This is one of the many Aspen Dental Commercials, but I sooooo hate these damn commercials!

They're a pain in my Aspen Dental!
Thank God for kids who love Obscure Things.

I've never seen this P.O.S. ad before (just luck or is it a regional company?).  I hate commercials with that quick back & forth banter in both dialogue and camera shots.  That stupid Progressive rapid fire question ad also comes to mind.

I hate Aspen Dental ads. The one mentioned above has stopped airing months ago, but there are two new ones out (no videos that I can find anywhere, however). 

1. A man walks in wanting to know how much it will be for dentures. The twit office clerk spins a "Wheel of Fortune"-like wheel, with people clapping, and lets him know it will be "$200 extra!" False. I've never seen a dental office do this before.
2. A woman asks for a guarantee on her dentures. But then the office clerk focuses her attention to her male employee, who has become the "cooling fan" in the office. He waves his hands and body endlessly as if he's having a seizure. Are you kidding me?! 

F**k off Aspen Dental! We are sick of you!

Nothing's free except air.  Somehow, these free exams and x-rays will end up costing.

Don't get your hopes up. My tires had low pressure due to cold temperatures. The warning light was irritating so after refueling I drove around the station to spend 25 cents for air. The vending machine was gone! A few days later I spotted a machine at a different station and pulled in for air. I discovered the price had increased from 25 cents to $1 in 5 years! I mentioned this to the attendant and he just shrugged. I waved my hands at the sky and asked "are we running out"! Actually I would have paid 5 times that to turn the stupid light off.

Oh, yeah.  There are 2 gas stations right near me.  One charges $1.  The other one charges a quarter, but all you have to do is go inside and ask them to turn the air on, and they'll turn it on at no charge.  But that station is nice, with a really good convenience store and a separate Starbucks-style coffee concession inside.  There's even a Model A hanging from the ceiling for some damned reason.

edit:  the 'net has everything!  Here's a pic of the Model A:

Air is still free at Wawa and Sheetz ... at least where I am. Other places charge $1 ... in quarters, of course.

At least I had 5 or 6 quarters in my pocket. When I was working at a "service" station in 1971 not only was the air free. The attendaxxxx would install it for you, even if you did not purchase anything.

I think den_tal care in the US, over the years, has turned in_to an over-priced insurance scam.  I don't wan_t any X-Rays unless a tooth hurts.  And what good is my den_tal insurance 50% coverage for a crown when that crown costs $1400.?

Lately I just go for a vacation in Mexico and pay $270. for a crown and $37. for a cleaning.

^  The last time I was at the dentist, some guy came in inquiring about teeth whitening.  They told him he had to get the whole examination/X-ray thing first.  (Why people are so hung up on having such bright teeth is beyond me, but that's another question.)  The guy decided to forego the whole thing.

Sure has. Parents are paying thousands of dollars on their kids braces. Oral-B's website says just for traditional metal braces, it's $3000-$7000!!! Ceramic ones are even worse. Unless if I had d e n t a l insurance on my child, or had Medicaid/Medicare, there would be no way I could pay $7,000 just to get a child's teeth straight.

^^ In my last visit to a US den_tist they even wanted an extra $20 for a mouth cancer screening.  All they did was lift up my tongue and look underneath.  I thought, "Why isn't that 10 second exam included in the overall exam?"

^ After they tell me that a crown costs $1100., I get the written estimate and it shows extra charges for 'preparation', 'core buildup', and 'adhesive', so the cost is actually $1423.  Adhesive??!  They are charging me extra for glue?
