Oral Pathology

Oral and maxillofacial surgeons receive extensive training in the head, neck, and in oral pathology. We are the go-to for dentists and doctors who have patients with more specialized issues. Our experience as surgeons allows us to not only diagnose but also treat and restore abnormalities and diseases of the mouth, face, and jaw.

Why an oral surgeon vs. dentist?

Oral and maxillofacial surgeons receive specialized training to treat a variety of conditions affecting the head, neck, face, mouth, and jaws.

Plus, we have advanced equipment to make procedures more affordable, and significantly more comfortable, for you to have the best overall experience.
