Atlanta Oral & Facial Surgery Company Overview
The Doctors of Atlanta Oral & Facial Surgery have been providing specialty surgical services since 1980. Over the years, the group has had various names, but the core set of Doctors has stayed together. In 2001, the group consolidated and formed one company, Atlanta Oral & Facial Surgery. Our surgeons’ core values of surgical excellence and patient safety were coupled with an ambitious plan to provide those services to as many patients as possible.
Unique Clinical Strategies
In order to realize this goal, two unique clinical strategies were adopted. The first was to serve as many patients as possible by participating in a broad range of insurance plans including Medicaid. The second was to centralize as many administrative duties as possible. This strategy allowed AOFS to both become a patient advocate in sorting out the complications of oral surgery insurance, which often involves dental and medical coverage, as well as to empower the surgical offices to focus on patient comfort and safety as well as referral doctor communications. With this strategy in place, AOFS consolidated our seven offices and began a campaign to vastly expand its service to patients throughout Atlanta. By 2012, AOFS had grown to 21 oral surgery offices, one plastic surgery office, and 19 doctors, easily becoming the largest oral surgery group of its kind in the United States.
Maintaining Surgical Excellence
During this time of growth, AOFS surgeons continue to maintain their surgical excellence and work closely together to provide effective surgical techniques with the latest in technological advancements. With a referring dentist network of more than 2,500, AOFS is instrumental in promoting key elements of Patient Standards of Care. In recent years our surgeons have shown the surgical justification of 3-dimensional x-ray, and promoted the advantages of dental implants. Today, AOFS assists referring dentists in placing thousands of dental implants each year.
