"I have been going to Dr.
for many years. Having watched my mother and mother-in-law
their teeth as they aged, I vowed" this would not happen to me. Dr.
and I began a preventative dentistry consisting of daily oral care, check ups twice a year, and addressing problems early on. He and his staff are knowledgeable, responsive, friendly and professional. He also offers an In House Dental Plan to keep annual prices low. I am very happy with my dental care and recommend Dr.
for your dental needs.

"
and her team were wonderful. I was nervous coming in to see a new Dentist and they walked me through each step of the appointment. They took" their time and did a great job with the cleaning, all while I wanted TV (great distraction). The office is modern, extremely clean, and in a safe location. I will be going back, already booked my next appointment, and would recommend this practice to my friends.

 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.

Needed an extraction. The staff was very helpful, professional and the dental
care was quite gentle. Great office environment. The office staff were also
very helpful, especially in filing my claim. I would definitely return to this office.

This was emergency visit as the cap came off my implant the night before. I called office first thing in morning and was told just come on and they would fit me in. I have been going to Dr.

This was the worst dental practice I have ever encountered. Their "free" exam cost me $550.00. This consisted of full mouth x-rays and a supposed deep cleaning of my
Cedar Falls Dentists Provider Name Locked
. Having had this procedure prior, Aspens was nothing more than a regular cleaning. Coming back for a second cleaning, I was told that I had periodontal disease and my $39.00 expected charge would be $139.00. Again, I received nothing more than a regular cleaning. After my initial visit, I had been sent to a periodontist for (needed) dental work. The periodontist, who was excellent, never told me I had periodontal disease and just requested I get normal cleaning on a regular basis. I feel sorry for people that continue to go to this practice as the only "excellent" part of this practice is their apparent ability to overcharge.

I didn't expect much between the damage and my body's history of difficulty healing. It wasn't easy to say the least but Dr.

never gave up. Hip graph to face resulted in an unexpected extended hospital stay and he came in over the weekend just to check on me. He was patient with my body scheduling next steps with extra time in between. He thought steps ahead (for the incase moments). My smile is back and better than I remember.

She's very meticulous in making it fit just right. Her personality is so kind and gentle that having work done is not something you would dread. She always wants things to be just right for you. She gives you options to choose from and never pressures you to do things. You just sort of know that she's looking out for you. She's a very experienced prosthodontics specialist looking for the best answer for you .

Dr.
Cedar Falls Dentists Provider Name Locked
perform all the procedures as expected; offered advises and follow-ups. He is open to questions and very professional. His staff is friendly as well. Billing is main concern; even with insurance, the inform me of the "expected" out of pocket, but when the bill arrives, the difference is significant and you end up paying much more.

Marvelous, Stupendous....Surprisingly Wonderful!!!! I went in to see Dr.
Cedar Falls Dentists Provider Name Locked
regarding a poorly done 5-6 yr. old crown from an other dentist, so I had much more concern in choosing the RIGHT dentist, for the next one in replacing it-this time! My fist contact of delight was with
Cedar Falls Dentists Provider Name Locked
on the phone. She spent the time needed to answer my questions, and made me feel important, and not rushed-I called more than once.

Next came the wonderful experience of Amber, (Dr.
Cedar Falls Dentists Provider Name Locked
's assistant) also spending much time with me & my questions, (& I always have many!) and not rushing me either. After reading all the reviews on Angie's List, and then his website, Dr.

FAR EXCEEDED ANY of my expectations! He spent so much time in teaching me about the newer E4d machine, & all involved, and all my concerns. I have NEVER been to such a fantastic dental office, with such a (complete) wonderful team!!! I can't wait to get my new crown, and get my cleaning by

! I'm told she is extremely thorough!!! YAY!



P.S. as I was leaving, I asked a very old gentleman about his experience here? He said that "it's the best he's EVER had!!" He added that, "I can't wait till the next tooth problem-so I can come back!" WOOO!! I know what he means!



Thank You guys! Jeannot G.
