Prioritizing Our Patients' Health & Safety 

Dear patients,

We hope this letter finds you and your family in good health. Our community has been through a lot over the last few months, and all of us are looking forward to resuming our normal habits and routines. While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your safety.
 
Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice and you may have seen this during your visits to our office. Our infection control processes are made so that when you receive care, it’s both safe and comfortable. We want to tell you about the infection control procedures we follow in our practice to keep patients and staff safe.
 
Our office follows infection control recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). We follow the activities of these agencies so that we are up-to-date on any new rulings or guidance that may be issued. We do this to make sure that our infection control procedures are current and adhere to each agencies’ recommendations.
 
You may see some changes when it is time for your next appointment. We made these changes to help protect our patients and staff. For example:
 
• If you are sick or concerned you might be sick, please cancel your appointment. You will not be penalized in any way for the cancellation, even at the last minute.
 
• Our office will communicate with you beforehand to ask some screening questions. When you get to the office, you are asked to remain in your car and call our office number 972-412-5064. A staff member will come out to you and you will be asked those same screening questions again and have your temperature taken before entering the office.
 
• If you are a new patient, we would really appreciate you using the online patient portal to fill out paperwork prior to your appointment.
 
• We will ask you to immediately wash your hands with soap and water when you enter the office.
 
• You may see that our waiting room will no longer offer magazines, children’s toys and so forth, since those items are difficult to clean and disinfect. There will also be very few chairs present to avoid crowds in the waiting room. Computers will have disposable covers and counter tops, door handles, waiting room chairs and surfaces will be disinfected with increased frequency.
 
• Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients. That might mean that you’re offered fewer options for scheduling your appointment. We will also ask that only the patient, and in necessary cases a legal guardian, enter the office. Older children and adults are requested to experience their appointments alone while family members remain in the car and/or waiting room.
 
• We will do our best to allow greater time between patients to reduce waiting times for you, as well as to reduce the number of patients in the reception area at any one time.
 
We look forward to seeing you again and are happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we take to keep you, and every patient, safe in our practice. To make an appointment, please call our office at 972-412-5064 or visit our website at www.mymouthdental.com.  
 
Thank you for being our patient. We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to welcoming back our patients, neighbors and friends.
 
Sincerely,
Dr. Ramsey, Dr. Montoya and Team

Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery

An oral and maxillofacial surgeon (OMS) focuses on treating diseases, injuries, and defects in the head, neck, face, jaw, and mouth.

OMS specialists are surgically trained in hospital residency programs, so they have unparalleled experience in a number of conditions.

When do I need to see an oral and maxillofacial specialist?

Superior Surgical Skill for Safe, Precise Treatment

Advanced Surgical Training

Most oral surgeons undergo about four to six years of additional training in comparison to a general dentist. This includes participating in a medical residency program. As such, they are extensively knowledgeable in a broad range of conditions and are equipped with advanced surgical skills to address these issues.

Unparalleled Precision

Due to their extensive training, oral surgeons know the best techniques to not only ensure an optimal outcome but also minimize your risk of complications. Their surgical skill affords them the ability to make informed decisions when planning and performing your treatment for incredibly safe, high-quality care. For these reasons, dentists will typically refer patients to an oral surgeon for complex procedures.

Reconstructive & Cosmetic Capabilities

These distinctions are especially important for patients who have experienced facial injuries. Oral surgeons are typically capable of performing reconstructive and plastic surgeries to help restore your appearance after an accident. This is an important part of the healing process after trauma.

Tools & Technology Used by Oral Surgeons

Your doctor may use a number of tools to assess your condition:

  • 3-D printing
  • Cone beam CT imaging
  • Surgical guides for dental implants
  • Digital impressions
  • Digital x-rays
  • Intraoral cameras
  • Laser therapy

Using advanced equipment and techniques, oral surgeons can provide an accurate diagnosis, better treatment planning, and optimal outcomes.

The Value of Expert Surgical Care

"Your oral and maxillofacial surgeon (OMS) has the specialized education and training in the complexities of the bone, skin, muscles and nerves involved, to ensure you get the best possible results. " American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons

Do Oral Surgeons Only See Referred Patients?

Since oral and maxillofacial surgeons are specialists, you will typically be referred to them by your dentist or general medical practitioner based on the severity of your condition. However, a referral is not required to see this type of doctor.
