Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Clinic
At the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery (OMFS) Clinic your care is provided by dental students or highly skilled residents and is always overseen by faculty specialists, who are all leaders in the field. Your participation in this invaluable learning process means that appointments may take longer, but we are able to offer exceptional services at significantly lower rates than private practices.
If you are a patient seeking care in our teaching clinic, please call (617) 636-6516 to schedule an appointment. All patients require an initial consultation and x-rays if needed.
OMFS procedures are often complicated and may be billed through dental and/or medical insurance. Please call us to verify your insurance. All additional billing and insurance questions will be answered after the initial consultation. The OMFS Teaching Clinic accepts the following dental insurances: Delta Dental, MassHealth, Blue Cross Blue Shield and Cigna, but it does not accept medical insurance.
If your case requires medical insurance, consider an OMFS Faculty Provider and call (617) 636-6515.
Referring doctors are encouraged to call us at (617) 636-6516 to refer a patient to the OMFS Teaching Clinic. For more complex cases please consider referring to our Faculty Practice by calling (617) 636-6515.
