"Dr.
perform all the procedures as expected; offered advises and follow-ups. He is open to questions and very professional. His staff is friendly" as well. Billing is main concern; even with insurance, the inform me of the "expected" out of pocket, but when the bill arrives, the difference is significant and you end up paying much more.

" Marvelous, Stupendous....Surprisingly Wonderful!!!! I went in to see Dr.
regarding a poorly done 5-6 yr. old crown from an other dentist," so I had much more concern in choosing the RIGHT dentist, for the next one in replacing it-this time! My fist contact of delight was with
on the phone. She spent the time needed to answer my questions, and made me feel important, and not rushed-I called more than once. Next came the wonderful experience of Amber, (Dr.
's assistant) also spending much time with me & my questions, (& I always have many!) and not rushing me either. After reading all the reviews on Angie's List, and then his website, Dr.
FAR EXCEEDED ANY of my expectations! He spent so much time in teaching me about the newer E4d machine, & all involved, and all my concerns. I have NEVER been to such a fantastic dental office, with such a (complete) wonderful team!!! I can't wait to get my new crown, and get my cleaning by
! I'm told she is extremely thorough!!! YAY! P.S. as I was leaving, I asked a very old gentleman about his experience here? He said that "it's the best he's EVER had!!" He added that, "I can't wait till the next tooth problem-so I can come back!" WOOO!! I know what he means! Thank You guys! Jeannot G.

 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.

Dr.
Livingston Dentists Provider Name Locked
is a wonderful caring dentist. He goes the extra mile to make sure you are comfortable and pain free. He did a personal follow up after the procedure. His staff is delightful and very helpful. His dental hygienist is very personable and makes for a pleasant (almost fun) visti! I have been to a number of dentists over the years and I would have to rank this one as one of my top 2. High praise indeed!

The staff were very courteous and helpful to me and my children. They were kind and explained everything that they were doing. The clinic manager was very helpful with showing me different routes that I can take to take care of one of my kid's problem teeth. I will be returning with the kids and will be recommending their services to everyone that I know.

We are new to the area. Dr

gave me options on a couple of places the tech thought might need attention. But mainly made me comfortable with "let's wait and check status in 6". I recommended him to my husband and to adult daughter.

I take my daughter to Tacoma because of the insurance that she has, there is no local dentist that accepts her insurance. They can be difficult to deal with. I didn't like their Silver
Livingston Dentists Provider Name Locked
office at all. I went to the
Livingston Dentists Provider Name Locked
in Silver
Livingston Dentists Provider Name Locked
and after you have got your work there you sit there for an hour before they get your bill together and I finally got mad and I drive too far now and went to the other office. They are a lot better but I get the impression that they are honestly just going to drag out things so that they keep getting more and more office visits. The things that could have been done or should have been done in one visit, they will put half of it to the next visit so you end up going several times. They are not terrible; the one in Silver
Livingston Dentists Provider Name Locked
is terrible. The staff was pretty nice. I have to say they do okay. They have done some stupid things like they put in a temporary filling while my daughter had braces on and then it fell out before they got ready to put in the permanent one, just stupid things like if it is going to be a year then why would you put in a temporary instead of putting in a real filling which would stay there. They wanted to take off all the wires from the braces and stuff, it is a filling, it is a hole, you take it off, put in the filling and you put the wire back on, it takes 3 hours and then it takes 3 hours. They will do something half way and then they say 'oh, look it fell out, oops', I don't like the ‘oops’ part.

It went well overall, despite my daughter fighting Dr
Livingston Dentists Provider Name Locked
as usual. Mild sedative used as always. I think it would be good to give her 45 minutes before begining treatment, after sedative is given to allow it to be more effect, next time. We love Dr

I went in June and saw a new hygienist who instead of providing periodontal maintenance wanted to do deep cleaning. We discussed her measurements which were completely different than any previously given and the dentist concurred with the hygienist' findings. At this time our appointment time had ended. I had determined that I would be changing dentists at this point because I felt I was being rolled. I have since gone to a new dentist whose measurements were consistent with those prior to the June appointment thus I do not need deep cleaning at this time. Additionally I shared the written hygienist scoring system with the new dentist and he was appalled at the way disparaging remarks were made toward "uncooperative" patients. Most unprofessional. Even though I did not receive periodontal maintenance in June, the office of Dr.
Livingston Dentists Provider Name Locked
billed the insurance company for that procedure. For two months their office has been dragging their feet in clearing up this claim. There seems to be difficulty with intraoffice communication as the right hand does not know what the left is doing. Specifically, the office manager seems to be, in my opinion, the source of the problem.

Dr.
Livingston Dentists Provider Name Locked
in the BEST in the business!! He is a wonderful person and an excellent dentist. I would not go to anyone else.
I was in dire straights when I first visited Dr.
Livingston Dentists Provider Name Locked
in October 2012. I had had a lot of subpar dental work done elsewhere and was in constant pain. At my appointment, Dr.
Livingston Dentists Provider Name Locked
examined my teeth and provided me with detailed written assessment of how to cure my dental problems. The first step was to get my
Livingston Dentists Provider Name Locked
back into shape. As part of that process, he referred me to an amazing periodontist for a couple different gum surgeries. I loved my periodontist and she did amazing work.
After my
Livingston Dentists Provider Name Locked
were healthy, Dr.
Livingston Dentists Provider Name Locked
was able to focus on the second step of the process which entailed replacing all 8 of my ill fitting crowns with properly fitting crowns. Dr.
Livingston Dentists Provider Name Locked
is a master prosthodontist. He is a perfectionist and that is why he is so good. As each new crown went on, my pain began to disappear and by the time he did the last one, my mouth was in the best shape it has been in for years. No more pain!!!
I now go to his office 4 times a year for cleanings and maintenance. My teeth and mouth are healthy again and I am forever grateful. I was blessed to find such a an amazing dentist. I recommend him to anyone who has more complicated dental issues or is in pain as well as anyone looking for just annual checkups.

Well. What can you say about a cleaning? Everyone is very nice, they have all the latest gadgets, and they know what they are doing. I like that they are willing to work with me on a long term plan and only do the work that is needed.
