Business Spotlight: Oral Surgery Associates


Is it time to talk about wisdom tooth removal?

Wisdom teeth usually come in between ages of 17 and 25, a time of life that has been called the “Age of Wisdom.” When a tooth doesn’t fully grow in, it’s “impacted” and unable to break through the gum because there isn’t enough room. 90% of people have at least one impacted wisdom tooth.

The doctors at Oral Surgery Associates are specialists in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. They are trained in the latest techniques in surgery and anesthesia in order to provide a safe and comfortable experience for the removal of wisdom teeth. During these procedures, in addition to their constant attention, they utilize a Registered Nurse to provide an extra layer of safety and protection.

Dr. Dorsett and Dr. Orr are both veterans of the United States Army and each have over 20 years of surgical experience. They are certified by the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, American Dental Society of Anesthesiology and the National Dental Board of Anesthesiology.

Oral Surgery Associates accept all major insurance and are providers for Medicaid. They are open for patient care Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. You can call any time between 7:30 a.m. and 6 p.m. They are even available to accept your phone calls during lunchtime and have a 24/7 afterhours call line. They are conveniently located at 910 Goodyear Avenue, directly across the street from Gadsden Regional Medical Center.

When your dental needs require a specialist, whether it is for wisdom teeth, dental implants or any surgical procedure, call someone who is experienced, dedicated to your safety and here when you need them. Give Oral Surgery Associates a call at 256-492-6363 or visit their website at
