"The staff in super nice and efficient. My braces experience is going really well. After only 7 braces, my teeth are lining up. I recommended the office to a friend" who has been having mouth pain for almost a year without his previous dentist or orthodontist being able to diagnose it. He saw Dr
and she diagnosed it within 10 minutes and he is on his way to recovery. These dentists rock!

"The visit went as well as can be expected. They took there time getting things done and explained the results afterwards. All in all a pleasant experience and will continue to use them.

 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 saw Dr.

for over 30 years. The new dentists at the practice do not provide the same quality of work or interact with clients in a professional and caring manner.

This dental office is clean. However, there are many reasons why I would not recommend this office. The front-desk assistants are sometimes rude and can be overhead gossiping about patients who are sometimes within earshot. The dentist with whom I was assigned has a very lackluster, joyless personality (it was as if she hated her job). I came in for a consultation for dental implants and was basically talked down to a poorly-fitting, sharp-edged metal partial (the edges were so jagged that I cut the insides of my mouth). Also, the impressions which were taken were left in my mouth too long and had to be pried out with force which then caused: i) an upper tooth to crack, ii) a crown to become loose and iii) a fewhi When I complained, I was treated as though I had nothing to complain about. I was constantly reminded that the insurance would only cover the wicked contraption which had been created by this dentist. i was constantly reminded not to miss an appointment, "as bills have to be paid" (this was said by the head of this operation, Dr.

The procedures were explained step by step with the cost and my options. Professional staff who made you feel comfortable. I want to especially thank

He waited 4 hours for his appointment. Was told he was past due for a cleaning that he got a couple weeks prior. After he got the work done he got a bill for over $400 after insurance for one filling. They were nasty when he called to get the x-rays and records released to us and would not let us pick them up. They were rude, incompetent and unorganized.

This time the hygienist requested a deep cleaning (I already knew, I needed it) from my bad brushing habits. Then the dentist came in and the hygienist briefed the dentist on my contrition then let out a little chuckle-giggle-laugh. It was only 1 second or less, just enough to hear it for a split second.
The dentist looked at the x rays and my teeth and proposed this plan that was besides the deep cleaning, I needed 3 crowns, and 5 fillings 4 metal and one composite. The plan would take 7-8 office visits and would end up costing $5071.00.The hygienist did do a little cleaning at this visit to "get the bulk off" her exact words.
I obviously went for a second checkup-opinion. I went to
Chico Dentists Provider Name Locked
Dental and the hygienist requested the deep cleaning which she did the same day. All quadrants for approximately $200.00 compared to
Chico Dentists Provider Name Locked
's $824.00. Probably because it was not as bad because
Chico Dentists Provider Name Locked
removed some of it.
The dentist came in and looked at everything and said I need 2 fillings which was going to cost approximately $150.00 or so for the 2.
I scheduled that for a week later.
So as of right now my total cost from
Chico Dentists Provider Name Locked
Dental is around $350.00. I will be going back in a couple months for the 6 month checkup-cleaning. As of right now no bleeding
Chico Dentists Provider Name Locked
, no hurting teeth etc.
Even if The dentist says I need more work I don't believe it will be $5000.00 worth as I completely changed by brushing-flossing habits.
I really did not like to hear the chuckle from a professional that knows obviously I don't like going to the dentist anyways. Then the complete differences in the 2 dentists. I don't think the dentist at
Chico Dentists Provider Name Locked
Dental is purposelessly not telling me I need work done so it adds up to a big bill later on.
But as of right now I think
Chico Dentists Provider Name Locked
tried to stick it to me knowing it has been 5 years since my last visit and bad habits. If
I am wrong I am sorry for the review but as of now that is my opinion.

Chico Dentists Provider Name Locked
Zupnick by Far is a
Chico Dentists Provider Name Locked
treasure in the world of periodontistry. Had the pleasure of being introduced to him through another dental provider, and he gave me 4 implants. They all have lastedfor 13 years and going strong to this day.
After forgetting the name of the periodontist who installed...More /> these EXTREMELY stable implants, 13 years later, i found out I needed two
additional dental implants, I interviewed two other Periodontists and even one
dentist who is certified to do implants, but not a true periodontist like
Dr.
Chico Dentists Provider Name Locked
Zupnick, I was extremely
saddened that I could not remember the name of the Dr Zupnick, untill one day,
I looked through all my old phone books, and recognized the name. I was so thrilled.
the other Dental Imjplant Doctors ALL suggested I extract a third tooth, which was a little loose, but Dr. Zupnick is such a character of good morals, he simply suggested, to shave it down a little, so it doesnt't bump into lower teeth, causing a great
majority of the forward and backward motion of the tooth, that has a smaller root than a "normal" tooth", and then he did a bone graft toaugment my jaw ridgeline, and he packed some extra bone around it, a eversince, the tooth has become stable.
After being told by three others this needed to be replaced, I realized, that Dr Zupnick, truely cares about the best interests of mymouth, and doesntjump to do implants for every imperfect situation.
He is a pleasant person to work with, ALWAYS has a smile onhis face, I wish i knew his secret, he is located right in downtown Bethesda,
Chico Dentists Provider Name Locked
, and
Chico Dentists Provider Name Locked
, so hes everywhere,a nd despite the pricey areas, his pricing is EXTREMELY reasonable. Dr Zupnick is passionate about what he does and I trust him 100% as he has gone above and beyond for me. I love him as my periodontist!!! Best of All, he is like a friend, he REALLY cares about how things are going for you in life. I give him a 20 out of 10. So Passionate, honest, smart, educated, and classy ALL the way!!!

I learned tonight from a national news story that the Doctor is involved in hunting beautiful animals for sport and is the subject of international outrage and possible facing criminal charges and deportation to stand trial for his crime of murdering a
