Oral surgeons manage a wide variety of problems relating to the mouth, teeth, and facial area. As your surgical health professionals, we want you to be confident knowing that we are a team of highly trained and skilled clinicians. In order to achieve the best possible service and results, we are committed to continued education and learning. All of our staff attend lectures, meetings, and specialty courses to stay informed and up-to-date. We are constantly striving to provide state-of-the-art care by utilizing the newest techniques, products, and equipment. Dr. Wert speaks to both professional and non-professional groups to share their knowledge and clinical experience. Our staff are also members of various professional surgical and dental associations which helps keep us cognizant of changes within oral and maxillofacial surgery.
Infection control in our office is of the upmost importance. To protect our patients and ourselves, we maintain strict sterilization and cross contamination processes using standards recommended by the American Dental Association (ADA), the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons (AAOMS), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and the Center for Disease Control (CDC ).
All of our staff, administrative and clinical, are CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation) certified.

A Positive Experience
Building a foundation of trust by treating our patients like family has been vital to our success over the past 39 years. We understand how uneasy some patients may feel about their visits so we seek to make a difference by providing a positive and relaxing experience. Our entire team is dedicated to personalized care and service, making every office visit as comfortable and pleasant as possible.
Most of our patients have been referred to our office for surgical care. We value the trust shown by doctors, previous patients, and family members when they recommend our office for a patient's care. However, a direct referral is not necessary to be seen in our office; anyone can call our office and make an appointment. Additional information on the referral process can be found here. We are continually blessed with the opportunities to get to know our patients and their families, and are humbled to be able to serve their oral surgery needs.
