Treiber, et al., v. Aspen Dental Management, et al

Along with the National Consumer Law Center, National Consumers League and Consumers Union, Consumer Action filed a friend of the court brief in a case objecting to corporate dentistry practices at Aspen Dental clinics, which they argue harm unwary consumers by pressuring them into expensive and prolonged treatment plans, which must be paid for upfront. If patients are unable to pay for their treatment plans, they are urged to pay by opening controversial high-interest medical credit cards, which often split fees with the corporate dentistry outfits. The case is Treiber, et al., v. Aspen Dental Management, et al. pending in the U.S. Court of Appeals, Second Circuit.
