Dentistry and Oral Surgery

UT Southwestern Medical Center’s dentistry and oral surgery service has a long-standing reputation for excellence in general and specialized care. Our mission is to improve the oral, maxillofacial, dental, and craniofacial health of patients through research, service, and education.

UT Southwestern’s progressive approach to dentistry and oral surgery combines time-honored techniques with cutting-edge technologies. Our team works diligently to keep your best interests in mind, whether you are seeking to restore or improve oral function, appearance, or health.

We have experience treating the spectrum of oral conditions, including accident victims with facial injuries, patients requiring reconstructive and dental implant surgery, and patients with tumors and cysts of the jaws. Our expertise also includes orthodontics, prosthodontics, and general dental care.

Other areas of expertise include:

  • Bone grafting to rebuild jaws
  • Correction of bite problems
  • Cosmetic facial reconstruction (rhinoplasty, facelift, etc.)
  • Extraction of erupted and impacted teeth (with or without general anesthesia)
  • Facial implants to hold facial prostheses (nose, ear, eye)

UT Southwestern’s comprehensive medical resources enable patients to have an initial consultation, testing, follow-up visits, and any needed medical procedures all in one location.
