What Our Guests Are Saying...


What is an Oral Surgeon?

Oral surgeons are amongst the most highly trained of all dental specialists. However, they are far more than just a dentist as oral surgeons focus on the entire maxillofacial region.

These specialists focus on the diagnosis and surgical treatment of a wide range of problems affecting the teeth, jaws, mouth and face. In this way, oral surgery can be used to improve both the function and appearance of the mouth and face.
