Welcome to the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery
Oral and Maxillofacial surgeons are involved in the diagnosis and treatment of facial deformities, TMJ pain, sleep apnea and snoring, tumors and cancers of the head and neck area including oral cancer, plastic and reconstructive surgery, facial trauma and diseases of the oral cavity.
As one of the oldest, structured departments of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, we have a long and historical tradition of excellence. Since its inception in the 1930’s, the department has been a leader in Education, Clinical Care, Research, Administration and Community Service. We invite you to visit our website to see the various state-of-the-art clinical services we provide. You will find that we are heavily invested in our patients and students. We continually strive to strengthen our commitment to community outreach programs, develop new strategic partnerships, expand the clinical services and further improve our robust residency training program. At our primary practice locations at Boston Medical Center and Boston University School of Dental Medicine, we treat over 30,000 patients per year in the outpatient clinics and perform over 800 hospital operating room surgical procedures annually.
In conjunction with the mission of the Boston Medical Center, we are proud to offer exceptional care, without exception. As an academic practice affiliated with Boston University Goldman School of Dental Medicine, the faculty of the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery are intensely involved in the education of dental and medical students and post-graduate residents. We hold offices in prestigious national and international professional societies, conduct research studies, publish scientific articles in medical and dental journals and textbooks, and give invited lecture presentations, both nationally and internationally. In addition, a team of our doctors and assistants go to the Ukraine once or twice a year to train with Ukrainian Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons. Considering all of these activities, our patients can be assured that the care they receive in our offices and clinics is the most effective and contemporary, state-of-the-art treatment available.
We look forward to meeting you.
