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?

My family and I have known Dr. Kim as our family dentist for 15 years. I am now 79 years young and having root canals redone, tooth extraction and 7 new crowns. This has been a very technical and tedious procedure over several visits. Each one lasting at least 3 hours. Dr. Kim has a surgical room with equipment that would rival a hospital operating room. The most expressive part of the practice is Dr. Kim himself. He is overly qualified so can not be called just a dentist. He is and has always continued going back to school to qualify in all the new procedures available. Dr. Kim is the only dentist that I will trust to do all the work he is now doing for me. His staff is so caring and professional. You have no fears in his office because they are practicing every form of sanitizing. The office is over seen by a special lady called Helen that goes out of her way to walk you through scheduling, insurance and followup. What ever your dental needs, feel safe and secure in Dr. Kim’s hands. The best part of my on going procedures is the care and concern to my comfort and well-being
I highly recommend Dr. Kim and his staff. All my friends that I recommended only have the highest of praise for him. In this day and age Dr. Kim is number on my list.
