Department of


Division of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery

The University of Cincinnati division of oral and maxillofacial surgery is a center for evaluation, diagnosis, prevention and treatment of diseases, disorders and conditions of the oral cavity, maxillofacial area and the adjacent and associated structures.

Through UC Health, the division offers services that include correction of dental facial deformities, treatment of maxillofacial pathology as well as comprehensive care for maxillofacial trauma victims. The division’s practice at the UC Health Physicians Office in Clifton and UC Health Holmes Hospital treats patients with dental facial deformities, trauma, dental implant needs, reconstructive jaw surgery, temporomandibular joint surgery, impacted teeth, and head and neck tumors. Both locations contain surgical suites equipped with ambulatory anesthesia services and new digital imaging capabilities.

The Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery residency training program, which received its most recent full five-year accreditation in February of 2011, offers training in treatment for facial trauma, surgical reconstruction of skeletal deformities, pathology of the oral & maxillofacial regions, facial cosmetic surgery, dento-alveolar surgery and ambulatory anesthesia.

Research currently being conducted includes surgical outcomes in outpatient anesthesia, pediatric sedation, maxillofacial trauma, TMJ arthroscopy and long term outcomes in correction of dentofacial deformities.

The Division of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery has a long-standing commitment to the oral and maxillofacial surgery needs of the Cincinnati community. The Division donates approximately 2,000 hours to the community each year in terms of treating patients at low (uninsured) or no cost.
