INTRODUCTION

Background Information

Oral and maxillofacial surgery requires many additional years of hospital-based surgical and anesthesia training after graduation from dental school. Drs. Beatty and Cottam are both dentists and physicians and as oral and maxillofacial surgeons, they manage a wide variety of problems relating to the mouth, teeth and facial regions. They practice a full scope of oral and maxillofacial surgery with expertise ranging from dental implant surgery to wisdom tooth removal. This also includes techniques designed to rebuild bone structure with minimal surgical intervention and optimal patient comfort. We can also diagnose and treat facial pain, facial injuries, and fractures.

Our offices are fully equipped to provide (IV) sedation or outpatient general anesthesia with continuous monitoring of the patient during and after surgery.

Surgical Staff

The surgical staff at Summit Implants & Oral Surgery are experienced, certified oral and maxillofacial surgical assistants, who assist in administration of IV sedation and surgery. We also have a trained registered nurse (RN) to assist in surgery. All staff are informed administrative personnel, well-versed in health and insurance policies, and are CPR certified.
