If your carrier does provide coverage for dental implants, the insurance company will reimburse you for your benefits.

Several years ago, my periodontist recommended that I consider having several implants to correct long standing dental disease conditions. More importantly, he strongly recommended I employ Dr. Joseph Kravitz based on his personal knowledge of Kravitz’ expertise and skill in this area.
I followed his advice, and from the time of my initial contacts through years of having experienced his results, I have never had reason to doubt the wisdom of choosing Joe Kravitz to re-engineer my mouth back to health following years of neglect. Although I initially did not look forward to these procedures with pleasure, I must say that the end results proved to be as promised, there was never any serious discomfort, and the entire procedure was completed over a very few months, far sooner than if I had chosen an alternative. I strongly endorse Dr. Kravitz and his professional services, and would not hesitate recommending his clinic for any dental restoration projects.

Dr. Kravitz and his staff have a way of making what could be a very unpleasant and painful experience anywhere else, one that is actually informative, enjoyable and pain-free. I appreciate his impressive credentials and years of experience, but even more than that, I appreciate Dr. Kravitz’s caring nature, his ethics, and his ability to make his patients feel at ease and well-informed. Growing up a “military brat,” I changed dentists every few years, so I have seen and felt the spectrum of quality, expertise, personalities and care. I can honestly say that Dr. Kravitz and his staff provide the highest quality care, they make every patient feel like their only patient. After finding this wonderful team, I will never change dentists again.
