Assuming I have no medical issues that would prevent me from having either, which is the more preferable to do: dental implants one (or few) at a time or entire mouth procedure at once?
I am trying to choose which way to go.
One (or few) at a time (most likely under local anesthesia) is how it usually practiced by general dentists.
Entire mouth procedure at once is usually under general anesthesia, and this is how it is done by dentists doing only implant work (say at a clinic in Bangkok).
I am trying to see if there is anything I am not considering, such as maybe few at a time gives dentist more time and opportunity to get it right, or maybe that entire job at one time means that this will be done by a dentist who is an expert at the implants.

Thanks for bringing your question to Uclue. We'll try to get you an answer, but it would help to have some additional information first.
Are you quite sure that multiple implants are you only option? Many dentists will recommend a bridge, rather than implants, to span a section involving several teeth:
Dental Health and Bridges
Is that an option for you? Or are implants the only way to go? Let us know.
