Dr. Deno Tiboris
Born and raised in Sheboygan, WI, Dr. Deno Tiboris always knew he wanted to study dentistry. Both his father and grandfather were general dentists (Marquette Dental alumni) practicing in his hometown. After earning his degree in zoology from UW-Madison, Dr. Tiboris studied dentistry at Tufts University in Boston, where he received a DMD. His four years of oral surgery residency was at Washington Hospital Center in Washington, D.C. During his time in D.C., he was fortunate enough to experience advanced training at the Children’s National Medical Center as well as Johns Hopkins University.
He enjoys all aspects of oral surgery, particularly corrective jaw surgery (orthognathic surgery), pathology and complex bone grafting procedures needed for the placement of dental implants. During his OMS residency, Dr. Tiboris was fortunate enough to have a large amount of training in implant dentistry and he has personally performed hundreds of implant surgeries and advanced bone grafting procedures. He developed a particular skill with zirconia implants, which allow patients a metal-free alternative to conventional titanium dental implants. He prides himself in finding ways for any patient to be a candidate for dental implants.
In his spare time, Dr. Tiboris enjoys traveling, cooking, skiing and playing his violin. He is an avid Wisconsin Badgers fan and loves attending football games in Madison every fall.

State of the Art Technology
At Santarelli & Tiboris Oral and Facial Surgery, we are committed to the utmost patient comfort and providing the best possible patient care. Utilizing the latest technological advances in equipment allows us to reduce patient discomfort, avoid traditionally invasive and painful procedures, and reduce the time and number of sessions required for procedures. The following are some of those technologies:
Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT)
Dental cone beam computed tomography (CT) is a special type of x-ray equipment used when regular dental or facial x-rays are not sufficient. Your doctor may use this technology to produce three dimensional (3-D) images of your teeth, soft tissues, nerve pathways and bone in a single scan. CBCT is also used in conjunction with special software to aid in planning and placing dental implants.
Intraoral scanners were designed to allow for elimination of conventional impression materials as well as facilitating a digital workflow. This means cleaner record capture, less trips to the office and faster turn around of prosthetics from the lab.
Piezoelectric Bone Surgery is a process that utilizes piezoelectric vibrations in the application of cutting bone tissue. It is indicated for use in oral, maxillofacial, cranial and spinal procedures. By adjusting the ultrasonic frequency of the device, it is possible to cut hard tissue while leaving soft tissue untouched.
Using a radiofrequency device in place of a scalpel minimizes bleeding and can improve precision in varying intraoral and extraoral surgical procedures
Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP) is a mainstay of periodontal therapy. Lasers have multiple applications for use around teeth and dental implants.
Centrifuge for PRP (platelet rich plasma)
Your doctor can draw and use your own blood products to assist with soft tissue healing. Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) and Platelet-Rich Fibrin (PRF) are the most commonly used extracts.
These German-designed zero-gravity ergonomic patient chairs offer the most functionality and comfort available on the market. This technology improves positioning for both patient and provider during longer procedures.
