Annapolis Oral Surgery, Pa

  Before opening a private oral surgery practice, Doctor Gene Kohler traveled the world as a U.S. Navy officer, fought in Vietnam, helped evacuate Cambodia and Saigon after the war, and skippered a PT boat with the elite Naval Special Warfare Grpup One. After Dental School at the University of Pittsburgh from 1978 to 1982, he practiced general dentistry in the Navy for 10 years. He recalls helping people from all walks of life, sometimes in remote locations untouched by tourists. During community action missions, he and his team educated local doctors about instrument sterilization and performed dentistry on children in a Thailand jungle. During Desert Shield/Desert Storm, he found himself serving with the Marine Corps version of a MASH unit, performing triage, anesthesia and trauma procedures on wounded U.S. and Allied soldiers fighting up the Kuwaiti coast. It was here, in the desert dust and heat, that he decided to specialize in surgery. “Frankly, it was exciting. The satisfaction of helping to save lives on both sides convinced me that my training and skills were best suited for a surgical specialty.”
