Choosing the Right Implant Provider
Choosing to move forward with dental implants is just the beginning of your journey. Now you must choose an implant provider. But don’t choose any dentist, pick a provider who is skilled and knowledgeable about dental implants.
Here are some helpful considerations when making your selection:
Since the dental implant procedure requires several visits, you will most likely want to select a specialist near where you live.
Your implant specialist should be able to thoroughly describe the process, including costs, and answer any questions you may have. Take a look at their office environment as well to see if you are comfortable there. Are the office staff pleasant and courteous? Do you leave feeling more knowledgeable and confident about your implant treatment plan?
Choose a dentist who specializes in dental implants, and ask about their experience, modern techniques, education, and history providing implants for patients. Look at reviews.
Ask your provider these questions:
- How do you stay up to date with the latest developments in the implant field?
- What associations or fellowships are you affiliated with?
- How many implants have you successfully placed over the years?
- How long do your dental implants last?
- Does your dental practice accept my dental insurance and is this procedure covered?

So glad I found Dr. Kim’s practice!
Don’t normally write reviews but I had my wisdom teeth taken out by Dr. Kim, and compared to other stories I’ve heard, I think I got really lucky in having him do the procedure. He explained everything to me clearly and thoroughly. He and his staff were extremely considerate, patient and professional. Also, the method he used made my healing process so quick. My sister’s wisdom teeth extraction with a different doctor (same procedure) took a week to heal and 2 weeks for the swelling to go down completely, but I was pretty much back to normal after 3 days. For my checkups/cleanings, the receptionists and hygienists provide good customer service and they’re friendly/easy to talk to. They’re also great at reaching out and reminding you of when to come in for your next appointment. So glad I found Dr. Kim’s practice!
