I am always anxious throughout the appointment of the dentist. Because most of the dentists I met kept saying how good their service was, how successful the implant was, even I don’t have relevant experience.
Does anyone know how to judge the reliability of the dentist when you walk into the clinic? I want to find a specialist in dental implants.

hi there, Alex great question… The easiest way to find a specialist is to search the general dental Council register https://www.gdc-uk.org/registration/your-registration/specialist-lists one of the problems you will find with implants that there is no specialist list for dental implants. Generally speaking if you want a specialist to place dental implant you will be looking for a specialist periodontist that has had additional training in placing implants.
Does that help?
