Oral Surgery & Implant Studio Leads The Way With National Design

The 2016 Office Design and Construction for the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon is an expansive practice management resource created by the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons (AAOMS).

This publication is the main resource that oral surgeons throughout the country utilize as a guideline to emulate the very best offices in the nation. This new edition was prepared with the intention of assisting oral surgeons with the design, building and/or retrofitting of their practice space, with an emphasis on green building principles and the creation of green practices. A photo of ORA Oral Surgery & Implant Studio has the honors to grace the cover of this publication. Additionally, this invaluable resource includes an in-depth case study about LEED Gold Certification and the green building and sustainable features of this downtown Chicago oral surgery practice.

ORA Oral Surgery & Implant Studio has long placed an importance on green and sustainable features in the creation and operation of the practice. In addition to achieving adhering to USGBC LEED standards, the practice has received EDA Gold Certification by the Eco-Dentistry Association, has been recognized by the Council for Greening the Operating Room Initiative and is a multi-award recipient of Practice Greenhealth’s Partner for Change. ORA’s owner, Steven Koos, D.D.S., M.D., is also a Certified Sustainability Practitioner (CSR-P) by the Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment (IEMA).

Pleasantly surprised by post-surgery follow up

It was a pleasure to have straight forward information provided and constant follow up after my surgery. I was pleasantly surprised to receive a call from Dr. Steven Koos late at night to make sure I was having a healthy recovery. And the cherry on top of the ice cream was how updated the office was. State of the art equipment that I had no doubt I was in good hands.

Great place and great staff.

Great place and great staff. I was well informed about the entire procedure and the follow up process. I also felt very at ease knowing the doctor called me later in the day and him providing me his number in case anything happens.

They took great care of me.

I had an amazing experience. I went in scared and in pain and honestly they took great care of me. I would definitely be going back for any dental need. They are friendly and make you feel at ease.

Earns my trust for comfort and care

I had two implants, a sinus lift and one other procedure within the last year or so. I can’t speak highly enough of Dr. Koos and his staff. I was well informed about my needs and next steps. And more importantly, all went well with very little discomfort. I’m usually a little skiddish when it comes to dental surgery and any associated pain. ORA Oral Surgery & Implant Studio earns my trust for comfort and care.
