Meet the oral & Maxillofacial Surgeon

Dr. Laura K. Pashkowsky


Dr. Pashkowsky (“Dr. Pash”) is a Board Certified Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeon trained at UCLA and University of Illinois of Chicago. She has an expertise in wisdom teeth extractions, dental implants, surgical orthodontics, bone grafting, sinus lifts, full mouth dental rehabilitation (All-on-Four, All-on-Six, Zygomatic implants), and pathology. Dr. Pashkowsky has completed extensive anesthesia training and safely provides IV anesthesia to her patients who elect to be asleep during treatment. She loves helping her patients achieve their dental goals; whether it is relieving them of a painful tooth, restoring their smile through implants, or providing surgical adjunctive treatment for orthodontic patients. She treats children, adolescents, adults, and geriatric patients. 

Dr. Pashkowsky understands many patients are nervous to see an oral surgeon for the first time, so she takes her time to explain everything, answer questions, and goes the extra mile to ensure her patients are comfortable.
