  A questionnaire was sent to subjects who had received treatment with implant-supported fixed or removable prostheses in the predoctoral implant program at Dalhousie University between 1994 and 2004. The questionnaire included 15 questions aimed at evaluating overall patient satisfaction, oral function, patient information, treatment costs and time line. A total of 83 active patients were identified from patient records and mailed the questionnaire. The response rate was 65%. High overall patient satisfaction rates were reported for all items regardless of type of implant treatment.
