Protect Your Smile with Tooth Extraction
"I've had headaches more painful than my extraction." Hear from Our Patients
They were amazing from the start. I needed to get my both bottom wisdom teeth extracted. The whole staff was very kind to me from the front desk ladies to the nurses and doctor. The day of my procedure I was a nervous wreck, I honestly have a big fear of dental work. But the nurses were comforting me and one gave me a hug. I just felt more at ease in their care.View On Google

Excellent customer service! I had all four of my wisdom teeth removed here at once. They explained the entire procedure to me before I decided to go ahead and have the surgery. The staff was extremely professional and made sure that I was comfortable the entire time. I would recommend this office to anyone! I was also impressed with how clean the office and operating room was!View On Google
I can not say enough good things about this office and Dr. Dillard! I was going to have to wait two weeks just to get an appointment at all of the other oral surgeons in town, but Dr. Dillard's office got me in super quickly and they were extremely nice! I will be recommending them everyone I know!View On Google
Restore Your Smile after an Extraction
There are many options to replace a missing tooth, but dental implants offer the most complete tooth restoration available.
A dental implant is a small post that is inserted into the jaw. After the implant has fused with the bone, it is paired with a tooth-shaped restoration to fully restore the tooth's structure, from root to crown.
No other tooth restoration includes the root, which is the essential part that sends signals to the jaw to replenish the bone. Without this stimulation, the bone will deteriorate, weakening the tooth socket and jaw. Unlike many dentists, Dr. Dillard has extensive training in the highly technique-sensitive field of implant dentistry.
