Patient Information

Background Information

Oral and maxillofacial surgery requires at least 4 to 6 years of hospital-based surgical and anesthesia training after graduation from dental school. As oral and maxillofacial surgeons, Dr. Kao, Dr. Stella, Dr. Warner or Dr. Williams manage a wide variety of problems relating to the mouth, teeth, face and neck regions. Drs. Kao, Stella, Warner or Williams practice the full scope of oral and maxillofacial surgery with expertise ranging from dental implant surgery and wisdom tooth removal to corrective jaw surgery and complex head & neck reconstruction. This also includes techniques designed to rebuild bone structure with minimal surgical intervention and optimal patient comfort. We can also diagnose and treat facial pain, facial injuries, fractures, facial skin cancer, and oral cancer.

Our staff is trained in assisting with Intravenous (IV) sedation in our state-of-the-art office setting. Patients are continuously monitored during and after surgery.
