This site has been compiled to give additional information about matters involving Surgical
Dentistry and Oral (& Maxillofacial) Surgery.
These days, with so much information on the Web, it behoves patients to research any
dental (or medical) matter before embarking on the treatment (the Prudent Patient). The
more information the patient is armed with, the better, as this allows a more, in-depth
discussion with your dentist / Oral Surgeon regarding your treatment options.
No responsibility can be accepted for any injury suffered as a direct or indirect result

the need for a site to pass this knowledge to our patients.
I have included on the site, websites and articles of relevance to the various topics
The articles are from well-recognised journals that are subject to peer-review.
The websites are often the websites of professional bodies such as dental associations,
dental councils etc.
