Welcome to the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery

Welcome to the Department of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery at Boston Medical Center. The department consists of two distinct divisons: a) Division of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, and, b) Division of Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology.

Oral and maxillofacial surgery is the specialty of dentistry, which includes the diagnosis, surgical and adjunctive treatment of diseases, injuries and defects involving both the functional and esthetic aspects of the hard and soft tissues of the oral and maxillofacial region.

Oral and maxillofacial pathology is the specialty of dentistry and pathology that deals with the nature, identification, and management of diseases affecting the oral and maxillofacial regions. It is a science that investigates the causes, processes, and effects of these diseases. The practice of oral pathology includes research, diagnosis of diseases using clinical, radiographic, microscopic, biochemical, or other examinations, and management of patients.

We are delighted that you have shown interest in our department in this exciting era of surgical education, clinical care and groundbreaking research at our institution. As one of the oldest, structured departments of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, we have a long and historical tradition of excellence. Since its inception in the early 1900’s at Boston City Hospital, the department has been a leader in Education, Clinical Care, Research, Administration and Community Service.

We invite you to browse through our departmental website to see the various state-of-the-art clinical services we provide. You will find that we are heavily invested in our patients. We continually strive to strengthen our commitment to community outreach programs, develop new strategic partnerships and expand the clinical services. In conjunction with the mission of the Boston Medical Center, we are proud to offer exceptional care, without exception.
