Oral and Maxillofacial surgery requires additional years of hospital-based surgical and anesthesia training after graduation from dental school. As oral and maxillofacial surgeons, Drs. Ingalls, Lesnick, Politano, O’Day, and Weinstein manage a wide variety of problems relating to the mouth, teeth and facial regions. Our surgeons 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. We also diagnose and treat facial pain, facial injuries, and fractures.
All surgeons in the office are Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) certified and Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) certified. They also are all certified in the administration of anesthesia. Our staff is trained in assisting with Intravenous (IV) sedation or outpatient general anesthesia in our state-of-the-art office setting. Patients are continuously monitored during and after surgery.
The surgical staff at Colorado Regional Oral Surgery are Certified Dental Anesthesia Assistants who are knowledgeable in the perioperative and emergent care management of patients undergoing office-based outpatient anesthesia. The surgical staff is able to effectively communicate pertinent information to patients and their escorts, as well as members of the healthcare team. Our team members are CPR certified and well-versed in health and insurance policies.
