Oral and maxillofacial surgery requires four to six additional years of hospital-based surgical and anesthesia training after graduation from dental school. As oral and maxillofacial surgeons, Dr. Troy Petersen, Dr. Marcus Tanabe, and Dr. Rudy Schneider manage a wide variety of problems relating to the mouth, teeth, and facial regions. All three are Board Certified by the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery.

Our doctors practice a 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. We can also diagnose and treat facial pain, facial injuries, and fractures.
