Background Information

The office of Placer Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery is located in Roseville, California. Oral and Maxillofacial surgeons are the only dental specialists who, after completing dental school, are surgically trained in an accredited hospital for four or more years after dental school. This training is alongside medical residents and includes rotations and exposure to several medical specialty areas (internal medicine, general surgery, anesthesia, otolaryngology, plastic surgery and emergency medicine) The Oral and Maxillofacial surgeons training focuses on the hard (i.e. bone) and soft (i.e. skin, muscle and oral soft tissue) of the face, mouth, and jaws.
