As an oral and maxillofacial surgeon, Dr. Potaczek manages a wide variety of problems relating to the mouth, teeth and facial regions. Dr. Potaczek enjoys removal of wisdom teeth, placing bone grafts and dental implants, as well as a variety of other oral and maxillofacial surgical procedures such as biopsies, frenectomies, expose and bonding, fiberotomies, facial injuries and facial fractures. Our goal is to provide your treatment with as much care and comfort as possible; as such intravenous sedation is offered as well as nitrous oxide sedation or local anesthesia.  Our staff is trained in assisting with Intravenous (IV) sedation or outpatient anesthesia. Patients are continuously monitored during and after surgery.
