ABOUT THE CENTER FOR ORAL & FACIAL SURGERY
Our practice was established in 1927 and is the oldest and largest in San Diego County with two convenient locations. The Center for Oral & Facial Surgery is made up of exceptional people who are committed to working in the field of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. We are motivated to achieve the highest standards of quality care. ‘To serve our patients with integrity and deliver the highest quality of professional care in a soothing and comfortable environment’ is more than our mission statement; it is the philosophy behind everything we do.
Oral and maxillofacial surgery requires additional years of hospital’based surgical and anesthesia training after graduation from dental school. As oral and maxillofacial surgeons, Dr.’s Eckstein, Oleksy, Gile, and Havas manage a wide variety of problems relating to the mouth, teeth and facial regions. We practice a full scope of oral and maxillofacial surgery procedures 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 minimal surgical intervention and optimal patient comfort. We can also diagnose and treat facial pain, facial injuries, and fractures.
Our staff is trained in assisting with Intravenous (IV) sedation or outpatient general anesthesia in our state’of’the’art office setting. Patients are continuously monitored during and after surgery.
