Aspen Dental
My family and I have been going to this Aspen for the last couple of years. Even since our first experience with the receptionist and front desk personnel, we weren't impressed with the friendliness or even the professionalism. I do appreciate that every time we've gone the hygienists have been authentically nice, friendly, thorough, and knowledgeable. They're great. The dentist we saw was pleasant, perhaps superficially, but affable nonetheless. Visits leave my family with a figurative bad taste in our mouths because of the poor interaction with the receptionist and the impression that Aspen repeatedly tries to up-sale us on services and charge for services that we neither request nor receive. Beware that meeting with the sales manager entails of, mostly, a sales pitch reminiscent of a car dealership salesman. Those meetings left us feeling yucky. In fact, my family faithfully and regularly used to attend our 6 month dental appointments but have trailed off in these last couple years because this location is our provider and unsavory.Here's how my visit on August 23, 2013 went:Walked in behind another client. I waited patiently behind him as he signed in on the clipboard placed on the front desk where the receptionist, Amy, was sitting. As the man in front of me finished, and I began to sign in, I noticed she made no effort to break eye contact with the computer monitor in front of her or even mutter any sort of greeting or acknowledgement that we were there and standing directly in front of her. I had a seat and waited a few minutes before she called my name and had me walk up to the desk. She flatly stated that I owed a balance of $37 for a fluoride treatment while implying she wanted payment immediately. Caught off guard, I tried calling my mom to see if she could've been possibly referring to a previous visit or if fluoride was even desirable. Unable to reach mom, I concluded that Amy was referring to a charge for the current day's visit. I decided against the fluoride treatment and informed Amy. I was soon called back. My sister, who was there with me, walked up to the desk to confirm that I would not be receiving the treatment, that nothing was owed from a previous visit, and that I did not incur a charge. Snidely, Amy told her that it was noted in my chart. A few days ago, I received a bill for the same fluoride treatment I declined. The phone conversation, again with Amy, was unpleasant and she seemed to not believe that I was unjustly charged until she got my file and saw for herself. It was condescending.I wish they understood that the experience at the front desk makes the first and last impressions, and their impressions are poor. That being said, we won't be returning this location or going to any other Aspen Dental because of the business model. Bottom line: they seem very oriented towards getting money out of patients. Not recommended.

This place had some bad reviews 3-4 years ago, but they seem to have turned things around. The staff was very friendly and the debit was great. Billing seemed to be straightened out as well. Just call your insurance to make sure they are in network before you go in.

Tips & Advices
  • If a tooth decays and the nerves or pulp (soft internal tissue which helps teeth develop) become inflamed or infected
  • If a tooth is cracked or broken and nerves are exposed
This generally depends on any specific issues you wish to address with your teeth. There are toothpastes designed to whiten teeth, fight cavities, decrease sensitivity, prevent bad breath, resist gingivitis, and those specific to children (with lower fluoride content). There are also toothpastes that offer “complete” protection by combining aspects of many of the above toothpastes.
It’s recommended to get a professional cleaning at least two times per year.
  • Desensitizing toothpaste numbs the nerves in the teeth that can cause discomfort.
  • Mouth guard can protect against grinding teeth during sleep.
  • Fluoride treatment can be applied by dentists to sensitive areas to numb teeth and strengthen enamel.
  • Root canal can treat problems in a tooth’s core.
  • Surgical gum graft where a piece of gum tissue is removed from a section of the mouth to cover an exposed root.
Not everyone needs to have their wisdom teeth removed, but there are certain signs that can help you and your doctor determine if yours should be:
  • Wisdom teeth are pushing other teeth around, causing pain and misalignment
  • Cysts form around newly emerged wisdom teeth, causing jaw damage
  • Gums get inflamed and swollen, causing cavities and pain
  • Doctor determine from x-rays that wisdom teeth will cause problems in the near future
