Evergreen Oral Surgery in Tacoma, Puyallup WA
Oral and maxillofacial surgery requires additional years of hospital-based surgical and anesthesia training after graduation from dental school. As an oral and maxillofacial surgeon, Drs. Wightman and Slovan manage a wide variety of problems relating to the mouth, teeth, and facial regions. Drs. Wightman and Slovan practice a full scope of oral surgery with expertise ranging from dental implants and wisdom tooth removal to checking oral pathology and treating sleep apnea. This also includes techniques designed to rebuild bone structure with minimal surgical intervention and optimal patient comfort. We also diagnose and treat facial trauma, including facial pain, facial injuries, and fractures.
From the moment you enter our state of the art practice you will feel the warmth of being surrounded by people who care deeply about your health, about your needs, and about your comfort. Our professional staff greet you by name, and every effort will be made to make your visit as stress free as possible. You will also find that we are in constant communication with your dentist to make sure that everyone is on the same page and that your care will smoothly transition from your dentist to our office and back.
Dr. Wightman & Dr. Slovan prioritize providing a calm and compassionate environment, treating each patient as though they are family. There can be significant anxiety around dental procedures of any kind.
