Oral and maxillofacial surgery requires additional years of hospital-based surgical and anesthesia training after graduation from dental school. Some oral and maxillofacial surgery residency programs require their residents to attend medical school, obtain a Medical Degree, and complete a year of General Surgery training. Dr Hunter completed this type of program. As an oral and maxillofacial surgeon, Dr. Hunter manages a wide variety of problems relating to the mouth, teeth and facial regions. A primary focus of Dr. Hunter’s practice is the placement of dental implants and the treatment of impacted teeth. Dr. Hunter uses current technology to diagnose and place dental implants to restore those with missing teeth to full oral function. He uses in-office digital CT Scanning to be more precise with his surgical technique. He also uses techniques to rebuild bone structure with minimal surgical intervention and optimal patient comfort. Dr. Hunter can also diagnose and treat facial pain, facial injuries, and fractures.
