This is copy of an email I sent to Aspen Dental.
my husband went to Aspen Dental to get his dentures because when I called and got a price, I was told a set of dentures was $199.00 to $1, 300.00. The $1, 300.00 sounded reasonable because when I priced them last year at Denture Center their price was $1, 500.00. My husband had gotten his last set there. So if your best set was $1, 300.00 then I thought we would try your company. With our insurance our co-pay should have been less than $500.00.
Then my husband comes home and says the teeth cost $2, 763.00. He told them that was too much so they added coupons to get it down. But our share was $916.00. This is $400 or $500 more than it should have been.
When I called to complain I talked to someone that said they would listen to the phone call because they would want to honor what they had told a customer. I don't have who I talked to because I have a new email provider and lost all my emails. I received an email from her that the customer service supervisor had listened to the call and that I was told the price was for each plate, not the set. But I was told it was for a set of dentures. I asked if I could hear the call and she said she did not know if technology would allow that and I never heard back.
I have called back a couple of other times and requested a price for a set of dentures and was told $199.00 to $1, 400.00. One of the times was on July 13, between 2:00 and 3:00. If you call the toll free number (800)277-3633 and ask for a price for a set of dentures, you will also be told what I was.
I don't know if my phone call was was really listened to because they said the operator said the price was for each plate. But nothing was said about the price being for each plate, because I never would have scheduled an appointment. I would like someone to listen to the call and also hear if it possible.
I would like to have the $400 or so that I was overcharged put back on my flex spending account. This was money I had alloted for my own dental work and medical expenses for the rest of the year.
I fell like this is a scam to get people into your office. Why would people come there when you chage double what someone else does. If I can't get my refund, the $400.00 you have taken from me is buying you a lot more than that in bad publicity. Everyone I know will hear my horror story of dealing with your company. That's if they already haven't.
