Complaint / review text:
I had problems with an existing filling so I went to Aspen for a second opinion. When the Dr injected the numbing medicine, he didn't wait long before drilling causing pain and sending me through the roof! Instead of removing the existing filling they just drilled out the back of the tooth and put in another filling. After several months and visits I saw their "specialist" to see If I needed a root canal, he said no to just have them pull out both filings in the tooth and put one full filling in. I went ahead with that. After having this filling done I had severe pain. I went back and he said it was too high, so he adjusted it. Still having severe pain they referred me to another dental office for a root canal because they don't do them at Aspen. After seeing another Dr he said my tooth was highly infected and that I did in fact need a root canal. He said the Aspen Dr had the filling sitting on the pulp of my tooth. I had the root canal done and am no longer in any pain! Also at Aspen dental the bathrooms are filthy!
