Biography

Dr. Paul Wilkinson always knew he wanted to pursue a career in medicine, but he also knew he wanted to explore various specialties before committing to a particular area of medicine. His exploration of various fields began when he decided to follow in the footsteps of his aunt—an anesthesiologist—and volunteer at the children's hospital. While there, Dr. Wilkinson observed a range of different specialties, but he ultimately connected the most with oral surgeons. During his volunteering experience, he learned from the oral surgeons about what they do and how their field combined his two interests—anesthesia and surgery. From there, pursuing a career in oral and maxillofacial surgery was a no-brainer. Dr. Wilkinson has been practicing oral and maxillofacial surgery since 2010, and he joined Dr. Graves—his friend since dental school—at Amarillo Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery in 2011. The most rewarding part of Dr. Wilkinson's job is making people happy. Dr. Wilkinson often sees patients who have suffered for a long time; when he can identify and solve their oral health problems, he gets the most satisfaction from seeing their happiness and gratitude.

in Vega, TX |
I had my wisdom teeth taken out by him yesterday and he put me under quick and painless and the surgery only took 30 min (felt like 5) and i have had virtually no pain coming from my jaw and I have almost no swelling, like basically zero! One of the best/smoothest/easiest medical experiences I have ever gone through
