Patients feel at ease and know they are in caring hands when they meet Dr. Andrés E. Guerra-Andrade, physician and owner of Oral Surgery and Implant Specialists/Facial Cosmetics of Lutz.
As a highly trained oral and maxillofacial surgeon, Dr. Guerra has made a significant difference for the many patients he’s treated in the past decade.
Oral Surgery and Implant Specialists/Facial Cosmetics of Lutz prides itself on providing the highest quality of care for its patients. One way it achieves this is by being a narcotic-free practice, which Dr. Guerra is extremely proud of.
“We have a huge problem in the U.S. with addictions caused by narcotic prescriptions,” says Dr. Guerra. “Choosing to become a narcotic-free practice has made me the happiest oral surgeon in the town.”
Dr. Guerra is a native of Caracas, Venezuela, and attended the School of Dentistry at the University of Venezuela, where he received his doctorate degree. He completed his Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery degree and his Master’s in Dental Sciences at the University of Puerto Rico’s Medical Science Campus.
It was never his plan move to the United States, but ultimately Dr. Guerra and his family both decided it would be best for his career.
“There’s a lot of political and social issues happening in Venezuela. It’s not easy being away, but at least now I can financially help my family back home,” says Dr. Guerra.
In the summer of 2019, Dr. Guerra took over Oral Surgery and Implant Specialists/Facial Cosmetics of Lutz with his wife Denisse, a pediatric dentist who works alongside him.
“Being able to have my own practice is the biggest career achievement I’ve had in my life,” says Dr. Guerra.
Oral Surgery and Implant Specialists/Facial Cosmetics of Lutz offers a wide range of services, such as wisdom teeth removal, extractions, implants, diagnosis of oral cancer, eyelid surgery, facelifts and so much more.
The practice also offers noninvasive facial cosmetic surgeries, such as Botox, fillers, microneedling, and skin-tightening procedures.
“As we get older, our facial volume goes down,” explains Dr. Guerra, “We lose fat and our collagen becomes weak. These procedures help the patient decrease the speed of aging and improves their self-esteem.”
Dr. Guerra is particularly excited about TempSure Envi, which is a nonsurgical skin-tightening treatment that uses radiofrequency energy to firm up loose skin on the face and body. The heat from the radiofrequency triggers the body’s natural reaction to produce new collagen, thus leaving the patient with a tighter, more youthful glow to their skin.
