While Coulee Region Implant and Oral Surgery Center may have a new name and face, it is still full of friendly staff who are dedicated to quality dental and oral health care. The practice was started in 1973 by Dr. OJ Anderson. Dr. Tim Durtche joined the practice in 1979. Dr. Les Timm joined Dr. Durtsche in 2015 and is now caring on their legacy with Dr. Chuck Polzin. Dr’s Anderson and Durtsche were instrumental in bringing dental implants to Lacrosse and now we pride ourselves with continuing to provide care for the residents of the tri-state region. The team at Coulee Region are honored that you trust your oral and dental care to us. Whether you have been a patient for years or are visiting for the first time, the team will take the time to get to know you and treat you like friends.
The team at Coulee Region understand that dental procedures can be scary or stressful and IV sedation can be a great solution for a successful experience. Dr. Timm and Polzin are Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons. This means they both have elected to go on for an additional fours years of training after dental school. They both trained at the nationally recognized Gundersen Health System. While there they both spent five months of dedicated anesthesia training. They then spent the remaining two and half years providing various levels of IV sedation and anesthesia in a controlled manner supervised by Gundersen Surgeons.
