"we've been going there for 14 years. Her practice is unbelievable. They educate children. They put them at ease. My kids love to go. They get their teeth counted" by the big
bear. They get to watch movies while they get their teeth worked on. She has a phenomenal bedside manner and everyone she hires is the same way. I have a son with special needs who doesn't like people
around his face. But she managed to pull four teeth and fill cavities with him. She put him at ease and handled his behavior. She was just so good with him. I just recommended a friend to go there. Dr.
couldn't be better. She's on the forefront of things. They're remarkable with the children. They spend time educating them and helping them understand about oral health. She's really good. The orthodontist is excellent too.

-Julie B.

"The appointment went very well. The doctor had noted that her teeth had moved out of position slightly since the original treatment. He is going to design a series" of retainers that will help pull her teeth back into place at no charge because they consider her to be a lifetime patient of the practice. The office staff is always very warm, and it is obvious they truly care about their patients.

The Angie's List Guide to Dental Care

Angie's Answers

 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.

Orthodonture reviews in Hartford


This was a multi-phase project and we are almost done. My daughter's life is changed: she no longer has pain and headaches, she can sleep soundly, her jaws align normally and she has a beautiful smile! Every staff member is terrific-- smart, helpful, caring, friendly, and considerate. I constantly bump into people I know there, and each says what a great office it is. I feel that the costs were very reasonable, too. We were incredibly fortunate to find Dr
Hartford Orthodontists Provider Name Locked
and have him help us!
- Marideth L.

My son went to them for 2 years for his braces treatment. Everything was great for the entire 2 years. The office staff is very friendly and willing to answer any questions. They sent us timely appointment reminders which I really appreciated. My son always felt comfortable with them.
The only thing that was difficult to deal with at times was that they had a small waiting room. They ask that you only bring yourself and the patient to the appointments. That's hard to do when you have 3 children!
- Aimee H.

and his staff are absolutely wonderful. We have had several appointments in the last couple of years and every time it has been a pleasant experience. Never, ever, have we felt rushed when asking questions or during the exam/procedure. The procedures are explained thoroughly. The appointment always begins on the scheduled appointment time and the staff and Dr.

We absolutely love him and his staff! We get in and out in no time and they are always accommodating in an emergency. She should have her braces off in a few months and we will miss seeing them! We would recommend them highly!

Hartford Orthodontists Provider Name Locked
was wonderful throughout the entire process of my son's braces. She was always available for questions or concerns, and truly sought out the best solution for our individual needs. We never once felt she was in a hurry or took a different level of commitment with us once she received our payment. We highly recommend her services.
- Bridgett O.

.The office, staff and the doctor are par excellent. All our visits were great and they went out of their way to help us with what we needed. The doctor is highly qualified but is not one who pushes things on you that you do need.
- Mamta B.
