A string of dental offices have suddenly shut down after falling behind on rent, leaving staff without pay and patients frustrated.
When Katie Burns arrived at the Core Dental Group Brintnell office on Monday, she found the clinic closed.
“I was very panicked as to, who do I call, what do I do, how do I get my Invisalign,” she recalled.
Hours later, a notice from the landlord would appear on the door. It says the business owes over $64,000 in rent and has had its lease terminated.
“I mean one thing to have money issues and to close, but to give no notice, no information to your patients about what to do in the meantime?” said Burns. “I can’t be the only one in the middle of treatment.”
