Our Administrative Staff

Our patient care coordinators, also known as our friendly scheduling and treatment planning problem solvers, collect information from patients prior to their arrival at our office. At the time of your surgical planning visit, our coordinators will assist our oral surgeons to achieve the goals you have set with your dentist.

Our coordinators are also accustomed to working with many dental PPO insurances and in preparing financial treatment plans for both insured and non-insured patients.

Our Surgery Staff

Our surgery team members consist of Registered Dental Assistants with advanced training in oral surgery procedures. These caring assistants will help gather clinical information and digital imaging for our surgeons and to help you make decisions about your care.

Our oral surgery assistants will support you with preoperative teaching. They will take care of you during your procedure under the direction of our surgeons. After discharge, they’ll then provide you with postoperative education and support, so you are able to best care for yourself at home.
