Affordable Dentures, Zanesville, Ohio Complaint - A LIVING NIGHTMARE! - Full Set of Premium Package Dentures - $3000 Jan. 2007
ZANESVILLE, OHIO -- In January of 2007 I went to Affordable Dentures in Zanesville, Ohio to have my teeth extracted and get my first set of dentures.
I paid for the best package and what I got was a nightmare.
I was told they can only extract half your teeth at one time, which is not true. Many places do them all at once, I found out later, but here's what happened.
They extracted my top teeth and sent me home with a prescription of pain medication that I was allergic to, even though I informed them repeatedly about this beforehand. When I tried to contact them in severe pain that Friday as soon as I got home, they didn't get back to me until Monday.
I was scheduled to get my top teeth done on Monday. They called me in the correct pain meds and then rescheduled me for Wednesday due to the 2 inches of snow they got, they were closing. Wednesday they called me and rescheduled me for Friday stating they were playing catch-up due to being closed Monday and Tuesday from the 2 inches of snow.
Friday they finally seen me, but due to the medication in my system, 4 of my front bottom teeth wouldn't numb. I insisted he wait and let me stop the meds for a few days and let me return, so they could be numbed.
The Dentist told me NO, he couldn't stop now!
So he pulled 3 teeth that were not numb while I screamed and cried and fought him and then cut the last one out that was also NOT NUMB!
When I walked out the door, I had blood all over my face, I was shaking in shock, crying and collapsed into my sons arms, who had to physically carry me to the car.
The Doctor was insane, the women working there were witches and the whole atmosphere was a terrible environment.
I had to go back to that horrible place for my fittings as the swelling went down and these people were awful.
They violently force the dentures into your mouth, even an 80 year old man and a woman in her 70's in other rooms moaned and cried while only getting replacement dentures!
These people are heartless and cruel!
I recently received a notice that they have a new Dentist there now.
No doubt the old one lost his license, I hope! BEWARE, the same evil women probably still work there!
I should have sued, but instead I settled for my money back and was given it from their corporate office happily after my story!
BEWARE PLEASE, YOU WILL WAIT, WAIT AND WAIT SOME MORE, THEY WILL BUMP YOU AND BUMP YOU SO THEY CAN MAKE ROOM FOR NEW PATIENT MONEY, THEY WILL TREAT YOU VERY BRUTALLY AND LEAVE YOU WONDERING HOW THEY'RE STILL IN BUSINESS.
DON'T GO THERE UNLESS YOU WANT A CHEAP FIX AND CAN ENDURE THE PAIN AND ABUSE FROM THESE PEOPLE AND END UP WITH DENTURES THAT ARE TERRIBLE AND PLAN ON GOING BACK 50 TIMES UNTIL YOU GIVE UP. THEY DON'T KNOW WHAT THEY'RE DOING!
I FEEL BAD FOR THE NEW DENTIST- HE'S IN FOR A SURPRISE WITH THAT STAFF!!
HE'D DO WELL TO FIRE MOSTLY ALL OF THEM AND HIRE NEW PEOPLE!!!
