What Are Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons?

Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons are the surgical specialists of the dental profession. Their surgical expertise and thorough understanding of both aesthetics and function uniquely qualify them to diagnose, treat and manage the conditions, defects, injuries, and the aesthetic aspects of the mouth, teeth, jaws and face.

After four years of dental school, Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons complete four or more years of hospital-based surgical residency training. This intensive residency includes rotations through related medical fields including, internal medicine, general surgery, otolaryngology, plastic surgery, emergency medicine and anesthesiology.

The ability to provide patients with safe, effective outpatient anesthesia has distinguished the specialty of oral and maxillofacial surgery. As an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon, Dr. Schwartz is well trained in all aspects of anesthesia administration.
