JP Dental & Implant Center
Your Dentist in Grand Junction, CO
The down time of the pandemic allowed our office the opportunity to serve Medicare patients with the intent to place more implants. We soon found and were surprised that such a large population of patients, especially elderly, have significant dental infection left untreated. These infections, if left untreated, cause poor overall health and, in rare occasions, can result in fatalities. Our passion to help this underserved population has inspired us to make the decision regarding the future of our practice. We feel we have the responsibility and the capability to provide this unique type of patient with the best quality of care and utmost attention. We are the only dentist in Western Colorado with the ability to utilize both dental and medical insurance. We know this change will benefit our community.
With this being said, it is with mixed emotions that we Dr Brandon Wilcox and Dr John Poovey, are announcing our decision to discontinue the practice of preventative dentistry, which includes, hygiene (cleanings), fillings, crowns, bridges and root canals. Our practice has decided to focus our services on major, oral reconstruction dentistry, including bone grafts, implants, and restorations associated therewith. It has been a great pleasure providing health care for you over the years, and it is not easy for us to make this necessary change. Our practice has grown to the point that we can no longer provide the time and quality of dental care required by and deserving of all our patients. We have chosen to transition solely to an Implant Dental Center effective July 30, 2021.
Our office is available for, and will continue to be available for emergency care. Patients that are currently scheduled for restorative treatment will receive that treatment; however, we do recommend you start looking for a new dental provider to continue your preventative care. We recommend the following dentists who are accepting patients. Our practice has been in contact with them.
