About Our Oral Surgeons

Our doctors and staff are firm believers that oral surgery doesn’t need to be a traumatic experience. We pride ourselves in excellent sedation during your procedure. Whether you are looking for a general anesthetic or just want us to “take the edge off,” we are here to reduce anxiety in a safe and comfortable way. Rest assured, our goal is to provide compassionate, state-of-the-art care and to exceed your expectations.

Oral and maxillofacial surgery now requires an additional 4-6 years of hospital-based surgical and anesthesia training after graduation from dental school. As oral and maxillofacial surgeons, our doctors manage a wide variety of problems relating to the mouth, teeth, and facial regions. Our doctors practice a full scope of oral and maxillofacial surgery with expertise ranging from dental implant surgery and wisdom tooth removal to corrective jaw surgery. This also includes techniques designed to rebuild bone structure with minimal surgical intervention and optimal patient comfort. Our office can also diagnose and treat facial pain, facial injuries, and fractures.

The surgical staff at Summit Oral Surgery & Implant Center have a combined 84 years of experience in the field and are all CPR and Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) certified.
