One of the most frequently asked questions by patients is about Clear Choice dental implant centers, their quality of care, and reputation among dental professionals. Here is what one of the readers asked: “There are really mixed reviews on the quality of care received from Clear Choice Dental Implants. A lot of people state that they feel they were “sold” on the treatment, and that the care itself was not great. Clear Choice Implant Center heavily spends millions of dollars per year marketing all-on-four, teeth-in-a-day seen on TV and heard on radio stations throughout the U.S.
What patients are saying about corporate Implant Centers. They were met by a sales person and were pushed hard to sign up for the treatment and pay a deposit. They were not given any treatment options except what they do which is mostly all-on-4, teeth-in-a-day treatment.
There are reports that the centers are very corporate-like and don’t offer an atmosphere for a true multi-specialty team approach. Doctors may be driven into offering all extractions and all implants with few other options. Also because of lack of internal resources for comprehensive dentistry, following completion of patients’ treatment, patients are referred back to their general dentist for cleaning and check ups. . This is of course not a good idea when it comes to continuity of care and taking responsibility for a patient’s care over time.
As a privative practice Implant specialist these corporate implant centers are actually doing a huge favor to potential implant patients on informing them on the possibility of full mouth reconstruction teeth-in-a-day, all-on-four implant treatment. One major difference between corporate implant centers like clear choice and private practice implant specialist is price! Who do you think pays for those millions of dollars spend on newspaper, radio and TV ads every year? The patient of course. Private Practice Implant Specialists can do the same teeth-in-day implant reconstruction for thousands less.
I suggest all patients ask the right questions when choosing any dentist for their implant care and make decisions based on proper criteria. After all, the choice may not be so clear!
