This content was provided by Dr. Luque "Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery requires up to six additional years of hospital based surgical and anesthesia training. Some oral surgeons additionally attend medical school to develop skills to handle the complex and delicate procedures associated with head and neck surgery.
As an Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeon as well as a Medical Doctor, Dr. Luque is uniquely qualified to treat a wide variety of problems relating to the mouth, teeth and facial regions.
Whether you are seeking elective surgery or require treatment for complex conditions of the head and face, we believe in a level of respect and compassion that is the basis of our reputation. Your surgical needs may not require the skills of a top specialist among oral surgeons. However we hope that our continual handling of complicated emergency trauma cases will give you reassurance that we can provide an extra level of capability and sensitivity in handling all oral surgeries."
