Oral surgeons are educated and trained in oral and maxillofacial dentistry. Oral and maxillofacial surgeons are the only type of surgeon, other than anesthesiologists, who can offer all levels of sedation up to general anesthesia. If you live in Johnsburg, Illinois or the surrounding area and are looking for an oral surgeon, we’d like to serve you.
