Ron,

If the implant has been placed but not restored (not yet had the "tooth" portion mounted on top of it), in theory any dentist should be able to complete the work.

Since there are different brands of implant systems, as well as sizes and matched parts, there might be an issue of getting the right abutment to screw onto the implant you have. (Your previous dental records should have that information if things can't be figured out.)

And also, the new dentist would need to feel comfortable with the work that had already been performed, since the success of their treatment would be predicated upon that.
