A Greeting from the Professor

Our department deals with a variety of oral diseases such as tumor, cyst, anomaly, deformity, trauma, temporomandibular disorder, periodontitis, and dental caries. In order to maintain or reconstruct oral function, we have made an effort to improve surgical methods for these diseases, based on basic science research on them. An oral and maxillofacial surgeon is a dental specialist who treats these diseases. Following dental school, an oral and maxillofacial surgeon completes several additional years of training in a hospital residency program and is trained to administer and monitor all types of anesthesia needed for oral surgery procedures.
