I’ve been pricing dental implants. For the most part, dentists are about the same price. However, there are two dentists who are significantly less expensive than the others. I mean thousands of dollars difference. Is there a reason not to go to these more affordable dentists.

That’s hard to answer, but I would be cautious about anything that much less of a price. There is a difference between affordable dental implants and cheap dental implants. It could be as simple as this being a dentist new to implants and he’s lowered his prices to draw in business and experience. This is a complicated procedure, so you’ll have to weigh how you feel about his or her experience.
Some dentists, however, are a little more unethical about it. The purposefully use cheap implant materials, to keep their cost down. That can cause serious complications, including infections and loss of jawbone.
I’d verify what kind of training the dentists have and go from there. Talk to him or her about why they are so much less expensive. There are safe ways to get this procedure done affordably.
