Dental implants are not new. Tooth loss has occurred since creatures evolved teeth. I personally have been replacing missing teeth in Palm Harbor since 1989. My first dental office was opened on April 23, 1988 on the corner of Alderman Road and US Alt 19 in Palm Harbor, FL, 34683. I practiced dentistry (including placing and restoring dental implants) in that Palm Harbor location until January 2000. In January 2000 I opened my current Palm Harbor dental office to be closer to Tampa Florida. My current dental office is located near the corner of Tampa Road and East Lake Business Road, a short 3 miles from Tampa Florida. My address is 3490 East Lake Road, Palm Harbor, FL 34685.
I have been both formally educated in dental implants and I trained under the mentor-ship of O’Hilt Tatum Jr from 1989 – 1995. Dr Tatum has been a pioneer in dental implants. He first placed dental implants in his home state of Alabama before moving to the Tampa Bay area. My first opportunity to meet this incredible man was at the Alabama Dental Implant Congress in 1989. My Palm Harbor dental office had only been opened for one year and I was very eager to begin transforming my general dental practice to one that focused more on the use of dental implants as a means of tooth replacement. The Tampa area is an ideal place to practice dental implant focused dentistry.
