The Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery resident clinic has surgery residents in specialty training who perform dental extractions (including impacted wisdom teeth), dental implants, pre-prosthetic dentoalveolar surgery (alveoloplasty), and biopsies. Under the tutelage of oral and maxillofacial surgery faculty members, our residents also perform trauma surgery, repair of craniofacial anomalies, and treatment of temporomandibular disorders.
Appointments cancelled with less than 48 business hours' notice are considered broken appointments.
For consultations, a patient may be dismissed from the care of the Division of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery after two broken appointments. For surgery appointments, a patient may be dismissed from the care of the Division of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery after one broken appointment. Should you need to cancel or reschedule an appointment, please contact us as early as possible.
A Note on Consultations and Referrals
The Division accepts new patients on a case by case basis based on the availability of our limited resources. At times, our resident clinic may not be accepting new patients from referral sources outside the College of Dentistry. The resident clinic always accepts patients for surgical services who are current patients of the College of Dentistry (have had a comprehensive or periodic examination within 24 months by a resident or dental student). The Division reserves the right to dictate resident-level or faculty-level care based on these resources and the surgical complexity of the case.
As specialists, we require a written referral for all services. We also require a consultation prior to surgery. In all cases, your first appointment with us will not be for surgical services. This enables our practitioners to meet you, perform an examination, discuss treatment and anesthetic options with you, and present you with a comprehensive treatment plan including an estimate of your financial liability.
