Oral Surgery For Adults

What is Oral Surgery For Adults?

After receiving my undergraduate degree from the University of Utah, I attended dental school at the prestigious University of the Pacific School of Dentistry in San Francisco. I then went on to a formal 4 year Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Residency program at UCSF Fresno where I received the most rigorous surgical training available for dentists. In fact, there were no other residencies for head and neck services where I trained. So, I played the role of ENT, plastic surgeon, and oral surgeon for all emergency needs.
