Oral and maxillofacial surgery

what is an oral and maxillofacial surgeon

Oral and maxillofacial surgeons require additional years of hospital-based surgical and anesthesia training after graduation from dental school.  Dr. Lee and Dr. DeFelice, as oral surgeons, manage a wide variety of problems relating to the mouth, teeth, and facial regions.  Our doctors practice the full scope of oral and maxillofacial surgery with expertise ranging from dental implant surgery and wisdom tooth removal to facial trauma.  This also includes techniques designed to rebuild bone structure with minimal surgical intervention and optimal patient comfort.  Our doctors can also diagnose and treat oral & skin pathology, facial injuries and a frenectomy. 

Our staff is trained in assisting with IV sedation and outpatient general anesthesia in our state-of-the-art office setting.  Patients are continuously monitored during and after surgery.  We also have a trained registered nurse (RN) to assist in surgery.  All staff are informed administrative persons, well versed in health and insurance policies, and are CPR certified.
