Why an Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeon?


Oral & maxillofacial surgeons are dentists specializing in surgery of the mouth, face and jaws. Oral surgeons receive an extra four to seven years of hospital-based surgical and medical training, after dental school. They prepare themselves to do a wide range of procedures including all types of surgery of the hard tissue (bones) and soft tissues of the face, mouth and neck.
