Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery requires a minimum of four additional years of hospital-based surgical and anesthesia training after graduation from dental school, and treats a wide variety of problems relating to the mouth, teeth and facial region. As a dual-degree Oral and Maxillofacial surgeon, Dr. Sidal practices a full scope of oral and maxillofacial surgery with expertise ranging from dental implant placement and wisdom tooth removal to orofacial pain, facial injuries, and corrective jaw surgery. This also includes procedures designed to rebuild bone structure with minimal surgical intervention and optimal patient comfort. Dr. Sidal is on the Medical Staff of Scripps Memorial Hospital in La Jolla, and performs select outpatient and inpatient surgeries there.
All of our staff abide by our philosophy of patient centered care. We strive to provide the best possible, stress free experience at our office.
Our surgical staff at Torrey Pines Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery are experienced, certified oral and maxillofacial surgery assistants, who assist with anesthesia and surgery. Our patients are continuously monitored during and after surgery in our state of the art office setting. Dr. Sidal is licensed by the State of California to administer General Anesthesia and IV Sedation in our office. He is also certified in Advanced Cardiac Life Support and as a Basic Life Support Instructor.
We also have a trained dental implant coordinator who assists in surgery and coordinates the myriad of aspects of dental implant surgery with the patient, the patient’s restorative dentist and our office. All staff are informed administrative personnel, well-versed in health and insurance policies, and are CPR certified.
Our practice has grown because of our patients’ kind referrals. We encourage you to recommend our office to your family and friends. We always have time to care for a new patient.
If you have been referred by your dentist, he or she will promptly receive a letter outlining our findings and the course of treatment. We encourage you to return to your dentist after our specialized care is complete.
