Why Choose an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon?

When it comes to performing oral surgery, you want a highly trained and experienced physician for you and your family’s needs. Oral and maxillofacial surgeons specialize in treating conditions of the face, mouth and teeth through intricate procedures, including many types of oral surgery. The extra training and education oral surgeons receive is important to complete complex surgeries with the best results, protecting the health and well-being of their patients. At Stafford Oral Surgery & Specialists, our surgeons and support team have the experience and expertise to care for your oral health needs.

Oral and maxillofacial surgeons are dentists that have received 4-6 years of additional training after graduating from dental school in the oral surgery specialty. During this specialized training, oral surgeons study pain control and anesthesia methods, as well as surgical procedures. This includes completing residencies in a hospital setting, treating various oral conditions and performing surgery on patients. This extensive education ensures that oral surgeons are prepared for completing many different types of oral surgeries and treatments safely and effectively for their future patients.
