Setting the Standard for Research & Education

As an academic-based institution, education and research are paramount to our success and our residency program is the second-oldest training program for oral and maxillofacial surgeons in the country. Our surgeons are involved in groundbreaking research that contributes to the science of oral and maxillofacial surgery. We’ve set standards in outpatient care for facial trauma, and landmark findings in the use of anesthesia in an outpatient setting with patients who are obese. Currently, we’re studying the use of pre-emptive pain relief. This research could affect oral and maxillofacial surgical practices around the world.
