It appears my wife needs completely new upper and lower arches. Assuming that’s true, how can I determine the best implant provider in the Chicago area? We have been to Clear Choice and Your Implant Solutions. They seem more interested in getting a commitment. Have you heard anything about A Center for Dental Implants (ACDI) and their affiliation with Resource 1?

I have heard some patient experiences with Clear Choice Dental Implant Centers that make me very wary of them. I don’t know anything about Your Implant Solutions. But I do know this. When dentists try to push people into treatment, offer specials if you start right away, or use any kind of salesmanship tactics, it is very low class. I would not trust any dentist affiliated with an organization that uses any kind of pressure sales technique. I have heard of several such experiences patients have had with Clear Choice. So I would trust your instincts in not wanting to go to either of those places.
I don’t know anything about A Center for Dental Implants, either. I don’t trust large, impersonal dental clinics in general. I don’t know if that’s what they are. Pick the dentist, is my advice.
As far as dental implant providers in the Chicago area, I know an excellent one, and that is Dr. William Cohen of Glenview. He is highly ethical and will present all your options without any pressure of any kind. When I lived in Iowa, I drove to Chicago for my dental care and he was the one who did my dentistry. He has a website, so you can Google him. He has a surgeon in the office who does the implant surgery, and he does the restorative part.
