The Oral Surgery Clinic of La Crosse was first established in 1977 by Dr. Merrill Cina.  Upon his retirement in 1996, Dr. Kenneth Kempf took over the practice.  In 1999, Dr. David Ludington, a Milwaukee native, returned to Wisconsin to purchase the practice from Dr. Kempf.  In 2004, Dr. Ludington moved the location of the practice from the Franciscan Skemp Professional Arts Building in La Crosse, to the current location in Onalaska’s Elmwood Business Park.

A standard of excellence in personalized dental care enables us to provide the quality dental services our patients deserve. Should a dental emergency occur, we make every effort to see and care for you as soon as possible.

The Oral Surgery Clinic of La Crosse practices a full scope of oral and maxillofacial surgery with expertise ranging from routine dental extractions, to corrective jaw surgery and wisdom tooth removal. We can also diagnose and treat facial pathology, facial injuries, some TMJ disorders, and perform a full range of dental implant and bone grafting procedures.

Dr. Ludington’s staff is trained in assisting with a full range of dental anesthesia, including local anesthesia to outpatient general anesthesia.
