Oral Surgery Associates of Alaska, LLC in Anchorage offers a variety of oral and maxillofacial surgical procedures, including dental implants and teeth extractions. Surgeons Dr. William F. Bergeron, Jr. and Dr. Ray Holloway are committed to providing the care you need with a gentle touch. Both surgeons are board certified in oral and maxillofacial surgery and received extensive hospital-based training in anesthesia and surgical procedures. Dr. Bergeron graduated from the University of Maryland School of Dentistry, while Dr. Holloway earned his degree from Loyola University Chicago College of Dental Surgery.

Oral surgeons remove wisdom teeth and other impacted teeth, but also provide a full range of surgical services. The doctors are on the staff at Alaska Regional and Providence Hospitals and provide emergency room coverage for facial injuries. These types of injuries often require long-term rehabilitation and reconstruction, which the surgeons deliver at their Anchorage office. The doctors understand that injuries to the face or teeth due to an accident or sports-related injury can be very traumatic. They take the time to listen to your concerns and explain every step involved in the reconstruction or repair process.

Your comfort and well-being is the primary concern of the staff at Oral Surgery Associates. Intravenous anesthesia sedation is offered for surgeries, and team members are trained in all aspects of surgical procedures, from pre-op through post-op care. They use the latest techniques and diagnostic tools to provide quality care. The I-CAT 3-Dimensional Imaging CT Scan is used to diagnose conditions of the jaw, teeth, mouth, bones, and sinuses. The state-of-the-art scanner provides detailed images of these areas and is less expensive than a CT scan at a hospital.

Whether it’s time for your wisdom teeth to come out, you need a dental implant, or you’ve been considering reconstructive jaw surgery, Oral Surgery Associates of Alaska, LLC offers high-quality care with a personal touch. Make an appointment today by calling (907) 561-1430 or visit their website for more information.
