With experience of placing more than 25,000 dental implants, DIA has helped thousands of patients reclaim their hope, confidence, and smiles.
Dental implants have become the standard for the replacement of missing, failing, or damaged teeth. With DIAarch™ implants, DIA Dental Implant Center can give you a new permanent implant smile in just one day!
DIA Dental Implant Center was founded by Dr. Dan Holtzclaw. Dr. Dan Holtzclaw is widely recognized as one of the world’s leading authorities on “teeth-in-a-day” dental implant treatment. He has published more than 60 scientific publications in peer reviewed dental journals related to dental implants and has given more than 150 main podium implant lectures at major conferences all over the world.
Dr. Holtzclaw has been honored by Dentistry Today Magazine as a Leader in Dental Implant Education for 13 consecutive years and is a recipient of the International College of Dentists Excellence in Research Award.
Through his experience in placing over 10,000 dental implants, Dr. Holtzclaw developed the DIArch™ process for providing patients with a new set of permanent implant teeth in just one single day. Dr. Holtzclaw has personally trained every doctor at all DIA Dental Implant Centers to perform his DIArch™ technique.
DIA Dental Implant Centers are part of a professional affiliation of dental implant practices operated by oral surgeons, periodontists, prosthodontists, and restorative dentists. With the specialized techniques used by DIA Dental Implant Centers, such as zygomatic and pterygoid implants, nearly all patients qualify for same day dental implants from a dental perspective. Prospective patients require an initial workup that includes an oral examination, 3D radiographic evaluation, and medical history consultation. Some patients with certain medical histories may not qualify for surgical treatment. “Teeth-in-a-day”, “one day implant teeth”, “same day implant teeth”, etc. refers to the fact that on the day of surgery, patients will have teeth removed (unless all teeth are already missing, dental implants placed, and a screw retained prosthesis secured to these implants on the same day as the surgery. While this first set of teeth are permanent in the fact that they are secured to the dental implants by screws, these teeth are typically not the final set of teeth as the patient will be allowed to heal prior to the delivery of the final set of teeth. Furthermore, the patient will be allowed to suggest desired changes to the initial set of teeth prior to the fabrication of the final set of teeth. The initial set of screw retained implant teeth are permanent in the fact that they are not removable by the patient and can only be removed by personnel in a dental office. With proper care and maintenance, dental implants can last a lifetime depending on the age of the patient when the implants were originally placed. Studies show that dental implants can last over 25 years with proper home care and regular professional maintenance.
