At Austin Dental Implant Center, we have one main focus…DENTAL IMPLANTS and procedures related to dental implants. Getting a dental implant is a big decision and a very important one for you. When choosing a dentist for placement of your dental implants, there are many things you need to consider including the training, experience, and knowledge of the provider. At Austin Dental Implant Center, we are fortunate to have one of the nation’s leading dental implant specialists in Dan Holtzclaw, DDS, MS.
The Teeth In A Day dental implant protocol is the most advanced and technically demanding procedure in all of implant dentistry. This is not a procedure that you want to trust to someone who simply “dabbles” in dental implants. If you are considering this procedure, carefully check the credentials of your dentist. Are they a specialist or a general dentist?
Dental specialists such as Periodontists and oral surgeons have taken up to 4 years of additional full-time training beyond the standard 4 years of dental school which all dentists take. Dr. Holtzclaw achieved his additional training during his service in the US Navy where he spent 4 full years working and studying at Naval Hospitals in Portsmouth, Virginia and Bethesda, Maryland. During this additional training, Dr. Holtzclaw not only gained extensive experience in dental implant surgery, he also completed an anesthesia mini-residency, treated multiple medical emergencies, and mastered multiple aspects of regular dentistry.
Did you know that many general dentists who place dental implants received their dental implant “training” at weekend continuing education courses? In fact, some dental implant continuing education programs “certify” a dentist to place dental implants after only 16 hours of actual training! Can you believe that? When you consider the fact that a board certified specialty trained dentist like Dr. Holtzclaw has over 17,000 hours of additional training in procedures such as dental implants, there is simply no comparison.
Dr. Holtzclaw is one of the most experienced Teeth In a Day dental implant surgeons in the United States. This surgery involves an immediately loaded set of teeth all on 4 to 6 total dental implants. He has performed hundreds of these procedures with an astounding success rate which exceeds that which is published in the dental literature. Due to his success and experience with this procedure, Dr. Holtzclaw is regularly asked to lecture about the Teeth In a Day protocol and other dental implant related procedures at conferences around the globe. In fact, Dr. Holtzclaw has even lectured for the dental implant company that invented and perfected this dental implant procedure! While other dentists attend lectures to learn about the Teeth In A Day dental implant procedure, Dr. Holtzclaw is the dentist giving many of these lectures.
