FOR REFERRING DENTISTS

For Referring Dentists

ClearChoice Dental Implant Centers provide comprehensive treatment and care services to dental implant patients across the U.S. While most patients come directly to ClearChoice for their treatment services as a result of advertising, ClearChoice also works with referring dentists to provide specific implant related services required by their patients.

Here are the most frequently asked questions by local dentists about ClearChoice Centers.

What is a ClearChoice Dental Implant Center?

ClearChoice Dental Implant Centers are full service dental implant treatment centers where experienced specialists deliver a wide spectrum of dental implant treatment services all at a high standard of care. Treatment is delivered using a team approach, including oral surgeons to place the implants, prosthodontists to replace the teeth, and master lab technicians to manufacture the prostheses. We have an on-site dental implant laboratory, as well as on-site 3D CAT Scan imaging services, to deliver high quality care that is also convenient for the patient.

How will a ClearChoice Center affect my practice?

When a ClearChoice Dental Implant Center opens, overall consumer awareness of dental implants rises, along with implant demand. This is due to the significant advertising we do in the market. You may expect your patients to ask more questions about dental implants, creating an opportunity for you to grow your practice.

What services does a ClearChoice Dental Implant Center provide?

ClearChoice focuses only on dental implant treatment services, including single, multiple, and full arch implant cases. ClearChoice Dental Implant Centers have particular expertise in immediate function procedures, such as the All-on-4 procedure for replacing a full arch of missing teeth. ClearChoice Dental Implant Centers perform more full arch implant procedures than any other implant dentist or group in the U.S.

What clinical research is there to support the procedures used at ClearChoice Dental Implant Centers?

The All-on-4 procedure is the culmination of the pioneering research and work of many well-known dentists and implant professionals from around the world.

ClearChoice Dental Implant Centers have performed more All-on-4 procedures than any other individual or group in the U.S., and have experienced success rates on implants in the 96% plus range. For those few implants that have failed, ClearChoice specialists have been able to replace them, achieving a 100% success ratio with the prostheses.

More information on the research supporting the All-on-4

Have ClearChoice clinicians published any papers or research related to the implant dentistry performed in the ClearChoice Dental Implant Centers?

Drs. Ole Jensen and Mark Adams have had multiple papers related to advances in the All-on-4 technique published in the Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery including:

A Technical and Biomechanical Note for All-on-4 Management of Severe Maxillary Atrophy

All on 4 Treatment of the Highly Atrophic Mandible with the Mandibular V-4

Do ClearChoice Dental Implant Centers provide dental treatment services other than dental implants?

ClearChoice Dental Implant Centers do not perform routine dental procedures unless they are directly related to an implant treatment case. If patients need standard dental work (such as cleanings, fillings, crowns, bridges, root canals, periodontal work, etc.) we refer them to other qualified dentists or specialists. ClearChoice does, however, perform additional dental work that may be necessary in handling an implant case in order to provide a complete dental solutionĀ for the patient.

Do ClearChoice Dental Implant Centers deliver quality care to the patients?

Absolutely! ClearChoice doctors are experienced specialists. With few exceptions, oral surgeons place all implants and prosthodontists place all teeth. The ClearChoice specialists practice in a modern facility, including advanced 3D CAT Scan imaging equipment and an on-site lab staffed by master lab technicians.

Do ClearChoice Dental Implant Centers refer patients to other dental professionals?

Yes. As ClearChoice focuses solely on dental implant treatment services, patients that need other non-implant related treatment services are referred to periodontists, general dentists, and other prosthodontists.

What if I want to refer a patient to a ClearChoice Dental Implant Center?

Your patient will be treated as they would in a normal restorative dentist/specialist relationship. We will coordinate restorative care with your office. If you wish, a provisional prosthesis will be provided by our prosthodontist. The patient will then return to your office for final restorative and continuing dental care.

Are fees comparable to those in the community?

Yes. ClearChoice Dental Implant Center fees are similar to those of other private practitioners for comparable services. However, full arch replacements performed by ClearChoice are generally provided at lower costs to the patients due to the efficiencies of the all-in-one centers, the Immediate Function protocols, and the integrated treatment approach used by ClearChoice.

Will patients be monitored after treatment?

Patients will be on routine follow-up every six months and monitored for their prosthodontic needs, hygiene and overall oral health. For their convenience, we refer our patients to qualified general dentists or periodontists in their area for routine cleanings and follow-up care. We work closely with these dentists to be sure the patients receive the care they need. Patients can also return to any ClearChoice Dental Implant Center for any adjustments, repairs, or follow-up care they may need.

Is ClearChoice owned by an implant company?

No. Each ClearChoice Dental Implant Center around the country is owned and operated by local specialists, many of which are well published in the implant scientific literature. No dental implant company, nor any other manufacturer, has any ownership whatsoever in ClearChoice.

Will ClearChoice Dental Implant Centers provide continuing education seminars?

Yes. Many ClearChoice doctors are well published, and are well known in the implant dentistry lecture circuit. Each center plans to host periodic seminars regarding dental implant treatment and care, inviting local general dentists and specialists to participate. ClearChoice will also be compiling data from all of our national facilities for retrospective and prospective studies for publication.

How do I get in touch with the ClearChoice Dental Implant Center in my area?
