Complaint / review text:
I had a HOLE in my tooth, and went to Aspen Dental. I was given X-rays which was part of their FREE part as a NEW patient. After several X-Rays taken, I was put into another room, then the Dentist came in and said it would cost "LOTS" of money to SAVE MY TOOTH! I had no other choice than to pull the tooth because of the expense. The Dentist had problems numbing the area, so the second time he stuck the needle in the TOP of my mouth, I almost left the chair!!! The pain was incredible! Later, he returned and yanked and pulled until my tooth came out. They stuck cotton in my mouth and said NOT to eat, or drink anything or smoke etc.
Later that night, the pain was unbearable so my Husband called the office to report I was in SERIOUS PAIN... They told him to give me 2 Ibuprofen and NOTHING else. Needless to say, I was up all night. Then I called the office myself telling them I couldn't bear the pain NO MORE! I went back to the office, this time seeing a different Dentist, and they did a root canal due to a dry socket. The HOLE in my mouth took 2 weeks to heal. YES, I said HOLE from one tooth! Oh and I had a credit program with them as well... The expense was out of this world!!! Thanks Aspen for now having me scared to death to go back to the Dentist!!!
