How to find the right implantologist - light in the dark for patients Zug/Hamburg, 25th October 2014 | The editors of Spiegel got straight to the point of what the internet portal Leading Implant Centers successfully fights for in the implantology market for over a year. Due to lacking transparency in the clutter of dental training for plantologists, most patients are unaware which education they can trust and whether or not the dental specialist is certified.
Leading Implant Centers is the only internet platform that entered the market exactly for this reason: to create transparency for the patients and to ask for a high standard for the further training of dental specialists as implantologists. As Spiegel reports, trained dental specialists decorate and adorn themselves with degrees such as Curriculum or other non-transparent certificates that are not distinguishable for patients. The internet platform Leading Implant Centers offers a solution. All members are dental specialists within the field of implantology and are quality-wise on the highest education and certification level of the specific scientific dental associations.
Dr. Amir Horowitz DMD from Tel Aviv in Israel has been accepted to join Leading Implant Centers, since he fulfills all the criteria for a membership.
"We want to ensure safety for the patient" explain the founders of Leading Implant Centers. "Therefore it was a must for the founders of the portal one year ago that a scientific advisory board of worldwide renowned implantologists, who also partially hold roles with the international scientific professional societies, reviews and ensures the qualitative contents of the portal and also ensures the systematic examination of the applications for admission of implantologists to the portal."
With all criticism about the confusion of the training of implantologists, implanted dentures offer many advantages for patients, these can be of medical, masticatory and especially esthetical nature. Often a tooth replacement with a single tooth implant is very pleasant as compared to a bridge, the interdental spaces can be flossed and the neighboring teeth do not need to be ground. This enables a more sustainable tooth preservation.
Not only should a good implantologist have a good education, he should explain the purpose for which he wants to utilize implants, creates transparency for the costs and explains the opportunities and risks of the intervention, but also provides alternatives to implantation. He works with the consciousness of being capable to offer an optimal and individually optimized dentistry. A basis of trust between implantologist and patient is also important for the success of the treatment as healing and success of a medical intervention can only take place in an atmosphere of trust. Therefore, the active cooperation and willingness to provide information is asked of the patient. Only then can the dental specialist decide if for example an anxiety treatment for the patient is necessary. In Germany, patients expect a high professional expertise of their dental specialist and this fact usually leads to a commitment for the implantologist.
The founders of Leading Implant Centers act for the long term. They are establishing a worldwide network of qualified implantologists to offer patients an extensive network of well trained implantologists and to implement the training and education for implantologists at the highest level of education as the standard. Find the closest implantologist you trust in your vicinity. Dr. Amir Horowitz DMD from Tel Aviv in Israel belongs to this small circle, he is an expert you can trust and stands for dental excellence on the highest level – guaranteed.
