Dr. Hamid Ryan Kazemi lists 8 questions for finding the right dental implant dentists

  1. 1. 8 Questions Patient Should Ask When Looking For A Dental Implant Dentist In this report, Dr. Hamid Ryan Kazemi, Dentist / Oral Surgeon from Bethesda, MD, lists 8 questions every patient should ask when searching for the right dentist for their dental implant needs. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. What is your specialty? Only oral surgeons and periodontists receive formal implant surgery training in accredited residency programs; some prosthodontists may also have advanced surgical training, but less common. Caution: An “Implantologist” is not a recognized and accredited specialty nor does it indicate proper training. What is the extent of your training in implant surgery? Ask specifically the names of the courses, dates, durations, and who sponsored them. Search these courses and see if they are legitimate programs endorsed or supported by professional associations. How many dental implants have you placed? A specialist or any skilled surgeon has placed hundreds if not thousands of implants. They do these procedures day-in and day-out. Question their qualifications if they have only placed a few of them in the past few months or year!!! Do you work with any specialists? Even if a dentist places some dental implants, they almost always work with specialists in their area; Ask if it’s OK for you to speak with them and get a different perspective. It’s your right. May I speak to other patients about their experience? Personal testimonials are very valuable and meaningful. You can also read online reviews specifically for their implant work. Ask the assistants and receptionists about dental implants (how they work, how long it takes, what are the steps, etc); If they can not answer your questions or defer you constantly to the dentist, then they most likely do not perform many of them! May I request brochures, supporting articles, before & after photos, and other detailed information. A practice with focus on dental implants will have all of these readily available. No need to look for it!!! If you hear or observe the following, be cautious: • “This is an easy one, I can handle it”………It almost never is…that simple! • Dental implant sales person in the office during your treatment! You can guess why they are there!!! • ‘The lone star’……A dentist who seems to know everything and do everything!!! See www.facialart.com for more information
