When most Ellwood City residents hear the name North Pittsburgh Oral Surgery Associates, they probably assume they’d have to travel at least 30 minutes for a procedure – well, that’s certainly not the case.
In fact, they wouldn’t even need to leave the 16117 area. North Pittsburgh Oral Surgery opened its Ellwood City office back on June 18, 2011, but many people are still unaware of such a close location.
North Pittsburgh Oral Surgery is located at the same address of the orthodontist Dr. David Spokane, 259 Country Club Drive in Ellwood City, just down the road from Riverside High School.
Why the name ‘North Pittsburgh’ Oral Surgery? Some 50 years ago, the business opened just north of Pittsburgh in the North Hills. Then, they began to expand, opening an office in Cranberry, New Castle, and now Ellwood City.
When the associates at North Pittsburgh Oral Surgery learned that there was no oral surgery location in the Ellwood City area, they knew opening an office in the area would be beneficial to all. They were finding out that many of their patients in Cranberry lived in Ellwood City.
North Pittsburgh Oral Surgery is a full scope practice of Oral and maxillofacial Surgery, and their main procedures include wisdom teeth removal and dental implants.
Doctors R. Kent Galey, Gary S. Kreps, and Wayne D. Roccia serve the North Hills, Cranberry, and New Castle offices, respectively. New to the practice and working at the Ellwood City office is Dr. George S. Tunder, a Pittsburgh native.
Dr. Tunder comes to North Pittsburgh Oral Surgery from his recently held position as Chief, Oral, and Maxillofacial Surgeon at the Bardsdale AFB in Louisiana. He is a diplomat of the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial surgery and a fellow of the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery.
So that people become more aware of the Ellwood City office, North Pittsburgh Oral Surgery will be offering free dental implant exams and x-rays at the Ellwood City location during the entire month of March.
