How to Choose a General Dentist
If your dentist is not an ASIRD member, be sure to ask how many dental implant cases he/she completed last year. Ask about the surgeon that will be placing your implant. Do they collaborate together as a team? Or are you simply being referred to the surgeon for the implant placement and then directed back to your dentist to finish the restoration?
When you work with an ASIRD dentist, you know that your dentist has completed extensive qualified continuing education in order to provide up-to-date dental care in a safe and comfortable manner.
ASIRD dentists are required to restore a minimum of five dental implant cases each year in order to maintain their membership. They must also complete extensive didactic and hands-on clinical training in technology, aesthetics and dental health. ASIRD dentists complete a rigorous clinical peer review process, which requires a high degree of commitment and skill. These qualifications of membership are how you know your ASIRD dentist is experienced in advanced procedures, techniques, and products, and will provide up-to-date dental care in a safe and comfortable manner. Through their commitment to education and technology, ASIRD teams are able to provide optimal treatment and quality dental care.
