"It went great. They explained everything before and after, called later that day to check on me, and were very nice throughout the entire experience. They even provided" music to listen to during the procedure. The office is very clean and everyone is very personable. This is the best place I have gone to so far. I would highly recommend.

 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.

and his staff are always friendly, professional and informative. The wait is usually minimal. The office is clean and comfortable, with a relaxed atmosphere.

By far the friendliest doctor office visit I have ever experienced. From the minute I enter their office everyone was very friendly and genuine. I have always wondered why offices in Wichita seem so aloof and acted as though they were inconvenienced by your walking in the door. I did not get this feeling from this office. The appointment went very well and the technology used to show the condition of my teeth along with suggestions for how to get the best out of my daily routine were very useful and more than the usual, 'see you in six months.'

First appointment took a long time because they do so much to you but well worth it. They take all kinds of X-rays and pictures then the dentist looks at all of them and finds any problems you have and addresses them. I got my teeth cleaned and I am getting a crown in two weeks. I will stay with this dentist!

It went very well. The doctor had to contact my former dental practice to get records from a previous year. I appreciated the time taken and concern for the correct diagnosis.

He is excellent. We like him a lot. He is very good at what he does. You can trust that he won't do more than you need. He will give you tips on your overall dental health. My husband and daughter go to him as well. We have been going to him for at least 10 years.

I chipped a molar and upon examination, it was decided that the best long range approach would be to prepare the tooth and a second tooth for a bridge that covered an existing gap. Painless and completed within 4 weeks.

Dr.
Elgin Dentists Provider Name Locked
is awesome. Knowledgeable, kind, gentle, and LISTENS! He has been helping me figure out an issue with a crown I've been having troubles with for several years. He does not think I'm making up my pain or discomfort. He believes me and listens to me, which is far from what my previous dentist did. He explains things very thoroughly and gives options for solutions. I would highly recommend him! His office is downtown, so parking is a pain.
