Like many professionals, we pride ourselves on our high level of technical skill and the excellent results we get with patients. After all, that’s the reason we’re here: to provide oral surgery services at the highest standards of care possible. However, for us, it goes deeper than this. We don’t want to just give the patient the treatment they came for; we want to give them more than they expected.
What does this mean?
It means that we don’t merely view our job as “treatment.” It’s more than that—it’s a whole package. It involves providing top-notch care, for sure. However, it also includes taking the time to really explain things to our patients so they understand why they need the treatment. It includes incredibly personalized customer service so that visits are hassle free and enjoyable. It includes providing a relaxing atmosphere and alleviating the tension in what could otherwise be a stressful situation.
In short, it includes a million and one details that go into making sure each patient receives expert surgical care as smoothly as possible—and at the highest level of comfort.
Oral Surgery and Overall Health
Our mission is to help as many people as possible, to stomp out infection in every one of our patients and to make people look and feel their best.
We want to educate patients and help them make informed decisions. We don’t want to just do surgery on a person. We want to help improve their overall health. All parts of the body are connected and what happens in the mouth affects everything else.
Therefore, we want to help people improve their overall health and lead happier, healthier lives.
A Different Kind of Oral Surgeon
When you visit Capital Oral & Facial Surgery Center in Washington, D.C., you’ll find a different type of dental practice. From the moment you step through the door to the completion of your treatment, our goal is the highest possible quality experience. We continually train our staff to ensure they’re up to date and highly competent. Even the design and look of our office was intentionally planned to make patients feel comfortable and relaxed during their care.
Our goal is to provide the best in oral and facial surgery, which includes dental implants, tooth extractions and bone grafts—all the way up to doing full-mouth reconstructions. While many people come to us for help with their teeth, we also provide cosmetic surgery and other procedures to improve general appearance.
The practice owner and lead surgeon, Dr. Virginia Lee, has extensive experience and training in all aspects of oral surgery. In addition to expert skill which has made her a sought-after clinician, Dr. Lee is well known for her compassionate and gentle chair-side manner. Instead of an oral surgeon’s stereotypically harsh and forceful treatment, Dr. Lee’s highly personalized care makes patients instantly comfortable.
Anxiety is Understandable, But Not Necessary
Many people are anxious when they contemplate oral or dental surgery. They have undoubtedly heard horror stories of surgeries or extractions that were painful or failed to heal properly. What many people don’t realize is that when a surgeon is well trained, post-surgical pain can be minimal or non-existent. Some of our patients tell us they were surprised when they got home and did not need pain medication or only needed something mild for a day or two. That is the result of expert surgical treatment. Proper, quick, problem-free healing is one of the results of a masterful touch during dental care or facial surgery.
Going through surgery can be stressful. Every one of our staff members is trained to support you during this time and ease your mind. The more confident and comfortable you are, the easier it will be. Your body will be in the best shape to fight infection and heal quickly as your stress will be lower. Therefore, our role is to help provide a trouble-free overall experience—one that facilitates healing fast and get back to your life.
When you are at your healthiest, you can also be at your happiest. It is our honor to help you achieve your goals in this area.
