My dentist sent me to an endodontist for 3 missing teeth. I usually get 3 opinions for anything this major and I realize that implants will cost me thousands of dollars. Clear Choice is nearby. I am wondering if I should include them for one of my opinions. thx Jayne
Jayne – You may choose to go to ClearChoice for a second opinion. Just realize that your visit will be a little more time-consuming than at smaller practices, and ClearChoice costs will likely be much higher.
ClearChoice has a sales pitch that prospective patients need to listen to. In addition to watching a video, you will speak with a sales person before speaking with a dentist. The heavy marketing that ClearChoice does increases their overhead costs. Those costs are passed on to the patient. If you choose to see this provider, be prepared to not allow the high-pressure tactics cause you to sign an agreement for implants before you are ready to do so—before getting your third opinion.
We suggest that you include experienced, board-certified implant dentists for your second and third opinions. These dentists have seen hundreds of cases, and can efficiently let you know what is required for your particular case. You will also find that your care is much more personalized, and you won’t be pressured to make a decision right away.
