Oral and maxillofacial surgery requires additional years of hospital-based surgical and anesthesia training after graduation from dental school. As oral and maxillofacial surgeons, Dr. Naito, Dr. White and Dr. Bell manage a wide variety of problems relating to the mouth, teeth and facial regions. Drs. Naito, White and Bell 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. We can also diagnose and treat facial pain, facial injuries, and fractures.
Our staff is trained in assisting with intravenous (IV) sedation in our state-of-the-art office setting. Patients are continuously monitored during and after surgery.
The surgical staff at Okanagan Oral Surgery are experienced certified dental assistants who assist in surgery. We also have trained registered nurses (RN) for the administration of IV sedation. All staff are informed administrative personnel, well-versed in health and insurance policies, and are CPR certified.
