Meet Dr. Nick Gregory
Dr. Gregory grew up in Lake Charles Louisiana, the only boy of 4 children of Chris and Lynn Gregory. Growing up in a musical family he was involved in music ministry at a young age and this is something he continues to actively pursue. He attended McNeese State University earning a Bachelor of Science degree in Biological sciences with a minor in chemistry in 2007. He continued his studies at Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center, School of Dentistry where was awarded the Dental Student Oral Surgery Award from the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons and received his Doctorate of Dental Surgery in 2011.
During his last year of dental school training he realized a calling to serve through the specialty of oral and maxillofacial surgery. He continued his training and completed an oral and maxillofacial surgery internship at John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth, Texas where he was named outstanding Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Intern of the year for 2011-2012. He then was accepted to and completed a 4 year oral and maxillofacial surgery residency at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center in Memphis, Tennessee, serving as Chief resident in 2015-2016. Before entering private practice Dr. Gregory applied to and was accepted into a prestigious Surgical Dental Implant Fellowship (only one person is accepted per year) at the Dental Implant Associates of Colorado. There he gained extensive experience and advanced skills in full dentition reconstruction and dental implant procedures, most commonly referred to as the “All-On-4” procedure along with esthetic dental implant and advanced alveolar bone reconstruction grafting procedures. While Dr. Gregory was in his fellowship he also served as a staff surgeon at the Denver Health Medical Center, instructing oral and maxillofacial surgery residents in training. He was invited to lecture to the oral and maxillofacial surgery department at Hadassah Medical Center in Jerusalem, Israel in November 2016, where he spoke on the topic of Utilization of Zygomatic Implants.
