Dr. Teeples' bio

This content was provided by Dr. Teeples "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...more

Very fast, thorough, and accurate wisdom tooth extraction. I had novicane and nitrous oxide, and felt confident throughout the 35 minute procedure.
