Complaint Review: American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry/Cosmetic Dentistry Grants Program/Oral Aesthetic Advocacy Group Inc/
American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry/Cosmetic Dentistry Grants Program/Oral Aesthetic Advocacy Group Inc/ Lola Snidman Promises Grants for the most expensive cosmetic procedure in the thousands of dollars. Only, the first thing you have to do is pay $200 for XRays. SCAM!!!! Newark, New Jersey
*UPDATE Employee: Not A Scam
I filled out the application at about 2 am and heard from "Paula" the following morning at 9, who left me a message that I had been accepted and it was very important I get back to them within 48 business hours or I would lose my place. She also sent me an email letting me know she's just left me a voice mail. So, when I woke up I called them immediately. The very first thing I was told by Paula was:
"It will be $150 to$200 for X-Rays. Hope that's okay with you"
After a moment of stunned silence I hung up the phone. Within minutes I received an email telling me I had been "dropped from the program". "Gee" I wondered..if they're grating 10's of thousands of dollars...why won't they pay for x-rays?
So in my opinion this is a scam. "We give you 10's of thousands in grants for cosmetic dentistry,you just have to give us a lil 'ol $200 to get started". I don't think so.
I also looked up the reviews of the participating dentist in my city and they basically said he treated his wealthy patients well, and everyone who came in with a groupon was given short shrift, with long waits, major attitude and attempts to get the person who came in for a cleaning to commit to much more work. I saw something like 40 of this type of review for their local dentist. Well, if its too good to be true, it usually is. Buyer Beware!
