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 We, for the very reason illustrated in the two radiographs above do not quote fees over the phone.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.

Because experience does matter!!!

He is very tall but has worn his teeth very flat. With these amazing temporary veneers, there is no guessing what his final porcelain veneers will look like. We will be tweaking a couple edges & curves in the finals. We can not wait to share those photos soon. Remember a smile should be like a fingerprint…each different…never the same!

Featured Smile of the Week…
You may recognize this face as the amazing 3rd baseman that played for the Padres, but to us he is one of our fun loving patients featured this week. His existing smile was worn giving him what appeared to be a reverse smile line. He & Dr. Friedman discussed upper 10 porcelain restorations restoring the length of his teeth and giving him a natural smile. What a great result and smile. Put him in coach!!

When this patient was ready for her smile make-over she knew exactly who she wanted for her dentist because Dr. Friedman has already restored the smile of her grandmother, uncle, and other family members. This patient did not particularly like her smile and wanted the space closed between her front two teeth. This patient also had a very strong muscle (frenum) that caused her front two teeth to separate and restricted her upper lip from raising when she smiled.
During her complimentary smile consultation, Dr. Friedman discussed braces with a surgical procedure (frenectomy) to release the muscle above her two front teeth. The patient and mother were not interested in braces and wanted porcelain for her smile. Dr. Friedman completed the frenectomy along with miner gingivectomy (removal of extra gum tissue), and placed upper 8 porcelain veneers giving the patient a natural beautiful smile.

This patient visited Dr. Friedman & MOD Squad Dental for his cosmetic consultation. The patient had existing restorations on his upper 10 teeth in his smile line that was placed several years ago. The material used for these existing restorations was a material that stained and discolored over time. The patient wished for a brighter, whiter, smile that represented his fun loving, outgoing personality. This case was on the difficult side of smile make-over’s considering there were 3 anterior implants involved. Together Dr. Friedman and the patient decided on upper 10 porcelain restorations correcting color, size, and shape.
“Dr. Friedman is a perfectionist, who was not satisfied until my teeth were up to his high standards. I am very happy with his work and have a great smile! His office staff were very professional and pleasant. Thank you Dr. Friedman!” stated the patient.

We simply adore this patient. Lena has been a patient of Dr. Friedman and MOD Squad Dental for over 14 years. She has dreamed of a smile make-over for many years but chose to take care of her cavities, & maximizing her dental insurance benefits before tackling her smile. When her dental health was on point, it was time for her smile. She was thrilled. Dr. Friedman placed upper 8 porcelain veneers and also whitened Lena’s lower teeth to match. As you can see from her above quote……”She cannot even stand herself:)”
