Oral and maxillofacial surgeons are required to complete years of training before becoming qualified and licensed to treat patients, and this training is what gives them the ability to provide the most advanced and safest care. Here at Monroe Oral Maxillofacial & Implant Surgery, we want you to feel assured that you are receiving the best treatment available to you, and our highly skilled oral and maxillofacial surgeon relies on his years of training and experience to properly care for your surgical needs.
After completing four years of undergraduate college and four years of dental school, an oral and maxillofacial surgeon must then complete an additional four to six years of hospital-based residency training which may involve the completion of a medical degree. During this time, the surgeon completes various medical and surgical rotations, including anesthesiology; general and trauma surgery; general, emergency, and critical care medicine; plastic surgery; and ENT/head and neck surgery. This rigorous, extensive, and diverse training path provides the oral and maxillofacial surgeon with the experience to become the most qualified surgical specialist to comprehensively manage surgery of the oral cavity and maxillofacial region. This training goes far beyond what is required of other dental professionals.
Once they begin practicing, oral and maxillofacial surgeons possess the greatest expertise in certain procedures like wisdom teeth extractions and dental implant placement surgery. Additionally, oral and maxillofacial surgeons continue to broaden their scope of practice by completing advanced training and continuing education to learn about the latest advances in the field.
