Patient Information

Background Information

     Dr. Moskal is an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon who is the only recognized dental specialist who, after completing dental school, has been surgically trained in a hospital based residency program for a minimum of four years.  He trained alongside medical residents in internal medicine, general surgery, and anesthesiology, and also spent time in otolaryngology, plastic surgery, trauma surgery and other specialty areas. His training focused almost exclusively on the hard (ie. bone) and soft (ie. skin, muscle) tissue of the face, mouth and jaws. His knowledge and surgical expertise uniquely qualify him to diagnose and treat the functional and aesthetic conditions in this anatomical area. The scope of our Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery practice includes, among others:

Wisdom Teeth / 3rd Molar Extractions

Outpatient Anesthesia options

Dental Implants

Bone and Soft Tissue Grafting

Exposures of impacted teeth 

Surgery to manage diseases of the teeth and their supporting soft and hard tissues

Surgical Correction of Maxillofacial Skeletal Deformities

Facial Trauma Surgery

Pathologic Conditions, such as benign tumors and cysts

Facial Reconstructive Surgery

Laughing gas (nitrous oxide)

         Dr. Moskal manages a wide variety of problems relating to the mouth, teeth and facial regions. He has expertise ranging from dental implant surgery and wisdom tooth removal to management of infections and reconstructive jaw surgery. This also includes techniques designed to rebuild bone structure with minimal surgical intervention and optimal patient comfort. He can also diagnose and treat facial pain, injuries, and fractures. He has also had extensive training and experience with Anesthesia and Pain Management. Dr. Moskal will help you decide which anesthetic would be best for you; from local anesthesia (Novocaine), Nitrous Oxide (laughing gas), Oral Sedation, to Intravenous (IV) sedation or Deep Sedation/General Anesthesia.  Everyone should feel comfortable knowing that there are anesthetic options and that almost all procedures can be performed comfortably and while asleep. 

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.
