WILSONVILLE, OREGON -- I have been a client of Affordable Dentures in Wilsonville, Oregon since March of 2015. I initially went to Affordable Dentures for a reline of my upper dentures, which had been made somewhere else. The dentist and staff was very friendly and listened to my issues. They relined my upper dentures for a very nominal fee and replaced an o ring in my lower implant denture (free of charge). I was told that my upper and lower dentures did not line up properly and that I may have trouble with o rings or housings.
Since that initial visit, I have lost o rings and a housing came out of the lower denture. The office made a new set of dentures in one day. I cannot praise the office dentist and staff enough. They went well above the normal. The dentures look good and I can chew better than I have in years. I would rate them as 10 out of 10 across the board. WELL DONE!!!!!
ATLANTA, GEORGIA -- I went in to the office, picked the premium package @ $1980 for a upper plate with adjustments and reline as necessary for 1 year. I paid in full, they extracted 6 teeth, placed the denture, gave me instructions then rushed me out the door. The denture is the most miserable, horrible denture I have ever had to deal with. It is too big, it falls out, it gags me when trying to put it in. It feels like it is cutting into my nose every time I try to chew or bite.
I call for an appointment to fix it - they are only open Monday - Friday 9AM to 3PM and are 3 weeks out on appointments. I finally got in after 2 months only to have them make an adjustment that did not fix the problem and was told my jaw was shrinking more than they thought it should. Eight months later I've finally managed to get an appointment that works with my schedule. Called to confirm the appointment and was told my appointment was not for another week and they couldn't do anything until then. I explained what date I was told to come in and I wasn't happy with denture or their customer service and was told "we'll tell the doctor in a week."
I don't know what else to do but go back because I can't keep spending nearly $2000 and the time to find a dentist who can actually make a denture and care about the quality of their work or their patients. People beware. Affordable Dentures are not affordable nor do they care about patients. They get your money and are done with you!! They have no clue how to make a denture that actually fits.
BARBOURSVILLE, WEST VIRGINIA -- In May of 2011, I was purchasing new dentures because my older ones kept breaking. I went to Affordable Dentures. I was told about the economy dentures, the custom, and the top of the line, which looked more like real teeth. I was told they were made out of a better material and should last a long time.
I had no problems until a little over a year. One of my front teeth fell out. I super glued it in. It has stayed. Then last night, I was chewing on a soft granola bar. I felt something hard in my mouth but didn't think about it because I've always been able to eat steaks, corn on the cob, etc. I took a drink of my Coke. After that something felt strange. I moved my tongue around and my 2nd tooth in the front on upper plate had fallen out and I had swallowed it.
I paid in 2011 over $1200 for the top of the line dentures which were to be stronger. My mom has been wearing the same dentures for 26 years with no problems. I think Affordable Dentures charges you a significant more amount of money for the top grade but they still aren't very strong. I live in another state now and a dentist is putting in a new tooth in my upper plate. For the price I paid, there should have been a longer warranty time on the supposedly ultra set that shouldn't break. I would definitely go somewhere else if I would need new dentures. I feel I paid for the high quality but got a cheaper set.
MONTGOMERY, ALABAMA -- I am 70 years old and have had false teeth since I was in my 30's. I have never had the trouble with dentures that I am having now. I had a set of full dentures made at Affordable Dentures in Montgomery, AL in February of 2015. I kept telling they did not fit. Finally they made another set and I have had nothing but problems.
My mouth protrudes. They don't meet and I still cannot chew meats and other solids such as hard bread, apples, etc... I have to stick them down every day with Polident and sometimes 2 times a day. My bottom gums stay sore if I don't and they sometime get sore when I do according to what I try to eat. I will never go back to them again and I want another set of teeth but can't afford them.
CHARLOTTE, NORTH CAROLINA -- I had been dealing with my bad, decaying teeth for almost three years. I was always in pain and even though I am only 40, neglect for the past ten years, forced me to consider other options, as I am a single mother of two boys and spending 50,000 dollars on my teeth was just not happening.
I went Affordable Dentures, after doing some research as to the procedure. The entire staff was very polite, caring and pleasant. The dentist that removed all of my 14 teeth, had an excellent bedside manner and put me at ease immediately. I figured I would spend three hours having my teeth extracted, but he had ALL of them pulled in less than TEN MINUTES!!! After receiving my dentures, I FINALLY had my beautiful smile back and have absolutely no regrets. Best 2,500.00 I ever spent!
CORPUS CHRISTI, TEXAS -- They were busy, but kept me apprised of what was going on. Staff was great. Dr. looks like he was from outer space, but made me feel comfortable. Got me the premium set of dentures and they fit nicely. Have had problems with the lowers, not the dentures fault, most people do. He discouraged me from getting lower implants because he said he doesn't like doing them.
A year later and many issues I have decided to get the mini implants, but because he sold his practice and I cannot use my Care Credit card I am having to go to one in Friendswood TX for my lower implants. But really, besides the dentist being a little strange, I love my uppers and hopefully after the implants will love my lowers.
TULSA, OKLAHOMA -- First of all you are rushed in and out like cattle with little input since the staff thinks everything is fine even though you try to tell them different. I was shown the Ultra set that was of considerably better quality than all the other options. So I chose to pay the extra cost for That quality. When I received my dentures they were NOTHING like the sample I had been shown! They are cheap junk!
When I asked about the quality and what I had paid for I was told I got the Ultra, so I asked to see the samples again and was shown ONLY the lower quality sets. They belittle you and act as if you should take what you're given and move along while they take your money. They are a complete RIP OFF!
AUSTIN, TEXAS -- I have seen mixed reviews for Affordable Dentures. I have little to say about them that is bad. It is a franchise and you may have different experiences but overall I think that the quality and value are outstanding! I agree that you should read the information on their website prior to going in, and ask questions if you aren't sure about something. I couldn't have afforded any of this dental work anywhere else but I am kind of thankful for that.
I purchased an economy denture in 2005 and it still looks great. I am having the implants done now that the bottom is ready for the permanent denture and to match it am redoing the top but have no doubt that I could have gotten several years more out of the top one I already have. Dr. ** and his staff are friendly, efficient, and for being a trip to the dentist, it is actually enjoyable going there. Even knowing that this type of office can often have a long waiting period, this office really gets you in and out in a reasonable amount of time. It is a shame that now that I finally found a great dental office, I won't need them anymore. They worked themselves out of a job with me. Thanks!
SOUTH HILL, VIRGINIA -- I just wanted to write a review on my recent experience at the affordable denture office in South Hill Virginia. I am a 49 year old man and for one reason or the other I have always had trouble with my teeth, and I have seen many different dentist in my life. I have had teeth pulled in Chester Va., Richmond Va. Petersburg Va. and even in New Mexico. It is a long story but I have never been able to afford to get the work done that I needed done. And if you are in a similar point in your life I would HIGHLY recommend the office located in South Hill Virginia.
I ended up going there because the office in Chester Va. did not take "care credit" and I'm so glad they didn't. I don't have that much experience with the Chester office only when I called the lady that answered the phone was short with me and told me that they don't take the Care Credit card, which I applied for and was easily approved for for three thousand dollars so that is the way I wanted to pay for my dentures that I knew I needed. I first went to a very reputable dentist in Midlothian Va. They pulled three teeth and it was very expensive, they were good people but way overpriced and pushy.
Anyhow I said all that to say this, when I called the Affordable denture office in South Hill the Receptionist was so nice just on the phone. She told me about how they do things there. It is not like a "typical" practice. Anyway I asked her about cost and if they accepted my credit card. She told me every thing I wanted to know and the hours and what time I needed to be there and the office is a hour drive for me but well worth every mile. I drove there and back! Patience is the key. If you are like me and have been suffering for years one whole day won't be that bad.
So I get called back there and I don't know what to expect really I mean I've never had all my teeth pulled or had dentures or anything but the Dental Hygienist got me in the x ray machine and made me feel very relaxed and comfortable. After that I had to get upper and lower impressions of my mouth so the upper dentures I was getting would line up, again very friendly staff. And then I met The Dentist at the South Hill office Dr. ** the best dentist I have ever been to, and I have seen a lot, (unfortunately) anyway he assured me I would be fine and everything would go good.
Well after that he prescribed me my medicine and they told me to return at 1:30. It was only about ten or so. Like I said patience... so I went to the nearby Walmart and two of the three medications I was given were only 4 bucks each. Total for all meds 15 bucks granted it may be different for you but I can't imagine by much.
So I go back at 1:30 and did not get called back until 4:00. But finally after all those years I had been waiting it was the big moment. And I a 49 year old man don't mind telling you I was scared to say the least, but again the Doctor and his Assistant were very reassuring. And he shot me full of novocaine and waited a few minutes and came back and gave me a little more. And the only pain I felt at all was the needle behind the teeth when he put it in the front. To my amazement very very little pain. Well I didn't keep my eyes open because I was scared.
But people let me tell you what I had to get 11 teeth pulled and it really seemed like by the time they had laid me back, they were setting me up I mean I was and am very impressed with Dr **. I do not write reviews but I had to for this Dr. and my temporary dentures were in and they took the time to get it right and wow I look good! lol But I really do, the dentures have made me smile again. They are awesome.
Thank everyone there at Affordable dentures South Hill Va. office. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions for me but the best thing to do is call them. It is a very sad day when you realize you have messed up and neglected your natural teeth but I'm telling you Dr. ** is THE best dentist ever bar none.
ALBURQUERQUE, NEW MEXICO -- Went there to get dentures because they make it sound so pretty over the phone. Drove 260 miles with the understanding that the dentures would be ready the same day. Dentist advised me to get upper with metal plate. I agreed because he said it would only take ten days to have them ready. After not hearing from them 14 days later, I called to ask how much longer. Woman who answered phone replied very rudely that they will be ready when they're ready.
After two more weeks of waiting, they finally called to make appointment. Was told to be there at 11 am for fitting and they would have them ready by 3 pm. Rented car to drive up there thinking that was going to be the case. Fitting went o.k. was told to return at 3 pm for final product. Took almost 2 hours to be called in. When the dentures were put in my mouth, one side of upper and lower touched but other side didn't. Was told they had to redo bottom plate. Since I live 260 miles away, I could not afford another trip up there, so I demanded a refund.
The people that work in this place really need to take customer service classes so they can learn how to show a little more respect to the customers. They make you feel like they are doing you a favor. They offer cheap dentures, but BEWARE because you get what you pay for.
