We believe the best way for you to maintain your oral health is through education, and we take the time to ensure you understand all of your treatment options. Working alongside our surgeons is our friendly, knowledgeable staff who can assist you with scheduling and financing. Together, we have proudly served the Monroe, LA, community for over 20 years.

Comprehensive Treatments

The team at Oral Surgery Associates offers a full range of oral and maxillofacial surgery procedures, ranging from wisdom tooth removal and dental implant placement to reconstructive jaw surgery. Our experience in oral pathology allows us to treat an extensive range of conditions. 

We incorporate advanced techniques into our procedures to promote faster healing and achieve more predictable results. You can benefit from advancements like stem cells, platelet-rich plasma, and bone morphogenetic proteins, all of which are shown to stimulate bone and tissue growth after surgery.

Dedicated to Your Comfort and Safety

Our team works hard to ensure you are as comfortable as possible during every stage of your treatment. We offer a variety of sedation options, including nitrous oxide and oral sedation. Our surgical staff includes certified oral and maxillofacial surgical assistants who are trained in the administration of intravenous (IV) sedation. We also have a certified nurse anesthetist to assist with surgery.  

"I cannot say enough good things about the entire staff at Oral Surgery Associates. The doctors and assistants have always provided excellent care. I cannot imagine going anywhere else for oral surgery!" Michael J.

Ultramodern ​Dental Technology

We use the latest dental technology to provide advanced care to our patients. Our state-of-the-art digital x-rays and scanners capture detailed images, which we can use to ensure accurate diagnoses. Tools such as our iTero® digital scanner and 3-D cone beam computed tomography (CT) system allow us to design personalized surgical plans tailored to our patients' needs.

In addition to our scanning equipment, we also have a soft tissue laser. This device supplants the traditional scalpel method in many of our procedures, including extractions and wisdom tooth removal. The laser seals blood vessels along the way to reduce bleeding, inflammation, and recovery time.
