There are many reasons why people seek help from an oral surgeon. For one person, it could simply be a painful, infected tooth, or their child needs his or her wisdom teeth removed. For someone else, it’s a more severe diagnosis — a misaligned jaw or oral cancer. For others, it’s an entirely new set of teeth so they can finally smile with confi-dence.

No matter your oral surgery need, the doctors at Oral Surgery Associates of North Texas (OSANT) are here to pre-serve your smile and dental health. And the odds are high that they are merely a stone’s throw away.

With five locations in Plano, Allen, Rowlett, Cedar Hill, and Preston Hollow, and five oral and maxillofacial surgeons who consult with one another every day, OSANT has quite possibly cornered the market in terms of accessibility and knowledgeable, compassionate surgeons. They use the latest procedures, tools, and methods to provide life-changing services ranging from corrective jaw surgery to wisdom teeth removal, dental implants, bone grafting, trau-ma, TMD, and more.

“The main thing for us is to be accessible, cover the Metroplex as best we can, and be available for all of our pa-tients,” Dr. Douglas Dingwerth said on behalf of his colleagues. “With five doctors, if one of us is unavailable and can’t get someone in, we have another office that is open and reasonably close. From a convenience standpoint, this is a tremendous benefit.”

He added, “We help people either get out of pain or get their smile back. It’s about providing a better quality of life.” OSANT has been serving North Texas since 1984. The five doctors who have been with the group for quite a long time and regularly see patients at multiple offices. Along with Dr. Dingwerth, who has been with the group since 2002, those friendly faces include Drs. Maxwell Finn, William Walstad, Phillip Newton, and Michael Ray. All received exten-sive training in the broad field of oral and maxillofacial surgery. They pride themselves on tackling anything, whether you have a dental emergency or have questions about an elective procedure to improve your smile.

“Wisdom teeth, extractions, dental implants, All-on-4/new teeth in a day, bone grafting, exposure of canines, and bi-opsies outline the majority of in-office cases. There are other types of surgical cases that the doctors of OSANT per-form, but these are treated in a hospital-based setting,” Dr Dingwerth said. “With our offices spread out throughout the Metroplex, we provide easy and quick accessibility for patient care and treatment. This is extremely important when patients have pain or problems that may limit their ability to eat, chew or even perform daily functions. The doc-tors at OSANT are here to help patients maintain their smile, but they can even create a new one.
