We are very proud of the excellent care we provide our patients. Read testimonials from our happy patients.
We first discovered this office when my husband had to have an emergency implant . He was taken immediately and and with utmost care. We fast forward and take our son Tim (just yesterday) to get his wisdom teeth removed during summer break. Doctor Ivry was his surgeon . He and his staff were all lovely and explained everything to our son and us…
I’d give Dr. Park and his staff ten stars if I could. i broke a front tooth (#10) while on vacation. It was a tooth weakened by a root canal. As soon as I got back home, I notified my dentist and got an early morning appointment with her. She evaluated the tooth, determined that an implant was necessary, and made an immediate call to Dr. Park’s office…
Dr. Ting is amazing! He was very informative, as he explained what he was going to do, how, and why. The surgery went very smooth – it was painless and there was a very easy recovery! It was also super fast, as the actual surgery took under 30 minutes! Overall, I had an amazing experience at the Santa Monica Dental Center for Oral Surgery and Dental Implants.

Dental implants provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. With implants, you can rediscover the comfort and confidence to eat, speak, laugh, and enjoy life. Implants are expected to last for a lifetime, don’t decay and won’t affect your surrounding teeth.
According to the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, 69% of adults around the ages of 35 to 44 have lost at least one permanent tooth. For those missing teeth, or needing teeth replaced, there are three cosmetic options to fix the problem—dentures, bridges and implants. Though dentures and bridges used to be the go-to replacements for tooth loss, modern technology has made dental implants an increasingly popular choice. Around 3 million people get implants each year, which is a total of 5.5 million implants, according to the American Academy of Implant Dentistry.
The cost of dental implants varies for each individual person as no two mouths are the same. When reviewing and comparing costs, it’s important to consider that dental implants are “medical devices” which require a larger team of dental professionals and that the placement of dental implants is both art and science. You are, in fact, buying a service rather than a product – a service that can change your life and give you permanent teeth that will last a lifetime.
Santa Monica Center for Oral Surgery & Dental Implants also has multiple financing options to help you achieve the smile you’ve always wanted! We’re more than happy to answer any questions you may have regarding insurance and financing options.
The best way to get an accurate idea of what your dental implants will cost is to come in for a consultation with our treatment coordinators and surgeons.
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root, typically a titanium screw, that is placed into your jaw bone to hold a replacement tooth or a bridge or denture to restore multiple missing teeth.
