Specialties

We perform many types of procedures related to oral surgery at Riverside Oral and Facial Surgery. Dr. Hunt’s expertise in procedures (including dental extractions, dental implants, preparation for orthodontics, oral pathology and many more) make him a knowledgeable and popular oral health care provider in the northwest Georgia area.

Riverside’s Surgeons are uniquely qualified to perform cosmetic procedures involving the aesthetic aspects of the face, mouth, teeth, jaw, nose, ears, neck & eyes.  Due to recent advances and specialized techniques, many facial cosmetic surgery procedures are minimally invasive and can be performed in the office setting using local and/or intravenous sedation or General Anesthesia. As a result, patients are able to recover quicker and benefit from the cost savings that office-based surgery provides.A consultation with Dr. Hunt or Dr. Smalley can determine if you are a candidate for these procedures.

Skin care & enhancements also available.

Payment Options

We deliver the finest care at the most reasonable cost to our patients, therefore payment is due at the time service is rendered.

We accept all major credit cards, exact cash, (electronic) checks and offer Care Credit & River City Bank Financing.

Both insurances may cover your treatment, please provide us with your insurance information prior to your appointment as this will allow us time to determine participation and benefit information.

A variety of insurance companies are accepted, & we work diligently to assist you in receiving the maximum coverage for your procedures. However, your coverage is based on the contract between you & your insurance provider. You may have coverage from either medical or dental insurance, depending on the procedure. We assist you in maximizing your coverage.  We can then reach out to your insurance provider during your appointment, and compile as much information as possible to best understand your out of pocket expenses.
