Some dental conditions require specialized treatment options, a surgical approach and specific expertise. Your family dentist may choose to work with an oral and maxillofacial surgeon like Dr. Robert Weinstein when you have been diagnosed with a dental condition that may require oral surgery.
An oral and maxillofacial surgeon (oral surgeon) is the dental profession's surgical specialist. Oral surgeons are trained to treat a variety of medical and dental conditions associated with the jaws and facial structures. An oral surgeon has a uniquely thorough understanding of the function and aesthetics of the jaw and facial relationship. Dr. Robert A. Weinstein is a Dallas oral surgeon who is committed to providing his patients with state of the art dental surgery and personalized, attentive patient care.
Training in the oral surgery specialty requires eight or more years of advanced training. Oral and maxillofacial surgeons complete four years of dental school following their undergraduate degree. Dental school is followed by four more years in a hospital-based surgical residency program such as the one Dr. Weinstein completed at Loyola University and Affiliated Hospitals. During the surgical residency, oral surgeons complete rotations in medical specialties including internal medicine, oral surgery, emergency medicine, general surgery, plastic surgery, otolaryngology and anesthesia.
One of the longest and most specialized rotations is in anesthesia. Since an oral surgeon is licensed to perform in-office general anesthesia, they are well trained in all aspects of this specialty. Dr. Weinstein is equipped to evaluate patients, deliver all forms of local and general anesthesia as well as monitor and manage patients before, during and after anesthesia. This intensive and highly specialized training and experience allows Dr. Weinstein to provide safe and effective anesthesia for control of pain and anxiety for his patients. With over 30 years' experience in oral and maxillofacial surgery, he is able to draw on the knowledge and expertise which comes with having treated many thousands of patients over the years.
