Former Allcare Dental customers get refunds after offices close

294 get $543,360 from Ind. consumer fund

INDIANAPOLIS - Nearly three years after Allcare Dental offices abruptly closed nationwide, consumers are getting refunds from Indiana's Consumer Protection Fund.

Allcare Dental left customers without dentures in 2011 and did not offer refunds.

The Attorney General's Office said it received 294 complaints from Hoosiers and will be able to provide up to $3,000 to victims.

The fund gets its money from the penalties and fees collected from people and businesses that violated consumer laws.

The losses for former Allcare patients ranged from $69 to more than $9,000, but $3,000 is the maximum payout.

However, the refund is more than customers anticipated because Allcare went bankrupt.
