Allcare Dental Transfers Patient Records

A national dental chain that ran out of money and closed its offices around the country says it is finalizing agreements in numerous states to transfer patients to other dentists.
Citing cash flow problems, Allcare Dental and Dentures shut down operations in 14 states last week. In a message posted online Monday, the company said it hopes to have a number of agreements signed in the next few days to transfer patient records.
Some agreements already are in effect for patients in Iowa and parts of Ohio and New York. In New Hampshire, patients were allowed to pick up their records one day last week.
Allcare also had offices in Illinois, Indiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, North Dakota, Nebraska, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, West Virginia and Wisconsin.

    Contacting the Attorney Generals office has helped ease my mind as to what can be done re: crown still waiting at Allcare, money paid for services not done. Both my husband and I were patients and have lost money and partial work done. Our "patience" is what is needed the most right now and The A/G "file a complaint" does help.
