Dr. Capes, founder of Teeth4Life and Coastal Oral Surgery in St. Simons Island, has earned the distinction of being both a medical doctor and dentist. Through many years of dedicated study and advanced training, Dr. Capes is a specialist in oral and maxillofacial surgery.


Dr. Capes and the team at Coastal Oral Surgery have placed over 12,000 dental implants with a success rate of 98%. This documented success rate in his practice exceeds the national average, so you can rest assured that you are in experienced hands.



As a life long student and teacher, Dr. Capes remains on the leading edge of his profession by regularly attending educational courses and sharing knowledge with his staff about implant dentistry and the difference it can make in his patients' lives.



Teeth4Life is a revolutionary approach to providing a patient with a lifetime of confidence in the smile they have always wanted. Dr. Capes believes in using a "team" approach to provide his patients with the best care possible. The team approach has 3 corners all working for the the patient's benefit. A Dentist, a Dental Laboratory, and Dr. Capes, a licensed surgical specialist. Dr. Capes believes that his patients should always be placed within the triangle, in order to receive the most professional care possible.


So, you are missing a tooth, multiple, or possibly even all your teeth. You want to make the best decision, so you do some research about options to replace and hear an overwhelming amount of information. With media and technology, you believe this will be an easy process, I mean you’ve heard all the TV advertisements about all in one, one stop shops with immediate results. Unfortunately, the result is you being left in a fog of uncertainty!

This was my motivation behind the Teeth4Life™ concept. I keep telling myselfpeople need to know the facts and truth about the Dental Implant Process. All the information out there is only focused on the procedures and the process, NOT about the people that they are taking care of.

Dental Implant treatment was founded on a team approach process thatalways focused on the patient. Unfortunately, today the industry has tried tocreate a one size fits all model. That model is broken!
Teeth4Life™ is a patient centered philosophy in which it’s core embraces the fact that everyone is unique and deserves personalized care. I wanted to have a group of people that shared a common passion for changing peoples lives.
That is Teeth4Life™!


As you continue to read through this information please remember a teamwill be with you every step of the way. There are many different options for tooth replacement and it’s your decision what is the best route for you.
Remember, it is not about faster, teeth in a day, one size fits all, or a one stop shop, it is what is best for you and your overall dental health.

I am humbled by the trust that has been placed in me and this concept. My hope is that we can make this world a better place one person and one smile at a time.
