 The Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery offers specialized medical procedures for patients, collaborating closely with private practitioners and general hospitals.

 We provide safe and secure surgical procedures under the control of intravenous sedation, by monitoring medically compromised patients who have multiple systemic diseases such as cardiac disease, diabetic mellitus, hypertension, or are receiving dialysis treatment.

 For patients who will undergo organ transplantation, cardiac surgery, neurosurgical operation, and chemotherapy, we perform perioperative oral management.

 We have a very active inpatient service for severely ill or injured patients that require highly qualified procedures and admission to the hospital, i.e., those with swelling of the face, impacted tooth, jaw deformity, fractured upper and lower jaws, odontogenic tumor, or oral mucosal disease.

 If you have a high level of dental anxiety, you may need a treatment in a comfortable and relaxed state under intravenous sedation.

 For the progress of treatments and procedures, we conduct clinical research to feedback the outcome in clinical practices.
