Dr. Oakley's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Oakley "Dr. Richard Oakley is a native of Kansas. He received his undergraduate degree in Psychology from the University of Oklahoma in 1984. He then attended the University of Oklahoma College of Dentistry where he served as President of his class and received the distinction of Outstanding Senior Student in Oral Surgery. He received his dental degree in 1989. Dr. Oakley entered his Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery residency at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center in Oklahoma City following his graduation from dental school and completed his surgical training in 1993. He moved to Kansas City immediately after completing his residency and joined the oral and maxillofacial surgery practice started by Dr. TJ Nidiffer. Dr. Oakley is Board Certified by the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons. He is a member of the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, the American College of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, the American Dental Association, the Kansas Dental Association and the American Dental Society of Anesthesiologists. He currently is on the medical staff at Shawnee Mission Medical Center where he has chaired various medical staff committees. He also has staff appointments at Overland Park Regional Medical Center (for facial trauma) and at Saint Luke's South Hospital in Overland Park. Dr. Oakley is the director of the Great Plains Study Club (now in its 20th year), the exclusive local Kansas City chapter of the Seattle Study Club. The Seattle Study Club stresses interdisciplinary dentistry (multiple dental specialists working with the patient's general dentist to obtain the best outcome for the patient) and obtaining absolute excellence in the doctor's professional practice. A dentist in the Seattle Study Club emphasizes the importance of providing the very best, most comprehensive treatment available. As director of the Great Plains Study Club, Dr. Oakley instructs some of Kansas City's finest dentists on oral implants. Dr. Oakley has a special interest in the area of dental implants, bone grafting techniques to augment the jaws to better accept dental implants, orthognathic surgery (reconstruction of the facial skeleton) and reconstruction of traumatic facial injuries. He is married and has one daughter and one son. Dr. Oakley enjoys road cycling, hiking in the mountains, snow skiing and music."

Dr. Oakley put in an implant for a front tooth that fell out. He did a great job. He explained everything really well and works really quickly before I had time to get scared. I would definitely go back to him again. He even called me that evening to see how I was feeling..

Dr. Oakley and his staff are very friendly and make you feel real comfortable. Dr. Oakley did the surgery on my mouth to remove an implant. I don't know what else he will have to do yet, but he will be the one to do whatever it takes. I think he is a very good surgeon.
