"I have been going to Dr.
for a number of years. His practice was recommended by my sister. He has done a lot of work to address poor dental" work done by previous dentists. His staff is awesome. If you don't have any dental insurance, he is on the expensive side, but does quality work and will not settle for things not being right.

-Judith J.

"They're always very professional and personable and they know who I am, my family goes there as well. They're fantastic about little things where it doesn't" fit right or feel right, they fit me in and are always willing to work with me. It's like gosh I don't mind going to the dentist! It's like a fun place to go. I've been getting crowns and maintenance cleaning since the 80's, they just always do very good work.

 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.

Dentistry reviews in Van Horne


They told me I needed a root canal twice, the root canal doctor told me that I didn't need a root canal and that the tooth was fine, he even said "I would take that tooth out and put in my own mouth". I was told by the oral surgeon that if my tooth wasn't hurting then I didn't need to have it done, he took an X-

to double check and said that I wouldn't need the root canal unless my
Van Horne Dentists Provider Name Locked
tooth was hurting, I still had to pay the $95 consultation fee despite nothing be done, I do understand that the oral surgeon's time is valuable and he came in on a Saturday for the consultation, but the dentist had told me that I needed to have this work done. If they had never told me I needed to have the root canal or an extraction, I wouldn't have came in to the see oral surgeon in the first place. I had called for prices and the office seems to always have different girls working and the office can't seem to keep their stories straight, when I called to set up the appointment and get prices the information they had given me, wasn't the same as what the told me when I went in today. My only major issue with this office is all the misinformation, the dental hygienist here are all very nice and I like the office environment as well. I've been going here for years and would just like everyone to be on the same page and the information to be the same when I speak with anyone at the office, opposed to consistently receiving misinformation.

Dr Zeppelin is the worst dentist ever! I had an appointment to install a dental crown. He didn't pay any attention during the procedure of making my tooth ready for the crown and most of drilling was done by his very young assistant, an African-American young lady. He was talking to his another colleague about his daughter loving blueberry! while the young assistant was drilling (ruining!) my tooth. At the end, he put a temp crown and asked me to come back in two weeks to install the real crown.
When I got home, I felt a terrible pain in my tooth for a few days. Then, I called them and made another appointment. This time, he said my tooth's root has been damaged and I need to do a root canal. He also said that he cannot do it himself. They called to another place and made an appointment there. When he was taking the temporary crown off, he cut my lip! I was in a lot of pain and drove to the other place to do the root canal. Then, figured out that the new place doesn't accept my insurance!
Long story short, his incompetence caused me a lot of pain and hundreds of dollars. I asked him for reimbursement and he refused. I tried to

him but I am too busy and lawyers said that I will end up paying more to lawyers than what I have already lost. And, I'm sure Dr Zeppelin already knew that.

I recently moved to Georgia from Florida and needed to find a dentist who is located close to my home. Not having a close network of friends or coworkers, I relied on Angie's List and found Dr.

's office. It was 2 miles from my house. Before I made an appt. I drove by the office to see how it appeared. I was very impressed. It is very big and modern. All of their equipment is top notch. They have three front desk assistant's to assist patients. Right then I spoke with one young lady and set an appt. for the next week. I received full x-rays, a cleaning by the hygienist and met with the dentist. He went over my x-rays and cleaning and gave a personal check of my mouth. He said everything was perfect and they would like to see me again in six months. I felt very comfortable with everyone in the office and I'm glad I found them.

I called the office right away and they were able to work me in by the afternoon. Dr.

I refused xrays before the dentist exam and they refused treatment without xrays. I specifically asked if they would just provide the cleaning and exam and then tell me if xrays are recommended. They refused. This was not explained when I made the appointent. This is a financially-driven policy and I won't return.

I have been going to Dr.

for about 20 years. I trust Dr.
Van Horne Dentists Provider Name Locked
. I appreciate that during her consults she identifies areas of concern on "watch list", rather than just immediately recommending special treatments. I also appreciate she recognizes the difference between medically necessary and aesthetic. If a filling is stained and cannot be cleaned to look right, I want option to have it replaced. My last two fillings have been replaced in 10 minutes following cleaning and did not require numbing/drilling -- I appreciate this convenience of not having to schedule a new appointment.
She has a professional admin staff for billings and dental hygiene staff for cleanings. I especially like

who does a good job being gentle while cleaning and trying to educate without scolding.
