Dr. Helfst's Care Philosophy

The Mission of our practice is to create and nurture a team of the best people committed to providing exceptional Oral & Facial Surgery care in a warm and compassionate environment. Our Vision is to be the premier Oral & Facial Surgery office, through a constant pursuit of clinical excellence and be at the forefront of advances within our specialty through professional development and scientific inquiry.

Dr. Helfst says...

Dr. Helfst is uniquely qualified to treat all conditions of the face and jaws.  He is Board Certified in the placement of Dental Implants to replace missing teeth and has been doing so since 1994.  He uses the latest technology to do so.  Specifically, he uses low dose radiation reduction technology with the aid of a new Toshiba CT scanner to plan the placement of your dental implants.  These images are then downloaded into a software program and the surgery is preplanned and customized for you. This results not only in accuracy in the positioning of your dental implants, but faster surgery and ultimately longer lasting teeth. 

Dr. Helfst is also Board Certified in Anesthesia and provides this service in a spa-like setting.  His anesthesia ranges from local (novocaine), nitrous oxide (laughing gas) and anesthesia much like an outpatient procedure in which you are fully asleep and awakened in a safe, efficient manner.  Come visit a fellow member of your Stroudsburg Community since 2001 

Dr. Helfst says...

Our main area of expertise is the placement and maintenance of dental implants.  I have personally been involved in this field since 1989.  Our office has always incorporated the cutting edge technology as implants have evolved over the years.  Our long term success of our dental implants is well over the 95% range.  This is achieved through thorough planning with your general dentist and incorporating the latest technological advances such as Cat Scan guided placement of dental implants. 

My philosophy is that once you become a dental implant client of mine I will continue to follow you forever.  I see all of my implant clientele every 6 months to a year for a comprehensive exam and x-ray exam if needed, to ensure the long term success of your new teeth.

I welcome your time in completing a survey about our office.  Nothing means more to me than our clientele being completely satisfied with our care and customer service towards you and your family.  If you have any concerns, please don't hesitate to contact my office directly and speak with me personally.  I will be happy to discuss any matters that may concern you or help to improve your future visits with us.  Kindest Personal Regards,
