Word has it you’re looking to get dental implants. A quick Google search will yield hundreds of results—but where on Earth can you find an implant dentist that you can trust?

The success rate of dental implants has been reported to be as high as 90-95% (source: Journal of Oral Implantology), making it one of the most predictable dental procedures.
