I work for a marketing agency so I’ve been watching Clear Choice closely. I’ve noticed their commercials more because I actually need dental implants. Although I was hesitant about going to a place I knew nothing of except commercials, I decided to schedule an appointment with Clear Choice. Everyone was friendly and professional. The cost for dental implants with Clear Choice is almost double that of another dentist I saw for information on implants and about 1.3 times the cost of the third implant dentist. I am uncertain if Clear Choice is really that good or if they are just a money pit. Their customer service was far ahead of the other two dentists I visited. If that is any indication of how I will be treated as a patient, it might be worth the cost. How is Clear Choice viewed by other dental professionals? Lil
Lil – Clear Choice is known among dental professionals and among consumers for several things:
- Aggressive marketing
- Full-arch dental implants (All-on-4)
- Higher-than-average fees
Whether they are a good option for a patient can only be determined on a case-by-case basis. If you only have one or a few teeth missing, Clear Choice probably isn’t the most cost-effective option. You are able to find high-quality dental implants that cost less.
We’re curious as to whether or not Clear Choice offered you multiple treatment options. There is no need for All-on-4 dental implants unless all of your teeth are missing or badly damaged.
It’s good that you received two other opinions from implant dentists. Compare your treatment options with the other dentists you visit. Keep in mind that if you do need All-on-4 dental implants, a skilled prosthodontist can provide them. He or she is likely able to provide all the services you need in his or her office. That’s the same convenience you would get from Clear Choice.
Many actual patients of Clear Choice or other mega dental centers feel that they didn’t receive personal attention. They felt more like they were visiting a finely tuned dental clinic. Although your initial visit was great, you might be disappointed as a Clear Choice patient.
The decision to receive dental implants shouldn’t be made quickly or based on emotion or impulse. Choose your provider carefully, too.
