Oral and maxillofacial surgeons are trained to treat a variety of injuries to the mouth, face and jaws. We are often called to the emergency room to evaluate and treat facial injuries. Fractures (broken bones) can involve the lower jaw, upper jaw, cheekbones, eye socket, and combinations of these bones. Treatments for these injuries are frequently managed in the operating room. Dr. Brian J. Dorfman has extensive training in oral and maxillofacial reconstruction and treatment of facial trauma.
