Robert Blair DDS Joins Your Community Health Center as Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon
Oral Surgeon, Robert Blair DDS, has joined the Your Community Health Center dental team. His addition enables the clinic to provide oral and maxillofacial surgery services to the patients of Your Community Health Center. He is a highly trained and board certified oral and maxillofacial surgeon who brings over 30 years of experience to the team.
Dr. Blair has local ties to the area as his family settled in Crawford and Pulaski counties. He spent his childhood growing up in Springfield, MO. He then served 27 years in the U.S. Army, specifically serving in the Vietnam War, and retiring as a Lieutenant Colonel.
Dr. Blair completed his degree at University of Missouri-Kansas City’s School of Dentistry and completed his residency at Tripler Army Medical Center, Honolulu, Hawaii. After retiring he served patients in Southern Missouri and with a local partner built a new dental clinic at St. John’s Regional Health Center known today as Mercy.
Dr. Blair focuses on tooth extraction, specifically wisdom teeth and difficult extractions, for adolescents and adults. He has extensive IV sedation and general anesthesia training allows him to make his patients feel relaxed and safe. By providing state-of-the-art and comprehensive care, he strives not only to help patients live healthier, more comfortable lives, but happier ones, too.
“I’m honored to join the Your Community Health Center team,” says Dr. Blair. “It’s a privilege to provide exceptional oral surgery care to Rolla and its surrounding communities. I am excited to provide care for patients that may not otherwise have access to it.”
“Our community has limited access for oral surgery services for patients with Medicaid and we are happy to have Dr. Blair join our dental team to expand access for those patients right here locally. Some of our patients have had to travel long distances to receive oral surgery services and now they will receive full dental care in our clinic.” Said Stuart Gipson, Chief Executive Officer.
Oral surgery services can be started by receiving a referral from your general dentist or calling 573-426-6718 to schedule a consultation with Dr. Blair. All Medicaid insurance plans are accepted and a self-pay on a sliding fee scale is available.
