Dental Implants

Implants don’t decay and are five times stronger than natural teeth. Our doctors have placed more than 7,000 dental implants.

Wisdom Teeth

Wisdom tooth removal helps preserve a straight smile, protect against disease, and prevent discomfort as patients get older.


Our doctors have removed thousands of teeth and make the procedure as comfortable and anxiety-free as possible.


Our team is qualified to provide intravenous (IV) sedation, when needed, to make your surgical experience relaxing and pleasant.

The Dental Implant Journey

Bill was apprehensive about getting a dental implant. Would it hurt? What is involved? Would he really be able to chew again when the process was complete? Watch our video and see Bill’s firsthand account of having his broken tooth extracted, a dental implant inserted and a crown added to restore his natural smile and function.

What Patients Are Saying

Exceptional staff who truly care. Dr. Patty, Dr. Lybrand and their entire staff go above and beyond to make their patients feel at ease. I have had multiple procedures performed by these doctors and am so pleased with my outcome.

Never met such sweet and wonderful people, they made me feel at ease before having my tooth pulled and an implant put in. I was a little nervous but when Dr. Patty came in he has the most calming voice and a great personality that made me relax and he was done,it went very good, glad Monroe has a great surgeon.

Peggy F.Recommended

Dr Patty and his staff are absolutely wonderful. He has the best most relaxed demeanor plus he is incredibly great at what he does. You never feel rushed nor do you feel you are a bother. His staff are all patient, kind and courteous. I traveled from Matthews to Monroe just to have my surgery done there.
