Our Philosophy

To build a house, you need carpenters, electricians, and plumbers.  Why can’t one person handle all of these tasks? The answer is that no one person can be exceptional at everything.  Coastal Oral Surgery is not a “one-stop shop.” Dr. Capes has pioneered a new concept called Teeth4Life that benefits you, the patient.  

The Teeth4Life concept has four components:


1. Dr.  Capes, the uniquely qualified physician and oral and maxillofacial surgeon at Coastal Oral Surgery.  He places the dental implants, which are artificial tooth roots that support your new teeth.

2. A restorative dentist.  Dr. Capes works with many exceptional restorative dentists.  These dentists are experts who know exactly how to complete the restorative phase of dental implants. In fact, before you the office, Dr. Capes has already communicated with your dentist.


3. A specialized dental laboratory.  Just as all dentists are not the same, there is a vast difference in quality among dental laboratories.  Dr. Capes insists on working with the best dental laboratories that produce outstanding results.


4. You, the patient.  As the patient, you are at the center of the Teeth4Life concept.  You will be asked to do your part to maintain your dental implants so you can enjoy them for decades and even a lifetime.
