Teaching Faculty

The oral and maxillofacial surgery attending staff consists of five full-time faculty and 10 private practitioners who serve as part-time attendings. Each faculty member brings to the program and resident experience special interests and training diversity. The full-time faculty do not participate in private practices outside of the University and as such are steadfastly committed to the residency program. One faculty member is a past member and co-chairman of the ABOMS examination committee.
