About Dr. Drew Shessel

Dr. Drew Shessel was inspired to pursue a career in oral surgery by his father and grandfather, both of whom practiced medicine in Atlanta. Born and raised locally, he always knew he wanted to return home to provide his oral and maxillofacial surgery services. He attended the University of Georgia for his undergraduate career and then completed his Doctor of Medicine in Dentistry (DMD) at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston. While there, he received a scholarship for excellence in oral and maxillofacial surgery.

Before beginning his residency, he completed an oral and maxillofacial surgery internship at LSU in New Orleans. Then, he moved to Florida to finish his training at Broward Health Medical Center and Nova Southeastern University. While in Florida, he excelled in a full-scope oral and maxillofacial surgery residency. His training included the treatment of a wide range of oral and facial conditions as well as the safe administration of all forms of anesthesia.

After training, Dr. Shessel sought a private practice opportunity that would allow him to provide the kind of personalized patient care for which he is known. He and his surgical team strive to offer the highest quality service with a caring touch that always ensures the best interests of his patients. He enjoys being a part of the team at Oral Surgery Specialists of Atlanta, and he finds it incredibly rewarding to be able to offer patients everything they may need to feel better immediately.
