“It feels really great to be recognized for my hard work. This makes me want to strive even harder. Receiving this award makes me think that, once I start my career, I also want to give back to help students succeed.”

Welcome to the Department of Oral-Maxillofacial Surgery at the University of Maryland. This department, primarily affiliated with both the School of Dentistry and the University of Maryland Medical Center/R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center, has been active since the 1930s. Since that time we have graduated a great number of residents and fellows who have gone on to illustrious careers in both academics and private practice.
