“What could we have done differently to make your experience at COFS better?” is a question post-operative patients routinely have been asked by Dr. Cyr during their follow-up appointment. Always striving to improve, always looking out for his patients’ best interests, always open to new ways to make excellence in oral surgery the norm is Dr. Cyr’s active goal as he partners with his patients. And he adds a generous sprinkling of good humor along the way as well.
Dr. Cyr grew up in upstate New York, “which is ironic,” he notes, “because I hate cold weather!” Dental school at VCU/MCV brought him to VA. Following dental school, intending to become a general dentist, he pursued a residency in the Air Force in order to strengthen his general dentistry skills. During that time, he was exposed to oral surgery. He credits his dental school roommate, long-time good friend, and fellow RVA oral surgeon, Dr. Walter Murphy, for encouraging him to pursue Oral Surgery.
Time off will likely find him playing some golf, trying to exercise, watching sports on TV, or heading to Lake Gaston, where he and Susie, their kids, and their friends, can be found enjoying time with each other, pursuing water sports, playing corn hole or buckets, enjoying sunsets, and “eating more than we should,” he jokes with a grin. And there’s usually a bunch of dogs thrown in the mix.
