The Specialty of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery
Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery encompasses the diagnosis, medical and surgical treatment of diseases, defects, and injuries to the oral/maxillofacial region---maxillofacial refers to the jaws and face.  The oral and maxillofacial surgeon has completed extensive university and hospital training  after dental school and has been trained and certified in the administration of local and general anesthesia and sedation within the office setting.  The surgeon's scope includes the extraction of teeth, surgical removal of impacted teeth, surgical root canal therapy (apicoectomy), treatment of injuries to the teeth, jaws and facial bones, preparing the jaws for denture construction, placement of dental implants, treatment of TMJ disorders, treatment of pathology (tumors, cysts and infection) of the jaws, and cosmetic surgery to improve jaw alignment, function, and appearance.
Our highly trained staff consists of an EMT, a licensed phlebotomist, , an LPN, dental assistants and a medical receptionist to provide for your every need. We understand that you may be anxious about your visit and have questions regarding your treatment.  We are devoted to caring for your individual needs and are dedicated to providing you with the finest care available, in as gentle and as efficient a manner as possible.  Surgical treatment is unpredictable and although we make every effort to keep on schedule, we may run late.  We apologize for any inconvenience and assure you that the patient in the chair is most important to us and deserves our complete attention and as much time as they need for the best possible result.
