Real Patient Stories
“I struggled for over twenty years with a bridge I had as the result of an auto accident, which knocked out an upper tooth. Almost from the beginning, I had difficulty with the bridge repeatedly falling out. Finally, I was referred to Dr. Claiborne as an implant candidate.
“From the first visit, Dr. Claiborne took the time to listen, and he showed a genuine interest in helping me with my dental issues. His knowledge and expertise were clearly evident, and he was very thorough and meticulous with matching the implant with my natural teeth. It is almost impossible to tell I have an implant.
“The staff is always welcoming and efficient. I leave my dental appointments feeling like they genuinely care about their patients.
“I am continually getting compliments on my smile, and this is a direct result of the excellent care received from Dr. Claiborne. And I can eat any food without worry my tooth will fall out. In fact, I completely forget I have an implant!”
“My teeth were deteriorating, and my daughter recommended Dr. Claiborne. The implant procedure went well. There was counseling before, during and after. I felt quite assured through the whole process, and I am very pleased as well as satisfied with the experience.
“Dr. Claiborne is very professional, knowledgeable and sensitive to his patients’ needs, and his staff are all well trained, friendly and welcoming.
“The implants are just like having a healthy set of natural teeth.”

“Dr. Claiborne has been very straightforward and honest about the procedure. He tells you like it is. The staff is very friendly and always accommodating. I never had any pain or bruising and was back to work very quickly. It was a pleasant experience for something I was dreading and putting off. I wouldn’t go anywhere else.
“Everyone always complained because I didn’t smile, and I can smile in pictures now!”
“I had no bottom teeth, and I found out about Dr. Claiborne from my daughter’s dentist.
“The whole implant procedure went just as Dr. Claiborne said it would. He explained every step before I agreed to have the procedure.

“Dr. Claiborne has a caring personality, and I can tell he loves his job. He and his staff gave me a sense of comfort and put me at ease about the procedure. From the front office staff to the dental assistants, I can’t speak highly enough of their professionalism. Everyone I have come in contact with really makes me feel welcome, and they have a friendly and professional demeanor.
“I now feel like I have a million-dollar smile, and I have no worry about the maintenance or slipping of dentures.”
“A molar with a previous root canal had deteriorated, and I needed an implant. I was referred to Dr. Claiborne.
“Dr. Claiborne really helped me feel comfortable throughout the entire implant process. He thoroughly explained the procedure before and during treatment when adjustments were needed. He also explained my options well but didn’t recommend any unnecessary procedures.
“Dr. Claiborne is a perfectionist in his work, so I can be confident my implant was done right and will last.
“The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. The hygienists listen to my concerns and clean my teeth with consideration of my requests.
