About Me

"As an oral and maxillofacial surgeon it is rewarding to build the foundation on which the general dentist can restore the patient to normal form and function; then completing the process with facial esthetic procedures."

Did not explain what he did after the treatment - especially what was not expected. Very poor social interaction.
