Implants, Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery
Cosmetic Procedures
From the Dentist (Sponsored)

Consistent outcomes require accurate diagnoses, assessment of medical risks and potential complications, and the formulation and execution of an individualized, principled, surgical plan. These skill sets are not learned in weekend courses or heavily marketed, certificate seminars. Complications are prevented only by understanding how and why they may occur, and that foundation is built on by repetition and broad exposure. Having practiced Implant Dentistry and Oral Surgery in Sarasota for 16 years, it is clear that not every dentist is comfortable in restoring and maintaining dental implants. And not all placers of dental implants are trained surgeons, nor do they place implants routinely. There exists a wide disparity of skills and clinical acumen; of this the patient is too often unaware. Having placed thousands of dental implants and performed thousands of bone graft procedures from extraction defects to entire jaws, the fact remains there is no substitute for training.

As a respected leader in the dental community, and a longstanding diplomate of the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and National Dental Board of Anesthesiology, Dr. Middleton has the qualifications, expertise and advanced training necessary to provide you and your loved ones with individualized dental implant and oral surgery specialty care in a comfortable and stress-free environment. Patients and our referrals gain confidence not through advertisement, but through consistent results that we stand behind. The trust of repeat patients and the referral from some of the area’s finest dentists is further endorsed by year after year nominations to America’s TopDentists - and testament to this consistent excellence.

Today’s patients present with elevated expectations garnered through online research and social media. Often, they bring with them known and unknown underlying risks as well as direct or indirect knowledge of a dental implant experience. The expertise necessary to meet the demands of today’s patients is rooted in double degrees in medicine and dentistry, followed by six years of hospital-based residency training at the nation’s largest, and one of the busiest, oral surgery training programs. Fourteen years of post-secondary education coupled with 18 years of clinical practice allows Dr. Middleton to competently assess and effectively manage the medically complicated patient as well as the increasingly common, revision of failed treatment. Formal training rotations at Texas Children’s and MD Anderson further compliment his management of the pediatric and cancer patient.

With both hospital-based operating room and out-patient surgical center anesthesia training, and over 24 years of continuing education and Advanced Cardiac Life Support certification, Dr. Middleton is recognized as a seasoned, licensed provider of safe office-based anesthesia. From light conscious, to monitored deep plane intravenous sedation and general anesthesia, your needs are met for maximum comfort, facilitating quality care and a positive experience. From the initial consultation, our office takes pride in developing a congenial rapport in a welcoming and safe environment. Interactive and comprehensive analysis of the individual’s condition using the latest in three-dimensional CT imaging, digital scanning and computer simulation software helps one visualize their condition imparting a greater understanding. This facilitates patient participation in an open discussion of the available treatment options that encompasses degree of difficulty of the planned surgery, recovery time, potential complications, reasonable expectations and alternative therapies as well as cost and an outline of the treatment sequence and overall timetable. Second opinion seekers garner an improved grasp of their condition and the various treatment options, and leave realizing not only the pros and cons of each approach, but the inherent level of our compassion and competency. The thorough review is always appreciated with many acknowledging that they were never so well informed. Transitioning from preoperative preparations through surgery and onto recovery demands attention to detail — and our consistent results speak for themselves and are validated in our online reviews and testimonials. This prompts patients to directly request our services when additional work is needed, in addition to the greatest compliment of referring their friends, families and colleagues.

To exceed your expectations is not just a mantra, but fundamental to our efforts at Middleton Oral Surgery. Upon your arrival, our qualified and compassionate team is focused on you the patient… not just your mouth or that bad tooth, but your overall degree of anxiety and overt as well as underlying concerns — inspiring calm and instilling confidence. When our services are needed, we invite you to come into Middleton Oral Surgery to learn what sets us apart.
