Mission Statement: "To train citizen surgeons"                                        OMFS Chair

Welcome to the Department of Oral-Maxillofacial Surgery website at the University of Maryland. The department is affiliated with the School of Dentistry and the University of Maryland Medical Center/R. Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center has been active since the 1930s. Over the years, we have graduated many residents and fellows who have gone on to illustrious careers in academics and private practice.

This program, through its robust full-time and part-time OMS faculty, trains surgeons in the contemporary scope of oral-maxillofacial surgery to include implants, office anesthesia, dentoalveolar surgery, head and neck pathology, hard and soft tissue facial reconstruction, cleft-craniofacial surgery, TMJ surgery, CMF trauma, facial aesthetic surgery, and corrective jaw surgery.

We offer two residency training programs (one four-year and two six-year positions), several one-year internship positions, and a fellowship in maxillofacial oncology and microvascular reconstruction. The residency and the fellowship are fully accredited by the Commission on Dental Accreditation.

Maryland offers a sampling of all the eastern United States has to offer, with easy access to the entire east coast corridor. Residents are close to the Chesapeake Bay, the Atlantic Coast, the Appalachian Mountains, and the Nation’s Capital.

Thank you for your interest in our program, and please feel free to contact us for any additional information.

Yours sincerely,

Gary Warburton., DDS, MD, FACS
