Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons

Our physicians are oral and maxillofacial surgeons who specialize in all aspects of oral and facial surgery. They are board certified by the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery (ABOMS) and have received academic achievements, including scholastic honors and multiple scientific research awards. They also have dental and medical degrees.

Wisdom Teeth Doctors Utah | Our Oral Surgery Team

Our doctors practice the expanded scope of maxillofacial surgery, including the removal of wisdom teeth, the placement of dental implants, corrective jaw surgery, surgical treatment of snoring and sleep apnea, removal of pathology, orthognathic (jaw) surgery, facial trauma, reconstructive surgery, and facial cosmetic surgery. All our doctors maintain staff privileges to perform these procedures at various hospitals.

Why choose an oral and facial surgeon for your wisdom tooth removal?

Oral surgeons complete six years of additional training that are not required of a general dentist! Your dental provider may tell you that they’ve removed thousands of wisdom teeth, but it does not mean they have the same level of expertise as an OMS.

In addition to their surgical and dental training, every surgeon in our practice has earned a medical degree. This allows our team to go above and beyond the general practitioner’s scope of practice in order to

    • Provide expert-level anesthesia administration and monitoring during surgery
    • Handle surgical complications that arise during wisdom teeth removal
    • Understand how to properly respond in emergency situations

Comparing your general dentist to an oral surgeon is similar to comparing your general practitioner to a neurologist or cardiologist for brain or heart surgery.

Any time that you are undergoing a surgery that requires IV sedation or anesthesia, you should ALWAYS have the surgery completed at an accredited surgery center. This ensures the safest outcome possible for your treatment.

Our surgery center is accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Healthcare. This is an additional certification that we have earned to ensure that every patient receives the care they deserve. Choosing an accredited outpatient surgical facility ensures that you receive treatment in a hospital-like environment with the personnel and equipment necessary in the rare event of an emergency.
