Patient Information

Background Information

Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery (OMS) requires a minimum of four additional years of hospital-based surgical and anesthesia training after graduation from dental school. Dr. Conforti, Dr. Johnson, Dr. Salomon and Dr. Heifetz-Li, as oral and maxillofacial surgeons, manage a wide variety of problems relating to the mouth, teeth, and face. Drs. Conforti, Johnson, Salomon and Heifetz-Li practice a full scope of oral and maxillofacial surgery with expertise ranging from dental implant surgery and wisdom tooth removal to corrective jaw surgery. This also includes techniques designed to rebuild bone structure with minimally invasive techniques and optimal patient comfort. Our doctors also diagnose and treat facial injuries, and fractures.


Our doctors are extensively trained in administering Intravenous (IV) sedation and outpatient general anesthesia in our state-of-the-art office settings. Patients are continuously monitored during and after surgery.
