Oral and Maxillofacial surgery requires four to six additional years of hospital-based surgical and anesthesia training after graduation from dental school. Drs. Herzog, Halkias and Papadimitriou, as oral and maxillofacial surgeons, manage a wide variety of problems relating to the mouth, teeth, and facial regions. Drs. Herzog, Halkias and Papadimitriou practice a full scope of oral and maxillofacial surgery with expertise ranging from dental implant surgery and wisdom tooth removal to corrective jaw surgery. This also includes techniques designed to rebuild bone structure with minimal surgical intervention and optimal patient comfort. Our doctors can also diagnose and treat facial injuries, and fractures.
Our staff is trained in assisting with Intravenous (IV) sedation and outpatient general anesthesia in our state-of-the-art office setting. Patients are continuously monitored during and after surgery.
The surgical assisting staff at Oral Surgery Associates are experienced and certified oral surgery surgical assistants. They are Basic Life Support certified and assist during the administration of IV anesthesia and our surgical procedures.
