I'e lost almost all of my upper teeth over the last 65 years and am going to replace 6 to 8 upper front teeth. I previously had a 1 piece bridge/crown which never really would stay connected to what was left of my remaining teeth. I finally gave up, had the 6 teeth stubs pulled, and am making arrangements to have the implants done. I've been quoted $998.00 per tooth for all three components for regular implants at the Right Choice Dental Implant Center, Jeffersonville, Indiana by Dr. Tanya Long. She previously practiced in Louisville, Ky. as the 4th Street Dental Spa in Louisville and is a graduate og U of L Dental School. This is literally thousands per tooth less than all the Dentist's reviews here have estimated. Basically, from what I've learned from reading of others experiences here on the net and from my own personal experience, I feel most Dentists doing implements today and medical professionals in general are, what I can only describe as, fleecing their patients with grossely inflated prices. They do business more like used car salesmen than professionals. Frankly, it is not that difficult to view the broader medical community overall from the drug companys to most medical professionals in the same manner. And then their is the case for the billions being scammed from Medicare by the medical community. It's just a fact. If they are scamming medicare I.E., their government, what do you think they are doing to the average guy and gal walking into their office everyday. I'm hoping I've found the exception in Dr. Long, to the not so golden rule, that way to many, so called, Medical Professionals live by. I'll come back after the implant procedure is actually done to let you know.

My Doctor: Join to view doctor's name
Like I mentioned earlier, I needed implants but could not possible afford American Dentists prices so I started looking at Mexican and Costa Rican possibilities because my Brother in Law and family lives in Arizona and goes into Mexico for all their dental work. He was very complimentary of the Mexican Dentist he'd used but I'd caution you to carefully research this possibility because you could easily end up with a butcher. In doing so, I accidentally ran on to Dr. Long's practice being mentioned and whoever was commenting was complementery so I made the phone call, she sent me a brochure and a dvd and the rest is history.
