"Dr.
is a hands on dentist, cleaning teeth and evaluating your condition himself, not delegating those tasks to his hygenist. He communicates" clearly and explains clearly, informing you of any areas he is watching or any potential concerns. He is personable and responsive to my questions. I have been seeing him for a number of years and am very satisfied with his care. His staff is efficient and pleasant.

"When I arrived, I had my Dental Insurance Card, but I had left my driver's license at home; they made me go back and get it before they would see me, even though" I had my previous records (x-rays and narrative) from another dentist and my card with me which pretty well indicated who I was (dental records being a way of identifying people). The dentist was extremely rude and in a hurry as we wanted to begin his time off for vacation. He said he would contact my insurance company about my crowns since it involved the previous dentist. After several months, I didn't hear back from him. I called the office and they said that he hadn't done anything. I asked for a copy of my x-rays and the return of my previous records. They said they had my previous records, but couldn't give my x-rays until I signed a waiver. When I got the waiver in the mail, I called and asked why they didn't return my previous records, and they said they couldn't return them unless I signed the waiver, even though I brought them in myself. When I received a copy of my x-rays, I called and asked where the previous records were. Then after a day, they said they weren't allowed to give my the records that I had brought in myself - and that they had destroyed them because they were no longer relevant! A horrible experience and I wouldn't go there if you paid me.

 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.

Was not innudated with "needed" services suggestions - good basic care with evidence of competency in other dental services if I needed them. They discussed and gave me choices. In an older building with some signs of age: areas were very clean + appropriate for a medical practice. I felt comfortable on my visit.

When I arrived, I had my Dental Insurance Card, but I had left my driver's license at home; they made me go back and get it before they would see me, even though I had my previous records (x-rays and narrative) from another dentist and my card with me which pretty well indicated who I was (dental records being a way of identifying people). Dr. Saccaccio was extremely rude and in a hurry as we wanted to begin his time off for vacation. He said he would contact my insurance company about my crowns since it involved the previous dentist. After several months, I didn't hear back from him. I called the office and they said that he hadn't done anything. I asked for a copy of my x-rays and the return of my previous records. They said they had my previous records, but couldn't give my x-rays until I signed a waiver.

He's a great dentist. He was recommended to us by a friend. He has all the new technologies, has a great office and a fantastic staff. He's been around since the mid to late 1970s. He's moved into a new office since then. He has another dentist working with him, who is very good too. The hygienists and their assistants are very good. They're very good to get along with.

I was able to get an appointment for just a few days after my initial call. I was taken in right on time, but the exam room wasn't ready. They got me into another one in about 15 minutes. Full set of x-rays done by technician. She was professional and pleasant. Dr
Ozark Dentists Provider Name Locked
came in after about a 15 minute wait to review the results. She was quick, but thorough in explaining what was found, using the x-rays to show me where the work was needed. We agreed on a priority list for getting my issues handled. After about a 20 minute wait, another person came in and we reviewed the work needed. All costs were laid out and I was given referrals for other doctors to do some outside work. A follow up appointment was set for the next week to start my treatments. Be sure to check with the referred doctor about insurance. One of the outside doctors didn't take my insurance and I had to find another one to replace him. Overall, a nice experience.

he is very confidential. They are professional. I've been to a lot of places they didn't have a phone. there is a general understanding of clients. it all sounds ridiculous, they didn't know whats going on. It's embarrassing. Here there is understanding whats going on. they have a telephone. somebody is always at the desk. asking questions.

It was good- he's a good dentist. He did good work-it looks very good (the bridge is quite good but expensive). My husband had gone to him for several years and that's how I found him.
