"They removed some decay and made a new cap; discussed pro's and con's of new cap vs reinstalling the old one. I opted for a new cap. Cap was not as soft" as the old metal cap but price was much less than the metal cap. Installation was quick and left a generous amount of clearance. Cap was made offsite so there was the standard 10 day wait with a temp.

"Dr.
has been my dentist for several years, and I like him a lot. Even when I retired and had to give up my dental insurance, he's reasonably" enough priced that I could keep going to him. When he does teeth filling, he likes to do each tooth on a separate appointment. He has made a lot of exceptions for me, such as getting a partial plate done overnight for me by calling the person to get them to come by and pick it up so I could have it the next day. That was wonderful for me! I feel like he's always given me good dentistry at a reasonable price.

 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.

Due to my insurance change, I had to find a new dentist. I made my first appointment with
Lamont Dentists Provider Name Locked
. During that appointment, they tried to sell me services I didn't want; I refused all but basic dental cleaning. Apparently they were not happy with me since I rejected those services they recommended to do, that hygienist rarely spoke to me during the whole cleaning process, acted very cold and indifferent. And later on, they kept putting off my second appointment by calling me to cancel it or move it to another date; the excuses were the hygienist was not available or had a special meeting on that day though the appointment was already made ahead of time. They were rude and cold and not welcoming me as a new patient all after I rejected using the extra services they asked me to. Guess what? A few months later, i got a new insurance and were able to go back to my previous dentist who and whose staff I like very much, and they never asked me to do those services this dental office wanted me to do. I'm glad that I rejected those unnecessary services and saved money! So be aware of extra unnecessary services and the risk of being discriminated by the staff once you said no to those services.

He’s done some serious damage on my mouth, and I'm not the only person that that has happened to. I actually referred people there because I liked him, but then they had trouble with the appliances he put in and two of them ended up

him. The appliances didn't fit right, so they ended up breaking my teeth. I had to have one surgically removed, because the wire was caught between two teeth.

I just kept going to the same one because I don't like change, and he was a friend.

Whether or not I had an appointment, I still had to wait.

Very well. They've been at it for decades there. Smooth and as communicated. His office is also a listed provider with the Careington 500 Discount Plan which generates a discounted pricing structure as well.

Dr.

fit me in this morning to fix a filling that had been bothering me for a while. It had fallen out the night before while flossing and due to the sensitivity, I didn't want to wait. I called the office a bit before they opened, and they said they would be able to get me in right at 8 am.
My husband and I have been seeing Dr.
Lamont Dentists Provider Name Locked
for a few years now and I know his practice is very busy so I'm very appreciative they made the effort to squeeze me in between their other morning patients. I've definitely been that patient who is having a regular cleaning done and wondering "why is the Dr. taking so long?" and now I know. Having seen this from the other side, I know it's because he goes out of his way to make sure urgent and unscheduled issues/accidents are addressed.
He doesn't rush or take shortcuts - he is 100% dedicated to you while you're in the chair. I also have to comment on the staff. Dr.

employs professional, thoughtful, and charismatic office staff who make you feel welcome. AND my husband had referred new clients to

and they sent us a $25 Gift Card - HOW COOL IS THAT?!

I have been with him for thirty years. He is very nice and very personable. All the staff have always been terrific. The dental hygienists are very nice and very accommodating. Actually they have just re-decorated the inside of the office and it’s very nice and very professional. He just combined with another practice.

I would not still be going there if he is not an “A”. I am very picky about my dentist. I never had trouble getting in when I needed to get in. The office is kind of welcoming, feels at home and very professional but it’s not cold and clinical. The staff has always been very friendly. I am comfortable with Dr.

He is very good. I like him just fine. I have been going to him a good while. His availability is fine. When you call, you can always get an appointment like the next day if you need it. His office environment is very nice. The woman in the office is excellent. His punctuality and professionalism are perfect. His staffs are good. His treatment is excellent. Their billing and administration is fine because they do the insurance thing.

They are good. I have been with them since 1999 and they are wonderful over there. I have only been with my present dentist for a couple of years; he is fairly new. He is a nice guy, listens to me and was very gentle. The staff is wonderful.
