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 Nelson L

Very impressed with the equipment which is state of the art. And Dr Serlo is also an artist. He was able to extract a tooth and place the implant same day.

Patient Review By Mike C

I am having a great experience with a dental implant. It was not a procedure I was looking forward to. But, Dr Ruvo and staff have been very professional and caring. They have made the process as easy as I can imagine. Hoping the implant result in 4 months is great.

Patient Review By Daniela E

Thank you Dr. Serlo and staff members of the OMSA Chapel Hill office! You all are amazing! Thanks for answering all of my questions and for putting me at ease about having oral surgery. Everything before and during the extraction procedure went very smoothly and I did not have any pain or complications after the surgery. I will highly recommend Dr. Adam Serlo and the staff of OMSA Chapel Hill! My experience was the best it could have been!

Patient Review By John A

Today at the office I had interactions with several staff. All were great with me. Jamie assisted last week and again set me up today. Helps make me feel comfortable. Sarah at the front desk went out of her way to track down answers to my billing questions as did Teresa. Megan made checking out and scheduling easy. Hats off to the larger team!

Patient Review By Jodi S

My son required a very significant jaw surgery that we had been awaiting for 3 years (until he grew to a certain point). We interviewed 3 surgeons and chose Dr. Ruvo. From start to finish (yesterday) of this 2 year journey Dr. Ruvo was patient, skilled, precise, informative, prompt and honest. The transformation has been incredible. The surgery could not have gone smoother, the recovery was easier than predicted and we are 100% pleased with the results. The staff and nurses have all been wonderful. I highly recommend Dr. Ruvo, Dr. Vanderea (who assisted during the 5 hour surgery) and this practice for any of your oral or maxillofacial surgery needs. High quality care.

Patient Review By Claire M

Over the years four members of my family (ranging from 8 years to adult) have been under the care of Dr. Serlo for wisdom teeth and stubborn baby tooth extractions. He is knowledgeable, honest, friendly, efficient, and does reliably expert work. He has earned our trust and gratitude, and I have recommended him to family and friends numerous times.

Patient Review By Emma T

Nobody likes getting their wisdom teeth out, but Dr. Serlo and his staff made it easy. He was very thorough in obtaining a medical history. His surgical technique allowed me to heal quickly. I felt cared for by his staff from the start to the completion of the surgery. No matter where I wind up living in life, I will likely come back to Dr. Serlo for any surgical care. They treat you like family.
