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. Barrett and Dr. Higley manage a wide variety of problems relating to the mouth, teeth, and facial regions. Drs. Barrett and Higley 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. Our office can also diagnose and treat facial pain, facial injuries, and fractures.
Our staff is trained in assisting with Intravenous (IV) sedation and outpatient general anesthesia in our state-of-the-art office facility. Patients are continuously monitored before, during and after surgery.
The surgical staff at West Texas Oral Facial Surgery are experienced, certified oral and maxillofacial surgical assistants, who assist in the administration of IV sedation and surgery. We also have trained registered nurses (RN) to assist in surgery. All staff are informed administrative personnel, well versed in health and insurance policies, and are CPR certified.
