What Is The Patient Experience Like?

Most patients begin with a comprehensive consultation with their oral surgeon.  During the consultation, you will discuss your medical history as a whole, as well as your current conditions.  This will help your doctor develop the best course of action for you.

How Qualified Are Penn Dental Oral Surgeons?

Our oral surgeons are among the very best.  All of our surgeons go through extensive training prior to entering the practice.  Not only do they have the licenses in dentistry, but they are also licensed medical doctors.  These qualifications usually reflect eight or more years of additional training.  Through our residency program, we continue to add to our excellent team by recruiting the very best new oral surgeons.

Are Common Oral Surgery Procedures Covered By My Insurance?
