I heard about Clear Choice dental implants from a marketing campaign on television. But after I have looked into their clinic, I’m not so sure if I want to go with them because there seem to be many complaints. I am retired so I don’t have an unlimited budget so I want to make sure I make a choice that is best for me and so I avoid dental implant failure. Can you tell me who I can trust and who to consult with?

If that is the feeling you have after researching Clear Choice, than I would definitely recommend seeking a second opinion. From what I know about their operation, their treatment plan is to extract all of your remaining teeth and then replace them with all on four dental implants.
There are many options when it comes to dental implants and every individual is different. Implant dentistry is a specialty that should not be treated the same for everyone across the board. Experts within the field recommend starting with the restorative and/or general dentist versus the oral surgeon. This is because the dentist (not the surgeon) will be seeing the entire process through.
You will want to seek out a dentist that has impressive implant credentials. Good training to look for is any involvement with the Misch Institute or membership in the International Congress of Oral Implantologists. When you find your implant dentist, they will likely have a recommendation for the oral surgeon that they trust to provide the highest quality care.
