After reading the previous reviews, I guess my experience withe Affordable Dentures is the same old story. The main reason I went there was because my husband had such a good
experience with the former dentist, Dr. Jose. My husband had a full set of dentures with implants and was delighted with the results. My upper denture would not stay in place from the time I first wore it. When I went back to the lab, they built the denture up of which parts of it have fallen off, still not a good fit. On this return visit, they told me I had a high roof on my mouth and that is why my denture would not stay in place and that I would have to wear paste always. I could not believe that, I had been wearing dentures for years and never ever had to use paste. After several of the female staff repeated all this rubbish, the dentist, Dr. Jim Muir, I believe, came in to tell me there was nothing they could do and I would just have to use the paste. My experience was with the Weeki Wachi office, so I called the head office of the franchise and all they did for me was to refer my complaint back to the Weeki Wachi office.
Someone mentioned in a prior review that Affordable Dentures offered money back with the
return of the faulty denture. I would gladly return my denture for a full refund.
worst service ever – Moving to Tampa and leaving doctors and dentist behind was hard...Asked a coworker about dentist that could help with realighment. She stated her husband went to affordable dentures and liked it. So I called and made an appointment. Must amit when arriving for the first time was treated verly gracefull, so I thought I hit the mother load. after leaving I was very please, even throug I waited an additional 30 minutes to pay, I picked up a broucher thinking I would recommend my sister who also needs adjustements. Before leave was told I could come back between 2 and 4 for my dentures. I arrived at 1:45 thinking 1st come 1st serve. When I arrived there was only 3 other peoplel there. by 2:15 there was an additional 30 people there. at 3:30 went up to talk to the clerk and was inform they call people as the the dentures come out of the lab. Will after complaining I was called next. as going back i realized the clerk was pulling teeth as her friends came in so they were service first. I need an adjustment because the do rub in places but trust me I will be going some place else. I SUGGEST YOU DO NOT USE THIS PLACE...... SERVICE DOES COUNT.....I WILL NOT RECOMMEND
Better to pay more for better service and quality. – I really couldn't recommend this place with any honesty. Yes, if there is no way you can afford anything more then the economy package, then you have no choice. Plan on waiting very long in the waiting room and plan on rushed work and poor service.
i went there to get top dentures, called for an appointment and was told to come in Jan. 24th. I explained to them that I had dentures made earlier and couldn't wear all them time, as they only held with that glue stuff (they were only temps and my gums were healed now) and it made me sick. They said that their dentures didn't need it, as they were made to be held in with suction. so i ordered them . i had the basic stuff done, imprint ect. they told me to wait in the waiting room till they checked to make sure the imprint was ok. Waited about 25 minutes, they told me i could leave. i left there and drove the 40 minute drive home. i was home about 15 minutes and got a call from them, saying i had to come in the next day as the imprint was not any good, I explained that i had waited for the ok to leave, no reasponse. OK went in the next day 40 minutes to and 60 minutes back due to traffic, got another imprint. Went back next day to get the dentures. they felt ok on the first try. took them home and found whenever I talked above a whisper, they would fall out. slept with them in, wore them as much as i could to see if they would start to fit better. they didn't. So about month later (they give you 60 days free adjustments)I called and told them the issue, they said to come in the next thursday at 11 AM. I got there at 11 and was in the waiting room till 2:15 before getting called in. 2 hours and 15 minutes. When I got in there, i was asked how things were and said i really wasn't too thrilled about waiting over 2 hours, No response. I think it was oh. not sorry or anything like that.What did they do to fix them, went out and came back with that glue powder all over them and that was the solution. i was told my pallette wasn't big enough to not be able to use the glue. I never did see a dentist, only some receptionist that kept calling me hon. If they had told me in the first place my palette was too small and i would have to use the glue, i would have just kept using the ones I had. Now I put them in for looks, but have to take them out to talk to anyone or eat, as the glue makes me gag. by the time i got home after she put that glue stuff in, i was almost puking.
what really got me was the 2 plus hour wait and the fact that i could tell her job was to get rid of me without bothering the doctor. they already had my money and had no more use for me. i was in the waiting room for 2 hours 15 minutes, but was in the chair for less then 10. as I should have been told before the purchase that they would not stay in without glue. wqhile i was waiting the 2 hours, A father and daughter next to me, who were in there before me left. I don't know how long they were there before me, but it must have been a while. I also noticed some people who came in after me were called in before, guess they didn't have their money yet. i have no idea how things work there. I do know they don't seem to care about it though.
Buyer beware – I ended up buying a dremel and working on my dentures myself
YOU WILL SPEND MORE MONEY, TIME AND PAIN FOR YOUR DENTURES! COLOR UPGRADE CHARGE, 3 HOUR WAIT EACH VISIT,NO OFFER TO SOFT LINER OR REMAKE FOR DEFFECTIVE PAINFULL DENTURES! – All I heard at Affordable Dentures from the Regional Manager Dentist is you can have your money back, or bear it! So I went to a Specialist and had him put in a soft liner and adjust them where at least I can function and not look like a wounded horse for $265.00 more out of pocket.
When I went back to Affordable Dentures to take the Dentist up on the refund they HAD OFFERED I was told to give the teeth back or pay $410.00 to keep them. When I explained that there was no mention of giving the teeth back origionally as a stipulation of the refund and that I had to put $265.00 more to have another Dentist fix what I had been told by Affordable Dentures was too bad for me..they said that was the way it was. Well, since you have to wait a minimum of 2 - 3 months to have your permmant denture made, what choice is there?
I now have to wait 2 more months to have a permanant denture made and spend more money for each adjustment in the meantime!
Get Credit Care (a financing plan offered through all dentists and get 1 year intrest free financing) ONE STAR MEANS AFFORDABLE DENTURES IS NOT RECOMMEDED!!
I have now spent $710.00 so far for an immediate denture that still is not good and have to wait at least two more months (as I have just had all my teeth pulled and the immediate denture done 3 and a half weeks ago)and then I have to have another dentist make a permanant denture for more money. Live and learn!
If you want to function with minimal discomfort, eat and speak at all... you will have to spend money somewhere else...Do It...don't be duped!
Remember, you have to wear your dentures 12 hours a day, every day! Your car doesn't get nearly the usage as your teeth do! Spend your money wisely, DO NOT GO TO AFFORDABLE DENTURES! Look at all reveiws...you will see that there is something wrong at all their labs because the same complaints are always given. THIS IS NOT A MATTER OF WHICH LOCATION YOU GO TO!!
