Meet Dr. Sean Healy
A graduate of Texas A&M University and Baylor College of Dentistry, Dr. Healy served in the Navy for several years before completing his education in oral and maxillofacial surgery at the University of Texas.

Trust Your Care to an Experienced Oral Surgeon
Oral surgery can have important long-term consequences for your health, dental function, and appearance. Therefore, it is important to choose an experienced practitioner for your care. Even if you are going to receive dental implants, a surgeon has more training and clinical expertise than general dentists. As oral surgeons, Dr. Healy and Dr. Hurdado have four to six extra years of education focusing on advanced surgical techniques. Because of this in-depth knowledge, there is a minimized chance that you will need revision surgeries in the future.
In addition to pursuing advanced training, Dr. Healy and Dr. Hurtado have chosen a highly qualified office team. Our staff includes two implant coordinators, who will serve you as your personal care liaison. She will help coordinate your entire procedure, including scheduling and finances. You will also have her email address, so you can easily reach your liaison with any questions and concerns.
Dental Implant Coordinators
As part of our implant dentistry services, each patient works with an experienced implant coordinator. Acting as liaisons, these staff members are available to help you through every step of the treatment process and to answer your questions. This way, patients can be sure that the staff member they are speaking to knows their case personally and can provide relevant, tailored care.
Dr. Healy and Dr. Hurtado perform a number of advanced treatments. Dental implants are a major focus of our practice, and we offer several types of dental implants. These options include traditional and same-day implants, as well as the All-on-4® method. After your implants are in place, our surgeons and/or implant coordinators will collaborate with your dentist to ensure that your restoration is comfortable and looks completely realistic.

State-of-the-art Technology to Improve Your Care
Our surgeons perform all oral surgery treatments using advanced tools and methodology. With this innovative care, we can minimize discomfort, shorten your treatment time, and speed your recovery. Before recommending any treatment, we will take CT scans, Panorex x-rays, and/or cone beam scans. These sharp images will help us make accurate diagnoses and recommend appropriate, individually tailored procedures.
We are particularly proud of our X-Guide™ machine by X-Nav, one of the few in the state. This 3-D imaging system will provide a 360-degree view of your jaw. It will also guide our surgeons through every step of your implant surgery. With this advanced technology, we can place your implants with the highest degree of precision possible.
