…”Think of it this way, you wouldn’t go to a general practitioner to have brain surgery; so why go to a general dentist for a procedure that similarly requires multiple specialists?“…
These days it seems like every dental practice in DFW offers dental implants. The issue, however, is that not all of these dental practices are truly qualified to offer quality dental implants. Not only are they not able to offer the quality you want, but they cannot offer the same level of safety as a dental implant specialist can.
Many dental implant offices in Dallas and Fort Worth only have one doctor (who is not even a specialist) performing all 3 parts of the dental implant process. The dental implant process should include a team of highly specialized individuals.
Think of it this way, you wouldn’t go to a general practitioner to have brain surgery; so why go to a general dentist for a procedure that similarly requires multiple specialists?
For safety and quality, it is, therefore, imperative for you to choose a dental implant specialist in Dallas. You want a practice that can ensure you receive the best dental implants and the best treatment. And all of this from individuals who are highly specialized in performing this complex procedure.
What can we offer you here at Archpoint? An entire team of specialists. The safest and top treatment experience, and the highest quality, yet still affordable dental implants.

1) MD Oral maxillofacial surgeons
2) Our Anesthesia Provider, and
Our team also includes our in-house lab & technicians. This team digitally designs and makes all of our patients’ new teeth/restoration pieces.
This unique formation of doctors and technicians is unmatched in the DFW area.
Why choose us: Our combination of specialists can provide the best dental implants & treatment
These are the people who make up our team of dental implant specialists…
1.) Oral maxillofacial surgeons
Oral maxillofacial surgeons are dental specialists who are trained to perform surgical procedures on the mouth, teeth, jaws, and face. While dentists can perform minor oral surgeries, they’re not oral and maxillofacial surgeons.
An oral surgeon spends an additional four to six years in training after dental school. This takes place mostly in a hospital-based surgical environment where they gain extensive real-world experience.
The average total length of education and training after secondary school for an oral and maxillofacial surgeon is 12 to 14 years. This training includes two to four years of undergraduate study, four years of dental study, and four to six years of residency training (six years includes two additional years for acquiring a medical degree).
An oral surgeon is our biggest differentiator when it comes to our competitors. Not only are they highly specialized, but due to their practical experience, they are also trained to mitigate any situation if a complication should arise.
Anesthesiologists are medical doctors just like your primary care physician and surgeon. They have the necessary knowledge to understand and treat the entire human body. Anesthesiologists administer medication for pain management and critical care. They ensure the patient’s safety during surgery; that the patients stay asleep and feel no pain. What patients often do not know is that these specialist physicians play a much wider role than just putting people to sleep for surgery.
It takes approximately 12 to 13 years to become an anesthesiologist. A bachelor’s degree takes four years, then medical school takes four years, and then another four years are spent as a resident.
At Archpoint Implant Dentistry, our anesthesiologist focuses on the patient from start to finish. They make sure they’re safe and comfortable throughout the entire procedure:
– Before surgery: Our Anesthesia provider works with the patient to ensure they are suited for surgery and can handle anesthesia. They conduct an extensive review of your medical history as well as answer any questions you may have about the anesthetic process. They will then administer the anesthesia before the surgery and monitor your vital signs throughout.
– During surgery: Our anesthesia provider monitors you throughout the entirety of the procedure – manage pain and keep vital signs in check. They also oversee special care for any chronic medical conditions that a patient may have, e.g. diabetes or asthma, throughout the surgery. If a problem arises during the medical procedure, the anesthesia provider is trained to mitigate the situation so our surgeon can continue uninterrupted.
– After surgery: Once the surgery is complete, the anesthesia provider continues overseeing the immediate recovery of the patient. They monitor the post-anesthetic effects and inform the medical team when a patient is able to go home or be moved. They also help to create a personalized plan to manage your pain once you are discharged.
Prosthodontists specialize in treating and handling dental and orally-structured facial problems. Specifically, facial problems involving missing teeth and misaligned jaw structures that require restoration.
A prosthodontist is highly trained in dental cosmetics, dental implants, crowns, bridges, dentures, temporomandibular disorders (TMJ/TMD), and more.
To specialize as a Prosthodontists takes approximately 6-9 years. After earning a bachelor’s degree in a science, aspiring prosthodontists must complete dental school and obtain a professional license. This is then followed by the completion of a 3-year residency program in prosthodontics.
These members of our specialized team, in sync with our Archpoint in-house lab & technicians, allows us to be a one-stop-shop for the best dental implants and patient care.
What should you take from all of this information?
The most important information you should take away from this is the reality of what you are getting if you go to your general dentist for dental implants. We suppose it may depend on how much you prioritize quality and safety.
Option 1: Your general dentist juggling all 3 necessary roles of the dental implant procedure. Option 2: an entire team of qualified specialists that can ensure quality and safety.
We offer 3 specialists under 1 roof at a price point which would be significantly higher if you were to see all those people separately.
At a general dental practice, you may pay [slightly] less for a single dentist to perform all three roles. But at Archpoint we’re offering [still] affordable dental implants with our full team of specialists and luxury treatment.
Our team collectively, not including our time at Archpoint, has over 34 years of training & experience. A general dentist who wants to perform sedation only needs to obtain a certificate. This certificate requires them to take a 3-day course. Yes, just 3 days.
That’s why we are different and significantly safer and more reliable than our competitors. Our team of carefully selected specialists works together. Having a team enables each member to remain focused on what they are best at throughout your procedure. They are able to operate knowing that their collogues can mitigate any situation to provide you with the best service and results.
