Oral surgeons are dental specialists who provide surgical procedures for both the hard and soft tissues of the mouth and face. An oral surgeon is often referred to when non-surgical treatments will not be extensive or effective to fully treat an injury, condition, or disease.
Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons

In addition to four years of dental school, oral surgeons have completed advanced education programs. Oral surgeons may be called in to diagnose or treat various diseases, injuries, and disorders of the face, mouth, and jaw.
