Oral Surgery Specialists

There is no doubt about the power of an enchanting smile and there is no better substitute for replacing missing teeth than with dental implants! It is, therefore, no surprise that Dr. Cliff Walzer, Dr. Neil Sullivan, and Dr. Borek Hlousek have focused their practice on creating beautiful smiles and restoring healthy function to the teeth and jaws. By embracing the team approach to patient care, the doctors combine their diagnostic and surgical skills with the talents of restorative dentists to provide the optimum care that patients deserve. Of all the procedures they perform, the doctors have taken a special interest in the replacement of teeth with dental implants. With recent technological advances, Drs. Walzer, Sullivan and Hlousek obtain three-dimensional images of a patient’s jaw structure and virtually plan the positioning of dental implants on computers.

Dr. Richard Aufderheide, DMD, MSD

“The goal and policy is to treat our patients as we would treat our families,” asserts Dr. Richard Aufderheide, D.M.D. His Annapolis practice offers high-quality, friendly service in a gentle, caring atmosphere. “Being of service to our patients,” he explains, “is the definition of our purpose and the mission of our practice.” He makes sure the patient is given all treatment options, realistic treatment expectations, and costs. “This way,” he says, “the patient can make the best informed decision on what is right for them.” He believes that successful implant and periodontal therapy is dependent upon a team approach between the patient, the restorative dentist, and the periodontist, and thus maintains open communication between all members of the team in order to ensure individualized personal attention for each and every patient.
