The Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery offers a comprehensive service relating to conditions of the face, neck, mouth and jaws, including a routine assessment, diagnosis and treatment for common oral surgical conditions.

Our consultants treat a range of conditions, including facial injuries, head and neck cancers, salivary gland diseases, facial deformities, facial pain, impacted teeth, cysts and tumours of the jaws, as well as mouth ulcers and infections.

The specialty is unique, requiring a dual qualification in medicine and dentistry.

Oral and maxillofacial surgeons frequently work alongside other specialists including orthodontists, oncologists, neurosurgeons, plastic surgeons and ear, nose and throat (ENT) surgeons.
