Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery

The department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery provides elective and emergency services for the population of North Yorkshire. York is the base where all services are provided. Consultants and junior staff provide out-patient, day surgery care and initial acute management at Bridlington, Harrogate and Scarborough.

Oral and maxillofacial surgery is the surgical speciality concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of diseases affecting the mouth, jaws, face and neck. While a medical speciality, oral and maxillofacial surgery requires a dual qualification in medicine and dentistry.

The department manages patients with all oral and maxillofacial conditions with the exception of cleft lip and palate. This includes head and neck cancer, facial skin cancer, facial deformity, salivary gland diseases, facial trauma, dento-alveolar conditions (impacted teeth, cysts, oro-facial infections and tumours of the jaws), temporo-mandibular joint disorders and oral medical conditions.
