Implant Institute Patient


Want to save money on dental implants? You can pay less for implants by becoming a Ridgewood Implant Institute patient. You will receive the same experienced care as a private patient, except you'll also be part of our lectures that teach other dentists about implant dentistry. You don't have to worry that a novice will be testing out new skills on you. We do all your dentistry ourselves — the other dentists just observe.

So, about five years ago, my partner, Dr. Jin Ha Joung and myself, we looked at each other, and we said, "You know, we both seem to enjoy lecturing." But we also realized that implants tend to be fairly expensive, especially when you're dealing with a full mouth or a full arch of implant restoration. So one of the things that we wanted to deal with, we wanted to take care of both of those at the same time. One, we wanted to lecture to dentists, and even to dental students which I do at the university. The second was to be able to open up our office to more patients. So one of the things that we wanted to do was we wanted to open up the treatment option of All-on-4 to a wider swath of patients. To allow patients who might not be able to afford it, along with the specialty care that we would give them here. The trade-off for a slightly reduced fee, usually about a third of the cost of the All-on-4 procedure is that they allow us to videotape, to have dentists observe, to allow us to lecture. So we get the opportunity to take care of both the patient's desires and ours. Here at Ridgewood Dental Associates, you have two paths you could do if you wanted to do implants. One is a private patient. Go on just as if you were a regular patient here at the practice. You're just going to be an implant patient. The second is to be a Ridgewood Implant Institute patient. People will ask us, "Well, I don't want to have somebody who doesn't know how to do implants do it." Here at Ridgewood Implants Institute, they're observing. They are observing us do it to get the knowledge to do it. We do all the dentistry. We're also opening it up to dentists to allow them to bring their patients here. To have the surgical procedure done by Dr. Joung, and then, you do the restorative, immediate-load procedure, and he oversees it in case dentists wanted to have that procedure done too.
