Faster Scheduling & Less Costly

More Expedient Scheduling & More Affordable Than a Hospital

Scheduling this procedure with Facial Surgery Group will most likely be faster and less costly than having the procedure done in a hospital. Upon referral, the suspicious area will be examined and possibly excised. The excised tissue is then sent to a Board Certified Oral Pathologist for evaluation. Though the word “Biopsy” can sound alarming, most pathology reports indicate benign results and no further treatment is required.

Life Changing

I lost a front tooth when I was 11 years old. For the last 20 years, I've warned a  couple of different partials. Everyone of them was uncomfortable and looked bad. When my dentist sent me to Dr. Tanner to talk about a dental implant, I was doubtful. My new tooth feels like a part of me. I can't stop smiling.



A Piece of Cake

I was so afraid to have my tooth pulled that I didn't sleep the night before. Everybody there was so nice and made me feel so comfortable that it was a piece of cake. I don't know how to thank you enough.



Happy Wife, Happy Life

I grew up without much dental care. I was embarrassed by my teeth. I guess that somewhere along the lines, I learned to hide my smile. Then I had kids and naturally, their needs came first; music lessons, sports, braces, college. When the last one graduated from college, my husband insisted that it was my turn. My new teeth are beautiful. My husband says it was worth every penny. He says, "Happy Wife, Happy Life".
