Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery
Oral and maxillofacial surgery is the specialty of dentistry that includes the diagnosis and treatment of diseases, injuries, and defects involving both the functional and esthetic aspects of the hard and soft tissues of the oral and maxillofacial region. The term “maxillofacial” refers to the anatomic area of the jaws and face.

An oral and maxillofacial residency provides extensive training in related medical and surgical disciplines:  such as general surgery, plastic surgery, internal medicine, critical care medicine, anesthesia, and pathology. Oral and maxillofacial surgeons are trained to treat patients in hospital settings, outpatient surgery centers, ambulatory surgery facilities, and private offices.

Board Certification
In order to become board certified, an individual must complete intensive application and examination processes. Applicants to the ABOMS (American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery) must provide verifiable evidence of their educational and training qualifications. Each application for board certification is reviewed by the ABOMS’ Credentials Committee. The process of board certification requires the candidate to pass both a thorough qualifying examination and a rigorous oral certifying examination.
