Patient Information

Background Information

Oral and maxillofacial surgery requires additional years of hospital-based surgical and anesthesia training after graduation from dental school. As an oral and maxillofacial surgeon, Dr. Fagin manages a wide variety of problems relating to the mouth, teeth, and facial regions including removal of wisdom teeth, dental implant surgery, treatment of oral pathology, and children’s oral surgery. This also includes techniques designed to rebuild bone structure with minimal surgical intervention and optimal patient comfort. Our office can also diagnose and treat facial pain, facial injuries, and fractures.

Our staff is trained in assisting with Intravenous (IV) sedation and outpatient general anesthesia in our state-of-the-art office setting. Patients are continuously monitored during and after surgery. We also provide General Anesthesia with Dr. Michael Lam, a Board Certified Anesthesiologist, for our younger children or more complex cases.
