Making the decision to move forward with dental implants is just the first stop on your journey to a complete smile. The next logical step is to find a dental implant provider who fits your needs, whether it’s the quality of the implant, the distance from home, or the affordable financing available to you. Take a look below at a list of pointers we like to give our patients when it comes to finding a reputable implant provider they can trust, and how Dr. Chao could possibly fit that bill.
There are many courses and programs out there that dentists can take to start learning about implant placement and how it can save their patient’s smiles. But a true implant provider is someone who stays up-to-date on the latest in implant developments, such as new technology or techniques. They also typically are active members in various organizations, communities that are devoted to educating each other. Whether it’s Prosthodontics organizations, the ICOI, or the Misch Implant Institute, you can trust that your provider is devoted to giving the very best that dental implants have to offer if they have these on their resume.
Here in Pleasanton, CA, Dr. Maggie Chao has practiced the full range of prosthodontics, both prosthetic and aesthetic dentistry. From crowns to veneers, and especially dental implants, she is experienced in understanding and perfecting smiles. She is also considered an expert in All-on-4 for Teeth in a Day, a relatively new implant procedure for patients missing a full arch of teeth.
Imagine that you’ve latched onto the idea of dental implants for your smile, only to find out that the nearest dental implant provider is an hour or two’s drive away. Not only would you have to budget for the implant treatment, but now would have to add gas and other travel costs on top of that. For some patients, this could be why they end up not receiving dental implants; they feel it’s not worth the traveling.
If you reside in Pleasanton, CA or the surrounding areas, you won’t need to travel to San Francisco or San Jose for the dental implants you need.

Each dentist has a different way of treating their patients, but most will work hard to educate their patient about the procedure they’re interested in. A good implant provider won’t simply move forward with the treatment, but will take the time to make sure the patient is prepared for implants and feels comfortable with the doctor.

Dental implants are both a financial investment and an investment in your oral health. However, it’s understandable when patients worry about the price of their treatment. In our experience, most dental insurance providers will only cover a part of the dental implant treatment. When searching for an implant provider, it’s best to find who not only take dental insurance, but also has a range of financing options available for patients. This way, patients have a variety to choose from and can budget accordingly.
Pleasanton Prosthodontics is one such practice that has many financing options for patients seeking dental implants. Give us a call to see if we accept your dental insurance provider; we also offer different financing options, including CareCredit and Springstone Patient Financing Services. For those who prefer other payment methods, we also accept cash, personal checks, and credit cards (including Discover, MasterCard, Visa, and American Express).
