Newton Dental Associates has created The Center for Oral Surgery and Implantology, a state of the art Oral & Maxillofacial surgery center within our practice. The Center allows our surgeons the space and technology to perform surgical procedures to keep your smile healthy and perfect. Since oral surgery is performed in-house, our surgeons can collaborate with all of the other specialists on staff to provide you comprehensive oral health care. This also eliminates the need to travel to a separate location.
The center was designed with patient comfort and care in mind, from the welcoming lobby to our Cone Beam 3D image scanner for proper placement of dental implants as well as superior diagnostic images.
The Center also welcomes referrals from general and other specialty dentists in the area who need quality oral surgery procedures for their patients.
