Welcome to Our Practice
Dental surgeons serve Merrillville and Valparaiso, IN and beyond
You probably have a trusted family dentist for cleanings, checkups, and routine dental procedures . . . and that is terrific. Oral and maxillofacial surgery, though, is a very specialized area combining the disciplines of dentistry, medicine, and general surgery. The surgeons at Stevenson, Fairchild & Surber OMS have advanced training in this area, and more than 70 years of combined experience. Patients in Chicagoland and across Porter, Lake, and LaPorte counties take advantage of our two convenient locations – Valparaiso and Merrillville, IN – for top quality treatment.
Much more than implants
Today, dental implants play a critical role in replacement of natural teeth, and they are big part of what we do at Stevenson, Fairchild & Surber OMS. However, our range of services extends far beyond implant planning and surgical placement.
You can also turn to our surgical team for:
- Bone grafting
- Implant-retained dentures using BioHorizons’ TeethXpress system
- Wisdom tooth surgery
- Dental extractions
- Corrective jaw surgery
- Oral pathology and complex reconstructive surgery
- Comprehensive facial trauma
- Temporomandibular joint evaluation and surgery
We work closely with your dentist and other healthcare providers for integrated care that returns superior results.
