Meet Dr. Silegy
“Visiting an oral and maxillofacial surgeon can be unnerving. Having a surgical procedure is stressful and you want to find a surgeon who is not only well-trained and skilled, but someone who will listen to your concerns, explain your options and alleviate your fears. I am committed to providing uncompromising care for my patients in a relaxed, friendly and professional environment. Above all, I want to give you the level of care that you deserve and make your experience with my staff and me a positive one.”
—Tim Silegy, D.D.S.
In addition to maintaining a private practice in Long Beach, Dr. Silegy teaches continuing education courses to physicians, dentists, nurses, hygienists and auxiliaries throughout the country. He has also traveled to Latin America on medical missions to help the impoverished.
