Oral Surgery

Skilled Oral Surgeon in Elgin, IL

Elgin dentist Dr. David Rice is unique in his approach to serving his patients. He wants to be a partner in their oral health—not merely a health provider. This is one of the reasons he continues to rigorously study from and with the leaders in dentistry and oral health.

Dr. Rice is celebrated as a mentor by the Center for Advanced Dental Learning, a distinction held by fewer than 120 dentists worldwide. He also serves as a Mentor (CI) at the prestigious Kois Center in Seattle, WA, renowned for its postgraduate dental training programs. Notably, Dr. Rice has reached the pinnacle level of achievement, a status attained by fewer than 25 dentists globally.

His patients benefit in many ways: oral surgery is just one area where these benefits shine through.

“What a wonderful experience. I am deadly afraid of dental work. Dr. Rice was wonderful. He explained the procedure and step by step. He was honest about my options. He helped me breath and relax during my wisdom tooth extraction. The office girls are super nice and very friendly. Will be bringing my husband and daughter.”

Providing You With Comfortable, Familiar Care From Start To Finish

Dentists must have specialized training to perform certain procedures that go beyond the typical education they receive.

By using his services you save time, and you don’t have to wait after your diagnosis for another specialist who can perform the procedure.

Oral Surgery Procedures We Are Proud to Offer

Our practice is pleased to offer a variety of solutions for whatever you might be experiencing.

Dr. Rice performs the following oral surgery procedures:

Accelerated Healing and Recovery

We understand that comfort is one of your greatest priorities when choosing a dentist. Dr. Rice uses tools and techniques to protect you against bacterial growth and to help you heal more quickly and efficiently after your oral surgery.

One of these techniques is to use your own plasma to introduce additional growth factors during the procedure that will minimize pain and quicken the healing process.

Untreated teeth or gum issues have the potential to cause serious harm to your overall physical health. We are dedicated to giving your mouth careful attention during our procedures so that you can live a happy, healthy life.

Sit Back, Relax, We’ve Got This!

It’s understandable that the thought of having mouth surgery can make you feel uncomfortable and anxious. If you are one of the many people that experience fear at the thought of going to a dentist, you are not alone. Our primary goal during treatment is to set your mind at ease and address your concerns.

Dr. Rice wants you to be able to relax, and understand the procedures that we perform. We consider you a health partner, and we value your questions. We want you to feel like you have a thorough understanding of the changes that we are making to your mouth at every step along the way.

We invite you to ask any questions that you have, and we promise to give them the care and dignity they deserve.
