What is an oral maxillofacial surgeon?

This kind of dentist has advanced training in reconstructive and implant dentistry. Dr. Dillard and Dr. Phillips also use a wide range of anesthesia and imaging techniques in their Charleston, SC, practice.

Their services involve remaking both acquired and congenital defects of the face, teeth, jaw, neck, and more. Their patients range in age from infants to senior adults and everything in between.

In fact, Dr. Dillard is well-respected for his innovations in cleft palate repair. He pioneered techniques in using the patient's own deformed and misplaced oral tissues to produce functional and attractive results.
