Oral Surgery Associates Community Outreach Programs

Committed to providing care in our offices and throughout our community

Wisdom4Wisdom Program

group of teens with thumbs upAs Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, we are the foremost experts in the field of wisdom tooth removal and office-based anesthesia administration.  Wisdom Teeth removal is the most common procedures that we perform and much of our wisdom teeth patients are teenagers through young adults.  Because we see so many teens and young adults we have developed our Wisdom4Wisdom program as a way to give back to our local students through their schools. 

In our Wisdom4Wisdom Program, Oral Surgery Associates donates wisdom-teeth removal surgery and accompanying care to local high school fundraisers to assist area schools in creating wise, healthy, and successful students.  

The Wisdom4Wisdom donation to school fundraisers includes a consultation, safe and comfortable surgical removal of wisdom teeth, anesthesia, medication, and follow-up care.  School fundraisers auction the surgery to generate funds for their schools for items including security measures, technology, facilities, or special projects. 

In the last two years, Oral Surgery Associates has donated over $35,000 in services to local school fundraisers.  Recipient schools include Creighton Prep, Mercy High School, Duchesne Academy, Gross Catholic High School, Skutt High School, St. Wenceslaus Catholic School and  St. Patrick Catholic School. 

Nebraska Mission of Mercy

We are proud to participate with The Nebraska Mission of Mercy to provide care to the uninsured, the under-insured and anyone who otherwise has difficulty getting to a dentist. Those who show up for care, children and adults, and don’t have any medically compromising condition that would prohibit them from receiving care,  are seen on a first-come, first-serve basis. Our surgeons will be working alongside area dental care providers including dentists, assistants, hygienists to provide quality oral care to those in need in our communities.

This 2-day event at Brownell Talbot will:

  • Have HUNDREDS of dental professionals volunteering their time and skill to care for those in need.
  • Have HUNDREDS of non-dental volunteers coordinating and helping patients through the event.
  • Provide access to basic dental care services at no charge to anyone regardless of financial ability to pay. For more information about the Nebraska Mission of Mercy visit:
