"Thank you all so much for the lovely tulips! They are so beautiful, and I was so surprised! I'm the luckiest person in the world to know such nice people! I love you all!" - Bev S
"I just wanted to say thank you & let you know what a wonderful job he did on my veneers. I also very much appreciate the time Dr. Rigdon took to make sure they were done before we left on vacation.
I have gotten several compliments on my smile lately and it's all due to everyone in the office. I couldn't be more pleased with the results. I can't wait to have the next set done!"
- Nancy E.
"When Dr. Oaks referred Dr. Rigdon for implants, she said he was the best
and only implant and restorative dentist she would recommend.
At the first office visit in March, 1993, I was hesitant to go ahead with the implants because of my advanced age and the cost. My daughter, Gloria, said,"Go for it" and so we did.
After extensive surgery, bone structuring and grafts, etc.- during which I remember no pain - the implants were finally in place. And, I now understand why the previous dentists could not fit me with dentures that did not hurt my mouth, and why Dr. Oaks thinks Dr. Rigdon is the best.
It has been nine and a half years since that first visit to Dr. Rigdon's office, and I love the implants, have had no problems with them, and no regrets. I have had many comments on my "pretty teeth." Gloria tells me that having the implants was one of the best things I have ever done for myself and I agree. I can chew my food without pain and eat anything I want. The implants are well worth the cost.
"I can't begin to tell you how much I appreciate all you have done for me regarding the excellent dentistry skill you have. In my opinion, you are a genius in this type of dental work. In essence, what you were able to do was correct three other dentists past mistakes.
I started developing abscesses in my lower right jaw several years ago when I was going to another dentist. All he did was give me antibiotics as needed. After a period of time, my bridge fell out.
The next dentist I went to for a while sent me to a specialist, advising him to put three pins in the lower jaw area, which eventually the middle pin fell over. It was put back in after a six month waiting period. When I went back the next time I was told the company in California where the pins were purchased had gone out of business and no parts were available.
I called the second dentist back and he never bothered to call me back each time I called. It appears I was abandoned....
Finally the City of Tulsa, Tulsa Police Department, dropped their coverage on dental insurance, so I went back to Dr. Roger Metcalf, who is a wonderful dentist. He made a referral to Dr. Rigdon, who immediately found that I needed bone grafts. He also advised that the previous small pins would never have been ample, so he put in much larger pins, etc. to finish the work. It turned out beautifully. My wife says that I look like a movie star with these perfect teeth implants."
"Instead of spending time in a dentist's office, believe me, I'd rather be fishing! But, I was in need of lower implants and found myself in your office. It is quite a place. I was always met with caring smiles and professionalism on every level. I felt more like a "friend" than a "patient."
The implants look great and work even better. They feel natural and I can chew anything. They are much better than anything I could have imagined.
Thank you all very much. Dr. Rigdon, you did a great job and I appreciate your desire for perfection as well as your professionalism."
"Thank you for your professionalism and your friendship. Your staff is also greatly appreciated. Your expertise and your workmanship have really changed my life at meals (and often between). My mouth loves you and so does my appetite. For 16 years my lower denture "floated" in insecurity, causing me to excuse myself halfway through a meal to recement the thing. Since my implants I can eat anything I find palatable and am not conscious of my dentures. I love it! However, most important is the friendship we have cemented, Terry."
- Walt P.
Thank you so much for the great job you did recreating my smile! I love the compliments I receive on a daily basis about my smile. As you know I perform at Caesars Palace as well as hundreds of other venues around the nation.
My new release "Tribute to Frank Sinatra" is my first release showing my teeth and we are getting multitudes of compliments from our listeners. The album is selling very well!! This is the 17th album in my collection.
- David Osborne
"Today you changed my life. I do not have to keep my mouth closed. Now I can smile. You have done what I thought was impossible. Thank you so much. Coming here and seeing you and your staff has been such a wonderful experience. The kindness everyone has shown me and the friendly atmosphere makes you want to come to the dentist. Again, I thank you. I am 51 and smiling for the first time in 35 years. Thank you Dr. Rigdon, you're the best ever."
- Janet H
"This all started back in May of 2000. I thank you for encouraging me to have the necessary work done and accepting me as a patient. You gave back to me a part of life that I had lost - my self-confidence, my smile and the ability to enjoy food (especially peanut M&M's). I thank God for you and your friend Dr. Misch"
"I just wanted to let you know that I love coming to your office. I get such a great service every time. Your staff is wonderful! You always take special interest in the work you do. I appreciate you."
"It has now been a year since I got my implants and hardly a day goes by without my noticing how neat it is to be able to eat anything without pain or embarrassment. I had dentures for almost 40 years and did not realize how much trouble I was having eating.
Thank you Dr. Rigdon for doing a great job. I recommend implants for anyone."
- Carol B.
"Thank you for doing such a good job on my caps! I really appreciate that. They look great! I've had many compliments on my teeth. It was definitely worth it!"
- Rebekah J.
"I want you to know that I am very pleased with the veneering process you have done on my teeth. I am really pleased with the way they look, and think it is quite an improvement.
You and your entire staff made my visits comfortable and I felt that I was in the best of hands.
Thank you for your excellent care and genuine concern not only during this procedure, but also for all the years you have been my dentist."
- Jean A.
"About a year and a half ago, I had veneers put on my 6 front teeth. I can't begin to tell you how pleased I have been with them and how natural they look! Even my parents couldn't tell. In fact, I have been so pleased with the way they look that I am considering having some put on my four front lower teeth."
- Sheila K.
"I would just like to say that I have the best set of teeth that I have ever had for 50 years. The implant from Dr. Terry F. Rigdon has been the very best thing next to my wife. It is so wonderful that I can eat anything I want to, chew my food, can smile, laugh; the things I wasn't able to do before. Thanks Dr. Terry you are wonderful."
- Chester B.
"After wearing dentures for 35 years it came to a point I couldn't keep my lowers in place. After being fitted with implants on lower, I have no problems now; steaks seldom if ever get too tough to chew. I have no trouble biting off an apple or anything else."
- Lee R.
"I am writing this letter to thank you and your most wonderful and helpful staff in giving me a "beautiful" smile! For years we talked about lengthening my front teeth and improving my smile, and I kept giving you excuses, like "my teeth don't really show that much when I smile" and "that's a lot of money to spend," and the list goes on and on.
In late December we decided to go ahead with the suggested treatment. In January I attended a Mary Kay Leadership Conference with several of my Director friends. They hadn't seen me in several months, but knew immediately something had changed. Something was different; they just couldn't figure out what. At that time, I was wearing my temporary crowns, but even those looked natural and beautiful. What's amazing is that now when I see a picture of myself, my smile is bigger and it's showing most of my teeth. I never realized I was subconsciously trying to hide them before.
Thank you, Dr. Rigdon, for being patient with me all these years and giving me a smile I can be proud of! My only regret is that I didn't do this years ago!"
- Jana A.
"Thanks for doing my implants on a Friday when normally you don't do patients. Thanks for your concern and care. I'm doing great - have not had any pain and have not even taken one pill for pain. You did a good job. I thank God for you."
Baby back ribs
Hagen Daz ice cream bars...
These are a few of the foods I can now bite into that I couldn't handle before implants.
I can also chew anything as well as my 12- & 13-yr -old grandchildren can. I consider Terry Rigdon a dental engineering genius for solving all the problems in my mouth and for providing adequate pain management. ...the outcome was definitely worth it and I would do it again and I highly recommend Dr. Rigdon."
- Jo S.
"I am so pleased with my "new" teeth! I could not ask for better treatment. The entire staff is remarkably efficient and friendly. I got just what I wanted - pretty teeth. Terry, I am in awe of your ability to do what you do. Flawless work."
- Wanda C.
"It is hard to believe (I was surprised) that it has already been over ten years since my implant was put in. Thanks to your help I have maintained good dental health, and the implant has been problem free. I look forward to many years of the same."
- Launa R.
"I can't thank you enough for the miracles you have performed on my teeth. The implants look and feel great. Your staff has been wonderful. I only wish you had an office near my new home in Southern California."
- Mary Linda M.
"Dr. Rigdon did a sinus augmentation and three implants for me. Surprisingly there was no pain....I truly was surprised how little discomfort there was."
- Betty S.
"Dr. Rigdon placed veneers on my upper front teeth and I used White and Brite on my lower teeth under his direction. I have been very satisfied with both procedures and feel more confident about the overall appearance of my teeth."
- Jean A.
"I want you to know how pleased I am with the veneers you made for my front teeth. The teeth were veneered for structural reasons, yet had I known how much better I would look with them I would have gotten them done just for cosmetic appeal!
The color of my teeth was difficult to duplicate, and I really appreciate your painstaking approach to making the match. My teeth look so natural no one guesses I've had dental work!"
- Beth G.
"Thanks for making my visit enjoyable and I appreciate having my return trip extended to 6 months.
My implants are great. I really appreciate the wonderful job you did."
- Carol B.
"We are very happy with Fred's caps. They improved his smile a lot. The color is perfect, it couldn't have been better. A very nice job."
- Pat R.
"I have had dental implants for over 12 years and I am well pleased with them. Good oral hygiene is one of the secrets to long-lasting implants. Dental implants will give the feeling of security that you do not have with dentures."
- Alice G.
"I enjoy my implants. I am able to eat the food needed for good health."
- Robert E.
"Thus far, I am very much satisfied with the tooth implant you did for me. The color, size and shape of the crown are excellent. The implant restoration is better than bridging because it doesn't appear to hinder the strength and integrity by attaching to the teeth nearby.
Also, the thought of a bridge with a metal strap across the roof of my mouth had little appeal to me. I'd rather continue chewing my ever-present trident gum. Thanks for laughing at my jokes! Also, the cookies!"
- Ray M.
"I have enjoyed my dental appointments with Dr. Rigdon. He makes an unpleasant task fun. My partial is great. Keep up the good work and that great humor."
- Georgia G.
"The best thing about the implants is the ability to eat apples and carrots without having to first cut them up. It's also wonderful not to have to carry denture adhesive in my purse wherever I go as I did with my old dentures. I would highly recommend this procedure to anyone considering it."
"Terry exemplifies professionalism. His practice is an extension of his personal lifestyle and beliefs. There has never been an office visit that I have left not feeling uplifted and motivated in my own life to excel to higher levels."
"The greatest trumpet player in the world is especially thankful and beholden to the greatest implant surgeon in the world."
- Billy H.
"Thanks for your excellent treatment - I like your style. Why do people use dentistry as something bad? I think it is good! I'll send them to you.
- Bill L.
"I have been coming to Dr. Rigdon for many years, and I've always appreciated the personalized service. Last year I had veneers put on and the difference it has made is outstanding."
- Deanna V.
"Just a note of thanks for taking care of me and my dental problem. I think I've done super and I'm thankful the Lord put you in my path."
"What can I say, but thank you, thank you, thank you!
Without a doubt, the best part of my makeover is my new smile. For years I gave half smiles or covered my smile with my hand. I even joked with people about being in the witness protection program to get out of having my picture taken. Not anymore! Now I really have something to smile about.
The most wonderful staff in the world is in this office. I have felt like one of the family from day one. You were all just as excited as I was about my makeover. I couldn't have asked for more, considering I did present as a challenge.
Again, thank you all so very much. I owe you all a debt of gratitude."
- Debbie E. K95 Great Makeover Winner
"Your patience and wonderful talent are very evident every time I smile. Thank you from the bottom of my heart."
"Your excellent work in providing an upper plate is really appreciated. At 85, I have had three other well-known dentists who have done work, but I honestly believe Dr. Terry is a better craftsman for a completed satisfactory product. The friendly atmosphere of your office with Debbie, Julie and Tracy is also appreciated."
