“Getting positive recognition for this book is an honor,” said Dr. Hayes, “but it is even more rewarding to know patients will benefit from this timely, useful information. My purpose in writing was to inform patients, especially those undergoing procedures like dental implants that involve surgery, of the new advancements and possibilities so that they will both feel more comfortable with those procedures and know what to look for when choosing an oral surgeon.”
Dr. Hayes’ chapter focuses on the latest digital techniques and advances in oral surgery and cosmetic dentistry. The chapter also explores how utilizing this cutting-edge technology improves safety and the quality of results that patients receive.
“The Million Dollar Smile” was created as a common-sense approach to allow readers to learn the facts about dental treatments from the experts. The book is written in layman’s language that the average person can easily understand. It is intended not as a textbook for dental professionals, but as a helpful guide for ordinary people looking for top quality dental work. The expert contributors to “The Million Dollar Smile” are dentists who have advanced training and skills in modern dentistry and vast experience with procedures such as dental implants, veneers, and orthodontics.
Dr. Hayes received his Bachelor of Science in biochemistry from the United States Air Force Academy and then moved on to the University of Colorado’s School of Dentistry, where he graduated magna cum laude with his Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree in 2003. Dr. Hayes worked, post-graduation, as a general dentist at Lackland Air Force base in Texas. After realizing he was interested in pursuing an oral surgery specialization, he moved on to study the specialty at Wilford Hall Medical Center and became the Chief of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at a base in Ramstein, Germany, offering exceptional care to wounded soldiers coming out of the Middle East. He was eventually named the U.S. Air Force Dentist of the Year in 2013.
Currently, Dr. Hayes is the chief oral surgeon at Coal Creek Oral Surgery and Dental Implant Center, a well-respected educator, and a member of numerous professional organizations, including the American and Colorado Dental Associations, and the Colorado Society of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons. Dr. Hayes is passionate about service, whether it’s for the armed forces or for his patients. “Serving others is a huge part of who I am, as a doctor and as a person. Helping my patients get the very best care, keeping them comfortable and safe, and leaving them with a smile they love – that’s why I do what I do.”
