The Program in Oral Surgery is a program within the Department of Surgical Sciences and is housed in the Surgical Services Clinic on the first floor at the School of Dentistry. The clinic is shared with the programs in Periodontics, Oral Surgery and Oral Pathology.

Overview of patient care and services

The goal of this clinic is to maximize the efficiency and the quality of patient care while still providing students with a meaningful surgical rotation experience. The graduate dentist, or the undergraduate student refers all patients to the surgery clinic for evaluation and treatment.

Patient care activities in the surgical clinic involve both students and faculty, depending on the complexity of the case.

  • Routine surgical procedures, e.g. exodontias (tooth removal), are performed by the 4th year students, (and occasionally 3rd year students), with the 3rd year ( and occasionally 1st and 2nd year students) assisting.

  • Surgical faculty, assisted by the surgical support staff and students, carry out complex exodontia (tooth removal), implant surgery, sedation, and hard/soft tissue grafting including periodontal plastic surgery.

Hours of operation

The Clinic operates year round from 8:00 a.m.–12:00 p.m. and 1:00 p.m.– 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.
