NY-based Allcare dental chain closes unexpectedly

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - A New York-based dental chain has unexpectedly shut its offices nationwide because of apparent cash-flow problems.

Patients in states including New York, Michigan, Wisconsin and New Hampshire report going to Allcare Dental & Dentures offices for scheduled appointments over the last couple of days only to find the doors closed. Closings were also reported in Ohio and Pennsylvania.

A call Tuesday to Allcare's chief executive, David Pennington, hasn't been returned and the company's website is down.

Employees at Allcare's home office in the Buffalo suburb of Clarence told WIVB-TV they were told to come in over the weekend to collect their belongings.

New Hampshire's Board of Dental Examiners says it received a notice from Allcare Monday saying the company had run out of money.
