It would shock our many dental implant patients to learn that people spend more time researching their hairdresser than they do the person who will be in charge of their oral health. When it comes to selecting the dentist that will provide your dental implant treatment, it is important that you do the research necessary to ensure that your care is in the best hands. After all, not all implant providers are made equal. In fact, there are some dentists that merely attend a couple of weekends worth of classes before offering the treatment to their patients. In order to properly determine who the best implant dentist for your needs might be, there are some questions you may want to ask.
One of the most important questions you can ask your potential implant provider is what kind of experience they have that enables them to be sure in their ability to provide their patients with dental implants.
Not only has Dr. K. Ashraf graduated with a Doctor of Dental Surgery degree, but he has also spent a lot of time training in dental implants. For instance, he participated in a dental implant surgery oriented mini-residency with Dr. Hebel. He has also attended the dental implant surgical masters series in Miami, as well as devotes some of his time at the Dental Implant Institute of Las Vegas’ comprehensive dental implant surgical series. Dr. K. Ashraf has put this knowledge to use over the 20+ years his Waterloo, ON area practice has been open.
What kind of certification does your implant provider have? There are actually many different organizations out there that are specifically centered around dental implants and their application.
Dr. K. Ashraf has been recognized by the International Dental Implant Association as a fellow, master, and diplomate. He has also been awarded a diplomate of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists. Needless to say, Dr. K. Ashraf has the certification to prove his ability to provide quality dental implant results.
Dr. K. Ashraf has also been invited and accepted into the prestigious Radek Nitsch Leading Implant Centers of the world.
Does the office that your implant dentist works from have a history with the community it serves? When people think “dental implants” and “quality dental care”, is the first practice they think of your implant dentist’s?
The office of Dr. K. Ashraf has been serving the Waterloo, Kitchener, and Wellington areas of Ontario for over 20 years now. During this time, Dr. K. Ashraf has devoted time to the Children in Need of Treatment program, as well as devotes some of his time at the Sunbeam Center treating children and adults who are developmentally challenged.
What kind of sedation options does your dentist provide? Do they take steps to ensure that their patients who suffer from extreme dental anxiety are still able to receive dental care?
Our practice is happy to provide a variety of different sedation options that can help you receive your implant treatment in a way that is stress-free and comfortable. Many patients fail to get the treatments they need because they fear dentistry. Thanks to sedation, we can put our patients with dental anxiety into a relaxed state that will enable them to move forward with their dental implant treatment.
