"On the first appointment both my son and I were nervous at first but then Dr
assured and explained the procedure in detail. Staff" was friendly and professional. Day of surgery his assistant went over procedure (do's and
'ts after surgery). Dr. Fox greeted and review filed. I stepped over to the lobby and within 10-15 minutes his assistant informed that the procedure was successful and just needed to wait for the anesthesia effects to wear off. For the remaining of the day he was find did not need any medication for pain. That treatment and attention my son and I received were excellent .

"We had just moved to the area and didn't have a dentist yet. I had a tooth bothering me that my previous dentist had said would need a root canal at some point." A business associated recommended Dr.
in Bluffton. I was able to get an appointment quite quickly; within a few days. The wait time in the lobby wasn't bad, and I did see Dr.
almost immediately after I was taken back to the examination area. He thoroughly investigated the tooth and those around it, took an x-
, and confirmed that I did need a root canal. He referred me to a local endodontist, and after the procedure he filled the tooth cavity. I was pleased with his treatment and plan to return as a regular patient.

Oral surgeons

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.

 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.

Teeth extraction went well. I was comfortable during the procedure. I had a light anesthesia, The process took about 1/2 hour or less and I left his office with medication for discomfort or pain. I went back after about 2 weeks, and the healing process was coming along well. After a few more weeks, I was recommended to another dentist that specialized in making my dentures. De. Clsudio and his staff were all so caring and helpful through the entire process from beginning to end. I would recommend Dr.

The procedure went well. I did not have as much pain as expected. Things proceeded as I had been instructed. My follow-up appointment, in two weeks, went well - the biopsy was negative.

The assistants gave very detailed instructions on the procedures/possible issues. I had called in advance and got an estimate, and I was able to get a ball-park figure over the phone. The estimate was $1000 lower than what my dental practice had quoted, and they were able to get me in within a week (instead of months!) The estimate was pretty much spot-on to the final price I paid, even with needing a secondary visit to actually get the implant.
Everything in the office is smoothly run, instructions are clear, and everything went well.

Best dentist office I have ever visited! No pushy salesman tactics trying to get you to buy stuff you don't want or need, just courteous and friendly service. I never thought such a place existed.

What a compassionate doctor Dr
Paola Oral Surgeons Provider Name Locked
is! Do you know what his practice does? They use the freezing spray on your arm before they stick you with the IV, so you don't feel anything! Dr
Paola Oral Surgeons Provider Name Locked
was very gentle and reassuring during the whole process, and I felt more and more relaxed and safe. (Yes, the IV drugs helped with that, too.) I felt no pain, and after the surgery I went home and went to bed. My husband fed me Jello chocolate pudding and did all the icky work of changing out the gauze pads, and I was fine in next to no time. So I think Dr

and his staff are God's gift to chicken-hearted dental patients, and I would heartily recommend them to anyone.
