Dr. Tyson Teeples has always been fascinated with the biological sciences and he excelled in his high school anatomy and physiology class. It wasn't until college, however, after reading an article about cleft lip and palate surgery that Dr. Teeples looked seriously into dentistry and medicine as a career. This article—and his wife's encouragement—spurred Dr. Teeples to observe a family friend at a local dental office. With this experience, Dr. Teeples knew that dental school was the obvious next step. While studying for a dental board exam, Dr. Teeples was thumbing through an oral surgery textbook and was fascinated at the before and after pictures of facial trauma injuries. He felt something deep down and knew then that he would pursue a career in oral and maxillofacial surgery. From that point, he never looked back. Observing and participating in facial trauma surgery and Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital, corrective jaw surgery at Massachusetts General Hospital, and cleft lip and palate surgery and Children's Hospital Boston, Dr. Teeples developed a clear vision of what his career would hold. Rubbing shoulders with world-renowned surgeons and world-class physicians influenced Dr. Teeples deeply. The pathway to becoming a full-scope oral and maxillofacial surgeon has instilled within Dr. Teeples a love of people and a passion for seeing and caring for patients of all ages. Dr. Teeples truly enjoys his job. "I didn't just want to do the surgery; I wanted to be a surgeon. It's what I am, not what I do. It's the patient connection that makes the difference."

My husband has always had a fear of going to the dentist. Major procedures are particularly difficult. He had a tooth extracted with Dr. Teeples and with the nitrous oxide and the doctor's calm and reassuring manner my husband had no problems with the experience. I'm sure the implant process will go smoothly as well.
It is our pleasure to make your experience as pleasant as possible. We are thankful that you took time out of your day to let others know about your positive experience coming to our practice. We appreciate it more than you know.

i was sent to Dr. Teeples from my primary care dentist for a tooth extraction. He was very kind and understanding to my situation and answered all my questions I had written down to ask him. They got me in the day after the consult for the extraction and it went very well, no problems and I've been pain-free. I see him again for a post op visit and will write down any more questions I have.

My son had his wisdom teeth removed by Dr. Teeples and his experience was amazing. The procedure only took about 30 minutes and he has healed up very nice and quick. The office staff is extremely easy to work with, we had to change our appointment three different times due to weather and school conflicts that came up, and they we're always very willing to work with us. I would happily refer anyone looking to have work done to CBOMS.
We are glad we were able to fit you into the schedule. We do our very best to accommodate patients' needs. Thank you for sharing your positive experience and leaving us a review.

They staff was very friendly with helping set up appointments and Dr. Teeples did an awesome job taking my wisdom teeth out with no anxiety on my end. The nurses were wonderful in helping keep me informed with every step of the procedure as well. All around great experience, this coming from someone who usually does not like the dentist.
Dr. Teeples was great with my son, he was nervous about having to get oral surgery and he made him feel very comfortable about the process. Everyone was really friendly!
