Your initial appointment will consist of a thorough discussion, highlighting your past medical and surgical histories, current medications, known drug allergies and reason for visit. Next, a complete head and neck examination will be performed with a focus on your specific needs and concerns as part of your initial consultation. Drs. Galey, Kreps, Roccia , Tunder and Bentjen will then explain your diagnosis and treatment options in detail, taking time to answer any questions that may arise. Occasionally, surgery can be performed the same day as the consultation. However, a complex medical history or treatment plan will require an evaluation and a second appointment to provide treatment.
Dr. Kimberly Bentjen attended Pacific Union College in California, receiving a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration while taking pre-dental courses, and graduated Summa Cum Laude.

An Implant Supported Overdenture is a contemporary restoration that has revolutionized the way surgeons and dentists think of replacing a full set of teeth. Standard dentures are unsecured prostheses with inherent limitations. Most often, dentures are painful, inconvenient and unstable. Such dentures can make chewing foods difficult, limiting the foods that you once enjoyed. Modern dentistry can help with implant supported dentures. The Implant Supported Overdenture treatment concept replaces your missing teeth with a full dental bridge supported by dental implants. Fewer implants are needed and overall treatment time and cost is reduced.
