Oral, Maxillofacial and Reconstructive Surgery focuses on a broad spectrum of problems involving the teeth, jaws, mouth and facial bones. What is so unique about this surgical specialty that involves both dental and medical education is the ability to manage both functional and aesthetic problems to improve the overall quality of life. The challenges of modern health care have dramatically changed how surgeons manage their patients. Our surgical practice has responded by placing a strong emphasis on in-office surgery, management of surgical problems and a patient-oriented philosophy that considers the whole person as a patient.
We invite you to visit with Dr. Lee and his staff for an initial consultation and evaluation to determine the ideal course of treatment. We will individualize your treatment plan to help meet your needs and personal expectations.
What is Oral, Maxillofacial and Reconstructive Surgery?
Oral, Maxillofacial and Reconstructive Surgery involves the diagnosis and surgical (invasive and non-invasive) management of diseases, soft and hard tissue defects, injuries, and deformities involving the mouth, jaws, teeth and facial bones. But, specialized treatment also involves management of the effects of aging on the skin of the face.
It integrates the disciplines of Dentistry and Medicine to optimize medical management with surgical skill. The education is extremely rigorous. After four years of college and another six or more years of dental and medical school, the doctor must complete an intensive, postdoctoral hospital-based surgical residency. Graduate Medical Evaluation involves a significant amount of time rotating through hospital services such as Internal Medicine, General Surgery, Plastic Surgery, Head and Neck Surgery, Neurosurgery, Trauma Surgery, the Emergency Room, Pediatrics, Psychiatry, Anesthesia and Radiology.
Dr. Lee is skilled and uniquely qualified to manage and treat various surgical conditions that involves both the functional and aesthetic aspects of the oral and maxillofacial region. The concentration of Dr. Lee’s surgical practice includes extraction of teeth, especially third molars (wisdom teeth); placement of dental implants in the jaws to support the teeth; bone grafting of the jaws and maxillary sinuses; corrective and reconstructive surgery of the jaws; infections of the oral and maxillofacial region and non-surgical facial rejuvenation procedures of the face to delay the effects of aging.
In Hawaii, Dr. Lee is considered a leader in implant therapy and is one of the most experienced dental implant and jaw reconstructive surgeons in Hawaii.
