A letter to Dental Implant Patients & Providers

Dear Visitors,

    After more than 40 years of practice as an oral surgeon, it is my opinion that a successful dental implant represents a breakthrough akin to a miracle in dental care. To achieve this “ miracle” successful dental implants must have a no-rejection tissue acceptance and a biological integration into the jaws that results in a long symptom free “ dental life” of comfort, pleasing esthetics, and efficient use….which makes dental implant natural tooth replacement both the greatest service a dentist can render to a patient….and the most difficult dental service for a dentist to consistently successfully deliver. This is especially true for dentists who attempt to “ do” dental implants without the specialized training and clinical experience critical for proper tooth implant treatment management and long tern tooth implant viability.

To improve the public’s access to competent dental implant treatment, www.toothimplants.com is online as a direct link to the qualifications and contact information in the web pages of the oral surgeons and restorative dentists in every American community who can demonstrate the training, continuing education and case experience necessary to provide successful dental implant surgical and restorative treatment to the patients who need them. In order to provide this assurance… all dental implant surgeons and restorative dentists registered on toothimplants.com must meet the following professional criteria:

  • Professional Graduate ( Dental School) degree
  • Documented post graduate dental implant surgical and/or restorative instruction and continuing education.
  • Certified or eligible for certification by the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery ( for Oral Surgeons only )
  • Minimum of 50 Dental Implants successfully placed and/or restored info
  • Valid state license to practice dentistry and/or oral surgery

The “Getting Started” link below is basic dental implant treatment information arranged to simplify a complex subject for the general public…. It briefly describes how dental implant treatment, initiated with a consultation. is then organized, managed and delivered.
