Maxillofacial Surgery

Maxillofacial Surgery

Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery is a highly specialized field within the realm of medicine, boasting a relatively smaller number of Consultants compared to other medical disciplines. We take immense pleasure in extending our Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery services at Clarendon Health, located in Poole, Dorset.

The intricacy of various Oral and Maxillofacial surgical procedures typically necessitates a referral from your GP, dentist, a consultant in another specialty like ENT or Dermatology, or a maxillofacial specialist from beyond our region.

While many treatments can be conveniently administered on-site at Clarendon Health, exceptionally intricate surgeries may occasionally be conducted at an external facility. Rest assured, if such a circumstance arises, we will provide you with a comprehensive explanation. Furthermore, your Consultant will continue to be the healthcare professional responsible for delivering your treatment.
