Additional Notes

Complaint: I went to Gulfside Dental to have crowns put on 3 teeth. The impressions were taken on September 1, 2015. I have a dental plan that requires me to pay half the fee up front. The impressions were taken and sent to the lab. Dr ****** told me it would be a little while but it would be taken care of in a month or so. I called every so often to check on the status of the crowns and was told someone would call when they came in. I called the first of December and the office told me the lab lost the impressions. Dr ****** told me I needed to come back in for impressions. I told Dr ****** I was going to another dentist and wanted a refund. She in turn gives me a lesson in metaphors. Dr ****** tells me that this is like a person receiving a package from Fedex that I opened and could not return. I explained I did not have the crowns and payed for half of them up front. She told me I would not be able to get a refund. This office is being run on a shoe string. If this office cared about me as a client they would have had the crowns in already.

Desired Settlement: I want a refund.

Consumer Response: The credit card company refunded my money and resolved the issue.
