Experienced Surgical Staff

The surgeons of Oral & Facial Surgery Center manage a wide variety of procedures relating to the mouth, teeth and facial regions. The surgical team practices a full scope of oral and maxillofacial surgery with expertise ranging from dental implant surgery and wisdom tooth removal. This also includes techniques designed to rebuild bone structure with minimal surgical intervention and optimal patient comfort. We can also diagnose and treat facial pain, injuries, fractures, and lacerations.
Our staff is trained in assisting with Intravenous (IV) sedation or outpatient general anesthesia in our state-of-the-art surgery centers. Patients are continuously monitored during and after surgery.
