What is an Oral Surgeon?
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. Texas Wisdom's oral surgeons are committed to providing their 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. Wendling completed at University of Washington. 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.
