He later attended Indiana University for oral and maxillofacial surgery training and his surgical residency.

Unfortunately, necessary oral surgery procedures are not always covered by dental or health insurance plans. Our team will work with your insurance company to determine what services they will cover. We will then work with you to determine the best financing option for your situation. We accept CareCreditTM financing, which can allow you to make payments for a specified period of time with no interest. We also offer in-house financing options. Oral surgery is almost always a necessity, so we do our best to make our services as affordable as possible for our patients.
