is an amazing doctor, really gives you his best advice and takes his work very seriously. He explains every single detail to his patients," even takes photos to show you what's going on and how it can be addressed. Our family including grand parents have been using him for years and are very pleased.

-Joe V.

"First off let me say I'm never going back to this dentists office after my hygienist left...
was the ONLY reason I frequented this dental" office. These comments have been on my mind during the time I visited this office and long after I stopped going. 1) Dr.
is NOT PROFESSIONAL in the least, when doing fillings or whatever I needed the dentist for, she and her helper would make comments or talk above you as though you were not even there. One comment that I found particularly bothersome, was one that she made about her husband using his Doctor's coat to get out of tickets when he is speeding. She even had the nerve to suggest she should do the same thing the next time she was pulled over saying that a patient was experiencing a dental emergency. Due to lack of attention being paid, my mouth was either overly numb or I didn't get enough but I just wanted to get the heck out of the office so I took the discomfort and pain along with it. 2) My last visit was scheduled on 11/12/14 @ 11:30 AM with
, my hygienist. I'd only seen her at that facility and didn't want to see anyone else. They lied to me at the time I was scheduled for my cleaning and told me that
asked someone to start off my cleaning because she was running late (
was already no longer at the facility by then.) The hygienist that cleaned my teeth complained during my entire cleaning about how she'd broken up with her boyfriend and the only thing she cared about was she wanted some sort of cranberry dressing. This cleaning went on for over an hour, and the entire time it was nothing but dressing dressing dressing! After that cleaning, my mouth and
hurt so badly that I couldn't eat for the remainder of the day. That was it for me... I never went back. 3) The last straw for my husband was this March. if I remember correctly. The office set up an appointment for my husband, he arrived early for his appointment, and they left him in the waiting room for over an hour as they tried to verify insurance. Apparently they hadn't done that BEFORE the visit, and they realized that the insurance would not pay for the visit because it hadn't been more than 6 months since the last cleaning. He had taken the day off for the appointment, so he lost a day of pay, and wasted more than an hour sitting in their waiting room. He didn't get an apology or anything, just notice that he could have the cleaning if he wanted to foot the bill. The disclaimers the office gives you if that if you don't notify them in advance of cancelling an appointment you are charged a fee, he should have been compensated for his time as they expect you to do for theirs.

Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic, or aesthetic, dentistry focuses on improving the overall appearance of your teeth. Cosmetic treatments include any technique that involves whitening, restoring or straightening the teeth by a dentist or orthodontist.

Angie's Answers

 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.

Cosmetic Dentistry reviews in Morehead City


I've been going there for three years now. I absolutely love them. They're unbelievable. They're the Cadillac of dentistry. They do everything but oral surgery. They referred me to an oral surgeon and he was phenomenal too. I've never been to a dentist's office like theirs. They

You can watch TV or have headphones. It's a smooth transition. They wear walkie-talkies so they'll call the front desk and like ask them to tell the dentist I'll be ready in seven minutes.

and his staff are great. Very caring and also funny, which helps keep the mood light. He won't do unnecessary procedures, and is great about monitoring and suggesting dental work as a preventative measure when needed. Never a long wait in the office. Hygienists are good too.

Where do I start?... Dr.
Morehead City Cosmetic Dentists Provider Name Locked
is the best dentist I have ever encountered. He is without a doubt, the kindest, gentlest dentist there is. He is professional, thorough and provides the utmost care a patient can ask for. I would recommend him to anyone who needs ANY type of oral work done. His staff is very professional, and compliments his services. When I first made an appointment, I was somewhat apprehensive, as I needed to have extractions done. Once in his office, I was instantly put at ease, and had the procedure completed without any pain whatsoever. Dr.

During my extended wait, I overheard Dr.

Anyway, during my extended wait I looked around the room and noticed trash on the floor and the armrest on the chair I was sitting in had a hole worn through it. The room had a very dirty feel to it. I left before we could even get into pricing. I didn’t intend to leave a review but after Dr.

took it upon himself to call my orthodontist to discuss my appointment information with him, I decided this review needed to be written. I did sign the HIPAA forms that said to not discuss my appointment with anyone so I do believe that was a HIPAA violation.

Morehead City Cosmetic 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!
- Bren F.

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.
