That’s why we’ve created a guide to understanding if an implant dentist is right for you. Learn about the important qualities of an implant dentist and how to choose a dentist that’s right for you.
The Qualifications of an Implant Dentist
First, a dentist must be educated to place dental implants. But even among certified implant dentists, levels of education can differ. A dentist with more training and experience can more efficiently place your implant.
Dr. Anderson completed his residency with the Misch International Implant Institute — one of the top dental implant education programs in the world. He also seeks additional education beyond requirements each year because he’s dedicated to learning.
Each year, Dr. Anderson places dental implants for satisfied patients in the Gunnison area.
