"I was charged over $250 for replacing crown, which charge included an X-
which was not needed ( the root was whole and I had no symptoms of" root problems), another amount for a "partial exam", which could only mean looking in my mouth to see where exactly to replace the crown ( I do not consider that an exam and should not have been billed for such, then for cementing the crown itself. A
procedure was made complicated, apparently for pricing purposes. The dentist Dr Twargowsky held forth on his conservative political views while working in my mouth (inappropriate!). When I asked about further hygiene appt, the staff insisted that it was a state law that I had to have 20 X-rays before doing anything. I found out from a subsequent interview with another dentist that this was not mandatory but up to the discretion of the dentist. I do not think it is ethical to lie to patients. As a person in my 70s, I have been to many excellent dentists, but unfortunately this dentist appeared motivated more by greed than service. I choose to look elsewhere for a dentist. My standards of service are higher.

"He is the best of the best. we've been going to him for at least 35 years or longer. He's very conscientious. He's not cheap - you pay to have the" best service. He's not expensive, but he's at the higher end of the prices. You pay it because you want your teeth looking great. He's extremely professional.

If your dentist has recommended that you have any type of cosmetic or oral surgery, an oral surgeon will likely perform it. Learn how oral surgery can help improve your smile and enhance your dental health.

As more people opt for dental implants instead of traditional crowns and tooth bridges, look at costs, time and oral health before choosing this procedure.

 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.

They’ve completely updated their offices and have state of the art equipment. They are the best dental office in town. They even built-in massages in their dental chairs. I had to have a 5 year x-

This is a very professional practice and I think the work done is excellent. I have been going to this practice for years and have never met anyone that has not been friendly and reassuring. I have a terrible fear of dental procedures from some horrible experiences many years ago. I still don't like having to have work done in my mouth but when I have to this is the office I want to have it done at. The office is immaculately clean which is a must in my opinion. I have never had to wait more than 5 minutes in the waiting room. Many of the staff have been with this practice as long as I have been going there which tells me it is a nice place for them to be as well which is reflected in their positive attitude.

If I have any suggestion to help frightened patients like myself it would be to not talk about things you plan on doing quietly behind me. What you are discussing about instruments and ways to do things with each other are frightening to me. I know you need to discuss these things but a quick reassurance and explanation to me would be helpful. This is not a complaint because I know you do your best to try to make me feel comfortable but I am such a ,"chicken", that I have trouble relaxing trying to hear what is next. Thank you for understanding my fears and always striving to make the dental experiences at your office the best possible.

I am new to the area and I got his name from someone i know. He saw me in a reasonable amount of time. I have 2 insurances, but he insisted on getting paid up front and said they would take care of billing the insurance company for me. When I received an insurance statement in early Feb. it showed that they had been paid instead of me so I called to get my refund. His wife had a defensive and nasty attitude immediately and told me she had not been paid yet! I called both insurance co. and was told they got paid. I called back a week later and spoke with Dr.

, who did the work. I asked for him to please send me a statement explaining my bill which I never received when I paid. He told me to stop harrassing them and hung up on me.
The entire environment is unprofessional and nasty. If you value your mouth and your money DO NOT GO.

She used high quality materials at a fair price. I had some sensitivity and she worked carefully until the crown was completely comfortable. She was very patient while working to perfect the fit and stability.

He has a wonderful and kind bedside manner. He is very in-tune to make sure he has your pain under control during a procedure. I received a daily call following the difficult extraction from members of the staff and/or from him. They are very accommodating with emergencies and I wouldn't consider going to anyone else.

Once I was numb, it was an easy removal of a back tooth. To no fault of Dr

, there was a jagged bone that came up through the gum where the tooth had been. The day I called about acute pain, he fit me in to see what was causing the problem. Dr

gave me a prescription and said it would take about two weeks before the bone broke off. However, the prescription did not help one bit. My mouth was on fire with pain, so I came to his office and he did an emergency oral surgery to shave down the bone. Since then, I have had no problem.
