My experience was a nightmare. He did the 12 mini implants on me and it was presented to me by his son and him as a solution for my missing upper teeth and a solution to last around 20+ years. The so called hi breed bridge was not produced by the lab to fit me so he started into grinding it out to fit me. At the time I was working and living in Chico and told them exactly how much time I had to do this work before I left. I was promised it would be done before I left. Instead I had to return after paying cash ahead of time for this work. Then he told me he had to have knee surgery and so I had to leave and come back from so California and spend money on a hotel so he could fix part of this nightmare. I had to wait two weeks before I returned for surgery. It was done under general and after the twelve implants were placed, then bridge was worked on until it went in with no lip support on top and I had a speech impediment and could not talk or speak properly He told me my tongue would adjust but it didn't and then the implants began to come out. He put permanent cement on the bridge for which I am told no one ever puts permanent cement on mini implants. He was more concerned about getting home and became very impatient and made me feel very uncomfortable for expressing any concern about how the bridge didn't fit right or feel right. I returned and had it removed and lost 4 implants when the bridge was removed. He then cut down on one side of the bridge to compensate for the lost implants and now I had less teeth. Then he put permanent cement and temporary cement in half the bridge. I began to experience bleeding and got an infection for which he ignored and told me things were fine, I returned to so Calif and had to go to emergency surgery to have the implant removed and severe infection cause my whole mouth to swell up and could not put the snap in bridge in now that he converted because the other bridge now was cracked and it cost 400 dollars for which he did not pay, and did not even call to see how I was doing when I was told I had a healthy implant when I left Chico. He was grossly negligent and refused to help me instead referring me to his insurance company This entire experience has been a nightmare and I have I have lost over 6,000 dollars in this attempt to have teeth that function and he never even offered any help and completely ignored my needs after the time problems with the bridge not fitting to the infection he ignored and refused to help in anyway after he was paid. I would not recommend this man for any type of dental work. He does not like being a dentist, and he can be very rude and gruff. Stay away from this guy. He turned my life into a living hell. I should have sued him but was under so much stress and injured my back along with back surgery and couldn't get back there for compensating me on a new one, but the bridge should have never been done without a sinus lift, yet he did it anyway, This man is grossly negligent and I couldn't recommend him to anyone for anything.
