FLINT TWP. — AllCare Dental & Dentures, 4307 Miller Rd., was one of many stores across the United States that unexpectedly shut its doors Jan. 3.
The chain, founded in 2001 in Erie, Penn., shut down all of its operations, including the Miller Rd. retail store. When customers tried to visit the store on Jan. 3, the doors were locked and a notice is on the front door, telling patients that the company is working to find dentists to continue patients’ care. The notice also refers patients to its websites, allcareinfo.com and allcare.com, which is no longer up and running. Customers also are unable to call the store due to the phones being shut off.
According to news reports from Michigan and other states, the company posted a statement on it website Jan. 3 saying: “The reason for closing is because the business became severely cash constrained and had no way to continue to operate going forward. Allcare was confident in their financial plan to avoid this situation. The plan was to wind down underperforming offices while at the same time raising capital from an equity group.”
Patients of Allcare Dental & Dentures, who need immediate help or are experiencing dental emergencies, are asked to go to an emergency room or call 911.
