About Me

"As an oral and maxillofacial surgeon it is rewarding to build the foundation on which the general dentist can restore the patient to normal form and function; then completing the process with facial esthetic procedures."

Dr Ward was our initial contact for a root canal but we decided with him that there was a good probability that it would not work on my 87 year old mom He was very knowledgeable and kind and we both really appreciated his kind manner I was not in the room for the extraction but my mom said everything was good with Dr LaSpisa I would definitely recommend this Dental Associates to others Also all the staff were kind and answered all our questions. Thank you all!!
