This is some blog description about this site
The new www.dental-implants.com site is now live and we would like a little help troubleshooting the site and getting it to work perfectly. I would appreciate it very much if people would go to the site and register as patients or doctors so that we can see if everything is working. There are no charges or obligations to any of you who register.
In the meantime, I am constantly working on the site, adding material and fine tuning. I rfeally hope you like it but I would appreciate the feedback whether pro or con...
In 1984, the modern dental implant concept was introduced to North America by Dr. P. I. Brånemark of Sweden. His research and design produced an elegant dental implant system which boasted up to a 98% success rate for patients who were missing their teeth. Since that time, there has been a huge amount of research and development with dental implants and the net result can sometimes be very confusing for the patients (and even the dentists). Couple this with the amount of advertising to promise things like “teeth in an Hour” and “Same Day Teeth”, the patient gets lost in a quagmire of claims and bravado that would leave anyone confused as to who on should see to get these types of advanced dental procedures.
The problem can sometimes be solved by asking your general dentist for a recommendation for dental implant placement and restoration. More often, this approach is complicated by the fact that the Generalist might not be well versed in these techniques and might not know who is really adept in this area. There are on-line referral services, but these, to date, only recommend dentists who pay them and there is absolutely no other qualifying procedures!
Enter dental-implants.com… Yes, our dentists do pay to be listed on this site, but the difference here is that they have to be totally qualified before they are allowed to do so. We look at their education and training and we examine their experience in this area of dentistry very carefully to determine if they meet our standards. We may even do on site visits to experience for ourselves how these dentists interact with their patients! We are very thorough about qualifying each dentist who appears on this site and our intention is to help direct you to someone who has the training and experience to provide you with a great outcome.
Finding a qualified dentist to place and restore your dental implants is the first step that each patient must deal with in the quest to replace missing or damaged teeth. A Dental Specialist with lots of training and experience will insure that your implant experience is successful and long lasting. Referral Services do exist, but they have no means of qualifying the dental practitioner other than collecting a fee for the services. This does nothing to insure that the patients actually get the best care.
Dental-Implants.com qualifies each and every dentist that we list as a potential provider for you. We interview each dentist. We verify their training and experience as well as investigating their present licensing. In many cases, we might actually visit their dental offices and observe the working of their dental practice and the interactions of their staff. In the end, we give you a definitive picture of each dental practitioner and what he or she might provide for you so that you have a place to start with your plan to restore your teeth with dental implants. And, the best part, this service is totally free to patients.
