Oral and maxillofacial surgery requires additional years of hospital-based surgical and anesthesia training after graduation from dental school. As an oral and maxillofacial surgeon, Dr. Rothman, Dr. McKay & Dr. Smalley manage a wide variety of problems relating to the mouth, teeth and facial regions. Drs. Rothman, McKay & Smalley practice a full scope of oral and maxillofacial surgery 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. They can also diagnose and treat facial pain, facial injuries, and fractures.
The staff of Drs. Rothman, McKay & Smalley are fully trained in assisting with I.V. sedation and general anesthesia. Patients are constantly cared for and monitored within this state of the art office setting.
The surgical staff at Alabama Oral & Facial Surgery are experienced, BLS certified oral and facial surgical assistants, who assist in administration of IV sedation and surgery. We also have a trained registered nurse (RN) to assist in surgery. All staff are informed administrative personnel, well-versed in health and insurance policies, and are CPR certified.
