The area of oral surgery includes tooth extractions, biopsies, frenulectomies (releasing a tied lip or tongue), and many other procedures. Some dentists choose to refer all surgery to a specialist. This can be costly and can put limitations on a treatment plan and require more visits. Dr. Robertson has performed thousands of tooth extractions and other surgical procedures. He has the experience to perform simple extractions, multiple extractions (eg. for a denture), and extraction of impacted teeth safely, comfortably, and successfully. If a patient prefers treatment from a specialist, or if the nature of the case indicates the need for advanced training Dr. Robertson will happily refer to one of many good specialists in our area.
Dr. Robertson is always a professional but showing personal knowledge of family and concern for you and family.
