Looking for a Great Oral Surgeon Near Cincinnati?

We often get calls from potential patients who have heard good things about Wilmington Oral Surgery, but aren’t sure if they want to make the drive to be treated by our expert team. After all, finding a great oral surgeon can be hard. And finding a great oral surgeon near you? Harder.

It is hard to put a price on excellent health care. When choosing a practitioner, people usually talk to friends and family, look at reviews on Facebook, Healthgrades or Vitals, and/or interview the potential provider in person. These are all good ways to decide with whom you want to entrust your health. It’s mouth surgery – you don’t want to walk into an office blind.

At Wilmington Oral Surgery, we are pleased that most of our new patients come from referrals. Patients who have had good results here naturally tell their circle of friends, so we don’t have to do a lot of advertising. To us, the best marketing is the testimonials of happy patients; it’s a bit of an accomplishment for someone to feel an oral surgery was actually a good experience.

Is this Oral Surgeon Worth the Drive?

If you live in Dayton, Cincinnati, Springfield or even Columbus, it will be a bit of a drive to Wilmington Oral Surgery. Yet we have many patients who live in these areas. Why do they come so far? Because we have a reputation for providing friendly, highly professional, and compassionate service. We’re also unique in some of our more cutting-edge procedures, and we bill services in a different manner than most oral maxillofacial surgeons, making our procedures more affordable for our patients.
