Aspen Dental is a Ripoff

aspen dental ocala review

I called Aspen Dental in Ocala, FL and asked how much they would charge for a Crown for my Molar. They told me I would have to come into the office so they could take a look.  They said nothing about charging me anything when they made the appointment.

On 1-10-18, I went to the office at 4910 E Silver Springs Blvd, Ocala, FL 34470. To my shock & surprise, they said I’d have to pay $140 before they could tell me how much a crown would cost, so I paid the $140, hoping their price would be reasonable.

They took an ex-ray and the Dentist then told me it would be $1,700!

I think $1,700 an outrageous sum for a crown and is a total rip-off. The last crown I got in 2010 cost me about $600 which seemed extremely high then.

As you can see, Aspen Dental’s price is by far the highest.

There’s no excuse for them not telling me how much a crown would cost over the phone. The $140 they charged me was totally wasted money and a rip-off. Am filing complaints to the BBB and their corporate office and asking for a refund.

P.S. When I visited the Better Business Bureau’s website I found that the BBB has given Aspen Dental an F rating.  Here’s the link (below) to Aspen Dental’s complaint page at the BBB
