"
has actually been my dentist for better than 30 years. I've stayed with him for all that time for two reason: first, he's" honest -- there's never been any hint that he would recommend a procedure for his own financial benefit rather than to benefit the patient. In fact my first crown, in 2010, came about because I had bitten down on an olive pit that was not supposed to be there - shattered a tooth. He and I had discussed my upcoming need for a few crowns over the years, but he never put a 'hard sell' on me. And his response to the shattered tooth was that he had been expecting something like that to happen given the size of the filling in that tooth and the resulting weakness of the tooth itself. He wasn't quite gleeful that time had proven him right. (He's really a very nice person with a great sense of humor.) Over the years, he had simply accepted my reluctance to have the crowns done, never pushing me on that, but waiting until I became convinced the work needed to be done. And the olive pit convinced me. Since then, he's done 3 more crowns for me; We're scheduling these to maximize insurance payments for the work - only 50% of the cost up to a certain limit each year, with my retirement and the end of that dental insurance coming up quick. There's 1 more crown to go. During the last series of appointments, he actually revised DOWNWARDS his estimate of the number of crowns I needed - 2 teeth that actually just need a renewal of fillings. The second reason I've been his patient for so many years: he has the most incredible hands -- they seem by themselves conscious of the need to be gentle -- very different from those well-meaning people in health care who have to keep reminding themselves that what their hands are touching is not dead meat but a living human being. There really is an unconscious awareness in the hands of some people, and Dr.
is in that group. But I could give you a third reason also -- this man is not someone who just does 'satisfactory' work, he’s a craftsman who clearly thrives on the satisfaction of having done an excellent piece of work.

"It was our understanding that Dr.
would accept our dental insurance. Payment in full was requested in advance and we were told that they" would then bill our insurance company and we would be refunded the balance. Our dental insurance is through the largest dental insurer in the United States. Their fee schedule is accepted by most dental providers and is based on what a reasonable fee should be for a procedure. The charge for putting crowns on two teeth was over $5,000 and 51% more than what our dental provider stated the fee should have been. We requested a refund for the amount of the overcharge and
refused.

Prosthodontics/dentures

Missing, discolored, chipped or broken teeth can seriously affect your smile, dental health and self-confidence. A dentist specializing in prosthodontics can restore or replace your missing teeth.

Crowns are considered a common dental procedure. Gathering information about this treatment option prior to visiting a dentist may empower a consumer to make the best decision for their own oral health.

If you need false teeth, a denturist or prosthodontist should be able to fit you with comfortable and affordable dentures to match your needs and budget.

If you are missing several teeth, or considering a full or partial denture, your best option is implant supported dentures, says Petrusha. (Photo by Katie Jacewicz)
Dentistry - Dentures/Prosthodontics

Avoid a gap-toothed smile with modern dental implants. Better than bridges or dentures, implants can replace a lost adult tooth both in fashion and function.

 I am familiar witht he ClearChoice Dental Implant Centers across the country, in particluar, the one in Overland Park, KS.  They are a "one stop" implant center.  The doctors there are at the top of their field, and an advantage is that you have all of the specialists that will be working with you in the same place.  That would have to make communication easier between doctors.  They usually offer seminars for patients and I think, offer free consultations, which is always worthwhile.

  If you chose to go the other way, some Prosthodontists will place and restore the implants themselves. In other cases, an Oral Surgeon or Periodontist will place the implant and a Prosthodontist or General Dentist restores it.   Fees can vary quite a bit from office to office and with the different options for restorative materials.  Some offer free consultations, for others, they charge a fee that might be applied to any future treatment in some cases.

The first step is to schedule a few consultations with different providers, which it sounds like you've already done.

The most important factors when deciding which practitioner to work with:
:
.1.  You should feel comfortable asking your doctor any questions so that you have a good understanding of the procedure itself, healing time and long-terem outcome, and possible complications.  Write down a list of questions and take them with you to the consultation.

2.  Ask about the experience of the practitioner. How many similiar procedures have they completed?  Have they had any major complications with any cases?  Ask to see photos if possible.

3..Figure out if it works out better for your schedule, to go to a "one stop" provider or to separate providers for the placement and the restoration of the implants.

4. Follow your instincts.  If you feel rushed, didn't get direct answers to your questions, didn't communicate well or had any other negative feelings, this probably isn't the doctor for you.

5. Consider insurance coverage and financing options.  If your dental plan covers implants and it is important to you to use a preferred provider, you will want to check your list.  Many times, insurance does not cover implants, or at least not all of the steps.  You may want to inquire about payment and financing options.

I hope this at least helps you feel a little less confused and a little more directed. Please don't hesitate to contact me if I can be of further help.

As a  Dentist, I am sorry to hear about your denture nightmare and I know how frustrating that can be.  I am surprised that your doctor wasn't willing to work with you on some type of solution.  A few options would be either remaking the dentures once more,  or offering to return some of the money and have you return the dentures.   Unfortunately, the doctor has put in a lot of their time and lab expenses, but the patient also  has time and money invested.  You might try sending a letter re-explaining the problems you hand and offering an acceptible and fair solution.  Be sure to keep a copy of it and any correspondence you receive from the Dental Office.  In the event that you don't get anywhere, you have documentation of the problem. 

At any point in the process, did they have you sign something saying you were happy with the denture set up?  Some practitioners will document the patient's acceptance at the try-in appointment, before the denture is processed.  At that time, changes in tooth arrangement, size and color can be made with minimal lab expense. 

If the letter doesn't get you anywhere, you might try going to the governing body of the dental profession in your area.  I am a dentist in Blue Springs, Missouri, USA.  Here, we have the Missouri Dental Board  (or the Dental Division of the Missouri Department of Professional Registration.)  This is the entity that licenses us to perform our professional duties in our state.  They often have a process to file complaints against a provider if you were unable to resolve the problem yourself.   After your complaint is received, they will contact the doctor to get their side of the story, then try to mediate a solution between the two parties.  

As far as a new set of dentures, you might seek out the services of a Prosthodontist (specializes in dentures and removable appliances - extra training and certification beyond general dentistry) or go to a local dental school.  The students are supervised and checked off at each step by professionals.  Most dental schools also treat patients through their faculty practices, and you can often get the services of a specialist at a lower price. 

I hope this information is helpful to your situation, and I wish you well.

Prosthodontist reviews in Harrisburg

Great from start to finish. Perfect. From getting me in the office on an emergency basis, then after a very brief waiting I was called in and they took some x-rays. Then Dr.

examined me and explained the entire situation before proceeding. The entire procedure from x-rays to impression to making a temporary crown, the entire team was just excellent and very professional.

Overall experience not good. Several issues with appointments being scheduled, rescheduled or incorrect. Front office staff unprofessional and erratic. Show up for appointments scheduled for cleaning, no hygienist. They schedule appts then call to cancel or change at the last minute because "that is our lunch hour". Have needed several appts for fittings, cleanings, etc and they don't ever seem to know why I am there or what I am scheduled for. Billing is also a hassle. I would not recommend this practice. I am still waiting for my permanent teeth!
