When I had myE-day my bottom denture didn't even fit and it was so uneven. I was having trouble with my new dentures. It has been almost 3 weeks and I still can't talk or eat. Know I am practicing over 8 hours a day. My husband came with me cause they have the dentures cut so close to the teeth. Well they acted like he was crazy. They went and put a soft liner in my dentures and when I got out I noticed the lining of the teeth wasn't straight. The teeth was off. So I called and lady told me to come right back. I went back and no sooner I walked through the door the lady that relines my dentures rolled her eyes up in her head and then you could hear her the dentist and another lady talking so loud about me everyone in Lobby could hear. Igot called back and the lady said the only way this is going to be fixed is to make new and she stated really loud we aren't going to do that at this time. Ok I paid $2,300 what do I do ?

I'd file a complaint with their corporate office. Talking about you when others can hear, in my opinion, is a violation of HIPPA (my spelling is off on that). If there is any warranty, I'd see what your options are with it.

Absolutely ..my husband works for doctor, and I've been to enough doctor to know that you keep your opinions to yourself, patients privacy and just do your job. I'm so sorry for this. My dentist has very small waiting room. They , too made mistake and kept canceling my appointments, so on last cancel, I said ok, and then showed up. I waited in waiting room quietly and they sat right in front of window.. Finally, I said..you know I hear you, right? They shut the window. Other patients laughed so ridiculous. So they want 500 to fix mine. And 2000 to do permanents..which I knew I could not afford from beginning. So I've spent 7000 bucks..and they said ALL had to be paid in full before hand and yet..I have to pay 500 to fix them. Too bad. Dentists is very nice. But, money hungry. ...so to person that had the stupid girl roll eyes...first of all.id say..don't torture yourself wearing them all day. Perhaps the uppers will fit better or lowers...maybe can get by with just one by itself. And this site is so good, because I find more info on here than from dentist...one is that it would be 6-8 months until they do a "realignment". Anyway, they'll take my temporaries...that is all I could afford and get them to fit now that I'm healed...that's what they want 500 for. Well, my mother in law got sick , then died, so of course I've put it on back burner since this came up in December.. So when I can I will get back in touch, I hope we can work this out because I'm in no mood. They told me to wear my dentures right from the beginning all day..I was in so much pain, I ran fevers. So, I didn't wear them all day..I did what my body and the teeth they made me could do. Now there was someone on hear that said they were a denturist. Never heard. They make the dentures. So, you cut out the middle man...the ones that roll their eyes. And she also explained how to know you'll get a good fit, when they take impressions, they should take their finger and move around gum and cheek so there is proper fit. I don't know what this means but with a little work, I'm sure we can find some one that know what they are doing, is kind and not in for the money.

Look on line to who you should report the Dentists too.  Their job is to make dentures that fit decent and not look like a 2 year old did it with play dough. Don't stop until you do find that site.  If you can do it for Dr's you sure can for a Dentist!!!!   Good Luck

I despise Affordable Dentures. It has been 11 months and I never got them to listen to me. They also lied they told me that my permanent dentures were include in the over $3000. That I paid them (which included 19 extractions). Well when I went back in 6 months for my permanents (and hoping that finally I would have bottoms that fit)...well guess what...they said I would have to pay another $870. So needless to say...now I have to wait on income tax money to get my permanent ones. I have not had bottoms the entire 11 months because they would never listen to me.

I have it all recorded and several witnesses even 1 that was in the waiting room. I own a business and apparently they didn't realize that there are good costumers out there that know the person they are talking about. No I haven't reported them yet. Going to talk to my attorney today.

If you talk to a lawyer ask him about a class action lawsuit against them and you can add my name to it female would be.rltanner6@gmail.com. and I believe you wouldn't have no trouble getting many more names

I thought the issues I had with aspen were bad but wow. Bottoms don't fit as well as the uppers and I have to use secure pads with mine. No wonder people hate dentists. They never tell you the entire story.

This is just so sad.  I hope you see it through to make them help you, $2300 is a lot of money and you should at least be comfortable.

I went there for first set, on the second one and still not happy, had to file a claim with the BBB on that dentistry.  Didn't do any good.  But , I raised holy hell with the head receptionist at mine and then called the police.  I told the officer what was going on, he said I could sue them in small claims court. I went home, at the time she offered me a refund, she wanted my unfitting teeth back , needless to say , I got so pissed that I had to walk out and that is when I called the police.  I waited a few days to calm down and called back, told them to let her know that I would accept the refund and went and gave them the dentures back.  It just freaked me out at first, after not having any teeth 8 weeks prior .  Went to a more expensive place, got second set, still do not fit, THEY told me I could pay for relignment, well, back to square one, that cost as much as NEW dentures, hello, u didn't do them correctly in the first place!  Just stuck!!

Same for aspen!!! Do not go to that place!!! They are not "denturists" and can not fit you properly. The only thing I can say nice is that they gave me my money back after re making them! My gums do not show even with no teeth in. I do not have a gummy smile and never have. They made my gums on my denture show a whole lot and didnt even fit my face! Investigate your next guy like you would a car!
