How to Find the Best Dentist for Implants | Dr. Parsa Zadeh


okay doctor zadeh so today we’re talking about dental implants and the first question I have for you is how would someone go about choosing the right implant dentist for their needs excellent question I think the best place to start is to ask around among your friends and family if anyone has had that one client and how their experience has been and then do some homework I mean obviously these days everyone has to Google to search about you know implant dentistry implant dentistry and they also ultimate test would be your interview of the dentist so make an appointment to the dentist that the preliminary work shows is qualified to do your implant go there and asking questions that you have directly and see how confidently he answers if he starts talking about implant in third tense like he will do this he will do that then immediately need to ask who is the person who’s doing the implant in my opinion you must choose a dentist that places and restores the implant himself or if you are interviewing for a dentist for placement of implants it must be the actual dentist who is doing the implant the offices that bring someone half a day or one day a month to you know place a few implants and go in my opinion are not the best place for you to get your implant needs met so how do you choose your implant dentist ask around look them up on the Google but most importantly go there have a visit with them interview them ask them questions directly and the most important question is are you the person who’s actually doing is going to do the work stay away from those that say no what we’re going to bring in specialists to do this so I’m going to send you somewhere else so you’re interviewing a surrogate and that does not give you much information go to the actual person ask your questions okay so would you say there’s any certain types of questions you should ask the professional in general the best is ask the person how long they’ve been doing this and what is their success how’s their success and ask them to show you pictures okay if somebody’s been doing certain things for awhile this day and age they must have bunch of pictures to show you they should be able to show you x-rays pictures in my office anytime a person asks a question we have either a patient before them or after them that have had similar work and we can say hey it such and such as that and often times if they want to speak to that person we go ask permission from the patient that hey the next-door gentleman is considering doing the work that you’ve got done is it okay if he says hi to you and ask you a question so my point is that an office who does a certain procedure enough that you should feel confident for them to do it for you should have a lot of samples in print in x-rays and in person to show you they’re similiar work so that actually leaves my next question is there any type of experience or certain educational background that we should be looking for know what you should be looking for is as I said the years of experience the dentist has had in the field and how much how frequently do they do this procedure and no implant dentistry can be learned on many residences outside of the formal university setups and within the university setups there is really no advantage of one over the other in fact most of the dentists around my age that we have graduated about 30 years ago we learned in time ministry only to those residences which were financed by implant manufacturers even now I’m here to say that all the implant education in universities all financed and funded and carried on most of the time by implant manufacturers so in terms of quality of education what people during university residences and learn and what others learn from the same manufacturers outside of that setup is really no different it’s just a matter of how much the dentist has spent time practicing that and how much is an effort mastering that scale okay so is there anything a patient can do that would guarantee them the results they’re looking for with the dental implants obviously no dentist, surgeon or doctor is going to guarantee the result because it has to do with the response of the body and in dentistry and implant surgery a lot of it has to do with how well the patient follows the instructions after surgery but you can ask the dentist that do you guarantee this thing works and you know sometimes they will sometimes most of the time they work and sometimes they don’t the thing is a confident surgeon will say that you know if you follow my instruction if it doesn’t work for some reason I will do it again for you because the confident surgeon knows the chance that that happens it’s very very minimal and if it happens so what I mean we’ll do it and I’ve done implants over number of times and now most of the times is because patients didn’t follow some of the instructions or something I may have overlooked in our patient history and risk factors but that’s not a problem I think it’s important for patients to have assurance and to have peace of mind that now they’re in now that they are investing thousands of dollars for a procedure at least they will have the desired outcome when they go through the procedure
