Expertise in Dental Implants
Placing dental implants since he began practicing with Commonwealth Oral & Facial Surgery, Dr. Ferguson believes that dental implants are the state-of-the-art choice for restoring missing teeth and oral function. His personal philosophy and goal for each patient is to help them through the implant process with minimal time and minimal discomfort.
Commonwealth Oral & Facial Surgery is unique when it comes to dental implant treatment. Each of the offices has been updated in the areas of implant patient education and specialized staff training, due in large part to Dr. Ferguson's research and commitment to the implant practice. There are dedicated Implant Coordinators in each of the four offices to meet the needs of patients and referring dentists. As a result, the practice is now able to offer the highest quality dental implant and bone grafting procedures at whichever office is most convenient for patients.
