About Oral/Maxillofacial Surgery

Oral and maxillofacial surgery is a specialty practice that requires four to six years of hospital-based surgical and anesthesia training after graduation from dental school. Dr. John additionally completed his  Medical Degree (MD). As an Oral/Maxillofacial surgeon, Dr. John manages a wide variety of problems relating to the mouth, teeth, and facial regions. Dr. John practices a full scope of oral and maxillofacial surgery with expertise ranging from dental implant surgery and wisdom tooth removal to facial trauma.

This also includes techniques designed to rebuild bone structure with minimal surgical intervention and optimal patient comfort. Our office can also diagnose and treat facial pain, facial injuries, and fractures.

Oral/Maxillofacial surgery is performed to treat diseases and defects involving both the functional and aesthetic aspects of the hard and soft tissues of the oral and maxillofacial region.

Dr. John provides the following services:

  • Oral implant expertise utilizing multiple types of dental implants for your maximum success

  • Bone Grafting for implant enhancement

  • Anesthesia is provided for your health and comfort

  • Evaluation and extraction of third molars (wisdom teeth) and other teeth.

  • Reconstructive procedures including jaw surgery, repair of jaw fractures and TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorders and oral pathology.

  • Pediatric care and emergency services are also available.


The I-Cat CT Scanner gives our oral and maxillofacial practice state-of-the-art technology to help Dr. John diagnose potential issues more accurately and provide treatment with unprecedented confidence. Unlike a traditional spiral CT scanner, this 3D system utilizes cone beam CT technology and provides precise, crystal-clear digital images while minimizing your exposure to radiation. Our new 3D system enables us to perform a wider range of diagnoses and treatments in our office, helping to reduce multiple visits.

The CT Scanner allows us to choose the field of view, or scanning area, that best suits your specific treatment needs. This helps to limit your radiation exposure because we are focusing specifically on your area of concern.

In addition, we also use additional latest software that enables Dr. John to plan implant placement.

Dr. John can use this innovative technology to quickly and easily share 3D images of the area of concern with your referring doctor – allowing the doctors to collaborate on your care, improving your experience, and delivering a positive treatment outcome.
