Board-certified Dr. Gary J. Wayne specializes in face, jaw and mouth surgery. A 30-year solo practitioner with a compassionate and gentle approach, Dr. Wayne offers the full scope of oral and maxillofacial surgery, including dental extractions, oral pathology, single and multiple dental implant surgeries, and grafting procedures for bone and gums. His practice has an emphasis on wisdom tooth removal and dental implant surgeries. 

“I do everything I can do to make the dental experience as easy and comfortable as I can for patients, both surgically and post-operatively. I offer IV sedation for all of my patients. I make it a point to sedate teenage and young adult patients for wisdom tooth extractions to avoid subjecting them to inhumane treatment that could possibly have long-term negative effects on their lives, emotionally and physically. This also applies to young children who need my care. When applicable, I avoid narcotic prescriptions for pain control. We can use non-opioid pain medications, as well as time-released injectable pain medication,“ Wayne explains. 

“I have been providing dental implants since 1990, utilizing conservative procedures that save people from having multiple surgeries as well as a lengthy recovery. More complex cases, like revision surgeries, bone grafting and zygoma implants, are sometimes indicated, and are all within the scope of my practice.” 

Summarizing his aesthetic model, Wayne says, “People are supposed to look natural, and I follow the surgical principle which states that ‘Form always follows function.’ If you put people back to the way nature had originally intended, it will always look right.”
