"Once I was in the dental chair, Dr.
came in and yelled at me in front of all her staff, "I do not work for free". "If I am" unhappy with her, I should leave now"! I cried. I'm sitting there very
, with a missing front tooth and the person I'm suppose to trust has just humilated me! As I look back on our relationship, my gut had been telling me, that she does not care about her patients or her staff. I never saw such a high turn over as I did in her office! It was all about the money! She bully's her staff, her husband and her patients! Please do your home work when looking for a dentist! This has cost me a lot of money as I'm starting over. She is not a nice person! Her dental work needs constant redoing!

"My son who also advertises his business on Angie's list found out that Dr.
also has a profile on here and wanted to get the word out" for Dr.
. The entire staff of her practice are amazing. Everyone remenbers your name and the name of your children. It's a warm, friendly and comfortable enviroment. My Son has panic disorder and he does really well with the staff there and I think that says a lot for a dentist. Her actual work is amazing also. I have dentures now so I can't speak of my own teeth but my son was dealing with some severe decay in his front teeth and it caused him to be extreamly self conscious. Dr.
rebuilt the surface of his teeth and you honestly can't tell there was ever an issue at all. Dr.
is the full package and everything you could want. I highly recommend her and her staff.

 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.

I've been going to Dr.

since 2009, and I'm very happy with his services. He's a great communicator, he explains everything clearly, and his billing staff does an excellent job too. He is very popular, however, so it can be difficult to get an appointment at times.

again I am strongly fearful of the creditability of this dental group. My daughter is now in a panic when I tell her that I am questioning the need for this dental work and suggest that she see a different dentist for a second opinion. This dental practice's methods sound a lot shady to me and concentrate on monetary gain above patient's well being and real medical need. Where was this dentist educated and who certified him? I would never use this dentist. He very much sounds like s bad dentist. Run away as fast as you can! Now I have the challenge of advising my daughter again and having her upset at me. I have to consider her safety and medical protection above all else. After researching this dental group, I was deeply disturbed. Reviews were in the majority negative and scores were multiple D's with patients suffering from the dental procedures performed by this group.

I have been going to him for a couple of years. We have been happy with them. My husband saw him three months ago. He's honest and he does good work. He gives us options. He explains things and will take x-rays. They are very nice and professional.

She's very personable but very quick & efficient. She doesn't waste time. Her office staff (dental hygienists & dental technicians) are also very professional and very highly trained. I typically wait not more than 15 minutes to be seen when I arrive. She's busy but they keep to the schedule pretty well.
