Your family dentist has referred you to our office and naturally plays an important role in optimum oral health.

We regularly communicate with your family dentist during your treatment as well as during follow up.
Our office is committed to your safety. Throughout the day, we continuously and thoroughly sterilize our equipment for your protection and adhere to or exceed every standard of infection control set by the Center for Disease Control and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. Your comfort is also a top priority. We strive to make our office relaxing and pleasant environment. We are extensively trained in providing sedation and general anesthesia. In addition, we communicate with you every step of the way.
Oral and maxillofacial surgery requires additional years of hospital-based surgical and anesthesia training after graduation from dental school. As an oral and maxillofacial surgeon, Dr. Herrera manages a wide variety of problems relating to the mouth, teeth and facial regions. Dr. Herrera practices a full scope of oral and maxillofacial surgery with expertise ranging from dental implant surgery and wisdom tooth removal to corrective jaw surgery. This also includes techniques designed to rebuild bone structure with minimal surgical intervention and optimal patient comfort. We can also diagnose and treat facial pain, facial injuries, and fractures.
