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.
