Why Choose Our Practice?
When it comes to picking an oral surgeon, we know that you have options. Personalized, gentle, comprehensive patient care is our number one priority.
Here are just a few things that make our practice unique:
Who We Are
Oral and maxillofacial surgery requires additional years of hospital-based surgical and anesthesia training after graduation from dental school. As board-certified oral surgeons, Drs. Torio, Decoteau, Burk, Madden and Farr, as oral and maxillofacial surgeons, manage a wide variety of problems relating to the mouth, teeth, and facial regions. Drs. Torio, Decoteau, Burk, Madden and Farr 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 doctors can also diagnose and treat facial pain, facial injuries, and fractures.
We firmly believe education is a lifelong process that does not end after dental and medical school. We strive to expand our knowledge and hone our skills through continuing education courses for our doctors and staff. We are proud to offer the latest advances in specialty dental care and surgery. We derive great satisfaction from knowing we provide our patients with genuinely state-of-the-art care.
Oral surgery is complex and life-changing. To provide optimal results with minimal discomfort, we seek out and implement the latest technologies, including CBCT, 3D imaging, intra-oral scanners, and computer-drafted surgical guides. These technologies enable surgical results unparalleled in precision, accuracy, and safety.
