Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery is a specialty of dentistry that requires four to six additional years of hospital-based surgical and anesthesia training after graduation from dental school. As oral and maxillofacial surgeons, our doctors manage a wide variety of problems relating to the mouth, teeth and facial regions. Each of the doctors practices a full scope of oral and maxillofacial surgery with expertise ranging from office anesthesia, dental implant surgery and wisdom tooth removal to corrective jaw surgery. This includes techniques designed to rebuild facial bone structures with minimal surgical intervention and optimal patient comfort. We also diagnose and treat facial pain, facial injuries, fractures and diseases of the mouth. Hampton Roads Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery is a multiple doctor, multiple office, specialty practice that was founded by Dr. Ronald L. Tankersley in 1971.
