AFFORDABLE DENTAL IMPLANT SERVICES
Thank you for visiting our website.
We hope you will find it interesting and informative. The Leigh Smile
Center is a General Dentistry practice that provides a full
compliment of dental procedures from cleanings and scaling to Dental
Implant Placement and Restoration. We are located 45 minutes North
of St. Albert, in the rural community of Westlock. Although we are
located in Westlock, we
serve patients from Edmonton, Calgary, St. Albert, Red Deer, Fort
Saskatchewan, Sherwood Park, Slave Lake, Fort McMurray, Peace River,
Grande Prairie, Spruce Grove, Barrhead, Whitecourt, Camrose, Wetaskiwin,
Swan Hills, Edson, Athabasca, and other communities in Alberta. Many of
our patients come to us from other Provinces such as B.C., Ontario, and
Saskatchewan. We even have patients from outside of Canada.
We have made every effort to organize our website so that it is user
friendly. Most pages will have a "Side Menu" that will direct you to
individual pages. Every page without a side menu will have a "Top Menu"
(top right corner) with access to the same pages. If you have questions,
please use our "Contact Page". We look forward to hearing
from you, and hopefully meeting you as new patients.

If you are seriously considering dental
implants, you should do some comparative shopping. Compare prices in
terms of the TOTAL fee ... not just the placing of the titanium implant.
For instance, does the fee include the
'Standard of Care' CBCT
SCAN (3-D X-ray) the
Surgery Technique SURGICAL GUIDE, the Consultation Fee, any additional radiographs, a
Zirconia Ceramic Crown, the Abutment/Post, and the Laboratory Fee? You
may find SIGNIFICANT differences in prices from dental office to dental
office when you compare 'apples to apples'. Our fee is ALL INCLUSIVE.
Your comfort is important to us.
When you come to the office, we want you to feel comfortable.
We know that a Dental Office is not everyone's favorite place to spend
some time. So we will do everything we can to help you feel relaxed, and
feel confident that we are looking out for your best interests.
We are a friendly bunch, so don't be surprised if you see lots of
Whether you have found us through our websites, or you have been
referred to us by an Alberta Dentist for cosmetic or dental implant
procedures, we will take the time to explain everything in detail as
well as providing you with a comprehensive and complete
fee quote for every
procedure. No surprises.
for the Replacement of Missing Teeth:
Before any Dental Implant procedure, we provide
potential patients with a FREE Dental Implant Consultation. There is a
$400 fee for a CBCT
NOTE: If the patient proceeds with the
Implant Placement and
Restoration at the Leigh Smile Center, the
$400 CBCT Scan fee is
of the overall price

saving to the patient. If not, we will be happy to provide you

Dentists provide a valuable service to the public, and that service
should come at a reasonable price. We believe it is important that
consumers/patients be fully informed and knowledgeable about any medical
or dental procedure that may affect their health. As a recent
investigative TV program has shown, costs for dental procedures in
Canada can vary widely. It is always wise to do some research in order
to ask the most relevant questions of your Dental
professional. An informed consumer is a wise consumer, and we make sure
that our patients are made fully aware of each and every aspect of the
procedure, including costs and aftercare. The Internet is an excellent
source for dental information, and we hope that our site will be helpful
in your decision to have dental implants placed. Since cost is one of
the major factors in the decision to have Dental Implant procedures, we
make it our policy to be completely transparent with all our patients,
so that there are no 'surprises' or hidden costs.
At the Leigh Smile
Center, Dr. Leigh performs BOTH the Placing Phase (inserting the implant
into the bone) and the Restoration Phase (attaching the abutment and the
crown) of Dental Implants; or, in the case of implant dentures,
attaching the bar, or framework, that will support or stabilize the
dentures. This can result in substantial savings to the patient.
TRAINING AND EXPERIENCE: MOST IMPORTANT
Patients and consumers should be aware that there are
no Dental Implant "Specialists" in
Alberta or Canada. To date, the Alberta Dental
Association & College, and the Canadian Dental Association do not
recognize Implant Dentistry as a "Specialty" field in Dentistry. No
Dentist in Alberta (General Dentist or Specialist) is allowed to tell
patients that they are a "Specialist" in Dental Implants, or that they
"Specialize" in Dental Implant procedures. This would be a direct and
serious violation of the ADA&C Code of Ethics. The placing and
restoring of Dental Implants is a service that Dr. Leigh (a General
Dentist) offers at his Smile Center.
The number of Dental Implants he has placed and
restored throughout his long career, his extensive background,
qualifications and training in Dental Implants, and his 98.5% success rate
arguably qualify him as an expert in Dental Implant procedures. If you would like information on
his experience and credentials in dental implant procedures, or a copy of his Curriculum
Vitae, please contact Debra (Dental Implant Coordinator) at:
Recently, the Royal College of Dental Surgeons of Ontario (RCDSO) has
established guidelines and educational standards specifically for
Dentists who intend to perform dental implant procedures in Ontario.
Other Provinces will likely establish the same or similar standards.
According to the RCDSO, "The provision of dental implant treatment
requires a specific base of knowledge and clinical skills for both the
surgical and prosthetic phases of treatment." The RCDSO states: "The
level of complexity of the cases dentists elect to undertake should
reflect the commensurate level of training and courses they have
successfully completed and experience they have acquired."
FOUR VERY IMPORTANT QUESTIONS TO ASK:
As you continue through the website to the "Fees" page, you will find
4 VERY IMPORTANT QUESTIONS
you should ask of any Dental professional who may be performing dental
implant procedures. It is important, also, to ask for a "fee quote" that
represents EVERY aspect of the procedure ... not just the cost of
placing the dental implant and the dental implant itself. There can
be significant differences in costs among those providing the service,
or aspects of the service (such as only the placing, or only the
restoring of the implant, or both). Therefore, it is VERY important to
obtain a complete fee quote, as well as information on the experience of
the Dentist who will be performing the procedure, and with whom you
intend to place your confidence. Dr. Leigh's practice is a Full-Time
Implant Placement and Restoration practice. Dr. Leigh and his
dental surgical team of three Alberta Dental Association Registered
Dental Assistants (Delia, Anita and Michelle ... all Level II RDA's)
provide all aspects of dental implant procedures. His Associate
Partners, Dr. Courtney Wong and Dr. Nicholas Teoh
(General Dentists) provide excellent cosmetic dental procedures,
preventative dentistry, and dental implants and restorative dentistry for
families and patients. If you require dental restorations such as
porcelain veneers, partial or complete dentures, crowns and bridges,
inlays and onlays, teeth whitening, dental cleanings or many other
dental procedures, our dental professionals are here to make your visit
as relaxing and comfortable as possible.
