Why Should Your Child See a Pediatric Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon?

Multidisciplinary Care for Your Child

Our oral and maxillofacial surgeons work with pediatric anesthesiologists to ensure that each child receives a safe experience during a complex suregery.  In addition, the team partners with other subspecialists from Norton Children’s Hospital to provide care related to complex congenital conditions.
