The Cutting-Edge of Oral Surgery Technology

Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery is a unique surgical specialty that blends together the fields of surgery, medicine, and dentistry. It requires 4-6 years of rigorous, hospital-based surgical and anesthesia training after graduation from dental school.

Our surgeons are trained in and practice the full scope of the specialty and manage a wide variety of problems relating to the mouth, teeth, face, head, and neck regions. Our primary areas of interest include surgical removal of wisdom teeth, dental implant surgery and related hard and soft tissue grafting techniques, orthognathic (corrective) jaw surgery, oral/craniomaxillofacial pathology and reconstruction, and safe and comfortable outpatient general anesthesia.

As faculty members at the University of Southern California and Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, our surgeons are also actively involved in educating dental/medical students, residents, fellows, and the next generation of surgeons. As academic surgeons, they have multiple publications in medical journals and have authored book chapters in surgical textbooks. They stay up to date with the latest clinical research and have expertise in the most cutting-edge technology and surgical techniques available to deliver the best possible outcome for our patients.

Our surgeons at Pacific Coast Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery know that good medicine comes from the heart, which is why they are proud to partner with the University of Southern California to correct birth defects in children and give them a bright future.

Schedule Appointment

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought about some changes and considerations that will likely be permanent. As our surgeons have been working through the pandemic to treat emergency patients, we have adopted many measures above and beyond the current standards to ensure the safety of our patients and providers.
  • All patients will undergo a screening both over the phone and upon arrival above current infection control standards. This includes non-contact temperature screening of all patients and any accompanying individuals.
  • We will schedule patients so that social distancing in our waiting rooms is strictly observed and request that only one person accompany any patient.
  • People in the waiting room will be required to wear masks at all times.
  • We are fortunate that in the planning of our offices, we designed dedicated treatment rooms for each patient ensuring both privacy and isolation for safety. Each consultation room is thoroughly cleaned between patients and consecutive patients are seated in alternating rooms to allow for this increased turnover time.
  • Our providers and staff are outfitted with the masks, gowns, face shields, and shoe covers when seeing each patient.

As we have been one of the few Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery offices to continue to provide emergency care throughout the emergence of Covid-19, we have learned and developed techniques and approaches to best treat patients in this environment. Your safety and that of our staff and providers is a priority and we welcome any questions or suggestions in that regard.

We believe strongly that we are providing the safest possible environment for your oral surgical needs while still providing the same level of personalized and compassionate care that has been our trademark.
