Northern Virginia Surgical Arts started providing oral and facial surgical care to patients in Arlington in 1997, then opened an office in Gainesville in 2000 and another in Manassas Park in 2006.
It continued its westward expansion with an office in Warrenton that opened in January.
Dr. Joseph Arzadon, who founded the practice said that he gets referrals from as far west as Culpeper and already has some patients who live in Warrenton. “I figured we should come closer to them,” he explained.
Though currently open Monday, Tuesday and Thursday, the Warrenton office will expand to five days a week by September, Arzadon said.
Arzadon was raised in Alexandria and graduated from the University of Maryland School of Dentistry and the University of Connecticut School of Medicine.
The other physicians in the practice are Dr. David Liang, Dr. Kenneth Blais and Dr. John J. McElveen.
Liang was born in Taiwan and graduated from the University of California, Columbia University College of Medicine and Emory University.
Blais grew up in Seattle, Washington, and graduated from Tufts University School of Dental Medicine and Louisiana State University.
McElveen graduated from the Xavier University College of Pharmacy, the Howard University College of Dentistry and the University of Missouri Medical School.
The oral and facial surgical services the team provides include facial cosmetic procedures, dental implants, bone grafting, and reconstructive and maxillofacial surgery. The surgeries can correct conditions, defects and injuries of the mouth, teeth, jaws and face.
Arzadon said the practice uses “surgical navigation” -- computer-assisted surgery -- to guide placement of an implant.
“It’s a very neat and accurate way of placing an implant in the mouth, just one instance of how it’s used,” he said.
A spa in a separate area of the 3,000 square ft. office in Warrenton provides facials, chemical peels, Botox treatments, laser skin treatments and cosmetic surgery such as facelifts, eyelid surgery and nose reshaping.
The doctors and staff of 25 employed by the practice rotate among the four offices.
The Warrenton office at 361 Walker Dr. Suite 202 was the scene of an open house on June 6.
Fauquier Chamber of Commerce President Joe Martin and staff welcomed the doctors and staff.
“We hope to see more beautiful smiles in Fauquier County,” said Martin before a ceremonial ribbon cutting. Visitors toured the office suite, talked to staff and enjoyed offerings from a buffet table and drinks bar.
