Closed dental company working to transfer patients

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

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, including Indiana, 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.

Allcare operated eight offices in Indiana, including one each in Indianapolis, Avon and Anderson.

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, Massachusetts, Michigan, North Dakota, Nebraska, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, West Virginia and Wisconsin.
