Abstract: The purpose of this survey was to assess patients' satisfaction with their dental implants and the treatment outcomes in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Materials and Methods: The information regarding patients' opinion was collected through a selfadministered questionnaire distributed during recall appointments or filled through phone contact. A total of 111 subjects of different demographic variables, who were treated in governmental and private clinics and have had the restored implant(s) for more than one year, were included in this report. Results: The result of this study indicated that 59% of the subjects were highly satisfied with the overall treatment. Seventy-one percent (71 %) were highly satisfied with the esthetic results, whereas 78% were highly satisfied with function. About 76% were willing to undergo same procedure again and 79% would recommend it to the others. Eighty-seven percent (87%) reported comfort with the attending dentists and 67% were satisfied with the preoperative information. On the other hand, 22% indicated that they were neither satisfied with the treatment period nor with the cost. Conclusions: It can be concluded that most of the patients were generally satisfied with the implant treatment and some variables such as esthetic and time required for completion of treatment are critical factors for the overall satisfaction. Therefore, dentists who practice dental implants treatment should pay attention to these factors
