Oral Surgeons at Midwest Oral Surgery & Dental Implants Raise Funds for Childhood Cancer

At Midwest Oral Surgery we take great pride in being leaders in our community.

Respected Omaha, NE oral surgeons, Drs. Jerome Wees, Benjamin Anderson and John Wewel, recently hosted the Team Jack Foundation’s “An Evening with Napa Valley” event at the Happy Hollow Country Club. The event offered attendees the opportunity to taste highly sought-after wine and food pairings, while learning about the Team Jack’s Pediatric Brain Tumor Program at the University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC) and the Children’s Hospital & Medical Center in Omaha, NE. The Team Jack Foundation is a multi-disciplinary childhood brain tumor foundation and is raising awareness to their cause.

During the event, attendees sampled featured wines from Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars in Napa Valley, CA along with heavy hors d’oeuvres. Attendees also learned about Team Jack’s Pediatric Brain Tumor Program and the mission it upholds. In 2013, the Team Jack Foundation and Nebraska State Legislature co-funded a $3 million pediatric brain tumor program at the University of Nebraska Medical Center. Additionally, Team Jack Foundation pledged $5 million to the POWER5 Brain Cancer Initiative campaign. Proceeds from “An Evening with Napa Valley” as well as wine purchases made from the event helped fund the Team Jack Foundation. Midwest Oral Surgery & Dental Implants has supported the Team Jack Foundation through their Annual Team Jack Gala and is proud to continue to support the fight against child brain cancer.

The Midwest Oral Surgery & Dental Implants oral surgeons are passionate about health and offer advanced technology and modern dental treatments to not only solve immediate needs, but to enhance patients’ overall health as well. Commonly, patients seek full mouth dental implants as a solution to tooth loss, but the results often improve a patient’s overall lifestyle like diet and facial structure as well.

Full mouth dental implant treatment is a complex surgical procedure commonly performed by oral surgeons due to the advanced nature of the procedure. For patients who have experienced extensive tooth loss or have many failing teeth, full mouth dental implants can replace all their teeth with lifelike and functional new teeth. The procedure requires surgical placement of four to six dental implants into the jawbone which support a bridge of new teeth. These new teeth differ from traditional dentures because they are made of high-quality material and rest comfortably on the implants, not the gums. Patients will be able to eat, smile and speak comfortably, improving both their oral and overall health.

“At Midwest Oral Surgery we take great pride in being leaders in our community. We have been an established practice for over 30 years,” says Dr. Wewel. “We can take the most fearful patient and provide them with a safe, predictable outcome by starting with the end in mind. We pride ourselves on treating patients right.”
