Oral and maxillofacial surgery requires completion of a residency program which provides hospital-based surgical and anesthesia training after graduation from dental school. As oral and maxillofacial surgeons, Dr. Steven R. Patty manages a wide variety of problems relating to the mouth, teeth and facial regions. Dr. Patty and Dr. Valiquette practice a full scope of oral and maxillofacial surgery with expertise ranging from removal of teeth to corrective jaw surgery. They can also diagnose and treat facial injuries, TMJ disorders, sleep apnea related to jaw structure and perform a full range of dental implant procedures.
