What is Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery?
Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery is the specialty of dentistry that includes the diagnosis and treatment of diseases, injuries, and defects involving both the functional and esthetic aspects of the hard and soft tissues of the oral and maxillofacial region. The term "maxillofacial" refers to the anatomic area of the jaws and face.
An oral and maxillofacial surgery residency provides extensive training in related medical and surgical disciplines such as general surgery, plastic surgery, internal medicine, critical care medicine, anesthesia, and pathology. Oral and maxillofacial surgeons are trained to treat patients in hospital settings, outpatient surgery centers, ambulatory surgery facilities, and private offices.
The mission of our oral and maxillofacial surgery practice is to provide state of the art, quality oral heath care to the community, to promote wellness, and to restore oral heath to best of our ability. To remain up-to-date on the best available treatment options through continuing education, literature review and corroboration with established dental and oral surgery organizations. To be fiscally responsible while providing the highest quality service and comfort.
A standard of excellence in personalized health care enables us to provide the quality services our patients deserve.
