" I had a dental implant done and had no problems at all. Staff and dentist was excellent. Good chair side manner so to speak, I think if you go to the dentist there" is some discomfort. Some people complain, and say its the dentist when they do not handle it well. Overall good experience. Very relaxed atmosphere. .

 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.

is a great dentist however,
Oelwein Dentists Provider Name Locked
and Barb... general office staff and wife/hygienist, respectively... in this office are so rude and have such a lack of
Oelwein Dentists Provider Name Locked
necessities in business, like courtesy and appropriate behavior for patient retention, etc. that it is a wonder they have any patients left at all. In a business such as dentistry where overhead is high it would seem as though an attempt would be made to retain patients like myself that have seen Dr.

for the better half of two decades but this is not the case and it is quite unfortunate for Dr.
Oelwein Dentists Provider Name Locked
in his practice. Call this office at your own risk... Or better yet save yourself the hassle and call one of the hundreds of other dentists in the metro area that may actually care about their new and long term patients. After twenty years seeing this dentist, a new hostile office temperature has solidified that my feet will never again enter that office. Life is too short to be treated like an insignificant number... Seek dental health elsewhere. If you decide to call this office, remember that you've been warned!

Dr. Piney came in, spoke with me, did a standard recall exam(looked at my teeth visually, and checked a couple areas, asked me what was new and how I was doing, (this took several minutes, he took the time to actually listen). After I was done he let me know everything still looked good (overall tooth and gum health) and told me to keep up the good work.

Overall I think
Oelwein Dentists Provider Name Locked
is good. Fancy office with LOTS of staff. I can feel a bit factory like.
But, staff seems friendly. I have had some dental work done there and so far so good. They were willing to do some adjustments to try to correct the "fit" of crown they put in. However, each time I go in I see a different dentist.

Prior to the above appointment, staff "forgot" to schedule me for this extraction and blamed it on "miscommunication." The doctor doesn't like to do extractions on teeth with curved roots, but the nearest oral surgeon that takes the insurance is 2 hours away.
Oelwein Dentists Provider Name Locked
always is in a hurry and her work suffers somewhat. She made a comment like, "an oral surgeon can do this faster than I can." She had to give me more local anesthesia because it was a big tooth and an uncomfortable ordeal.
I had to return because there was a large piece of bone stuck near the gum line. I wasn't even completely numb, but she just started picking the shard out.
This ":hurrisome" attitude made me feel like I was in the way, a nuisance. I have to use this provider because of my insurance.

Dr.
Oelwein Dentists Provider Name Locked
and his staff are true professionals that have created a warm and friendly environment. Despite my having been long overdue for a dentist appointment and cleaning (I had moved to the area over a year earlier but hadn't gotten to finding a dentist) they made me felt comfortable. All of the procedures were done well. Even my

tooth extraction was pretty "discomfort-free"!
