Upon graduating medical school, he completed a one-year general surgery internship with LSU in New Orleans.
Dr. Casadaban was one of only three candidates selected from around the country to enter the highly competitive LSU program of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery in New Orleans-one of the most highly respected programs in the world. There he completed this 6 year post graduate surgical training program. He then moved with his family to this great city of Baton Rouge in 2005 to begin his private practice career with Baton Rouge Oral & Facial Surgery.
Years of extensive training gives him the opportunity to offer a wide variety of oral and facial procedures to his patients. These procedures include general anesthesia and intravenous sedation, removal of wisdom teeth, dental implants, pediatric and adult oral/facial trauma, jaw surgery, facial cosmetic and laser surgery, TMJ surgery, and surgical removal of oral and facial tumors with reconstruction of these defects.
Dr. Casadaban is affiliated with the Baton Rouge Cleft Lip and Palate team where he serves this community as a team consultant/surgeon correcting jaw deformities and tooth/ jawbone defects. He is considered an expert in jawbone deformities and utilizes the latest technology with 3-dimensional CT scanning combined with digital imagery to surgically correct these jawbone deformities.
Dr. Casadaban has a special interest in dental implants, including bone grafting procedures, complex CT scan planning, and peri-implant soft tissue augmentation. Such procedures include “dentures to implants and teeth in one day”. This is when a patient comes into the office having dentures that aren’t comfortable to wear. And in certain cases, these patients can have permanent teeth with implants in one day.
His medical school education further provides Dr. Casadaban the background knowledge and training that is required in treating the medically compromised and aging population.
He has published research in dental implants and bone grafting procedures. He lectures on these topics as well as “emergencies in the dental office”. These continuing education classes provide education for dentists around the state of Louisiana.
Dr. Casadaban is affiliated with resident training from his former program at LSU as a Clinical Assistant Professor. This involves resident teaching at Our Lady of the Lake Hospital in Baton Rouge. There he offers his expertise in oral and facial trauma care. He believes in the power of teaching, which allows him to offer his knowledge and experience to future surgeons while continuing to provide quality care for the community.
