At SoCal Oral Maxillofacial Surgery, we believe in treating people, not cases. Whether a young child or busy retiree, we make it our priority to get to know you, your concerns and oral health goals so we can provide cutting-edge treatment to improve your health, function and appearance. Our experienced oral surgeon, Dr. Craig Thiede is on the forefront of technology and minimally invasive techniques to improve the success of procedures and create a positive patient experience. Our goal is to make every patient feel comfortable, so no matter the fear level, we try to make difficult situations easier by working together and providing solutions to ease anxiety. Dr. Thiede is certified to administer IV sedation, and we also offer other options depending on your procedure and unique case. Whether you need complex orthognathic surgery, expert dental implant placement or wisdom teeth removed, our oral surgeon and team are proud to provide trustworthy, experienced care for your whole family.
Dr. Thiede has over 20 years of experience as an oral and maxillofacial surgeon. His attention to our patients is one that recognizes their unique needs, anxieties, and helps to find the best solutions for their individual situations. Each year he completes more than 50 hours of continued training in specialty areas such as dental implants, cleft lip and palate repair, oral cancer treatment, orthognathic (jaw) surgery, and wisdom teeth extractions. He is also on staff at several area hospitals, including St. Joseph’s Hospital, Children’s Hospital of Orange County and St. Jude Medical Center.
While most of our patients know Dr. Thiede because they’ve seen him for wisdom tooth surgery, he’s also an expert when it comes to jaw treatments, TMJ therapy, and complex implant procedures. Dr. Thiede incorporates some of the most advanced technology in medical and oral health care to provide efficient and minimally-invasive services. For example, our conebeam (CT) machine allows him to digitally plan out procedures like implant placement before the date of the surgery. This promises more precise placement and an improved implant success rate.
