Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery campaign

It is time! After 45 years, it is now time for us to embark on a major initiative to renovate and update the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Clinic in Moos Tower.

Our current 1970’s era clinic has provided care for thousands of patients and is the site for training dental students and residents in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. The surgical and anesthesia advancements in our specialty has seen major improvements in both office based surgical facilities and technology. The current clinic has not advanced accordingly. Our goal is to renovate and update our clinic to reflect the current standards of care and safety in the community.

The renovation will play a key role in our ability to recruit and retain faculty. In addition, a clinic that reflects the current surgical environment will have an important role in attracting outstanding applicants to our residency program.  The clinic will also provide state of the art continuing education facilities for oral surgeons and dentists from the state and region.

 “We look forward to a surgical facility that meets the educational and clinical needs of the Division of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery for today and the future. We are very excited to update our current facility, one that was built for the 1970’s.” – Dr. Gary Anderson, Dean
