Dr.  Hammond & his family

While extensively trained and skilled in oral implant surgery, orthognathic surgery and reconstruction of traumatic facial injuries, Dr. Hammond has a special interest and affinity for Facial Cosmetic Surgery. This affinity translates into a unique, artistic talent for sculpting both soft and hard tissues of the face, thereby providing a natural, fresh and youthful look. This can be accomplished using both surgical and non-surgical options. He is passionate about all aspects of cosmetic facial surgery and loves going to work and making people look and feel better.

Dr. Hammond has significant experience with laser resurfacing of the skin. He has been trained and has performed resurfacing procedures with both CO2 and Erbium lasers. Dr. Hammond has performed hundreds of laser resurfacing procedures alone and in conjunction with face lifts, eyebrow lifts, as well as eyelid procedures. The resurfacing procedures in turn make the patient’s skin look and feel more youthful and beautiful.

Dr.  Hammond & Patient

These non-surgical treatments to enhance and beautify the face, along with the surgical options, are always available to our patients.

Dr. Hammond is also very passionate about oral implant reconstruction. Within his Surgery Center there is a state of the art CT scanner, called the iCAT. This CT scanner allows Dr. Hammond to perform guided dental implant surgery. This will often allow Dr. Hammond to place implants as well as the restoration in the same day (“Teeth in a Day”). In addition to this, Dr. Hammond has been well trained and performs zygomatic implants. If you have ever been told that you are not an implant candidate because you have no bone, Dr. Hammond is the surgeon for you. Zygomatic implants can change your life!
