Dr. Ted Grellner DDS Leading an Outstanding Oral Surgery Practice

Dr. Ted Grellner is not a general dentist who performs dental surgery; he is a fully-qualified, board-certified** oral and maxillofacial surgeon.

Though he spent several years providing general dentistry while in the USAF, valuable experience which helps him to better appreciate the issues your dentist faces everyday, he wanted to take his skills in dental surgery to a much higher level.

What Sets Us Apart?

Dr Grellner’s own uncomfortable experience - as a 19 year old college student needing to have a painful impacted wisdom tooth removed under local anesthesia - resulted in a career-long interest both in improving the entire wisdom tooth experience as well as providing safe, effective and comfortable IV general anesthesia.

  • Our Caring Approach Sets Us Apart

    Dr. Grellner and his staff spend a great deal of one-on-one time with patients, and thoroughly explain procedures to you in person. They believe that every patient should understand each stage of their surgery so they can feel relaxed and prepared for their big day. Patient education is very important to us. We also strive to create a warm and family-like atmosphere. Our tranquil office environment has bay windows overlooking a wildlife preserve, so you may feel more like you are at a relaxation destination than a medical facility. As a small but advanced oral surgery practice, you can relax knowing that your health is in caring and highly experienced hands.

  • Our Exclusive QuickRecover IV Anesthesia

    Dr Grellner’s work over the past decade to improve upon an IV general anesthesia technique most commonly administered by licensed oral & maxillofacial surgeons, resulted in significant changes and comfort.

    His exclusive QuickRecover IV Anesthesia lives up to its name by reducing your post-anesthesia recovery to as little as 10-20 minutes, and virtually eliminates prolonged uncomfortable dizziness and nausea. It also introduces dosing that can be individually customized and adjusted to meet your changing needs throughout the procedure.

  • A Better Wisdom Teeth Experience

    Dr. Grellner’s desire to improve upon his own uncomfortable experience also resulted in changes to the entire wisdom tooth experience he offers today.

    While a far better anesthetic experience helps on the day of surgery, what about before and after? Little did he realize how the TIMING of the removal of the wisdom teeth has everything to do with whether you will experience discomfort BEFORE they are removed as well as the length and severity of the discomfort present AFTER the surgery.

  • Implant Placement With the Accuracy of Specialized Digital Technology

    We offer Cerec/Galileos 3D Digital Technology for placing dental implants with much greater accuracy and safety than ever before.

    We can align your implant 3-dimensionally on a CT-scan of your jaw along with digital images of your teeth and gums beforehand! From this we can mill a surgical guide that will reproduce the angle and depth that the implant was placed virtually on your CT X-ray.

    Not only will your implant be placed more quickly, comfortably, precisely and confidently, but also your dentist will get an implant placed where he planned for it to be.
