About East Brainerd Oral Surgery
Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons, Bill Childress, DDS, MD, Karl Meyer, DDS, MD, and Ricky Johnson, DDS, MD, practice a full scope of oral and maxillofacial surgery with expertise ranging from dental implants and bone grafting procedures to single or full-mouth extractions. We can also diagnose and treat facial pain, facial injuries, and perform corrective jaw surgery.
East Brainerd Oral Surgery‘s (in Chattanooga) team is trained in assisting with I.V. Sedation and I.V. General Anesthesia within our 7,200 square foot state of the art office setting. We are members of the American Academy of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons (AAOMS), Tennessee Society of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons (TSOMS), American Dental Association (ADA), Tennessee Dental Association (TDA), and Chattanooga Area Dental Society (CADS).
One of our most common procedures is dental implant surgery. Our oral surgeons in Chattanooga provide dental implants that allow patients to chew normally – and wear a million-dollar smile. Because dental implants protect jaw structure and restore confidence, we recommend this oral surgery procedure for anyone who has lost a tooth. Even multiple lost teeth can be restored by our oral surgeons using dental implants. Our central location gives patients from all over the region access to life-changing dental implant surgery. We’re within an easy drive of Calhoun, Dalton, Ringgold, Fort Oglethorpe, and many other cities in North Georgia – though most of our oral surgery patients come from Chattanooga, Cleveland, Ooltewah, and Hixson, TN.
All our surgeries are furnished with state of the art equipment and maintained at the highest standards.
With over 60 years of dental practice and experience with implants, we are experts in all facets of dentistry.
Our Happy Clients
“I had my wisdom teeth out at East Brainerd Oral Surgery. Great experience! The staff really cares and made me feel completely at ease. I would definitely recommend!!”
“Dr. Meyer and Staff, I want to thank you for taking great care of me throughout my visit and procedure. I felt as if I were the only patient in the office – you were all so attentive. I had experienced the attention you give when you took care of my father-in-law, J.J. That’s why it was and is so easy to refer family, friends and Dr. P’s patients to your office. Thank you again and blessings to each and every one of you!”
“I freely confess that I’m a dental coward, so when I found myself needing a tooth removed and a bone-graft for an implant, I was not a happy girl! I’m so glad that I found EBOS. Dr. Meyer was wonderful and every single person there went out of their way to make me feel comfortable and confident. My surgery was a breeze and my recovery has been perfectly uneventful. It’s so totally out of character for me that I actually look forward to my visits there! Honestly, I don’t know why anyone would go anywhere other than to Dr. Meyer and Dr. Childress. They and their amazing staff have my very highest recommendation.”
“Dr. Childress did an amazing job extracting my wisdom teeth today! 8 hours later…and I’m doing great! What a friendly staff & a great environment!”
