I encountered this Company through their online advertising which showcased a, supposedly, local resident in my area. The resident may exist but I can't find her.

I ordered a free, just pay shipping, trial of the "extra strength" peroxide whitening compound. It arrived in a 10ml syringe - which is supposed to be enough for the 14 day trial.

I used the product for 10 days on my upper teeth until the syringe was empty. I used it twice a day for a few days at the start. I had no improvement in color that I could see but my gums became so sore it was painful to brush my teeth. In use there was an aftertaste of ammonia that, a couple of times, almost made me vomit.

Since I saw no improvement, I called the toll free number to cancel my order.
Once I explained why I wanted to cancel, the lady, apparently East Indian, seemed more interested in getting me to extend the free trial and spent close to 10 minutes trying to entice me with "special deals", even cutting the monthly charge from around $80.00 down to $40.00. She only finally relented her spiel when I got angry and threatened to go to my Credit Card company and the BBB.

I alerted my Credit Card Co. about these people so that, if any more charges are put on my card, they know the situation and I have lodged a protest in advance.
After reading the other complaints on here I agree that there is something fishey about this Company.

Advanced Wellness Research, Co.

AUTHOR: John - (U.S.A.)

Just went to recheck some info on their Website and discovered that the supposed local resident who swears by this product, also resides in
Santa Cruz CA. I live in TN. When I first went to their site, I did it directly through Yahoo. Something showed their computer my location and they taylored their web page to suit. This time I accessed their site From a link on Fox News and found the same lady, Cathy Anderson, residing in CA. Unless there are 2 Cathy Andersons plugging for them. This Co. is a total Scam!
