I have no "ax to grind". I was a patient of SIC for their entire history, was probably one of their earliest patients and saw them once or twice a year until I retired and moved to Louisiana a couple years ago. I liked, that is right, I liked, loved the SIC service and implant work so much that I have been flying back to California for cleanings and adjustments although now I may have found a comparable dentist here in the Baton Rouge area so I can save the airfare. I have referred family members to SIC and I referred co-workers and friends, maybe 25 people over the years and I have not heard a bad complaint from any of them and all were thrilled paying maybe half what other dentists charged for implants.

I am sure that the complaints we see here are real. I believe that the "science" of implants is new and is not perfect yet but who wants to wear dentures and wait! I bet face lifts were troublesome until perfected too. Also Dr Teich has always been dedicated to providing implants to the "masses" so that workers and people on pensions could have an alternative to dentures and it is not fair to compare his $20,000 mouth full of implants to a $40,000 job where you might not wait as long in the office and have all US dentists instead of a mix of US and Latin American dentists studying here. Also Dr Teich saw hundreds of patients every week, maybe a hundred a day. I am going by the huge crowds I SAW IN HIS WAITING ROOM! Given the science is new and many of the patients have terrible problems being not the cream of society and some brought dental problems of a lifetime with them, maybe 1% or .25 of 1% got "screwed up", maybe the patients fault or the doctor, not all surgeries work perfectly you know or all patients would live forever and they do not! All parts of medicine have failures but SIC was so huge that there are more of these than "Dr Doe" who does as many implants in a career as SIC did in a week. It is not a fair comparison

I got great implants at a great price and so did everyone I referred. It was slow sometimes but as a group I bet we saved ourselves as much as $500,000! I think Dr Teich is being treated unfairly. People are piling on. People who could not afford to go elsewhere got implants and others are looking to sue just to make money. I bet this is true!

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 put a bullet in my brain would you finally be happy?" Really? Would you lay back in a chair and let that that man touch you with sharp instruments? I have sores in my cheeks from poor fitting temporary dentures, implants that are still sore and bleeding and the most terrible fit you can imagine, an incredible overbite that keeps me from biting anything and more food gets trapped between my dentures and gums than goes down my throat. I usually just give up eating before getting full due to the discomfort and embarrassment. I have much more to post but will wait until a later date as I am going to see dental board recommended certified specialists in the next few weeks to see what my treatment plan will be to complete everything that Dr. Teich butchered. If anyone would like to respond or speak with me I would be happy to help. Good luck folks, but please for your own good STAY AWAY FROM SMILE IMPLANT CENTER AND DR.THOMAS TEICH.

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 oversee all the patients treatment done here with great success and personal attention to everyone's case.

In 2009 we moved to a Newport Beach location much larger than this original office. We experienced a large phase of expansion over the past few years. During this expansion I was the primary implant surgeon at the center. I was doing surgeries 5 days a week. This was the primary beginning stage of the treatment. We expanded and increased the number other staff members and doctors to finishing the final stages of the implant treatment. Thousands of patients were started and completed with no delays or problems. Some of the patients that had complicated treatment plans and in my opinion did not get to a final stage of treatment in what I believe was a reasonable period of time. I saw this trend increasing in the treatment cycle time of some of our implant patients after we moved and expanded our operation. Most all implant cases take a minimum of 6 months treatment. Some cases involving sinus bone grafts and take up to one and a half to two years to complete. Some of the cases at our Newport location were taking longer.

After I identified this trend I made a decision over the past year to systematically reduced the number of staff and the number of doctors that are working at the center in an effort to allow me to get the office to the point that I could supervise and direct all the patients treatment from start to finish. I also decreased the number of new patients that we were starting treatment. I knew this change in the treatment delivery system was a necessary modification in the way we were completing treatment cases on patients. This accounts for some of the reasons that appointments were more difficult to get and it was harder to call the office and get a response.

The past 4 weeks our remaining staff have all helped to relocate back to the original smaller office in Santa Ana where we started in in 2002. This transition took longer than planned and disrupted treatment on our patients and telephone systems in ways that were not anticipated. I sincerely apologize for the frustrations and problems many of you had due to this relocation. The main computer systems were just finally moved last Thursday night and are still getting them reconfigured to work properly. We are not closing our office or going out of business.

All of your charts and lab work are still organized and available to move to the next phase of your treatment. I plan to personally review and oversee the completion of all the patients that have additional treatment needed. I want to help to finish everyone's treatment as soon as possible. If you will allow me to do this I need your help.

I please ask your assistance in helping me manage your case in the following way.

Send me an email directly to me at drteich@smileimplantcent? giving me the following information:

1. Your full name first, last and middle initial.
2. Date of birth
4 Your best email address.
5. Best phone number
6. Treatment you have had and what you believe you need or a description of the problem you are having..

I will receive all these emails personally. I review your chart and laboratory case and return an email to let you know what the best plan is to move forward with your situation. The best way for me to help you is to get the above information first and review your case and chart before we speak on the phone.

Please help me help you. I am here for everyone and not going anywhere except back to the new office. We all wish to thank all of our patients over all the years for allowing all of us to provide your dental treatment. I know things did not go smoothly lately but please be patient and I promise this will change soon and everyone will be completed.

Thank you,

Smile Implant Center and its owner Thomas J Teich is the worst dental implant center I have ever experienced. Like many other post that I have read, I am suing Smile Implant Center too, to anyone that doubts my comments, do an internet search for small claims cases filed in 2012 against Thomas J Teich. Beware, One of Smile Implant Center's patients died while under their care. MEDICAL MALPRACTICE AWARD against Thomas J. Teich, May 22, 2012, Case Number: 30-2012-00422590

The dentist himself has stated in his response that many of his employees are documented immigrants. Has anyone else noticed that "many" of these reviews are not written in proper English format with correct grammar? One might think that the allegation someone has written of employees writing the reviews could be true. And if this dentist's license was revoked in Arizona and people are experiencing anethesia problems, why is this place still in business. Someone needs to report them to the proper authorities!!

Dr. Teich got expelled from practicing in Arizona due to malpractice in Tucson. Dr. Teich has his dental degree yanked by the U. of Illinois. That should be enough for anyone, but if you believe any of the good reviews, you might want to know that these are required from employees. If you want pain, blood and a bad looking mouth, Dr. Teich can fix you up quicker than if you chose to spar with George Foreman and let him hit you in the face with one of his grills. We had to leave, sacrificing money already paid. The man should be in prison.

As I'm writing to all of you consumers, I'm waiting in a room with my father waiting for the finished product that never fits well in his mouth. Both mouth pieces are either too big or teeth chip and break . Excuses and runner's is what they give you. Everything they promise up front is the complete opposite of what they deliver. This is about our 15th time here since July of 2010. If you were to sit in their waiting room of 12 to 15 people waiting (either get serviced for existing work or a new customer) you will notice people complaining left and right. Different people work on you everytime you come in and nobody gets the story right. I cant even write right now cause Im beyond myself not knowing how to defend my father since he paid them upfront 29K. There is a reason why they're 5 stars on here and then 1 to 2. They write their own 5 star reviews. My advice before you pay them one penny, is to come sit in the waiting room and question the people waiting. Its a no brainer. You will run out and never go back. There is a reason why they advertise so heavily on TV. I tried to talk my father out of this, but he wouldnt listen. This is only 5% of my experience here.

I read the ads from the Smile Implant Center, about how they give you free exams, CT-Scans and X-Rays and how they develop a treatment plan to give you implants as good as your original teeth, all for free before you decide if you are going ahead with implants but I didn't really believe it. I was sure they would say "But you have to pay first and we will re-bate you later." But that is not what happened. They were not pushy at all and all those things, anesthesia too, really are free! I was nervous about getting implants but it was easy. I hated my old dentures. I told friends I had rocks in my mouth because I couldn't speak clearly. Now I feel great and my teeth look like they did when I was 22 years old. The staff at the Smile Implant Center is so very nice and they do great work. I would recommend them to everyone.

To tell you the truth, I didn??t really try any other place but I was referred here by my dentist. I was living in Pasadena at the time. She referred me to Smile Implant Center. Apperently his prices were reasonable and everybody else was charging?. I think at least three to four times as much per implant?. Which I think, realistically, $3,000 to $4,000 per implant is really a rape. Pardon to use that word, but it is a total rape. The reason I??m saying that is I??m in the medical profession. I??m an ER doctor. My?. Most insurances pay me 3 to $4,000 to take care of a heart attack. Now, we??re talking about a life threatening you know, life saving stuff that I do. I get paid $300 bucks. So this dentist puts in an implant which is nice but it??s not exactly life changing or life essential, and gets paid $3,000 dollars for a couple of hours of work. Is that fair? I don??t think that??s fair. So that??s why I thought, you know paying $3,000 dollars for an implant was just too much. Smile Implant Center was reasonable, he worked very fast. I don??t remember the actual surgery. I remember the stiches?? there wasn??t a whole lot of pain afterwards. The only pain I experienced? I would say the implants didn??t hurt at all. I mean, putting pressure on the prosthesis. NO PAIN. The only thing that hurt is healing of the gums which is more of a burning/itching sensation that kind of drives you a little crazy but I wouldn??t call it exactly ??pain? you know, like you have with something else. Definitely nothing like having you know, a tooth infection or something going to your root and giving you in other words, real dental pain. Nothing like that.
So it took some getting used to a few days after that. The probably?. It??s been a period of adjustments since then, trying to get used to my new teeth. It does feel a little bit like a foreign body but I??m getting used to it. It??s much better. At first I??m like, ??What the heck did I do? This feels a bit not natural.? Now, retrospective, this feels great. I mean, now I have teeth everywhere. I can smile better. Before, I couldn??t smile because I didn??t have good teeth to smile for. I??m actually having to learn to smile all over again because I haven??t done if for so many years.

So I??ve been wearing this thing you know?. Dentures. Yeah. Implanted for 10 months 11 months now? waiting for this day. To put that implant back in and get me my real uppers. I said you know what I gotta call these guys cause I??ve consulted a lot of other people?. I??ll tell you. They??re all out of their minds. When I talked to the doctor 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. But I mean 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 have been to other dentists. In fact even friends of mine and discussed implants and getting stuff done and the costs and I think Smile Implant Center beat them by somewhere around 5 to 8 thousand. Well that??s significant. So I mean they were holding true to their advertising. I said well I??m going to do it. I??m not sorry because I think they went above and beyond what they were suppose to do anyway. Actually what that proved to me was that they really cared about was the final outcome is GOOD. This should be it, this should be my very last once. And I get all the teeth and its even gonna look better than what I have now. And what I have now that ain??t bad. The Smile Implant Center is my Dental Implant Center. And there it is.

I for one, can't agree with either of the other posters. My visit was actually very swift, painless, and quite affordable.

I had two cracked teeth and I heard about Smile Implant Center on the radio. I came in and had both teeth extracted. I also had to have a bone graft performed due to major bone loss on the bottom left of my jaw. After that healed, I had the implants placed and I came back in today to take measurements for the crowns. I was pleasantly surprised by the accuracy of the information I was given by the staff. They explained that there would be some swelling after the extraction, but that it would subside by the fifth day, and sure enough, they were right. The swelling subsided on day five. The office ran like a machine, wiht each person fulfilling their specific roles. Initially I debated whether to have a bridge put in, instead of implants, but now that my journey is coming to an end, I can say it was well worth it.

I had my surgery two days ago on Tuesday, and today is Thursday and I have my teeth. I came in as a Doubting Thomas because you don??t go anywhere and get all this stuff free. I thought as soon as I got there, they??ll tell me, ??However before you got to pay this and we will refund you that?. But no, they were very pleasant. They weren??t pushy or overbearing or anything. They explained everything beautifully. I was afraid at first because I had no idea what to expect. But I had such a pure hatred for my denture that I decided that I??d go for it. What the heck. So I did it and I??m very happy about it. It??s so much better for me now because my tongue touches the roof of my mouth. I felt like I always had something horrible in my mouth with my denture. I would tell people that I was carrying a rock in my mouth; it was so uncomfortable. But now they look beautiful. So natural to me. They??re shaped to my face, like when I was 22 and I had teeth. I??d recommend it to everyone, yes I would. They do a beautiful job and they??re very wonderful people to deal with.
It was amazing to me how they did it because I was talking not to you maybe, but to someone, and someone came in to say ??Well I??ll give you the medication, these pills. And you??ll be going to sleep.? And I said, ??Okay, sure, right.? And they gave me the medication and I??m laying there, head back, reciting the 23rd Psalm which I always do when I??m upset and I got to the last verse and the next thing I knew, it was over. They were waking me up saying it was time to go home. And that??s all I ever heard. And I said, ??Wow?.

I made a mistake about two years ago. I signed onto this insurance that you have to use their dentists, and then I found out that they??re mostly third world dentists. So this bridge that??s here is not a very good bridge. It??s good that it??s coming out. But he had to take the original bridge off which was beautiful bridgework, gold bridgework. Now, I??m had trouble with a tooth in there, when I??m chewing the food gets stuck under the bridge. It caused my teeth around to decay. I know it??s hard to clean underneath bridges, very hard. So once you get an implant, you can just use your floss and Waterpik and it??s like a tooth.

My friend came here. He did the teeth here. The dentist here do more dental implants than most dentist will do in their lives. They show me on TV this program which explained how to do it. I know all about and understand. It hurt a little but I'm fine now. My friend did his upper one here. I talked to him and he said he's happy. I got one implant on the top. Thank you very much.

This place is scary as in 'SCAM", I had the free consultation on a Saturday, but it came with a price.

* They asked for my Drivers License and made a copy (hmm, should have been the first warning sign). The next day I was mentoring my Credit when I saw that this Scum Company ran a credit check, I didn't give them any permission to do so.
* They had some guy come around and introduced himself as the Cosmetic Dental Dude, and would be happy to answer all my questions. (What questions other than what is the cost?). In other words, what else can we charge you for?
* Moral of this story is "Stay away from this type of Dental House Mill", Find a reputable Dental office that doesn't heard them in like cattle.

Never got the implant. I remember sitting in the chair and 9 hours later I was getting out of car so loopy that I couldn't stand up. A friend had to come get me and I was in tremendous pain. Had to take pain pills for over a week and now have to take a CAT scan per my general doctor. I don't know what they did. Don't read any comments or review BBB for this dentist. I already looked him up. His license was revoked twice. Don't pay attention to the huge office. These people are scammers and are getting away with it. I COULD HAVE DIED.

My dad gave me an ad from a newspaper, and two friends said I should go to Dr. Teich. Both of them had, so I did.

Really the first impression that registered with me was that everything that he said turned out to be right. I mean, and sense. Every single thing has been great and that means a lot to me.

I??ve probably been into the offices 40 times. I had really, really bad teeth. And when I was a little over a year old, about thirteen months, I almost starved to death. And also when I was in my early twenties, I was in a lot of fights.

My teeth were so infected and unhealthy that they were genuinely threatening my life. He said it??s either gonna be his way or he wouldn??t treat me at all. He said these are the things that I want to do and that??s what we??ve got to do. I trusted him and my health has gotten better and better and better, and now I have a mouth that has no infections. I??m still rebuilding, adding teeth, but I have no infections. My whole health, my whole body, my whole outlook on life is better and stronger now because I don??t have that huge thing dragging me down. He??s made a gigantic difference in my life.

It didn??t just cost me a lot of time but also a lot of money, but the big thing was a lot of worry. I was always worried about my mouth and I don??t worry anymore. If I have a problem, I call immediately, they get me in, they take of it, they make it go away and I like that.

I had some accidents when I was about thirteen years old with the motorcycle, going up and down. And I lost some of my teeth and then I used to put some caps. And after a while the caps didn??t work, and they failed, the cap. So I had to pull out the teeth. So I pull out the teeth and have a long, all the way around artificial with the four roots to keep them down, and after a while that was post, that was broken too. So I came, I found the implant center, I came here and I started, I think it was about a year ago, I started taking care of it.

I almost had no teeth. Nothing. And now??I couldn??t eat, I couldn??t eat properly. I couldn??t talk properly. I couldn??t whistle. I couldn??t do anything. Now I do all these things easily and I??m happy with the way I look too.

I realize there??s a great amount of energy and coordination power between the people who work in here. I felt that they were expert because everything was getting done very professionally. I had that feeling. And then I said to my mom that I??m going to do it here because I liked everything here. There??s great, great teamwork here.

I could have gotten my implant in some other places, too, like other countries. Like Iran or my country. But the thing is I didn??t even feel a needle in my teeth when they wanted to do it. I just had a couple of pills, and I went to sleep. And when I opened my eyes, it was 7:30, I was in the SUV, my sister??s car. I just went home and it was done. I had six implants done and seven up in two different days. I had this last year, the upper, and I had the lower this year. So basically each of them it only took about ten hours. And I didn??t feel any pain. I didn??t even have any pain relief like, let??s say ?? famous pain relievers? Tylenol or Advil. I didn??t even take them. And the guy who was taking care of the implants said, ??You have got good bones!? I said, ??You have got good people working for you!?

My Sister introduced me to here because before me she went here. She was satisfied with it for the teeth that they implanted for her. After that I agreed with them, I came, I got rid that partial and one day they fixed it for me. One day only? 6 hours! They did a good job, I??m so satisfied? with the service with everything. The doctor always was taking care of it. I came during the 6 or 7 months 6 times they checked it up. If something was wrong they fix it. Nothing was wrong but just to make sure. I eat all kinds of food mostly Persian Kabob! Now it looks BETTER than natural because with natural you have aches, you have cavity, a broken tooth? With this you never have anything. No pain no nothing. Because I had lots of difficulty with this lower part to cavity root canal, after two years I put partial sometimes you know a lot of headache. This is forever you are free from everyting.

I cannot agree with the previous reviews. The first appointment was great. I signed up and paid the money. I wanted to pay for the crown separate from the procedure as the crown was to go on about 6 months later. They demanded payment for the crown as well, so I paid it. Then I had to wait two hours in the waiting room just to be taken out back and wait longer. The next time there. Same problem. Waiting hours upon hours in the waiting room and not being seen. I regret going here and would not recommend them to anyone.

My personal experience with the Smile Implant Center and the dental work that was done here at the Smile Implant Center, I can't say enough good things, the fact of the matter is aesthetically the implant supported dentures on the upper and lower are fabulous the fact is they are functional, the retention is there, there are no wobbly loose teeth, everything is in place as it ought to be, it just makes life a joy, on every single level, these denture implanted supports are fabulous, I'm very very happy.

Part of it is, I was so happy with the upper when it was done that that, it was the impetus to go ahead and do the bottom. Because I could have had only a couple of implants if I chose to do that, but I said do the whole thing and load them all on titanium. And that??s exactly what they did. So the teeth stay in. Teeth that don??t come out.

At the Smile Implant Center, the diagnostic consultation, all of the imaging modalities, computer tomography or CT as it??s often referred to which of course is a very elegant imaging modality, X-ray, the lab and important to all of this the people that understand the imaging, that understand laboratory science and dental laboratory prosthetics and of course all the implant choices are available and everything is under one roof.

I realized that I was going to need some major dental work so I started looking around. And what I found was that implants were very, very expensive. Very expensive. They charge you for the X-Rays, the full panoramic X-Rays just for starters, and then they get into major expenses. So I was looking at maybe getting a second on the house. And then I saw the ad in the paper for the Smile Implant Center. And it sounded like, hey, what have I got to lose? I??ll go down there and have them give me an estimate on the work that needs to be done. So I was a little nervous at first. I??m not??Nobody??s a big fan of going to the dentist right? Especially when you??re gonna need implants and that type of thing. So I went down there. They were really cool people. I saw the doctor. It sounded like something I could work with, I could afford. I got some really good work done. I got a lot of compliments on the work. I feel fine. I feel great. They don??t nickel and dime you on every little thing, you know? Their mission is to make you happy, to get it done right. I recommend them highly to anybody. That??s where I would go. And that??s where I??d send anybody that asked me about implants, I??d send them to this place right here.

Before I came to the Smile Implant Center I went to a few places. I decided to try and come here, the prices was lower than the other places, UCLA it would take a long time and I have to go back and forth and back and forth. I had no time for that because we don't live here we live in San Francisco. Even after I started taking x-rays at UCLA, I stopped and came here. I saw the commercial on TV and I decided to come here and try. I like the prices better than the others and the surgery came ok, nice and good, I like it. I got a new smile. The staff all of them really nice you know really I like all the staff here
I can not say one better then the other all of them.
Dr Alberto I like him very much really great.
He is a nice person and he knows what his doing.
Even my kids. They tell me mommy we want to see when you come home
How is the smile look. Even my doctor the head doctor told me I want to when you
Come back because he saw me with a swollen face after the operation and he told me

My regular dentist is in our area in Cypress. He said you can check with some of the people who are doing Implants. And I think I heard it on the radio or saw it in the paper about that place there. Bristol street, past the mall, the old Smile Implant Center building. They did a bone graft. And the doctor says it takes quite awhile to heal. So I waited and they call me. Said it was over here now. It feels ok except its kind of hard. When I bite down I can feel a difference, yeah.
I'd probably tell my friends its pretty good except the waiting period is kind of long. The work they do I think its ok!

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 had disintegrated. And they really built me up and its been wonderful. I can't believe it, I really didn't think they were going to be able to do it, when I first got here. And than he told me he could and I trusted him. And he did it. I tell everybody about the place. It's not that I tell them exactly what I'm doing, but they know I'm getting dental work and that I'm getting compliments on my teeth all the time so that's how it should be.

My regular dentist. I asked them about it because I didn??t know about you folks and he said that he??d heard about you. Since you??re quite a bit less expensive, he said go for it.He was willing to do it but I was looking for someone who could do quality service at a reasonable price. I had two implants done on the lower left side, on the lower left mandible. I had a bridge there for years and years, almost twenty years. It broke one day. And then what happened was that one of the teeth all of a sudden became a little loose. It was pulled and I had that gap there. And said, ??What am I going to do?? I didn??t want another bridge because they??re gonna clear with a brace on this tooth. Therefore I asked for what my options are. They said we can give you an implant. And after I had talked to them about an implant, I had heard your advertisement here on the radio and I decided to try and see what this is about. That is another reason why I chose. Because they seem to have more practice, more expertise. Well it??s primarily I based it on service and price. Make sure they do a good job. That??s part of the service. And the price is competitive and that??s good.

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 panoramic view of your entire mouth. Do you know what that would cost at the last dentist I went to? Too much for me, so there fore I went with Smile Implant Center.
I was a dental specialist in the Air Force, so I do know a little bit about teeth. What happens when you neglect your teeth, they fall out. First of all you loose bone density that separates the teeth and they start to fall out of your mouth. You get gum disease. Your chin starts to collapse on you. Your speech becomes impediment. You do not feel good about yourself. So therefore you need to see a dentist. Now coming to the Smile Implant Center everything is readily available for you. The doctors there. The lab is here. The technicians here. You do not have to go anywhere. As opposed to the other dentist, that I went to and interviewed them. They were going to send me to the lab around the corner. I would have to go somewhere else to have an x ray. So it was a real big inconvenience for me. I did not like that.
At the Smile Implant Center its all in house. Its all a one stop shop. Because they can accommodate you with new technology. You do not have to keep your teeth in a jar at night. You do not have to be embarrassed. You do not take them out. Just that simple, you don't take them out.
Its an implant so its unique. They make the teeth look so natural because they are. They are made with the best of quality to fit your mouth superbly to fit your bite.
When you talk to someone and you listen up intently what do you look at? Their eyes and their teeth. They are captivated with that. And if you don't have nice teeth you can't really sell yourself. Its attractive when you have a beautiful smile and you have beautiful teeth. And you can obtain all of that at the Smile Implant Center!

Woman Goes to Smile Implant Center in Newport Beach, Dies; Daughter of Deceased Wins Malpractice Suit
By Yasmin Nouh Thu., Jun. 7 2012 at 3:32 PM
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. When she entered the facility around 9:30 a.m., anesthesiologist Dr. Barry Friedberg administered her drugs while she stayed awake--Kane's anesthesia of choice for the procedure known as "oral conscious sedation." Hours later, she went into respiratory arrest; her blood turned dark, according to one of the dental assistants present; deadly combination of propofol--the same drug that killed Michael Jackson--along with benzodiazepines had shut down Kane's respiratory system. When she was taken to the hospital, doctors diagnosed her as brain dead. A few days later, her daughter, Tanisha Mitchell, took the 57-year-old off life support.

Mitchell filed a medical malpractice lawsuit against the center's owner, Dr. Thomas Teich, and Friedberg; Orange County jurors found both men guilty of wrongful death two years later on May 22, 2012. Teich did not have a permit to administer oral conscious sedation, while Friedberg had been unregistered with the Dental Board of California for general anesthesia.

"I would think you don't expect to go in for dental implants and be overdosed on propofol and die especially when that patient has gone in thinking [he or she] will get drugs like valium," said Mitchell's attorney Jeffrey Wolf of Heimanson and Wolf, LLP in Los Angeles.

The verdict outlined $635,000 for pain and suffering damages, but was then reduced to $250,000 per California's cap on non-economic damages. Both men will equally split the cost.

Teich, who still practices in Newport Beach, is not unfamiliar to malpractice lawsuits. He's been charged with medical malpractice twice before in California, and is currently involved in 13 other malpractice cases.

Teich moved to California from Arizona several years after the Arizona Board of Dental Examiners revoked his license in August, 1994 due to insurance fraud, repeated acts of gross negligence and unprofessional conduct among other charges. He spent eight months in federal prison for committing the felony of mail fraud, according to a stipulation agreement.

Six years later, he got his license back on a probationary basis in 1999, during which he applied and obtained a California dental license in 2002. Even after the move, the malpractice suits piled up against Teich, to the point that Richard DeCuir, executive officer of the state's dental board, filed a complaint in April, 2011 requesting the board revoke Teich's license, citing record of failing to upkeep medical records, personal injury against patients, unprofessional conduct and gross negligence again.

DeCuir filed the complaint in April, 2011; four months later, Teich paid $72,400 in an arbitration award to a former patient for injury including nerve damage in another lawsuit. DeCuir's accusations are currently still pending a decision according to Russ Heimerich, spokesperson for the Department of Consumer Affairs.

The Medical Board of California has yet to subject Friedberg to any disciplinary actions. Friedberg, who describes himself as "your friendly, neighborhood anesthesiologist" on his website, continues to practice anesthesiology, and run a private, nonprofit foundation called Goldilocks Anesthesia. He authored Getting Over, Going Under: 5 Things You Must Know Before Anesthesia, and spoke about anesthesia to various outlets during the Michael Jackson trial.

I can't say enough about my experience with the Smile Implant Center in Newport Beach. Doctors, technicians, staff, and lab artists are Professional, highly skilled, take pride in their work, they are warm, and caring. They are ethical and evaluations and recommendations are right on. A mix of crowns and implants were done and it was a major job. No charge for X-rays and reasonable prices made my work affordable. Having it all completed at one location, unlike other dentist where a job is divided between a dentist office, periodontist office and an offsite lab made no sense to me and is too expensive. Thank you Smile Implant Center! I recommend you highly and I am totally impressed by you.

I wish they would let me give them 10 stars! I am an older senior and thought I was too old to get implants. The Smile Implant Center did my implants in two visits. one for the free exam and X-Rays and next time i went in in the morning my new teeth, much better than my originasl were ready for me at the end f that day. The price was greattoo and I felt less pain than getting a filling, not bad at all.

I am recommending Smile Implant to all my family and friends.

I was really nervous about having a lot of dental work done to get implants but I needed them badly. I am just over 61 years old and my own teeth had failed yet I just could not learn to live with dentures. Smile Implant Center was super fsair about the price they charged and they give you free X-Rays, Free exam and all kins of stuff like that but best fr me s they did all my work in ONE DAY! It didn't hurt a bit because they also give you free anesthesia that really works. If you need or think you need dental implants, go to Smile Implatn Center. You will be glad you did!

I read the ads from the Smile Implant Center, about how they give you free exams, CT-Scans and X-Rays and how they develop a treatment plan to give you implants as good as your original teeth, all for free before you decide if you are going ahead with implants but I didn't really believe it. I was sure they would say "But you have to pay first and we will re-bate you later." But that is not what happened. They were not pushy at all and all those things, anesthesia too, really are free! I was nervous about getting implants but it was easy. I hated my old dentures. I told friends I had rocks in my mouth becuase I couldn't speak clearly. Now I feel great and my teeth look like they did when I was 22 years old. The staff at the Smile Implant Center is so very nice and they do great work. I would recommend them to everyone.

As you know, the success of any organization depends on the people working there.
I recently had six teeth extracted, six implants done, and a Phonare bridge installed to the implants.
I was so impressed with Dr. Garry Jones and the work that he did, that I wanted to drop you a note to that fact.
Dr. Jones?? success is due, not only to his technical abilities, which are unparalleled, but just as importantly kept me informed every step of the way in a manner that quieted my anxieties and kept me relaxed the whole time.
This letter wouldn??t be complete if I did not acknowledge your own capabilities. It only takes about two minutes to see that you are extremely knowledgeable and competent in the field of implant surgery. I??m sure that you would be extremely successful in any endeavor that you choose. My background is that I have a Bachelor??s degree from Yale University and a Ph.D. in Executive Management from the Claremont Graduate School. I retired after 32 years with Boeing Co. where I have had ample time to judge organizational performance as Mgr. Business Development.
Again, thank you for the work done by you and your staff, and I have no hesitation in recommending the Smile Implant Center to those that need implant surgery.

I 'm really unhappy with the Smile Implant Center!!! It only took Smile Implant a couple of minutes to get my credit card number and charged me $2625 on October 21, 2011. However, when I requested for a refund because I got sick and not able to do the implant procedure, their financial representative told me I won??t get my refund until next year.

The following quote is exactly what their financial representative said, ??I am sorry that you are not feeling well and would like to cancel your treatment. In order to process your refund we need an actual letter with the reason of canceling and then I will process the refund request and send it to my refund department to process which could take up to next year to get done.?

Again, their financial representative told me I won??t get my refund until next year! I didn??t get any service from Smile Implant and they want me to write them a letter to get my money back!! Even if I get my refund by January 1, 2012, that will be at least 80 days since Smile Implant charged me over $2600!!!

I tried to call the Smile Implant refund department, but their operator told me I can??t talk to their refund department. The operator told me I can only to talk the financial representative. However, from the email I got from the financial representative, she said she has no control over what the refund department does. Can you believe that?!!!

Be warned of the consequence of giving your hard earned money to Smile Implant Center!!!

This place is indescribale.
First of all let me say that all the "Good" reviews are written by employees. The lobby is FILLED with disgruntled patients.
I won't even spare you the ugly details of the nighmare we have endured for the last year and a half.
A broken tooth a month. A total of 10
Hours upon hours of waiting for a technician. Of most I really don't think have actually graduated.
You can plan on a 6 hour dental visit. Your time? Invaluable to them!!
The most unprofessional business ever run.

THEY ARE REPORTED TO THE DEPT CONSUMER AFFAIRS AND THE CALIFORNIA DENTAL ASSOC.

Came here for free consultation, waited 2 hours. While in waiting room, 4 or 5 "coordinaters" came in to greet me and asked the same questions over and over again. Then the doctor came, he is very good and knowlegeable. After that one coordinator presented with treatment plan, I told him I will think about if for a couple of days. Then surprise! I was notified by daily credit monitoring company that they ran credit check on me without my authorization or approval. I specifically told him we are doing home loans, dont want to run credit check, it lowers my score. I did not even put down my social security number, dont know how they even ran it. Maybe by birth date, drivers license number and street address. I am very upset! WATCH OUT when you fill out the form here, dont even give them your real name or address or birth date or license number until you have decided to do the work here.

I made a mistake about two years ago. I signed onto this insurance that you have to use their dentists, and then I found out that they're mostly third world dentists. So this bridge thats here is not a very good bridge. Its good that its coming out. But he had to take the original bridge off which was beautiful bridgework, gold bridgework. Now, I'm had trouble with a tooth in there, when I'm chewing the food gets stuck under the bridge. It caused my teeth around to decay. I know its hard to clean underneath bridges, very hard. So once you get an implant, you can just use your floss and Waterpik and its like a tooth.

I had my surgery two days ago on Tuesday, and today is Thursday and I have my teeth. I came in as a Doubting Thomas because you dont go anywhere and get all this stuff free. I thought as soon as I got there, theyll tell me, However before you got to pay this and we will refund you that. But no, they were very pleasant. They werent pushy or overbearing or anything. They explained everything beautifully. I was afraid at first because I had no idea what to expect. But I had such a pure hatred for my denture that I decided that Id go for it. What the heck. So I did it and Im very happy about it. Its so much better for me now because my tongue touches the roof of my mouth. I felt like I always had something horrible in my mouth with my denture. I would tell people that I was carrying a rock in my mouth; it was so uncomfortable. But now they look beautiful. So natural to me. Theyre shaped to my face, like when I was 22 and I had teeth. Id recommend it to everyone, yes I would. They do a beautiful job and theyre very wonderful people to deal with.
It was amazing to me how they did it because I was talking not to you maybe, but to someone, and someone came in to say Well Ill give you the medication, these pills. And youll be going to sleep. And I said, Okay, sure, right. And they gave me the medication and Im laying there, head back, reciting the 23rd Psalm which I always do when Im upset and I got to the last verse and the next thing I knew, it was over. They were waking me up saying it was time to go home. And thats all I ever heard. And I said, Wow.

So I did it and Im very happy about it. Its so much better for me now because my tongue touches the roof of my mouth. I felt like I always had something horrible in my mouth with my denture. I would tell people that I was carrying a rock in my mouth; it was so uncomfortable. But now they look beautiful. So natural to me. Theyre shaped to my face, like when I was 22 and I had teeth. Id recommend it to everyone, yes I would. They do a beautiful job and theyre very wonderful people to deal with.
It was amazing to me how they did it because I was talking not to you maybe, but to someone, and someone came in to say Well Ill give you the medication, these pills. And youll be going to sleep. And I said, Okay, sure, right. And they gave me the medication and Im laying there, head back, reciting the 23rd Psalm which I always do when Im upset and I got to the last verse and the next thing I knew, it was over. They were waking me up saying it was time to go home. And thats all I ever heard. And I said, Wow.

Good service, Good price.

My dad gave me an ad from a newspaper, and two friends said I should go to Dr. Teich. Both of them had, so I did.

Really the first impression that registered with me was that everything that he said turned out to be right. I mean, and sense. Every single thing has been great and that means a lot to me.
Ive probably been into the offices 40 times. I had really, really bad teeth. And when I was a little over a year old, about thirteen months, I almost starved to death. And also when I was in my early twenties, I was in a lot of fights.
My teeth were so infected and unhealthy that they were genuinely threatening my life. He said its either gonna be his way or he wouldnt treat me at all. He said these are the things that I want to do and thats what weve got to do. I trusted him and my health has gotten better and better and better, and now I have a mouth that has no infections. Im still rebuilding, adding teeth, but I have no infections. My whole health, my whole body, my whole outlook on life is better and stronger now because I dont have that huge thing dragging me down. Hes made a gigantic difference in my life.

It didnt just cost me a lot of time but also a lot of money, but the big thing was a lot of worry. I was always worried about my mouth and I dont worry anymore. If I have a problem, I call immediately, they get me in, they take of it, they make it go away and I like that.

A number of companies will you a diagnosis, so they can give you a projected cost. I didn??t feel like any place that we went to had the capabilities of this place. In terms of technical expertise, the look of the facility. The professionalism of the people. Initially we were impressed. So in fairness, it took a little longer than we thought but I think the product was well worth it. The people were professional but personable. And we worked through it together and the end result is something that we??re all proud of. We leave as very please customers. In the end what we got is something that looks very natural. It doesn??t look different because they took the time to put the quality into it that gave us those results. Dentures look different. It was a big deal to do, but they did it all in one day. And I think you follow up support was good. Because you need to feel that you have some follow up support and concerns, just pain, but that someone was there to answer the phones to give us the support it didn??t make it feel like you were trying to do this yourself. Even when I had some concerns. Mr. Snyder I think is just outstanding. The Doctor. I??ve gotten to know the names, Carlos. My point is its been that kind of support. So its made something that is a real change something that is much more palatable. So I??m leaving in good standing. And I??ve got nothing but good to say about you guys and your product.

I had my surgery two days ago on Tuesday, and today is Thursday and I have my teeth. I came in as a Doubting Thomas because you don??t go anywhere and get all this stuff free. I thought as soon as I got there, they??ll tell me, ??However before you got to pay this and we will refund you that?. But no, they were very pleasant. They weren??t pushy or overbearing or anything.

This place is like a dental factory, you are definetly a number here. you are put intogroups and treated like cattle moved from one room to another. they sucker you in with a low price and then after having wasted 3 hours on their suppose to be 1 hour consultation they double it on you. I fell for it got an implant and 3 weeks later I had a giant cycst (bacteria ball) growing right on top of the implant. I went back and they said thats normal. BS, I went to another dentist and got it taken care of. DONT GO TO THE DENTAL CENTER AT NEWPORT, if anything does not go cookie cutter they will charge you lots of $$$

This place is scary as in ??SCAM?, I had the free consultation on a Saturday, but it came with a price.
?They asked for my Drivers License and made a copy (hmm, should have been the first warning sign). The next day I was mentoring my Credit when I saw that this Scum Company ran a credit check, I didn??t give them any permission to do so.
?They had some guy come around and introduced himself as the Cosmetic Dental Dude, and would be happy to answer all my questions. (What questions other than what is the cost?). In other words, what else can we charge you for?
?Moral of this story is ??Stay away from this type of Dental House Mill?, Find a reputable Dental office that doesn??t heard them in like cattle.

After refusing to work on me, due to the fact that they wanted me to sign a new arbitration agreement. I have had no luck in getting someone to return my calls and provide me the funds that were due to me for the unfinished work that was already paid for. On one occasion I was put on hold for an hour and fifteen minutes. I have since contacted the better business bureau with no response from SIC. I have contacted the consumer protection agency and my last resort will be small claims court. Beware and check out all of the reviews on other sites, not so good.
