Ian C. Tingey, D.D.S.

Dr.TiingeyDr. Ian C. Tingey, who hails from Windsor in Ontario Canada, received his D.D.S degree from the University of Western Ontario prior to beginning his residency in oral and maxillofacial surgery at The University of Connecticut School of Dental Medicine.

Upon completion of his residency, he was invited to join the surgeons at CTMAX, where he is now a managing partner. He also serves on the faculty at the UCONN Dental School’s residency program in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and he is the chairman of the Division of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at Saint Francis Hospital.

“I take great pride in providing care to patients in a comfortable environment, while recognizing that while we perform these surgical procedures on a daily basis, this is often a new and stressful experience for the patient. Whether treatment involves complex bone grafting prior to implant placement, or something as straight forward as removing wisdom teeth, we truly want the patient to feel that we listen to, and address their concerns regarding treatment, and work hard to reduce their anxiety.”

Dr. Tingey and his partners also have proven themselves as essential members of the team that provides care for more serious conditions such as facial trauma, and developmental deformities of the jaws.

“It is always gratifying to see patients pleased with the results of my efforts”.

Barry R. McGuire, D.M.D.

Dr.McGuireDr. Barry R. McGuire was born and raised in New London, Connecticut. His father, Dr. Roland McGuire, was a general dentist, so from an early age he had a strong interest in the field of dentistry. Dr. McGuire is a graduate of Boston College and The University of Connecticut School of Dental Medicine. He completed his surgical training through the University of Connecticut Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Residency Program. He joined CTMAX in 1990 as a partner.

When asked what aspects of oral and maxillofacial surgery he finds most rewarding, Dr. McGuire cited two aspects. “First, this is a field of
medicine and dentistry that allows one to provide a degree of comfort and relaxation to patients who are often apprehensive about a particular treatment. Second, advances in our field, most notably in the areas of safe, comfortable anesthesia, 3D imaging, and virtual surgery have improved
our ability to provide the best of care to our patients, most significantly in the placement of dental implants and reconstructive jaw surgery.”

Brett A. Weyman, D.D.S., M.D.

Dr.WeymanDr. Brett A. Weyman, a former resident of Northeastern Pennsylvania, received his B.S. degree in biology from Villanova University, his D.D.S. from Baltimore College of Dental Surgery-University of Maryland, and his M.D. degree from the University of Connecticut Medical School. Now a partner at CTMAX and an Assistant Clinical Professor at UCONN’s dental school, he also serves on the University’s Educational Council.

“No one likes going to the dentist, so we do everything we can do to make each patient’s experience at CTMAX a good one.”

And when asked about the technical advances happening at such a rapid rate, he is very clear that while those advances are important, he wants the human element in his specialty to remain primary. “As a group,” he explains, “we have always been at the forefront of new technology and while surgery is now even done with robotics, we certainly feel the wisdom of human experience will never be replaced.” Dr. Weyman also notes that “because oral surgeons can exercise their knowledge of such specialties as anesthesia, dentistry, facial orthopedics, dermatology, pediatrics, pathology, aesthetics, and a variety of other disciplines in medicine, there’s never a boring day.”

And indeed, recently, he was called to St. Francis Hospital to treat a young woman shot in the face. One day he was handling a complex implant case, and the next day he was scheduled to reconstruct the jaw of a patient who had suffered with severe malocclusion for years.
