What is Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery?
Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery is a specialty of dentistry that deals with the diagnosis and treatment of diseases and defects of the mouth, jaw and facial areas. The Latin root words Ora (mouth), maxilla (jaw), and faci (face), explain the long, foreign-sounding name.
A board Certified Surgeon must complete an oral and maxillofacial training program of at least three years following dental school. The program must be approved by the American Dental Association. Following completion of the program, the doctor must pass a rigorous oral and written exam administered by the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery to be certified as a Diplomate.
All of our surgeons are board certified.
Dental Implants in Columbus
Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. The person who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat virtually anything and can smile with confidence, knowing that teeth appear natural and that facial contours will be preserved.
Dental implants are changing the way people live. With them, people are rediscovering the comfort and confidence to eat, speak, laugh and enjoy life. For more information about dental implants or to schedule a consultation appointment, call our office.

Patient Review from Brenda L
I had 2 teeth extracted by Dr. Zwickey. He is the best Oral Surgeon I have ever been to. I didn't feel a thing I would never consider anyone else. In fact, I am going back for an Implant consult. The office staff makes you feel comfortable from start to finish. The main thing I loved was how everything was explained to me and his assistant took her time answering my questions regarding aftercare!!!!

Patient Review from Judy D
This office is one of the best organized I have experienced. This is my third procedure.Each time my waiting room time was minimal. The staff members are friendly, caring, organized, and very efficient. They kept me informed of each thing they were going to do. Dr. Zwickey is very gentle and careful not to cause any discomfort. The communication with my dentist is also very good.

Highly recommend very professional nice and clean office. I didn’t feel a thing. I had to get about 8 or 9 up teeth and one back bottom tooth removed with an immediate upper denture. They got me comfortable and next thing i knew i was waking up ready to go home and it was over. Very pleasant experience!! I would give 10 stars but there’s only 5 lol 😉

Patient Review from Daryl Y
I can't say that having a tooth extracted was fun, but it was as pleasant of an experience as it possibly could be at West Georgia Oral and Facial Surgery. When I called for the appointment and explained that I was in pain, they found a way to have me seen almost immediately. The check in and the check out process was really a breeze. The staff and Dr. Zwickey were extremely friendly, courteous, and professional. I felt like the evaluation and the procedure were both top notch and best of all I was treated very quickly and the procedure was nearly painless. The facility is super nice, easily accessible, and appeared to me to have all of the most up to date equipment. If I ever need oral surgery again, this is where I will go. I highly recommend this business!

Patient Review from Deaven W
One of the most pleasant experiences I’ve ever had at a drs office and that should say a lot since I was having my wisdom teeth removed! Very minimal swelling and no pain or soreness to date! Haven’t even had to take pain medicine. Since my husband and I drove 2 1/2 hours to go here, the dr gave me a little extra numbing meds to last me till we got back home and it worked perfectly.

Patient Review from Robert N
Everyone was very courteous, friendly, and efficient. I had a molar extraction (#4) and prepaid. But after it was finished the procedure was lowered to a different level and the cost reduced by $150. This was very honest of them, and I am very thankful.

Patient Review from Ronald P L
The staff and the Doctor were very professional with the care and information I needed for after care.

Patient Review from Morris L
In January I will have been a patient of Dr. Zwickey for 6 years. I have repeatedly had issues with dysplasia (precancerous tissue). His incredible diagnostic and surgical skill has meant that he removes just enough of the abnormal tissue to have a clean border without removing too much healthy tissue. This is confirmed by biopsy. When appropriate he has used other interventions like laser. Right now I have no cancer and no loss of function. It is difficult to express just how grateful I am for that. The other staff I have dealt with have been great. They are friendly, reassuring and sincerely caring as well as good at their jobs. For my last several biopsies Dr. Zwickey’s assistant has been Skylar. I am always glad to see her when I come in. She is a sweet wonderful person and I know I’m in good hands.

He always calls to check on me after the procedure, which is absolutely wonderful. The staff, from the front desk, to the surgery staff, is so caring, making sure that I am always comfortable. I will always recommend West GA Oral and Facial Surgery to all of my friends and family. Thank you so much for the wonderful care you give your patients.
