An Experienced and Caring Oral Surgeon

three happy womenSometimes the only way to restore the health and beauty of your smile is with oral surgery. Certain oral health complications, like extensive tooth decay or impacted wisdom teeth, require the expertise of an oral surgeon. If you are suffering with oral health problems and need an oral surgeon in the Tampa area, Dr. Grellner can perform an array of procedures to meet your needs. With more than 30 years of practice, he and his friendly staff have the experience to make your oral surgery optimally comfortable and convenient. Contact us today to learn more.

What Sets Us Apart?

Dr Grellner’s own uncomfortable experience - as a 19 year old college student needing to have a painful impacted wisdom tooth removed under local anesthesia - resulted in a career-long interest both in improving the entire wisdom tooth experience as well as providing safe, effective and comfortable IV general anesthesia.

  • Our Caring Approach Sets Us Apart
    Dr. Grellner and his staff spend a great deal of one-on-one time with patients, and thoroughly explain procedures to you in person. They believe that every patient should understand each stage of their surgery so they can feel relaxed and prepared for their big day. Patient education is very important to us. We also strive to create a warm and family-like atmosphere. Our tranquil office environment has bay windows overlooking a wildlife preserve, so you may feel more like you are at a relaxation destination than a medical facility. As a small but advanced oral surgery practice, you can relax knowing that your health is in caring and highly experienced hands.

  • Our Exclusive QuickRecover IV Anesthesia

    Dr Grellner’s work over the past decade to improve upon an IV general anesthesia technique most commonly administered by licensed oral & maxillofacial surgeons, resulted in significant changes and comfort.  

    His exclusive QuickRecover IV Anesthesia lives up to its name by reducing your post-anesthesia recovery to as little as 10-20 minutes, and virtually eliminates prolonged uncomfortable dizziness and nausea.  It also introduces dosing that can be individually customized and adjusted to meet your changing needs throughout the procedure.

  • A Better Wisdom Teeth Experience

    Dr. Grellner’s desire to improve upon his own uncomfortable experience also resulted in changes to the entire wisdom tooth experience he offers today.

    While a far better anesthetic experience helps on the day of surgery, what about before and after? Little did he realize how the TIMING of the removal of the wisdom teeth has everything to do with whether you will experience discomfort BEFORE they are removed as well as the length and severity of the discomfort present AFTER the surgery.

  • Implant Placement With the Accuracy of Specialized Digital Technology

    Now available - Our New Cerec/Galileos 3D Digital Technology for placing dental implants with much greater accuracy and safety than ever before.

    No longer do we need to worry about where the implant will be going when we can align it 3-dimensionally on a CT-scan of your jaw along with digital images of your teeth and gums beforehand!  From this we can mill a surgical guide that will reproduce the angle and depth that the implant was placed virtually on your CT x-ray.

    Not only will your implant will be placed more quickly, comfortably, precisely and confidently, but your dentist will get an implant placed where he planned for it to be.

Restoring Your Health with Advanced Care

Ignored dental health issues can quickly escalate into more serious problems. What begins as simple build-up can become an infection with serious tooth decay if a patient is not regularly undergoing dental exams. If you have oral health complications that cannot be treated by your dentist, you may be referred to an oral surgeon for treatment. Oral surgery is often the last option when other treatments have failed. Surgery for jaw defects, impacted wisdom teeth, and tooth extraction are some of the services that oral surgeons provide. These procedures require a great deal of precision and skill that can only be gained through specialized training. 

Dr. Grellner has the education and experience that serious oral health complications require. He is board certified in oral and maxillofacial surgery, as well as well as by the National Board of Dental Anesthesiology. He has also been honored as a Courtesy Clinical Assistant Professor of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at the University of Florida College of Dentistry. For nearly three decades, he has been serving the community with his knowledge, skill, and easy chairside demeanor, earning him the great patient compliment that oral surgery "was a breeze."

For patient convenience, we accept all major credit cards, as well as CareCredit®. Some of the services we provide include:

My experience at the office was great. Initially I was nervous because 4 wisdoms had to be extracted.

I want to thank Dr. Grellner and his staff for the quality and professionalism of their work.
