I purchased a GROUPON that included x-ray's, exam, cleaning and a whitening kit for $49. They were over a month out on scheduling but I was not surprised due to the Groupon. I arrived at my appointment. They were ready for me when I got there so there was very little wait. The hygienist took me to the exam room and did the x-rays, and took a series of measurements. I waited while I was told that Dr. Samani was looking at my xrays from his office. He came in and told me that I had deep pockets between my teeth and gums and said I needed periodontal scaling. I was quite surprised because I take good care of my teeth and was told last year by my hygienist back in Missouri that my teeth and gums were healthy. The financial lady came in and told me it was going to be $760. I told her that I cannot afford that today. She then told me I could purchase insurance through them for $125 a year and that would drop the cleaning to $400. I told her again that I cannot afford that and asked for the cleaning that was included with the Groupon. She became rude and short with me and said “Texas state law prohibits us from cleaning your teeth since the doctor recommended periodontal scaling". They handed me my whitening kit and ushered me out the door.
Sensing that I had been scammed, I made an appointment with a dentist in Cedar Park. Guess what? I do not have periodontal disease. The Cedar Park dentist did the same kind of measuring between teeth and gums and said my numbers were completely normal. My teeth and gums are in excellent condition.
This place is a scam. I wish I had not wasted my $49 (Groupon price) since I did not even get my teeth cleaned. Very sad and disappointed and wondering how the employees there sleep at night.
