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 Michele M

Dr. Zwickey, along with his caring staff, could not have been any kinder to my 89-year-old mother, who has always suffered with severe anxiety when it comes to dentists. In fact, I honestly can’t remember when she ever visited one. Their overall professionalism put us both at ease, and she has recovered completely in less time than was anticipated. We would both highly recommend West Georgia Oral Surgery to our friends and family.

Patient Review from Ebony A

Best care I have ever received. I tend to avoid dentist, orthodontist and oral surgeons. Dr. Allen and his staff were excellent. I received a call that same day from staff and Dr. Allen. I highly recommend!!

Patient Review from Brian J

I can not say enough about the quality of care and overall amazing experience I have had personally . My wife also had all her work done by Dr. Allen and to this day still raves about the care and quality she received. As someone who has some dental anxiety the entire staff made my visits stress free and they even went above and beyond to work me in on one visit and still kept the wait time to under 10 minutes and got me pain free and taken care of in no time. I will be returning for future work !!!!

Patient Review from Mike C

I needed an emergency extraction, and was in a lot of pain. They had taken me immediately and the staff were caring, professional, and kind. They were also very reassuring because I am extremely afraid of going to any dentist, let alone an oral surgeon! I experienced zero pain, and they explained everything thoroughly to my wife on how to take care of me, and answered all her questions. Or so she tells me; I was a little out of it at that point ;). Would HIGHLY recommend! Dr. Allen was great and I will never go anywhere else.

Patient Review from Jeff H

Wonderful team of medical professionals. Highly recommend them. My children have had their wisdom teeth removed and the entire process from start to finish was smooth and easy. I love the way they treat their staff and their patients. It is evident both Dr. Allen and Dr. Zwickey love what they do! Kudos to the entire team at West Georgia Oral and Facial Surgery!

Dr Allen is confident, kind and professional. I felt trust in his ability as a professional upon first meeting him. He eased my mind of worry when I needed teeth extracted.

Patient Review from Lewis K

Called one day, had an appointment the next day. I had a consultation with Dr. Allen, he gave me the diagnosis, asked if I wanted to go ahead and have it done today, I did, and was out in less than 1 hour total. Dr Allen explained everything. A very pleasant experience! I would recommend Dr Allen to anyone needing any type of oral surgery. And his staff is the best!

Patient Review from Charles L

Thanks Dr. Zwickey and your trusted assistant for relieving me of my severe tooth pain. Your assistant Rock and I wish that I had gotten her name. She was awesome! I postponed getting my problem tooth extracted for almost a year due to the deadly virus (COVID 19), but I had to take measures to get my tooth extracted once the pain began getting the best of me. My oral surgery was done in an exemplary fashion, and I now have No pain! Dr. Zwickey and his assistant made me feel very comfortable, and they were professional and courteous. I'm happy to have chosen West Georgia Oral and Facial Surgery, and I recommend you to all of my family and friends.
