Why Choose Us?
You have many choices of oral surgeons in this area. This practice is set apart because YOU are the center of your own experience at our practice. We customize the patient experience to assure the most comfortable anxiety free experience possible. Premedication for anxiety, full sedation, nitrous oxide, and other modalities are all employed at our practice routinely.
While many providers may accomplish oral surgery procedures for you, this is the area that we specialize in. Therefore procedures in our office are done quickly, effortlessly and with much faster recoveries. Oral and facial surgeons spend 4-6 years in the hospital sharpening skills in general anesthesia, maxillofacial trauma, pathology, wisdom tooth extractions, advanced bone grafting for dental implants, placement of dental implants, and many other procedures as well.
Further, Dr. Patel embraces a culture of safety in her practice. Her assistants are trained in the safe administration of anesthesia, and are currently obtaining the DAANCE certification (Dental Anesthesia Assistant National Certification Examination), which is the highest standard of anesthesia knowledge for oral surgery assistants.
We have also taken our share of the responsibility for the opioid crisis by spending time talking about postoperative pain management. Utilizing Exparel, a non-opioid injectable medication, into the site after surgery, frequently prevents the need of any pain medication at all for several days after the procedure is done.
