I called Aspen Dental for my bi-annual cleaning appointment. The day of the appointment I went in and was supposed to receive antibiotics because I have 2 knee replacements. The dentist told me the ruling changed in 2015 but still gave them to me. 2nd: I had a panoramic x-ray in addition to many bitewings. During all this I asked the xray technician how much all this is going to cost. She did tell me it is free. When I called to make my cleaning appointment the rep told me cleanings start at $91.00. I do not have dental insurance so I was fine with that. I thought ok, x-rays are included. They placed me in a chair and I waited until a foreign dentist came in. He asked me if I have any bleeding and I said no. He poked around and said I do have bleeding along with pyorrhea. I thought hardly as I get me teeth cleaned every 6 months. He told me I had pyorrhea after he tested the depths of my pockets which were all 2 and 3. I don't think he realized I knew what he was testing. The dentist left and a man came in and told me to come to a different room. Ok, I am now going to get my teeth cleaned. No--he took me to a desk and told me the pyorrhea treatment is $662. I flipped. I said what about my teeth cleaning? Well, there is no hygienist on today. Tell me this isn't a racket? How many seniors in Venice Florida have they taken advantage of? How do I know this? I am a retired dental assistant. This is the poorest example of professionalism EVER. Kay Kibbel Venice Florida
