About the Practice

Designed and built with their patient's comfort and safety in mind, Carmel Mountain Oral & Facial Surgery first opened in October of 2004. Digital imaging, digital x-ray systems and electronic medical record keeping are just a few of the innovative technologies used in their state of the art office.

Dr. Kuklok believes dental implants are changing the way people live. They are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth which look, feel and function like natural teeth. The person who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat virtually anything, knowing that teeth appear natural and that facial contours will be preserved.

They are proud of their efforts in maintaining their patient's smile for a lifetime by utilizing current techniques and equipment.

Your Initial Consultation

During the first appointment, a thorough review of your medical history will be taken, including medications you are currently taking. Dr. Kuklok will continue with a comprehensive examination including the jaw, joints, soft tissues and teeth, and complete the process with a thorough screening for oral cancer. The examination is followed by a treatment conference where Dr. Kuklok will provide all options for treatment, identify your needs and goals, and answer any questions.

If treatment is indicated, informed consent for each procedure will be discussed, written informed consent forms reviewed and, if applicable, procedure specific informed consent videos will be viewed.

Implant Restorative Network

Dr. Kuklok works closely with some of the finest general dentists in the area. Close collaboration between surgical and restorative colleagues results in the best possible outcomes for patients, particularly with dental implant treatment.
