relaxed at the dentist??? Well, I will admit its an all day process, but you do not need to be in the office all day. I started out at 745, was seen by 810ish, and was out of the office before 9. I did have to come back at noon. took the medication I was given when I got there at noon, was seen by 130, and was on my way home, with new dentures, by 3ish. Dr Iris was very gentle, yet firm. she really made me feel like she was concerned more about my being nervous then she was about my money. I am praising her a bit I know, but this is more for the people that are researching affordable dentures to decide if they should give them a try. I won't say my visit was PLEASANT, I am a chicken, but it was no where near the nightmare I expected!! I do recommend going to Dr Iris. As far as affordable dentures, so far I have no problems other then the initial discomfort getting used to them. And yes, you will notice that they push out your top gum a bit, but it is not as bad as people make it sound on here. NONE of my friends have noticed it at all, only I have. OHHH I also noticed a complaint about the receptionist. well, I personally think she is great.

She not only talked to me in detail about what to expect the night before, but she too was very understanding about me being scared to come in. Over all, I would rate my experience an 8. ok, might be more, but I'm not giving a 10 to ANYONE that pulled all my teeth until I can eat steak again!! LOL
Basically, give them a chance people.

Excellent review. It was nice of you to share your experience and even have a sense of humor about it. I'm sure you'll be eating steak in no time!
