Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery at Boston Medical Center consists of two distinct divisions: Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology.

Oral and maxillofacial surgery is the specialty of dentistry, which includes the diagnosis, surgical, and adjunctive treatment (accessory treatment used in combination to enhance primary treatment) of diseases, injuries, and defects involving both the functional and visual 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.

In addition to being involved in the diagnosis and treatment of congenital and acquired facial deformities, TMJ disorders, sleep apnea and snoring, facial reconstructive surgery, maxillofacial trauma, and pathological diseases of the oral cavity and facial regions, the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery also offers micro-neurosurgery, cosmetic, and cancer surgery with microvascular reconstruction capability.
