Dr. Saad Bassas, DDS
Dr. Saad Bassas brings to i-Implant Dentistry 20 years of experience in implant dentistry.
His approach to your treatment starts with patiently listening to you. Then, after a complete and thorough examination, he reviews and discusses the diagnosis and all treatment options. “I am proud to provide my patients with the highest standards in dentistry, treatment options, and patient comfort. I am very detail-oriented by nature and fully use this in my profession. It is my pleasure to address all your questions and concerns.”
Dr. Bassas is board certified in prosthodontics as well as oral implantology/implant dentistry. He is among only a handful of prosthodontists in the United States who completed dual residency and training in oral surgery and prosthodontics, which makes him highly and uniquely qualified in both placing and restoring dental implants.
In addition, Dr. Bassas is specially trained and licensed to offer IV sedation for the comfort of all patients who desire this service. He performs hundreds of implant and bone graft procedures per year, which has made him a leading expert in the field. His concern, enthusiasm, and passion for implant dentistry set him apart from many of his peers.
He has been living in Minnesota and practicing dentistry there since 2003. He is a diplomate of both the American Board of Prosthodontics (2017) and the American Board of Oral Implantology/Implant Dentistry (ABOI/ID) (2009). When Dr. Bassas obtained his diplomate status in 2009; only 359 dentists in the United States have passed this rigorous board certification process since 1969. This honorable title makes him well qualified for all dental implant and bone grafting procedures. Dr. Bassas also holds the title of master in the College of Sedation in Dentistry.
Dr. Bassas received his doctor of dental surgery degree from Aleppo University School of Dentistry in 1998, where he ranked first in his class. He then completed an oral surgery residency and graduate studies at Damascus University, where he also served as chief of residents.
Because of his special interests in implants and aesthetic dentistry, he completed the maxicourse in oral implantology at New York University as well as the postgraduate program in esthetic dentistry at the University of Minnesota.
Dr. Bassas started in 2003 as an associate dentist at Health Partners Dental in St. Cloud prior to opening his private practice in Sartell in 2006. Despite all the extra training, knowledge, and experience he had gained practicing oral surgery, implant, and restorative dentistry for 15 years, his enthusiasm and interest for more intense education and expertise pushed him to go back to school. He attended the prestigious program of Advanced Education in Prosthodontics at the University of Minnesota.
Dr. Bassas, his wife Rihab and their son, Aboud (18) and daughters Sarah (12), Leena (9) and Jenna (4) have been living in Minnesota since 2003. They love the family-friendly atmosphere and warmth of the community. His favorite activities include bicycling, soccer, swimming, and traveling. He also enjoys history, architecture, and music. “I’ve visited many states in the US,” he says, “but to be honest, Minnesotans are truly warm-hearted and friendly. It is a great place to work, live, and raise a family.”
