I dealt with Andrea for all of the admin-related items -- and she handled everything that I needed quickly and efficiently. She was a pleasure to work with and provided excellent customer service and a great experience overall. I would highly recommend this location to anyone!

They are not a place you want to go to. They will be extremely nice, manipulative until they get you hooked and have your money. Then you will get the snotty, condensing comments, mostly from Megan to basically go away. Megan is the problem in the practice, arrogant, snotty, openly provocative and derogatory.
On one hand they tell you to come in for "adjustments", but for the most part, especially with Megan, when you do come in, you'll get a barrage of innuendos, snotty remarks. The actions don't match the rhetoric.
I wish I would have looked somewhere else now. I doubt if I could get my money back for the second denture to go somewhere else. Also, there is a question about bone grafts that all other dentists said I need and this guy who said I don't. I think they are bubble gum artists.
Don't go here !

I would recommend this office to anybody in need of dentures! I am very young and have problem with my teeth since I was a child. Obviously the choice to get dentures at such a young age is a hard decision, but it is now one that I do not regret because of them. They did an amazing job, even removed all of the roots and burrs that the butcher from four years ago left behind! I don't know the quality of the cheaper dentures, but I got the highest quality ones they had and I couldn't have designed a prettier smile myself. I am only three days out and the swelling is minimal and I am already able to eat. As for the staff, they were awesome! Dr. Schnieder took the time to sit with me and answer all of my questions and concerns. He was surprisingly quick, which to some people sounds like a bad thing, but I very much appreciated it. The whole staff was very patient with me, which again was very appreciated. I was almost too discouraged to go there because of some of the reviews I had read, but in the end, it was a great choice and I an extremely happy with the outcome!

Was the dentures that you got very expensive out of pocket and the reason i ask is because i am very young as well and need them, I have no insurance.

I will call the office, but can you tell me what they ended up costing you? Did you also have to have teeth pulled? I have no Insurance, and will be paying out of pocket, and I am under 50.

DGS-they have a fee schedule online. I too am an out-of-pocket payer. I have an appointment in a couple of days as I am very unhappy with my very expensive current provider. Here is the link:

Trust me, the prices are very reasonable.

Yea I agree it's called customers service. Treating people like crap will cost people like this one day someone might bust their jaw for being snotty and cocky, maybe they will lose a few teeth. Haha.

Do you know if they offer free consultations? I would for sure want an immediate denture, any idea how much that costs? I don't see that on their fee schedule.

Megan did an awesome job for us and was very upbeat. One thing folks have to remember here is if you treatsome with disrespect and meaness, that is what you might get back in return. My husbands teeth fit him perfectly and is able to eat again. We went in asking for just the upper plate and new from another dentist that if we got the upper plate that he would have problems because the lower plate he had was worn down alot. So we went for the full set of the custom style and he has not had any issues what so ever. You can go somewhere is and maybe get better service, but you may have to pay. The other place we went wanted 1300 bucks just for the upper replacement - we got a whole new set for a lot less then that and had no complaints with their service. Megan as you say was extremly nice to us, maybe because we greeted with a smile and was not mean to her. Remember you reap what you sew......

I have not been to this office yet but I did call and set up an appointment and got the lowdown..

Sally, you are on the money.
Sure customer service is a position where being nice is a core part of the job. However those folks that do that job are human, and well no one is perfect.
Life happens no matter what your job is. I would guess from reading the comments by Bill from Denver that he may have had a bad day to start with and was possibly being a bit difficult to deal with himself. Or maybe Megan was breaking up with her significant other. We never know what is happening to others unless they tell you.
This office takes CareCredit, and can get you signed up.
It is great, no interest for the initial period as long as you make your payments on time. If you are late the interest gets heafty like 29%. But that will help with the financial burdens...

Since this post has become more about Megan than anything else, I would just like to point out that all of you assumed DLL was a problem customer. I have had very bad customer service and like most people did not say anything or do anything to provoke it. People judge you based on your clothing and cars and many shallow people treat you accordingly. I have a decent amount of money but on occasion I also love to wear old jeans and I am currently driving an old car just to see how long until the beater dies (it's a Metro at 20 years and 300K miles). DLL was angry at being treated with innuendos and a condescending attitude, frankly the business is paying Megan to give their customers service. Megan owes DLL an apology. You may get back what you give in public, not in a business from a person who is paid to solve grievances.

Aparently you did not go to this office, because they do not charge anywhere near that amount for dentures and teeth to be pulled. Their best dentures are $1,425! And it is only $85 for each tooth to be pulled.

You must be talking about some other office.

I have only had the BEST experiences with Affordable Dentures and Dr. Schneider's whole staff...including Megan!

I just wanted to say that I just had my lower plate done, after having an upper plate for 8 years now. The office staff was great, Dr Schneider was great at talking all of your options through, and at the dental work itself. Megan was kind and compassionate,talked me through the shots (which are the hardest part for me), and I left feeling like I was well taken care of. I was very satisfied with the customer service I recieved, as well as my new dentures!

I agree 100% with comment from BLL. Megan will be the ruin of that office, its pathetic how she treats people. She is the most condescending person I've ever come across in a customer service based business. She kept telling me "you need to get used to the dentures, its going to take awhile". How stupid could she be, this was a replacement denture, I'd been wearing for 5 years. If you need a cheap denture and this is your only choice, I'd drive to Colorado Springs. Delta dental is sending me to a specialist to see if the denture made for me can even be fixed, I doubt it can but will update after that appt. I will be taking this dentist to small claims court, no judge will make me pay for a denture that looks like I made it myself at home,

My mother recently went there for full replacement dentures. The price is good, but you can expect to spend your entire day there. We went in at 8 a.m. along with about 10-12 other folks that were told to be there at that time also and waited for 2 hours in the morning before we were called in. I don't know why they just can't make appointments for people instead of making them wait this long. Then we were told that we would be called back in at 11:30 to see the dentures and be able to ask for any corrections at that time. We weren't called back in until 12:30. At that time the dentist and the person designing the teeth discussed the changes they thought needed to be made and barely gave us a minute to look at the teeth. Really, I don't think they wanted our opinion at all. We were then told that they would be ready at 4. We weren't called in until a little after 5. We were told that if she had any discomfort, they would be able to make an appointment for her and get her in right away. I called to make an appointment because she is experiencing discomfort and was told that they couldn't guarantee she would be seen right away. This makes it hard for anyone who works because you could end up spending hours again. We have to wait two weeks now to get her in because they can't promise to get us in and out as they originally promised so we had to make an appointment for a day that we could spend a few hours. If you are looking for great or even good customer service, I wouldn't recommend them.
