How can I become part of the class action law suit in Florida.
I am at war with Aspen Dental in Citrus Heights, CA.
These events took place at that office, between 1/4/2021 and 10/5/2021.
After paying more than $9,000 up front for Comfilyte upper denture/lower partial; having all but six teeth extracted and received the temporary dentures that are included with the purchase of Comfilytes; and having my care delayed months as they went through 3 dentists and their entire support staff, Aspen Dental now refuses to make my permanent dentures, stating that my remaining teeth have deteriorated since my first appointment (despite no indication of that from the previous two dentists who saw me on multiple occasions) and a partial plate was “doomed to fail.”
I later emailed the office manager and regional manager to say that, given this assessment, I would have to proceed with a full lower denture (as implants were not an option for me), however, as their office delayed my care for so long and never indicated that my remaining teeth were in jeopardy, I did not expect to be charged any additional money for the additional, unfortunate steps necessary for me to receive my Comfilyte dentures.
It is interesting to note that the Citrus Heights location is currently named in two ongoing lawsuits, both filed during the time I was their patient. One is in small claims court, for extracting the wrong tooth and then refusing to fix the victim’s partial to accommodate their mistake; the other is a class action lawsuit brought by Aspen Dental employees, citing things like too many hours, too many workdays, and no breaks. Both of these played a demonstrative role in the delays and lack of continuity in my care.
Next, I spoke to the regional manager, who told me that patients were never happy with their full bottom dentures (implying I should get the pricier implants) and stated that I would definitely have to pay for any additional costs.
I then received a check from Aspen Dental Corporate that I neither requested nor cashed, in the amount of $1,200. When I called Corporate, I was informed that Aspen Dental has fired me as a patient and no one within their company would speak to me about my case. I was also told I would have to sue Citrus Heights, not Aspen Corporate.
The owner of the Citrus Heights location, Dr. Judge, was named in a successful class action suit in New York for exactly these kinds of fraudulent practices. Her license was suspended and she was fined. She simply switched locations and now owns offices in Citrus Heights and Elk Grove.
It appears I will have to take them to Small Claims Court. On 11/17, I called the Citrus Heights office, seeking a copy of my own records. They have refused to send me anything, stating my account is blocked and I’d have to go through Corporate, which, as I’ve stated, has said they won’t speak to me either.
I have lost so much weight because I can not eat properly. The upper and partial dentures they have left me with were never intended to be anything but temporaries while my gums healed, and, because my gums did shrink considerably, they do not fit.
Aspen Dental has left me desperate, stolen my money, abandoned my care and denied me the services for which they were fully paid.
I need help, and so far I have been unsuccessful at even getting a dentist malpractice lawyer to return my calls or emails. If there is a class action suit I can join from California, I would dearly love to do so. If not, I’d sure like to start one.
