Despite our office's high retention experience - one staff member left during the shutdown and decided to retire and another staff member left the country recently for personal reasons.

ABOUT OUR ORAL SURGERY PRACTICE:
This is a high-end FEE-FOR-SERVICE (no PPOs or HMOs) practice with one oral one surgeon, 3 surgical staff, and 2 front staff. We have been in our location for 31 years.
We work as a team - each one of us is key to each patient's care to "have the best possible experience".
Patient Demographics: Our patients and their families are highly intelligent, educated, and expect the highest level of care. 40% of our patients (or family) are doctors or other healthcare professionals. We see a broad range of international patients as well - many ethnic and religious backgrounds are represented.
Since we do not participate with any insurance plans, each and every patient actively chooses to come to our office for their care. This is key since they could have gone elsewhere for less cost. Instead, they come to our office without regret! Our staff are key to assuring that this care model works. We actively think and act to assure that patients leave our office thrilled with the care they receive. Patients then, hopefully years later, return happily or refer their family and friends – this is an upbeat and nurturing office!
Referral Demographics: We are honored to have the best dentists refer their patients to our office. Constant communication with these dentists, their staff, & our mutual patients is critical! All of us enjoy getting to know our patients (and their families) & our referring offices. A like-minded outgoing, upbeat, mature person is needed. Empathy and a desire to help is key. We see lots of implant patients & wisdom teeth patients - young patients as well as old are seen. Many patients are seen for more than one appointment & over the course of multiple months. We look forward to welcoming our new team member!
