If you have never visited or sought treatment from an oral surgeon, you may wonder how they differ from general dentists or other oral health care providers. Drs. Stephen Chan and Aidan Phan have earned both their DDS and MD degrees and completed years of additional extensive training required to specialize in oral and maxillofacial surgery. Unlike most dentists, our doctors received six years of surgical training after dental school and are also credentialed to administer various types of anesthetic and sedation, including general, oral and IV. Surgical success depends on training and experience. Our doctors perform thousands of surgical cases per year, as opposed to most dentists who may attempt a few surgical cases during the course of their general practices. Because of this reason, our doctors may have expertise and treatment options not available at most general dentists’ offices.
You will benefit from our doctor’s expertise in many other areas as well, including a carefully thought-out office, designed with the particular needs of oral surgery in mind. Our space is comfortable, modern, and will allow you to experience stellar treatment in peace. Drs. Chan and Phan utilize advanced techniques, materials, and technology and invest significant resources in the most current instruments and team training to elevate the care we provide. They also undergo continuing education in order to stay ahead of the curve on the most recent trends and techniques in oral surgery.
