“Hi! Just seated the implant supported PFM's on #2 and 3. I reviewed OHI and stressed the importance of that to prevent disease.  He is returning this coming week for me to check and adjust as needed.  He was so pleased the day we seated them, he is ready to come back to UCLA for #14 and 15!”
- Dr. J.A. Phoenix AZ
