"I had been for cleanings and they were all very nice. Dr
removed 2 of my
teeth. The experience from start to finish" was positive. Dr
numbs topically before he gives the Novocain so the shots are pretty painless. He checks frequently to make sure the pain meds are working so that you experience no discomfort. I also had the gas to help
the pain. All of the staff were very nice and professional. I went to Dr
based on recommendation from my daughter - she had procedure done by him to remove permanent retainers and raved about how great he was. And she was right. Dr
explains everything, makes sure you understand, and tells you during the entire process what he is doing. Highly recommend Dr
and the staff at
.

"From the moment I arrived in the SmileBoston office in
,
I felt comfortable and well received. The front office" staff is friendly and welcoming. I waited about 5 minutes or less for my appointment with Dr.
. The first and subsequent appointments with Dr.
are amazing. He is an extremely caring and personable dentist, who works hard to make his patients happy. His knowledge base is outstanding and his work is perfection. He removed poorly done bonding that another dentist had put on a front tooth. The result was total perfection, which I never thought could happen. Overall, my experience with all of the staff and Dr.
is the best I have received in my lifetime! I highly, without reservation, recommend SmileBoston in
. The service is outstanding from routine care cleanings, to complicated restorations. I always leave with a perfect smile.

 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.

I initially had a good experience at Dr.
Southern Pines Dentists Provider Name Locked
's practice. But over the course of seeing him for two years there have been enough negative things that have happened to cause me to seek another dentist. I had three crowns replaced at one time(!). He also found that the bone around one of my teeth had deteriorated and it would need to be replaced. I was taken aback that so much work would need to be done. I checked with his billing specialist to find out how much my portion of all this (after my dental insurance had paid) would cost. Incredibly, she replied that it would cost "six thousand dollars". I was understandably stunned. She then informed me that she was "just kidding". I thought this was extremely inappropriate, and I still have difficulty understanding why a person in a supposedly professional position would do that to a customer/patient.

Getting this work involved multiple visits, which I understood. However, his practice refuses to make more than one or two appointments at a time for a patient. So after one step had finished, I had to make a brand-new appointment. There was always a delay involved because he keeps himself busy in what I am sure must be a very lucrative practice. Instead of coming back to see him in four weeks, I couldn't get an appointment until eight weeks from the last. This entire course of treatment ended up taking about five months when it should have taken more like three, in my opinion. If a process is going to take five visits, then five appointments should be scheduled at the outset. To me, that's a no-brainer.
When I asked him about this, he claimed that he was not aware of his office's scheduling practice. I told him that I found that hard to believe, given that it is his practice. To my surprise, he became defensive and asked me if I was accusing him of being a liar!
I also told two people that I wanted the crown to be gold rather than porcelain. Remarkably, a porcelain crown was ordered. A gold crown had to be reordered which caused additional delay with the work.
Aside from these issues, there was another problem. In my opinion, he does not pay as much attention to detail when he works on teeth as I think he should. This may be because he keeps himself so busy.
I felt like his office inundated me with phone calls and text message reminders of appointments. Some people might appreciate that, but I felt like I was being harassed by a marketing machine. He continues to try to get more and more patients, but he is too busy to see them in a timely fashion.

This is a very professional practice and I think the work done is excellent. I have been going to this practice for years and have never met anyone that has not been friendly and reassuring. I have a terrible fear of dental procedures from some horrible experiences many years ago. I still don't like having to have work done in my mouth but when I have to this is the office I want to have it done at. The office is immaculately clean which is a must in my opinion. I have never had to wait more than 5 minutes in the waiting room. Many of the staff have been with this practice as long as I have been going there which tells me it is a nice place for them to be as well which is reflected in their positive attitude.

If I have any suggestion to help frightened patients like myself it would be to not talk about things you plan on doing quietly behind me. What you are discussing about instruments and ways to do things with each other are frightening to me. I know you need to discuss these things but a quick reassurance and explanation to me would be helpful. This is not a complaint because I know you do your best to try to make me feel comfortable but I am such a ,"chicken", that I have trouble relaxing trying to hear what is next. Thank you for understanding my fears and always striving to make the dental experiences at your office the best possible.

He removed the spot from my mouth and set it for biopsy. He was very efficient with the surgery and did notify me of the results of the pathology. He referred me to another doctor to have the thing taken care of. I will not be using his referral as I have another surgeon selected at this time that is closer to my home. I believe his is just as confident. I did go to

and speak to the suggested surgeon but he was in agreement with my local surgeon who is just as confident and much closer to my home.

He referred me to an oral surgeon because he didn't like the looks of a dark spot he had found in the top of my mouth. It did turn out to be cancerous. I go every 6 months and he is very thorough. He is a very good dentist. He is not cheap but he is well worth every cent you pay him and my whole family goes to him.

The doctor argued about my request for my tooth to be pulled. She would talk over me when I talked. She even told me to shut up when I had questions. Her staff is very argumentative. They were not concerned for my well-being. they were late to the appointment. The experience was horrible.

Old crown came off. Dr
Southern Pines Dentists Provider Name Locked
got me in immediately and determined the crown could simply be reglued. In and out in 20 minutes. As always, he was pleasant, professional and candid about my dental needs. Staff is wonderful. Have found him to be readily available and accessible, even on his days off. He rsponds to emegency phone calls and once before came in on a weekend to open his office and tend to my tooth.

I generally am not one to gripe publicly, but I feel obliged to make this information available so that others may not have the same experience. My 72 year-old father went to

’s Lynnwood, WA location and paid upfront what he believed to be the full amount for full dentures (nearly $3,000). He was fitted for temporary dentures to allow swelling to decrease at which point he would return 3-6 months later to be fit for permanent dentures. A couple of months later,
