Our practice has been in continuous operation at our Metairie and New Orleans locations since 1987. The oral surgeons that have been partners in our practice include Drs. Clay Hunley, Ed Vocke, Bob Lane and Charles Silvia. Drs. Hunley and Vocke have since retired in 1998 and 2004, respectively. The practice continues today under the name of Southern Oral Surgery, LLP, with Dr. Robert E. Lane and Dr. Charles P. Silvia, Jr. as the current partners. Drs. Lane and Silvia are each board certified and hold standing as diplomats of the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery.
