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 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.
