Experience Does Matter With Dentistry at MOD Squad Dental

July 12, 2017

Example 1 of an implant placement to replace this front tooth #8 with Dr. Greg Friedman

Example 2 of a new patient we saw this week in the office with several implants including front teeth, #8, & #9

Often patients call our practice asking, “How much do you charge for dental implants”?  We, for the very reason illustrated in the two radiographs above do not quote fees over the phone.  My best advice to patients seeking a dental professional for minor or extensive dentistry is to do your research.

Do not just make your decision strictly from a quoted cost you received over the phone.  Experience does matter when it comes to dentistry.  From the materials used to the education of the dentist.  Just because a dentist claims to be a specialist for a particular procedure does not mean they are.  As proven in the above second radiograph completed by a “dental implant specialist”.  Use your online resources wisely.  Sites such as Yelp & Google are great tools to research a dentist and his/her practice.  But buyer beware!  “Just the other day I saw a “dental implant specialist” that had two Yelp accounts.  One with 2.5 stars and right next to it a new Yelp account under a different name with 5 stars for the same “dental implant specialist”, stated Dr. Friedman.  Both accounts do show next to each other when searching this particular practice.  This for example is something to be aware of and notice.

Our patient above has not or will not ever need a removable “flipper” or appliance at all during his implant process unlike other practices.  This puts our patients at ease and comfortable while going through the implant process.  At Mod Squad Dental, not only are our doctors looking for the implant placement to be functional but also aesthetically pleasing as if it were a real tooth.

If you have questions about replacing missing teeth or dental implants, call Mod Squad today for your complimentary consultation…

Because experience does matter!!!
