Smile Implant Center - California, Newport Beach - Bad dental work

Posted: 2013-05-02 by    Ron Hannah
Complaint Rating:  100 % with 1 votes
I had 4 implants put in and they all came out. I've had bridgework done and that came out as well. The anesthesiologist also overdosed me with pills. I woke up in the back to the dental assistants slapping me awake. Not very happy with them. Even paid $13, 000 in advance....

Smile Implant Center - California, Santa Ana - Terrible Service

I am a former patient of Smile Implant Center and want to warn everyone to please do yourself a favor and stay away from this crook. I had a full mouth restoration performed in February 2012, and paid $25, 000 to Smile upfront. Actually in January of 2102 they had the full payment, over a month before the procedure. I was supposed to receive my final prosthesis in October of 2012 but after months trying to get Smile to complete everything I have given up. In email conversations with Dr Teich from Jan 2013 his final response to my complaints and lack of follow thru from the office was "if I...

Dear Patients and Friends,

My name is Dr. Thomas Teich and I am the owner and founder of the Smile Implant Center started 11 years ago. I opened the business and for the first 6 months I was the only employee. I answered the phones and made all the appointments I sterilized the instruments and did everything. From 2002 through 2008 our office was located in Santa Ana and grew gradually and consistently by providing care to patients with a small staff in a small facility. At this office before we moved we had seen over 10, 000 patients. It was personally possible for me to start and...

Smile Implant Center - California, Newport Beach - Breach of Contract

I was repeatedly assured the implant brand would be Noble Biocare verbally and in writing on paper contract. The Smile Implant Center website has always displayed that "We use Nobel Biocare" for patients. After long wait, they bundled me all up and tied me aroung the chair like a prisoner, cover my eyes. They have already taken several photo shots of me, full and half length, copied my driver's license, very humiliating treatment. I heard the commotion, asuming Dr. Thomas came in. He apparently did not want you to see what he looks like. He inserted a cheap metal stick in my bone....

Smile Implant Center - California, Newport Beach - unskilled employee, material used and hacks

Complaint Rating:  100 % with 2 votes
This sham of a company produces the worst form of implants, It is barbaric and doomed to fail. The reason the are so "cheap" in all respects is because for full upper and lower implant they install a u shaped metal piece similar to a mouth guard and screw it into your gums with a minimum of pins to hold it in. 6 on the top, 4 on the bottom. The least they can do is what they do
If one pin attached to you gum fails……so does the whole unit.
The work is shoddy and similar to a chop shop. The even misaligned the new teeth! The top was to the left of the bottom!...

Los Angeles resident Paula Kane went to the Smile Implant Center in Newport Beach for dental implants after seeing a newspaper advertisement in January 2010.

Hours later, she went into respiratory arrest; her blood...

A dental implant they installed less than 2 years ago just cracked while I was eating soggy breakfast cereal, smile implant center will not fix or replace the crown unless I pay for it, , , it cost me $1400 in the 1st place, , my regular dentist says a crown for an implant should last the life of the patient unless of course the patient is chewing rocks, , , I have always been very careful with this implant just because I am not sure how strong it is, and for this crown to crack while eating soggy cereal is a perfect example of a poorly made crown made of inferior materials, , , , , , , meanwhile...

I think it is outragerous that competitors of The Smile Implant Center, unable to compete with them as SIC is so much larger with much more up to date equipmen and a much larger staff, encourages its employees to post fake reviews all oer the internet stating untrue statements aboutthe MILE iMPLANT cENTER. Smile Implant is wopderful! I have been going tp them for four years and have not had all my teeth repace3d with great implants that work better, look better than ever.

Smile Implant Center - Only One Year Free Credit

I got Dental Implants recently at the Smile implant Center. They did a good job, maybe I would say the implants are better than good and the price was fair and they did it all in one day but they only offered free credit for one year. When I bought my new Ford recently they gave me free credit for 5 years. I wishI had 5 years to pay for my implants too. Other than that I would recommend them. Nothing hurt and the price was better than any other price for implants in Orange or LA County and I checked a lot f places....

My mother has had a lot of recent dental problems. She had dentures, expensive ones but he hates them, says it is difficult for her to talk and eat with dentures so she often does not wear them and cannot eat properly causing health problems. She is on Medicare but as they don't pay much on dental issues we also have dental insurance for her. One of her friends recently got dental implants at the Smile Implant Center and raved about them to my mother, said implants were "better than her own original teeth", that kind of thing. We checked a few places and found Smile Implant Center...

Smile Implant Center - Stay away from these guys

Complaint Rating:  20 % with 5 votes
I've consulted a lot of other people. They're all out of their minds. When I talked to Dr. Teich, and he gave me the whole layout, I said finally something makes sense. You know, and reasonable sense. These other guys, if my first born wouldn't object they'd want him. And it was a whole thing, it was going to take 3, 4, or 5 years. Or whatever. You know, we have to do this and than have to wait 3 years. What are you talking about, all I want is some implants? Everybody else gets them.

I had been to other dentists. In fact even friends of mine and discussed implants...

Smile Implant Center - California, Newport Beach - Terrible Experience

Complaint Rating:  100 % with 6 votes
I fell for the TV ad and went down to get a free consultation. I had all the scans done and then sat with an account manager to weigh up my options. I needed 4 crowns, two extractions, 2 implants, 2 bone grafts and a sinus lift. It cost me nearly 5 figures to get it done but I wanted it done and out the way. I sat in the chair after being given an oral sedation. The dentist came in and looked in my mouth and said I needed a filling. He stopped and left the room and 25 minutes later the account manager came in and said I needed to pay for the filling now and wanted my credit card. I had to sign for...

Why is it that the main thing on your site is a complaint? I had some issues growing up, you know, bad teeth. Than had them pulled out and realized that was not what I was going to do. And so I did some research, and came across the smile implant center, and they're the ones I felt happy with. I love the people here, overall, I mean, I felt comfortable with the doctor right from the beginning. I did some research, I talked to everybody, and he's the one who made me feel the most comfortable. I'm old now, so to come at my age, and to see what they were able to do, because my jaw bone...

I was in search of a dentist. I knew there was work that had to be done. I had a full bridge, a crown, about 8-10 teeth, different parts of the mouth, OK, total. So dentures was not an option for me, I was not looking for that, I was looking for implants. So I interviewed a couple of other doctors actually. They had nothing to offer me other than, come back, we will take x-rays, we will charge you for this, and we will charge you for that.
Than I happened to see this advertisement for the smile implant center. They were offering full mouth x-rays. They were offering full examination. A 3D...

In England at the moment there are a lot of people who go to Hungary and Poland and even South Africa because of the language, but Los Angeles is further. my cousin who lives in Los Angeles, who is one of your patients too, said, “Do not worry. Come to America. You know, everybodys got implants there.” And implants were hardly known in England at that time. when I first came and had implants, eight of them and Dr. Teich wonderfully took that piece which was not supposed to be there out and replaced it. without any trouble. And about two years ago suddenly I— a piece came into my...

I did not even have to ask for it. You know, give me a discount or anything. They just say no charge. We honor our service. We honor our practice. And that is about it. The other people they were charging me $2, 300 each. This doctor charged me about $900. But the equipment at Smile Implant Center, the know-how of Smile Implant Center, the customer service at Smile Implant Center, and they treat you like you are family. They treat you like you are family. They know dental implant. They know what they are doing. The Smile Implant Center, I honestly feel, when I walk in, I am walking into my own house....

I came to Smile Implant because I have always had my mind set on implants since my regular teeth went bad. I was searching the internet and I saw them on the internet and I started reading. Went to their site and started reading what they do. The most important thing that caught me with the Smile Implant was them mentioning being able to taste your food again. And I said okay because that had been my biggest problem over the past years. I called them and set up an appointment, and told them I’d like to come and see if I could afford it. They said come in, talk to us, we’ll work something...

My husband had gone to get implants but in the other office in Santa Ana. And eventually he got his smile the way he wanted, he’s very happy with it. He told me that they’d run all these tests and x-rays and said I was alright to go for it, you know. So I gave my okay to go ahead and, something more comfortable than that partial I had. And right now I’m happy as can be. So I mean I went through the whole operation and all. It was discomfort for a while but it’s expected, you know. And now I’m happy with my smile.
