This is all certainly not surprising. The more you guys dig in to the patient population and ethical conduct issues of this practice, the more you'll be surprised. It takes alot of cosmetic dental implants to pay for that big office, the lake houses, property, and cars. One of the problems with having your teeth pulled and replaced with dental implants is that you get terrible breakdown of the integrety of the jaw bones. This will weaken the bones and will thin the matrix severely. You'll have the look of the little old homeless person over time! Not to mention that you'll need constant revisions and upgrades throughout your life! You people also might want to check out Dr. James White and Dr. Thomas Miller as huge participants in medical malpractice...not yet recognized however!

The dentists up here toward Sevier county and in Cocke are really bad too. Really unethical and very very shoddy work and always higher prices. They want to sell you everything they've got, they do not do the work you simply need. They ruin your teeth in the process to keep you coming back and paying. You can end up with quite a bit of tooth trouble by visiting dentists here.

Thanks.

I had to think about this one for a bit, deciding; if anyone posts to the threads, asking for help, who sound near legitimate, then we should at least try to put forth an effort.
