Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery

Goals and Objectives of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery

The goal of the oral and maxillofacial surgery program at the University at Buffalo is to train residents and students in the practice of oral and maxillofacial surgery.  This is accomplished through provision of University-based and hospital-based outpatient clinical experience, hospital-based inpatient care services and emergency servcies based on sound scientific principles and didactic instruction while contributing to new knowledge through research and advancing the profession by way of professional service.  Training and experience encompasses the areas of dentoalveolar surgery, maxillofacial trauma, maxillofacial pathology, orthognathic and reconstructive surgery and local anesthesia/sedation/general anesthesia. 

The department has 3 full-time faculty members, 5 part-time faculty members and several volunteer faculty members involved in student and resident education, research, patient care and School of Dental Medicine, University at Buffalo, hospital and community service including continuing education activities locally, at the state level, nationally and internationally.


The department has an active research program with multiple projects in both the basic science and clinical research realm.
