I can't say enough about myfirst visit! The staff were professional, kind and supportive. I have always had great anxiety in any dental visit, but this dental group took the fear out and created such a pleasant appointment. My first appointment involved the initial step in having a crown. The administering of the numbing medicine was painless and I felt NO needle pricks whatsoever!I will definitely spread the word about my wonderful new dentist! Joyce Paldino

It appears that the office location probably makes a huge difference. The office in Middletown is not compassionate or caring at all in my opinion. My boyfriend got coverage through the marketplace and it is medicaid. When they pulled ALL his teeth they gave him a very small amount of pain medication and denied any refills. Shameful that they treat an individual this way. Treated him like he should not be asking for anything else.

I just got a cleaning here, and Gail was fantastic! Most pleasant teeth cleaning in a very long time! Erin, the receptionist, is always so friendly and helpful in scheduling. If they have an appointment available that is before your appointment, they call to see if you want to come in earlier. Dr. Yi is very professional and friendly. They take mostly all insurances, but are fair and flexible with billing on things that are not covered. My husband and I have come here for years and have no intention of ever going anywhere else!!

Wow! Wow! Wow!So, I'm kindof a germaphobe and I've had experiences in the past with unhygienic dentists. I was upfront with Ashley and told her this and she made it a point to tell my hygienist, Amy. Amy then went out of her way to make sure I was comfortable and knew the utensils were clean and sterile. She also WASHED her hands before putting on new gloves which impressed me! Then, Dr. Shellhouse came in and he was a wonderful, friendly man who took great care of me!Together, Ashley, Amy and Dr. Shellhouse made me feel welcome and safe! I honestly don't want to even go to any other dentist! Plus, they do most work in-house so you kill a lot of birds with one stone.Ashley even took the time to show me her dental work because I am considering invisiline. I honestly can't tell you how much I felt relaxed and like I'd finally found a place where my finickiness is appreciated instead of abhorred.You will NOT be disappointed by this office!

Tips & Advices
Depending on the circumstances, there might not be a safe or effective alternative to dental implants that would not impact your health and quality of life. This is because healthy teeth are essential for maintaining a balanced diet and proper nutrition. In the case of a single tooth damaged from a cavity or infection, a dentist might opt to perform a root canal procedure to remove the infection while preserving the tooth itself. However, this operation often still requires replacing the top of the tooth with an implant known as a crown. In general, the best alternative to implants is preventing the need for them through proper oral hygiene. Regular brushing and flossing helps prevent tooth decay that can eventually lead to loss of teeth and other dental problems.
Start by looking into what is and is not covered under your health or dental insurance to understand and estimate costs. Then work with your primary dental care provider to understand treatment options and get recommendations for practitioners. You may also research oral and maxillofacial practices online.
Coverage of implant procedures varies depending on the specifics of your health or dental insurance. It may also depend on whether or not the implants are considered medically necessary as opposed to being an elective or cosmetic procedure. If you are a member of a Medicare health plan, most elective dental procedures are not covered. Medicare may cover some costs for procedures that involve dental surgery, like reconstruction of the jaw following an accidental injury or emergency surgery. Check with your health plan provider for information on how dental implant services are covered.
Full recovery from an implant procedure can take several weeks or months. Assuming the surgery is completed without any serious complications, patients are usually sent home within a day to recover. For the first day or two after surgery, patients are advised not to disturb the implant site or perform any kind of strenuous physical labor. Gauze pads will need to be periodically replaced to control bleeding for the first day or two. Pain medication to reduce discomfort and swelling is also prescribed for at least the first two weeks. Doctors will advise patients to avoid hard food, hot food or liquid, or use of a straw for the first days after the procedure. The best foods are purees and soups that require minimal chewing and can be eaten with a spoon. Patients may also need to rinse implant sites for a few days after surgery. Follow-up appointments within the first few weeks are often required to ensure recovery is progressing.
Those who perform dental implant procedures are known as oral and maxillofacial surgeons. These physicians are generally certified as a Doctor of Medicine (M.D.) as well as one or more special degrees for dental surgery or osteopathic medicine. Becoming a dental surgeon requires at least 12 years of academic and professional training in the United States, and requires certification with the state medical board. A general dentist with specific training in implantology can perform implant surgery, as well as certain specialists:
  • Prosthodontist – specializes in the restoration and replacement of teeth
  • Oral and maxillofacial surgeon – specializes in dental surgery
  • Periodontist – specializes in periodontal (gum) disease
