Oral Surgery

Why choose an oral surgeon?

Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery is a sub-speciality in dentistry, in which training extends 4-6  years beyond dental school.

The oral surgeon specializes in more complex surgical cases within the oral cavity, which include wisdom teeth extractions, dental implants, bone grafting, evaluation and treatment of oral pathology, corrective jaw surgery, facial trauma, cleft lip and palate, and cosmetic facial surgery. In addition, the oral surgeon has extensive training in anesthesia, where they spend 4-5 months on the anesthesia staff in a hospital and running the anesthesia for operating room level surgeries.
