Oral and Facial Surgery - Overview

A comfortable smile and lively eyes are part of a beautiful face and part of the options you have with UAB’s oral and facial surgeons. By blending precision skills with a gentle touch, we can help you put your best face forward.

At UAB’s Oral and Facial Surgery unit, a team of medical and dental experts work together to treat disorders of the mouth, teeth, jaws, and facial structures. Using UAB’s world-renowned multidisciplinary approach to medicine, care teams work with your current dentist or physician to develop comprehensive, state-of-the-art treatment solutions that meet your personal needs. As part of the UAB Health System, these teams also have the research and knowledge of more than 700 specialists in over 30 different fields of medicine at their disposal.

Oral and Facial Surgery is a surgical sub-specialty that is a blend of dentistry and medicine. Our surgeons have been trained in both medicine and dentistry, and therefore have a strong knowledge of both the functional and cosmetic aspects of the face. With this strong foundation our doctors are able to perform a wide variety of procedures, including wisdom teeth removal, dental implants, reconstructive jaw surgery, facial cosmetic surgery, and many others.
