Why Choose Atlanta Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery?
Nurse Mary RN discusses the difference that Registered Nurses make in caring for dental patients
In his years of practice in metro Atlanta, oral surgeon Dr. Loetscher has developed a reputation both as being one of the leading oral and maxillofacial surgeons in the area and as having one of the largest reconstructive practices in the region. As a clinician, Dr. Loetscher has developed the skills of a true hybrid surgeon, with equal and current expertise in both soft and hard tissue grafting (with use of autogenous bone) for implant reconstruction. Specializing in dental implant surgery, wisdom teeth removal, and orthognathic surgery, he is highly experienced in all new modalities of oral and maxillofacial treatment.
A board-certified oral and maxillofacial surgeon, Dr. Loetscher attended the prestigious Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery training program at Ohio State University, where he also obtained a master’s degree in Bone Grafting. The Ohio State program is renowned for its training programs in dental implantology, orthognathic surgery, and anesthesia. In 2015, Dr. Loetscher was recognized as a Kois Specialist in Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, a status achieved by few oral surgeons. Dr. John Kois’ Institute in Seattle is considered by many to be the elite education forum for dentists to achieve the highest degree of current, accurate knowledge. Both he and his staff attend regional and national meetings to stay up to date on the latest and safest techniques.
We are the only implant surgical practice in the metro Atlanta area with full-time lab technicians, allowing us to fabricate provisional teeth attached the day of implant placement (sometimes the next day for full sets of teeth). These beautiful and high-tech CAD/CAM milled teeth range from a single tooth to a whole arch of teeth. With proper site preparation and implant placement by Dr. Loetscher and hand-crafted new teeth from our in-office lab, the quality and durability of our custom provisional teeth are unmatched.
The staff at Dr. Loetscher’s office is well-known for the pleasant environment they provide. All members of our experienced team, including schedules, surgical staff (three highly experienced and trained registered nurses), and insurance team make it their priority to help you feel comfortable at our office. Our insurance team will help you with your insurance needs from pre-treatment estimates to following up with your insurance to maximize your benefits. In addition, with the advanced training and use of technology by Dr. Loetscher, patients can receive a superior level of care for even the most complex treatment—all in the comfort of our state-of-the-art office.
Dr. Loetscher leverages the most advanced technologies to provide innovative surgical experiences to improve patient comfort and the clinical success of his treatments. Our practice is one of the most advanced and best equipped outpatient surgery centers in the state. Our state-of-the-art, sterilized operating rooms are equipped with anesthesia machines and monitors, all of which are inspected regularly. We use the Kodak 9500 Cone Beam CT scanner for low dose radiography and precision surgical care; advanced tissue engineering with BMP, PRP, and PRGF; and 3Shape TRIOS® imaging for highly accurate restorations. In addition, we utilize the Zirkonzahn® “Face Hunter” to maximize the esthetics and function of your oral rehabilitations and reconstructions.
Loetscher is formally trained in all anesthesia techniques, including IV sedation and general anesthesia, in addition to being a Fellow in Anesthesiology by the American Society of Dental Anesthesiology. As part of his commitment to superior patient experiences, he provides anesthesia with a level of quality and safety that far exceeds the requirements designated by the state of Georgia. With three registered nurses on staff, dedicated surgical suites with back-up generators, and many other clinical features, Dr. Loetscher and his team consistently maintain the best anesthesia and environment possible.
