Beware of this place, I went to Affordable Dentures in Morristown Tn. for lower partials, this was the closest location for me, 2 and 1/2 hour drive. I chose this place over my local dentist who had made my previous "perfect" partials, because he could not get me an appointment for 2 weeks. I had read (internet) that Affordable Dentures could make dentures in one day (NOT TRUE) and I needed my teeth immediately. I am a teacher and I had orientation that week.
The first visit, I arrived at 6 am, (opened at 7) I wanted to be first in line and I was. They took me back into the clinic and made 6 impressions and told me to come back at 3. I arrived at 230 and waited until 3 (I was first in line again) I was sure they would call me first, but they called everyone that had arrived after me first, (that was more money for them since most were getting the full set of dentures). Finally, my name was called. They had produced this ridiculous partial that didn't come close to entering my mouth. So they take 4 more impressions (I was nauseous the rest of the evening), and told me to come back the next day.
They assured me that they needed more time to work on my partials, that they had someone in the lab that specializes in the making of partials and they would get it right this time. The next morning, I decided to call before I left (that is a long drive) and they told me not to come, that they needed to order more teeth. I was ok with that, I really wanted the partials to be right and if they needed more time to accomplish that, then so be it.
The third day, I called and they said to come on in, my partials were ready. I really need to get these partials immediately, so I can return to work. Again, I was the first one there, arrived at 2:30 (supposed to be there at 3) and again they take everyone that had arrived after me, before me. Finally, they call me back and to my dismay they were worse than before. After several attempts to "make them fit" they gave up. The dentist suggested I go somewhere else and I ask for the $270. cash payment, I had made two days before, back. They could not give my money back, they said they had to "get corporate to send me a check in the mail".
The funny thing about the whole situation is that my local dentist took ONE impression and made ONE partial that fit perfectly at a cost of $230.
The next day after I returned home from the last visit, I had two nasty fever blisters to pop up on my mouth.
Monetary Loss: $270.
