An Oral Surgery Practice with an Exceptional Staff and Advanced Technology
At our oral surgery practice in the Santa Fe, NM, area, we make your health and aesthetic needs our top priorities. Dr. Sean M. Healy and Dr. Diego Hurtado are highly trained oral surgeons who use advanced technology. We also have a team of experienced implant coordinators. These staff members will act as patient liaisons, helping you every step of the way. Additionally, with various types of sedation and computer-guided implant surgery, we can ensure efficient care that involves minimal discomfort and recovery time.
We know that oral surgery can be a major decision, and we want to make the process as easy as possible.
Our Surgeons Combine Experience with Compassionate Service
To qualify as an oral surgeon, Dr. Healy and Dr. Hurtado underwent four to six additional years of training beyond the requirement for a general dentist. During this time, they focused exclusively on surgery and general sedation. This education included training in the latest techniques and innovations in the field. With this impressive background, we can ensure outstanding treatment results with a negligible risk of adverse side effects.
Our Patient Liaisons
At our practice, we strive to provide completely personalized care. We know that oral surgery can be a major decision, and we want to make the process as easy as possible. For this reason, we have two implant coordinators on staff, who will serve as your personal liaison throughout your treatment. Your liaison will manage scheduling and treatment planning. She can also explain our financing options and help you find a solution that fits your budget. You will have your liaison’s email address, so she will be readily available to answer any questions that you may have.
Both of our implant coordinators have 10 or more years of experience with implants and oral surgery. Your liaison will be able to walk you through every aspect of the implant process, telling you exactly what to expect and alleviating any concerns you might have.
Cutting-edge Technology for More Precise Treatment
Our advanced technology enables Dr. Healy and Dr. Hurtado to perform faster, more accurate treatments with less discomfort. For example, we use CT scans, cone beam scans, and Panorex x-rays to produce extraordinarily sharp images of your jaw. With these pictures, our surgeons can diagnose dental problems and look for signs of bone recession. Then they can create a completely personalized treatment plan.
Our X-Guide™ by X-Nav is one of the hallmarks of our practice. In fact, we are one of the few offices in the state to use this type of technology. X-Guide™ offers live navigation throughout your implant surgery. With 360-degree views of your jaw, the system will provide our surgeons with turn-by-turn guidance for greater accuracy and precision.
Innovative Techniques for Reduced Recovery Time
One of our primary goals is to provide completely stress-free dental care. We offer a full range of sedation options, including nitrous oxide, oral sedation, and intravenous (IV) sedation. All three methods are highly effective and we will help you choose the type of sedation that is most appropriate for you. If you opt for deep IV sedation, you will be safely monitored for the duration of your treatment, thanks to Dr. Healy’s and Dr. Hurtado's advanced training in general anesthesia.
To further ensure your comfort and safety, our surgeons can perform several advanced surgical techniques. For example, during wisdom tooth extraction, we will use a platelet-rich fibrin membrane to accelerate the healing process. In other cases, you may benefit from same-day dental implants, All-on-4® implants, or related treatments.
