Introduction to Oral Surgery

Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery requires four to five additional years of hospital-based surgical and anesthesia training after graduation from dental school. As a Board Certified Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon, Dr. Overbeck manages a wide variety of problems relating to the mouth, teeth and facial regions. Due to the increased specialization in the dental profession, Dr. Overbeck, although trained and experienced in the full scope of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, has focused her practice on the placement of dental implants, wisdom tooth removal, multiple and single tooth extraction and cases involving oral pathology. This also includes techniques designed to rebuild bone structure with minimal surgical intervention and optimal patient comfort.
