Oral and maxillofacial surgery (OMFS or OMS) is a specialty of dentistry that requires four to six additional years of hospital-based surgical and anesthesia training after graduation from dental school. As oral and maxillofacial surgeons, Dr. Galey, Dr. Kreps, Dr. Roccia or Dr. Tunder manage a wide variety of problems relating to the mouth, teeth, jaws and facial regions. Drs. Galey, Kreps, Roccia or Tunder practice a full scope of oral and maxillofacial surgery with expertise ranging from dental implant surgery and wisdom tooth removal to corrective jaw surgery. This also includes techniques designed to rebuild bone structure with minimal surgical intervention and optimal patient comfort. We can also diagnose and treat facial pain, facial injuries, and fractures.
The surgical staff at North Pittsburgh Oral Surgery is made up of experienced oral and maxillofacial surgical assistants, who assist in all aspects of surgery. Each surgical assistant is certified in basic life support (BLS), cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), automated external defibrillator use (AED) and maxillofacial radiology. We also have a registered nurse (RN) to assist in surgery. All staff members are informed healthcare personnel, eager to make your surgical experience as comfortable and safe as possible.
Our staff is trained in assisting with Intravenous (IV) sedation in our state-of-the-art office setting and implant center. Patients are continuously monitored during and after surgery.
