I could write a book about all I learned from former UCLA coach John Wooden. Although he died 6 years ago at the age of 99, his example continues to positively influence people from all walks of life. Most recently, Coach Wooden was featured in a cover story in Success Magazine. I consider the time I spent with him and our correspondence as one of the highlights of my life. His example, the interest he took in me and his philosophy of life contributed to my success as a husband, father, surgeon, business owner, teammate, and friend. And although we all called him Coach, he wasn’t even really my coach. A Phone Call As a 17-year-old high school student, I was recruited to play college basketball. By my senior year, I...

For the 12th year in a row, Dr. Robert Guyette, M.D., D.M.D. was voted as one of the Top Dentists by Phoenix Magazine. How are the dentists chosen? Every spring, Phoenix Magazine mails out 1,600 surveys to randomly selected dentists throughout the valley. The survey asks the dentists whom they deem the best in each of the nine specialties. The surveys get tallied by Phoenix Magazine and Phoenix magazine obtains the dentist information from the Arizona State Board of Dental Examiners. Phoenix Magazine does not give any preference to dentists who advertise in their publication. The Top Dentists are determined purely based on the number of votes the dentist receives. With the exception of the five randomly chosen dentists that are profiled in the magazine, the dentists have...

In 1975, at the young age of 22 and after finishing his career with the University of Kentucky, Dr. Guyette was drafted by the NBA as well as the ABA. Instead of playing basketball in the United States, he accepted the offer to play professional basketball for the premier basketball team of the Spanish league, the Futbol Club Barcelona globally known as “Barca”. That decision continues to have a positive impact on his life and that of his family, the friends he made in Barcelona, and now his oral surgery, facial cosmetic and implant patients at the Guyette Facial & Oral Surgery Center. Dr. Guyette learned to speak Spanish rather quickly as an American on a Spanish team with a Yugoslavian coach. As anyone may imagine, learning team plays...

At the Guyette Facial & Oral Surgery Center, with offices in Scottsdale and Avondale, IV sedation, in conjunction with local anesthetic, is used in many of our surgical procedures. Surgeries such as All On 4 (Teeth In A Day), dental implants, removal of wisdom teeth and facial cosmetic surgery, including facelifts, rhinoplasty, and blepharoplasty. The combination of IV sedation and local anesthetic provides a very safe and comfortable environment for patients to undergo these types of procedures. In order to enhance the patient experience and help create a relaxing environment, we normally have light music playing in the surgical suite to help patients relax. Recently, in a publication of American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery, Michael Gellis, M.D., from Novi, Michigan, addressed the patient awareness of their surroundings while under...

When you lose a tooth or multiple teeth, you may experience different dental problems. There's the issue of aesthetics, which is obvious, but there are also issues with function and bite strength to keep in mind. That may be why dental implants have been growing in popularity for people looking to replace missing teeth. They are strong, stable, and even prevent various oral health problems from occurring. A Scottsdale oral surgeon can discuss all these issues with you in greater detail, though we'd like to look at the basics of tooth loss, dental implants, and bone grafting right now. About Tooth Loss When you lose a tooth, a gap is left behind. Both the gum tissue and the jaw bone are no longer supporting a tooth/tooth root in the area...

During our second year of dental school, my best friend fainted after getting a TB test, fell and landed on his face, fracturing his cheek bone and the bones around his left eye. The chairman of the oral surgery department allowed me to observe the surgical procedure to repair the fractures, and I was hooked. I began spending more time in the oral surgery department and following the residents on rounds and to the operating room. At this point, I knew my calling. What do oral surgeons do that most people...
