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."

He is a wonderful dentist who cares for his patients. He explains what he is doing and willingly answers questions. He gets along well with his staff members; they work as a team. My tooth was extracted in one piece and is healing very fast.

My wisdom teeth removal went smooth and I am healing well. So everyone did a great job. Appreciate the understanding of my choices for having one side at a time done and for the post procedure care.

My Oral Surgeon Dr. Joseph A. LaSpisa was absolutely WONDERFUL!!! His bedside manner was beyond what one would expect. Extremely friendly, extremely professional and yet extremely down to earth. I had never met him but immediately gravitated to his kindness and compassion for medical care.

He went into a lot of detail about what the surgery would look like, what happens if my roots arent where they expect them to be, etc!
