I went to Affordable Dentures in Savannah/Pooler GA to have my last ten teeth pulled and get their best "New Denture Wearers Package Ultra". I paid $2153.00 before any work was done. Keep in mind that this was my last ten teeth, so over many many years, I had 18 other...

Yeah..Old Doc Selders is still there with the same rude, uncaring and impersonable attitude he showed the posters here. Rammed a big old needle in my mouth so fast and rudely without one iota of compassion.

Never greeted or said a word, for the most part, even when I tried to be cordial. Then he ripped out a few teeth and I swear it was under 20 seconds. The tool he used I had never seen before and looked like a small rib spreader. I heard some bones, or teeth crunching and I am hoping he didn't leave me with some real discomfort and agony down the road..It remains to be seen as it was only yesterday.

The temp denture seems tight and isn't creating a problem for me as of yet. Although they do seem big and I am choking and gagging on them some, even though I wore a partial for 35 years or more, but they do look nice. But then again the remaining chiclets and partial, I was sporting for years were pretty darn awful and even a toothless mouth with no replacement would likely have been better. Most of the office staff, including Dr Selders could sure use a few lessons in interpersonal skills as they are in a customers service oriented business.

It would probably help their reviews and promote a little more business. Although It seemed as though the doc was a little more friendly to people who weren't old white people as I could hear him interacting with others before me. Maybe he is just a bit racist?

LOL I have to see if I can search that "tool" he used on me. I don't think he could have gotten those teeth any faster with a hammer..

Affordable Dentures - Made Dentures for Me

I went to Affordable Dentures of Tulsa in May of 2012. Dr. Changa Cannon was my dentist. He first took a mold of my gums. Then they made a new upper denture for me. It fit far better than the denture I had which was made by my old dentist, and had never fit quite right. They allowed me to follow up and get adjusted after a few weeks. The staff made me feel at ease and everyone was very professional. I saved $300 from what my last dentist charged, and they accepted my insurance. It was much more convenient, since they had a lab at their location. My old dentist had to send out to a lab elsewhere in the city. I give Affordable Dentures 5 stars for a good job. I definitely will be returning.

My husband is a disabled vet we were at affordable denture twice and still can't get his dentures right. They put them in his mouth tell him thier not right you have to come for a redo.How many time do they get to do it right which they can't.

Very rude people they were laughing at him because he couldn't even talk with them. They told him to wear them as is and couldn't even close his mouth. Very rude to other people in there more concerned when were they going to get to leave. A gal had sat there for 3 hours just asked if they had any clue & receptioist said they don't want to be there either they want to leave as soon as they can and believe they locked the doors right behind you when the last paitent leave.

My husband fought in veitman so they could have freedom and they treat people with so much disrespect this location was in madison on Odana rd. How can you keep coming back once a week just for them not to do it right and laugh cause you a joke to them!!!!!!

Extremely disappointed with Affordable Dentures Tampa office, Fl

Update by user Aug 19, 2012

Its been 2 months since I got my last set of permanent dentures and they are still as bad as the first set they made. I still cannot eat with the teeth, they hurt on the bottoms and I am still having to take them out and put in the temporary set to eat.

I am completely disgusted with the office as the Dentist on my last visit had an \"attitude\" and seemed to not know what else to do, so in other words its my loss because they want to charge for any adjustments that have to be done but I am not wasting anymore money with them. Will have to try another Dentist office when I can afford to have a completely new set of Dentures re-made.

Original review posted by user Jun 18, 2012

I have been going to and fro the Tampa office of Affordable Dentures for 2 yrs. Had teeth extracted and the temperory denture made. I had to make a few trips back and forth as swellings went down for some minor adjustments which I did not mind. Problem started when they said you can finally have the permanent one made, I thought to myself.....at last! I live in Pinellas Park and with gas prices it was not easy to keep going to and fro Tampa so often. The horrors began. Could not eat anything with the teeth and Dentist did not seem to know what to do. I could not understand what was going on because I could even *** ice with the temporary one I had. They tried to make some adjustments......still could not even eat a biscuit, they remade another one....same problem up and down every other week ...still can't eat anything. Spent $3,055.00 total and do not have a denture that I can eat with, I have to take out the permanent one and put in the temporary one to eat and pray to God that it does not break. I will now have to save some money and have it redone at a different Dentist office closer to home.

I had a tooth extraction and mini implants placed by Dr Hackney on 4-7-17. The office was busy but I felt like I was treated other than just a number.

I felt that Dr Hackney listened to me and come up with a game plan moving forward. I felt that the prices were fair and certainly well below what I was quoted at another dentist. The procedure was painless, and I received a follow up call the next day to check on me. I do have more work to come, but I feel like me and Dr Hackney have built a foundation moving forward.

I had a terrible experience with a different dentist before I went to see Dr Hackney. I was treated terribly, the outcome was horrible, and of course I had pre-paid.

I wanted to submit this review of Dr Hackney so others might be able to benefit. They have changed my life and I am able to smile again

THEY ARE RIPOFFS>>>> DO NOT GO TO Affordable dentures, on Florida ave, in Tampa. I have had extractions through the years by Dr.

Hackney who is a wonderful extraction expert. For tooth extraction they are great...

However, they offer 4 different level packages. They sold me the ULTRA package for $2,200... All anybody needs is maybe their middle package for $750?

They are refunding me OVER $1,400 They had me sign paperwork when I was under the influence and in their chair. They had removed my glasses and I signed the paperwork that was shoved in my face....

Affordable is where a technician and dentists start out first with the dental business The ones who stay at affordable never get any better or practice bad customer service no patient satisfaction Oh yeah and no refunds

Affordable Dentures - Charged for consultation with Affodable Dentures and didn't receive it.

Prior to making an important meeting I contacted and went to Affordable Dentures of Conroe, TX for upper plate relining. They charged me a $65.00 consultation fee, I paid thinking I would see a Dentist. After an xray a young lady informed me they couldn't be of any service to me if I didn't buy new dentures today. I explained my situation to her and she left. At this point I still thought I would be seeing the Dentist. The young lady returned and very politely informed me they would not be able to help me. I feel like this was one big rip-off. No one even looked at the dentures and they clearly new what I was there for prior to taking my money.

You should have been examined by the dentist, it is true. But if you got a panoramic x-ray and you paid only $65, you got a great deal. Ask for a copy of this x-ray and take it to a good dentist who doesn't work for a fleabag dental chain.

Great Experience at Affordable Dentures of Sarasota

Dr. Gillam and all of his staff did an excellent job on my new upper dentires. They were friendly, professional and thorough. I had 9 upper teeth painlessly extracted and a new temporary denture installed in just under 2 hours. The pain I was expecting did not last very long and I was off meds except for tylenol after only 2 days. My smile looks great. I was given great instruction about the care of my new denture. I would recommend Affordable Dentures of Sarasota to anyone needing dentures. Anybody who wants to contact me directly can email me at guitman56@aol.com.

Affordable Dentures changes rules for adjustments.

Seems after you pay for the dentures they have no interest in providing the promised services. Got the dentures on Wednesday and realized by Friday that there was no way I could use them without adjustment. Arrived at their office during the time specified to have adjustments made and was told they had changed the times and I was too late and would have to come back another time or make an appointment. The soonest appointment was June 24 and today was May 22, over a month to get the adjstments done on a new set of dentures, (the worst fitting dentures I have had in the past 31 years). f anyone asks me, I would tell them to go to any other facility but not Affordale Dentures in Augusta GA, it's a waste of money and you woul be better off spending more and getting a good product and the service you deserve.

Affordable Dentures - Colorado springs Dr lies!

Dr Choi at this Colorado Springs location has flat out lied to his affordable denture complaint rep. He butchered my implants, and couldn't even put them in straight. Think it was his first time. When I made a complaint with corporate, he lied, saying he told me I was not a canadate for implants. ***! Not what you told me as you took my money, liar. Dentures took weeks, and were the worse set I ever had. Though I was refunded for the poor dentures, I am stuck with crooked implants that will eventually break off. Thanks Choi, you are not worthy of Dr status!

I recently went the dentist and was quoted a price for a light parcial. There is an AFD location within 5 miles of my home, so I was considering calling them.

However, I decided to read the complaints and am so glad I did.

I will be using my regular dentist and will be more than willing to pay the extra cost. Thanks for taking the time to share your stories.

As you will notice people who post on this site are not able to communicate directly with each other.It is set up that way for a reason. Iam in the process of starting a class action against this company with the help of my family member who is an attorney.Start by gettinga copy of your medical records and report your treatment to the dental board in your state.Then go to the attorney general's office.
