Dental Implants in Chapel Hill, Durham & Sanford NC

Dental Implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. With dental implants, the person who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat virtually anything, knowing that replacement teeth appear natural and that facial contours will be preserved. Dental Implants also help preserve facial structure, preventing bone deterioration that occurs when teeth are missing. Patients with dental implants can smile with confidence.


The Importance of Board Certification

We are one of the only practices in the area in which all doctors are board certified. Board certification is important when choosing an oral surgeon because it signifies that your doctor has passed a rigorous exam and application process by the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery (ABOMS), demonstrating achievement of thorough training, qualifications and experience. Not every oral surgeon is board certified, but when you visit OMSA, you can rest assured knowing that ours are.

Patient Review By Sandi B

I was quite anxious about having my autistic son's wisdom teeth removed. But Dr. Serlo and the entire staff put myself and my son at ease. I'm so glad we didn't put it off. Everything was smooth from the consultation, through the procedure and the follow-up appointment. My son was never in any pain. I highly recommend Dr. Serlo and OMSA!

Patient Review By Chris B

Dr. Ruvo is amazing. I felt comfortable from start to finish. I didn't even feel the iv go in, three sentences later, done! No after pain, whatsoever, and he even called to check on me that evening! Best dental experience I have had to date. You have to be referred here, and I cant speak for the other doctors, im sure all of them are great, but my Dr. was amazing!

Patient Review By Katherine B

Dr. Serlo and his staff made me feel completely comfortable and confident about my procedure. Dr. Serlo recognized my anxiety and took the time explain everything about the process of my procedure and post-op care. I really can't say enough good things about my experience with OMSA, their friendly staff, and Dr. Serlo.

Patient Review By William F

Let’s be honest: Most people don’t really want to have to see an oral surgeon. It really helps that Dr. Ruvo and his team are very professional, but are also extremely warm and friendly, which puts you at ease. Dr. Ruvo takes the time to explain what’s involved in your procedure, and exactly what to expect during your recovery. You’re also taught everything you need to do to have the best outcome. I would recommend Dr. Ruvo and his team to anyone!

Patient Review By Emilie K

I had a complicated case and at every turn I was so impressed with Dr. Serlo and his team. They did an amazing job taking care of me. They explained everything to me (no surprises) and they did an incredible job during both procedures. They are a great team and I am so thankful for their expertise.

Patient Review By Donna K

I wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Serlo and Team at OMSA to anyone that is in need of dental surgery. Multiple locations offer access that is convenient from home or work in the Triangle. Office is well prepared for COVID prevention and I feel very safe in the reception and treatment areas. Staff are well practiced with masks; didn't have any trouble hearing or understanding.

Patient Review By Katherine W

Dr. Serlo and his team were exemplary. The level of care, attention, responsiveness and thorough explanations of each step of every procedure allowed me to feel comfortable and informed. Dr. Serlo and his team were invested in my care and health, and I'll be forever grateful for that care easing this challenging process. I would whole-heartedly recommend him, his team and his office for extractions, bone and tissue grafts and implants.

This is the second time I have had work done by doctor Serlo, and my daughter has had work done by doctor Ruvo twice. There aren't enough nice things I could say. Excellent all around. The staff is terrific. Makes getting a tooth pulled almost a pleasure:)
