They accept Delta Dental which is why I started going. Dr. Koester and his crew are easy going and always good to me. I have been going for 4 years and I have never had a problem (scheduling, dental work, etc). To the other comments being made: It's real simple, allow time to arrive early. As for the cavity- of course they are only allotting time to clean, that's the only logical/good business practice to have. The cavity filling requires extra time so another appointment is necessary. Many doctors do that. When I have cavities they usually can get me back in w/in the week to fill!

i have been a patient for quite some time. staff is really good and considerate and clean. place is clean. Dr Vancil is a fine dentist. however, his "bed side" manner could be improved. he came across as cold and mechanic in his interactions with me, which made it difficult for me to feel comfortable asking questions and follow up.

How anyone could write a bad review about this dentist is beyond me. He is very detail oriented. If someone is overbooked it's because he's that good and very popular!
Tips & Advices
This depends on the prosthetic.
  • Dental implants, when cared for properly, can last a lifetime.
  • Crowns typically last between 10-15 years.
  • Resin-bonded bridges typically last between seven  and 10 years. Tooth-supported fixed bridges generally wear out faster than this.
  • Removable partial dentures typically last around 15 years.
  • Complete dentures typically last between five and six years.
The entire process for adding dental implants could take as long as eight months. There are three phases:
  • Phase 1: Grafting. This may take between three and six  months.
  • Phase 2: Artificial root placement. This may take one to two  hours to complete and will take between three and six  months to heal.
  • Phase 3: Crown placement. This is usually done over the course of two visits, two weeks apart.
One dental implant typically costs $1,000-$3,000. However, the abutment (a connector added onto the top of a dental implant) and crown can add $500-$3,000. Multiple dental implants may cost $3,000-$30,000. A full set of implant dentures may cost as much as $90,000, though the average is around $34,000.
A dental implant is a titanium post shaped like a natural tooth's root that is surgically inserted into the jawbone beneath the gums. These posts allow dentists to secure a replacement tooth or bridge in the correct position.
Maxillofacial prosthesis is a subspecialty of prosthodontics. A maxillofacial prosthesis is meant to rehabilitate patients who have defects or disabilities due to trauma, disease, or those that a patient is has from birth. The prosthesis is designed to replace parts of the bone or tissue that are missing, or to help restore functions of the mouth, such as swallowing, chewing, or speaking. Other prostheses are created to protect the face during radiation therapy. Dentists that work with maxillofacial prostheses often collaborate closely with ear, nose, and throat doctors.
