Welcome to Acorn Surgical Centre!

Oral surgery includes the extraction of teeth and the removal of wisdom teeth, with or without the use of IV sedation to put the patient ‘to sleep’. Acorn Dental is very proud and excited to be the first dental clinic in Salmon Arm to offer oral surgery with IV sedation – otherwise known as sleep dentistry. Dr. Sandy Crocker is available to provide these services to the residents of Salmon Arm and the Shuswap.

Previously, patients would have had to travel to Vernon, Kelowna, or Kamloops for an appointment with an oral surgeon, with repeat trips for a surgery date and follow-up appointments. This posed a significant inconvenience to the residents of Salmon Arm in terms of the time and associated costs of traveling out of town, combined with time away from work and / or other commitments, not to mention added hassles should post-surgical complications arise.

  • Oral surgery available in Salmon Arm
  • No referrals required
  • No specialist fees
