We’re completely dedicated to giving you the confident smile you deserve
Dr. Frank started his practice to make your experience with oral surgery office a more pleasurable one. We specialize in bringing you top care with procedures like implants, wisdom teeth extractions, regular teeth extractions, and sedation dentistry. Over the years we have become a practice of a “specialized” specialist, which means we focus our practice on a limited number of specialized procedures executed with outstanding care.
