Faculty & Resident Clinic
Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Faculty and Resident Clinic is a referral clinic and should receive those referrals by fax to the attention of the Receptionist.
The Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Faculty and Resident Clinic is located on the first floor of the College of Dentistry at the west entrance of the UF Health Science Center. An appointment for a consultation/evaluation with a faculty member or resident may be obtained after a referral has been made for you. The clinic is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment for a diagnosis and outpatient treatment, using local anesthesia, conscious sedation or general anesthesia. Complex cases may require surgical treatment in the operating room at UF Health Shands Hospital. Our office staff is very experienced and attentive to the needs of our patients.
