Dentech Whitening Review

The Dentech Whitenign System is a scam. You will see this product advertised on the internet through fake testimonials posted on blogs. While the product may certainly be better than the scam brush-on whiteners, the company uses far too many illicit marketing tactics to make it legitimate. Their website will try to lure you in with their free sample offer - you will actually be signing up for a month-to-month supply that will be billed at $88.97 per month.

Our Observations

  • Dentech Whtiening uses fake testimonial blogs to dupe consumers.
  • The product was never mentioned on any of the listed "as seen on" sites.
  • Their website uses a timer to create a false sense of urgency. They do not want you to read the terms and conditions.
  • Imagery on the box is also used on the landing page for celebritysexyteeth[dot]com (another scam product)
  • The light based system has no effect on whitening (read this article on tooth dehydration)



Read our article about teeth whitening scams here. The company behind Dentech Whitening is probably behind many of the other scam teeth whitening products.

There ar e a lot of internet scams. Unfortunately some use names similar to legit companies and destroy good reputations. Dazzle White is NOT Dentech Laboratories in CA. They have a great product our dentist uses!!

just so you know dentech whitening the scam website is not affiliated whatsoever with dentech laboratories. similar name but www.dentechlaboratory.com
is a wholesale teeth whitening site that sells to dentists and distributors
not to be confused with the www.dentechwhitening.com guys who do the "free
trial offers"

so do your research. if you need good product go to www.dentechlaboratory.com
no hidden fees and they do a straight sale offer.
i can vouch for that.

I ordered it and was savvy enough to immediately call back and cancel the day I recieved the sample. Not Free at all by the way. They have their hands in about 8 other companies. Within 10 days they ran charges totally $648 to my credit card. Used all their various companies, including weight loss and excersize programs.
I disputed all these charges. I was lucky enough that my credit cards legal department took over all dealings with them and 5 months later all charges were reversed, But this company needs to be shut down. ALL OF THEM.

After months of uncertainity.. I received a refund from Dentech Whitening and DazzleWhite cancelled me without consequence. I had to go thru the Pennsylvania Attorney's General's office to have it done. Both companies tried to make me out to be the villian and that they were completely innocent and honest... DazzleWhite cancelled my account outright without any back charges. Dentech Whitening refunded $88.97 & Health Well??? (Wellness) I believe this is their Axis Wellness (nonfunctional/nonexistant healthy living fraud website) credited me $9.99 so I got my money back but I had to go the legal route to accomplish it! Funny, seems the only way to get their attention is to get the law after them!.. BTW it took a couple months. Luckly for me my BANK recommended that I cancel my debit card to prevent further abuse from these crooks. I did so and don't regret it... They sent me another one immediatly. From what I'm reading... many banks are not so inclined to do so! Also ... I had registered complaints with the Alberta Canada BBB, and their territory's governmental comerce department: Competition Bureau / Bureau de la concurrence [[email protected]] since the headquarters is supposed to be in Alberta, Canada. They were all familiar with these scammers and have had many complaints about them. I also filed a complaint with: Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3) FBI.
On another matter, I did a Search on "Google Earth" on 263 Olive Avenue #130, Burbank, CA which is "Dentech Whitening" mailing address... Google's Street view shows exactly what the address is: a "Rent-a-mailbox" in a strip mall! (Right down the street from the "Nickleodion" headquarters.) I intend to post this on the DazzleWhite website also.

Not a bad product but there was a hidden charge. I guess if the offer
is too good to be true it is.
Im not signing up for any more free trials thats for sure.
I get all my stuff from toothwhiteners dot com now
no hidden charges and they deliver promptly

In August I immediately called the phone number for information on returning merchandise that was printed on the outside of an unopened package of Dentech whitening that I believe I did not order, and I followed the recorded telephone instructions I was given, which told me to send an email for further instructions about returning the package. I never received a reply to that email, so I sought help from the credit card company. However, the credit card company has now reinstated the charge specifically because I had not returned the unopened package! So, I have been caught in what appears to be a vicious circle of scam. I wanted to return it immediately, I followed the instruction on the package, but I never received a reply to that request for return instructions.

I actually never used the product, I received a pkg and read that it cost me$89.87 and I checked with my credit union and I was charged $89.87. I called and tried to cancel and that person refused to help me,gave me the number for someone else. I sent an email asking for "RMA# to return the merchandise " and they sent me a email back that they would respond up to 48hours, that was August 16,2009 and haven't heard anything yet. I don't understand why with all of the many complaints about this fraud, nothing is being done. They are still advertising. I am so angry, I was stupid enough to use my debit card instead of American Express(I think that AE would have done something to get my money back.Now I am afraid to go on line and register for anything.

I am on my third request for cancellation, and so far...nothing. I tried to go through my credit card holder to cancel the request WITHIN 3 HOURS OF MY ORDER, and they couldn't do anything about this. I may end up cancelling my credit card just to get rid of this. Would a complaint to the State Attorney General's office help?

STAY THE HELL AWAY FROM DENTECH WHITE SMILE. You will not end up with a white smile because they are feeding so much CRAP to everyone. Even if you get a white smile it will not help you out any chewing their A$$ out.

DAZZLE WHITE...IS A SCAM !!! BUT HERE IS ALSO ANOTHER SURPRISE FROM
2 AFFLIATES OF DAZZLE WHITE !! The Affliate companies charged me this month also !!! On my credit card statement 2 months after cancellation of Dazzle White I have the following charges: VH ACCESS 888-332-2707 CYP $3.24 and HEALTHMEMBER 888-779-5303 cyp $7.14 reflected on my credit card. I called the toll free numbers and found out that they were authorized by my Dazzle White order to also charge me monthly for their products which is a weight loss program. After much discussion they cancelled out my "order" however would not refund me the $3.24 and $7.14 on my credit card. With much much discussion and asking for a supervisor I was able to get them to credit me back the costs. WATCH THEM !!! CHECK EVERY CHARGE ON YOUR CREDIT CARD STMT , EVEN THOUGH THEY ARE SMALL CHARGES THEY ARE STILL BEING CHARGED EACH MONTH AND MAY BE MISSED IF YOU DON'T CHECK YOUR FUTURE STMTS.
Also thought I was getting a trial offer for $1.97 one time charge...until in very small print it stated credit card would be charged $88 every month after that. Dazzle White did cancel out my order immediately so thank goodness I didn't get stuck with the on going monthly fee, but affiliate companies were a total shock !! READ THE VERY TINY SMALL PRINT...BEWARE.

Ditto with all the above comments. I REFUSE to pay my credit card provider the $88.97 fee. I contacted my credit card provider and filed a complaint complete with evidence that these scumbags are scamming people. My credit card company found if FAVOR of Dentech Whitening! DO NOT get a Bank Of America VISA card...they are as corrupt and greedy as the pieces of shit at Dentech. I still refuse to pay a penny to my credit card company for this bogus ripoff charge...just let them try and collect!!!

I can't find the words to describe how disgusted I am with this company and their deceptive advertising - fraud and scam come to mind. I've experienced everything that the others have complained about. Worst thing is all the additional memberships that I was inadvertently enrolled in when all I did was request a "free" trial offer of teeth whitener. Found out about them only when my credit union notified us of questionable charges. Each required a separate phone call to cancel my "membership". Could not/would not issue a credit for the amount already charged, but have been assured that I will not receive any further charges. We'll see. There should be a law against this. Is there?

This is a scam. They are cheater. I can't believe that they can do the cheating business like this openly. They advertised on Yahoo as if they offerred one-time deal. But when I ordered they automatically charged me as if I subscribed them. A deal of 1.99 or something turned out to be $100 after I had to call to stop them from charging me another time. They can't get away with what they are doing now.

This is definitely a SCAM!!! I too fell for the "tip" about getting a free trial for $1.97 and ended up getting charged $88.97. I had to send the item back before they would give me my money back. If they attempt to charge me again, I will definitely be raising hell, since I made it damn clear that I didn't want to be charged for anything except the $1.97 shipping fee. They make you think you're just getting the trial deal, but little do you know they are going to start charging you $88.97/month! GRRRRR!!! These people should be shot multiple times, strangled, beaten, dragged around by the neck, skinned and then beaten some more. I don't believe in religious crap, but people like this that make me hope there is a hell, just for them, sometimes.

There should be negative ratings for these scam companies. They don't deserve even a one.

I wish I would have read this before I got scammed out of a total of $150...until they reduced one of the prices half price which put me out of pocket $110...

I was expecting a free trial and could not afford this!

I also fell into the dentech whitening scam. I thought i was paying for a trial offer of $1.97 one time I received the second shipment just a couple days prior to the 15 day time limit. I did not know that i was signing up for a monthly shipment that i can not afford to do. I have emailed dentech to get a RA# for return. If enough people file a report maybe we can shut down this scam organization

I had the same experience with this product. A TOTAL ripoff.I received the product 5 days before the 15 day cancel period. I thought I had 15 days to try the product. I was charged the 88.xx . I am reporting them to the Better Business Bureau and I told them that. They have agreed to charge me $39.99 and sent me the terms and conditions in 3 separate e-mails. Total fraud. DO NOT sign up for this.

This is a a total scam. People, please don't even bother checking this out online. Unless you want to be charged $88.97 for a monthly subcription that you didn't realize you made while you're signing up for a free trial.
This is a complete fake advertisement.

I was shock to see they charged $88.97 on my account today. I never signed up for subcription for this. I called the number to cancel the subcription and demanded a refund, I was told to send email to get a refund. Why the hell can't they do it over the phone?

I contacted your office within 14 days from the receipt of your "trial supply by email address www.dentechwhitening.com and canelled any further orders of this product as instructed by your staff at: 888-822-4806. This email message came back as undeliverable; therefore, I called back again today as not only did I return your product I am now in receipt of another order and my credit card has been charged 88.97.

I will be contacting my credit card company and reporting this erroneous or fraudulent charge to them.

Sincerely
