Pediatric Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery

The oral and maxillofacial surgeons with Norton Children’s treat conditions that affect the mouth, jaw and facial structures in children and teens.

Oral and maxillofacial surgery is a dentistry specialty focused on caring for conditions that affect the hard and soft tissues of the mouth, teeth and facial regions. Norton Children’s offers routine and specialized oral and maxillofacial care for children.

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

A child’s face has many important nerves and growing bones. A pediatric-trained oral and maxillofacial surgeon provides specialized care for children with congenital conditions or injuries.

Our oral and maxillofacial team consists of oral and maxillofacial specialists, including board-certified surgeons, radiologists, dentists and pathologists.

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 surgery.  In addition, the team partners with other subspecialists from Norton Children’s Hospital to provide care related to complex congenital conditions.

Collaboration with UofL School of Medicine for Your Child’s Care

Our providers offer highly skilled care for your child. Norton Children’s Hospital serves as the primary pediatric teaching facility for the University of Louisville School of Medicine. These doctors are professors and active researchers helping to advance medical care through clinical research and education.
