A Comprehensive Scope of Care

Our doctors offer a full range of oral and maxillofacial surgery procedures. We offer wisdom tooth removal, tooth extraction, impacted canine treatment, several types of dental implants, bone grafting, jaw surgery, pre-prosthetic surgery, cleft lip and cleft palate surgery, and facial trauma treatment. We also treat temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders and sleep apnea, and have experience in oral pathology. Advanced techniques including stem cells, platelet rich plasma, and bone morphogenetic protein are incorporated into several procedures for faster healing and more predictable outcomes.

Flexible Financing Options

We understand that some portion of your care might not be covered by insurance and strive to help patients afford the level of care they deserve. The cost of dental implants, for example, can be a long-lasting investment in your health. We are always up-front and honest about treatment pricing, and offer CareCredit® financing to break up the total cost of your treatment.
