Oral and maxillofacial surgery requires 4 to 6 additional years of hospital-based surgical and anesthesia training after graduation from dental school. Dr. Sadek, Dr. Paulo and Dr. Paterson, as oral and maxillofacial surgeons, manage a wide variety of problems relating to the mouth, teeth, and facial regions. All of the surgeons practice the full scope of oral and maxillofacial surgery with expertise ranging from dental implant surgery and wisdom tooth removal to corrective jaw surgery. This also includes techniques designed to rebuild bone structure with minimal surgical intervention and optimal patient comfort. Our doctors can also diagnose and treat facial pain, facial injuries, and fractures.
Our staff is trained in assisting with Intravenous (IV) sedation and outpatient general anesthesia in the office setting. Patients are continuously monitored during and after surgery.
The surgical staff assisting the surgeons at Southwestern Oral & Maxillofacial Surgical Centres are comprised of certified dental assistants (CDA Level I and II) and registered nurses (RN). As a team, they assist with the surgical procedures and in the delivery of anesthesia or sedation. The administrative personnel are well versed in health and insurance policies. The oral surgeons and nurses (RN) are licensed in CPR, ACLS and PALS.
