For Physician Referrals to Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery
How to Refer Patients
The Department of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery understands the importance of the bond between a referring physician and his/her patient. If your patient is referred to one of our clinics for care, it is our promise that each step of treatment will be communicated to you and the patient will be returned to your care just as soon as is appropriate. Providing the best possible care for all patients is our first priority.
