For Immediate Release

James T. Boffetti, Senior Assistant Attorney General
Chief, Consumer Protection & Antitrust Bureau
New Hampshire Attorney General Michael A. Delaney has announced that Allcare Dental and Dentures, which abruptly closed all of its offices around the country in the beginning of the year, has recently signed agreements with Aman Syed, DDS, a dentist licensed by the New Hampshire Board of Dental Examiners, to transfer all patient records of Allcare patients. Allcare's offices had been located at 2 Cellu Drive in Nashua and 1525 South Willow Street in Manchester.
Under these transfer agreements, all dental records of patients treated at Allcare's Manchester and Nashua offices will transfer immediately to Dr. Syed.
Dr. Syed's practice is named 3 Stone Dental. According to Dr. Syed, he plans to open a dental office within a few weeks at the site of the Manchester Allcare office at 1525 South Willow Street.
The Attorney General's Office, in conjunction with Attorneys General in the other states where Allcare was located, have been investigating the circumstances that led to the abrupt closing of Allcare offices. Soon after the New Hampshire offices closed, the Attorney General's Office helped arrange for Allcare to open those offices for one day to allow patient access to their records and to pick up any dental appliances that were finished and located in those offices. Hundreds of patients came that day and many were given copies of their records. Since that day, the Attorney General's Office has been making demands for Allcare to provide records for those patients who were not able to get records.
Patients who are still in need of their records may contact Dr. Syed through his new officer manager, Mike Papik, by mailing a request for records to 3 Stone Dental c/o Mike Papik, 1525 South Willow Street, Manchester, NH 03103 or calling Mike Papik at (603) 854-4336. Patients having difficulty reaching Dr. Syed's office may also call the New Hampshire Board of Dental Examiners at (603) 271-4561.
