Our Doctors Are the Difference

Andrew Mueller, DMD, MD

Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon

Dr. Andrew Mueller loves being an oral and Maxillofacial surgeon. After completing both dental and then medical school, he did a general surgery residency and an oral/maxillofacial surgery residency (both at Parkland hospital in Dallas, Texas). During his residency, he was trained to put faces back together after facial trauma from car crashes, gun shot wounds, dog bites, etc.; to resect tumors or cancer from the head and neck and reconstruct the area to restore function and appearance. He has performed countless general anesthetics in the operating room, learning how to safely put patients to sleep and wake them back up.  

Dr. Mueller loved all of this, but what he didn’t know when he finished his residency was that he would play a major role in one of the most important medical advances in human history: the ability to finally replace your teeth.

Adam Forehand, DDS

Restorative Doctor

Dr. Adam Forehand is the Cosmetic and Restorative Dentist for Doctors Implants Charleston. He was born and raised in a small town in Alabama, which is where he acquired his “very subtle” southern accent. From the time he was a child, two personality traits shined through, the love for working with his hands and the love for helping people. So naturally dentistry was a perfect career fit!

Dr. Forehand attended Auburn University for college (War Eagle!) and The University of Alabama for dental school. He chose to continue his training by attending residency at The Foundry Dental Center in Alabama.
