Oral and maxillofacial surgery requires additional years of hospital-based surgical and anesthesia training after graduation from dental school. Dr. Doherty spent significant time gaining medical experience rotating on the following services during training: general surgery, vascular surgery, internal medicine, intensive care, cardiology, plastic and reconstructive surgery, and trauma surgery at a Level 1 trauma center.
As an oral and maxillofacial surgeon, Dr. Doherty manages a wide variety of problems relating to the mouth, teeth, and facial regions. Dr. Doherty practices a full scope of oral and maxillofacial surgery with expertise ranging from dental implant surgery to wisdom tooth removal to corrective jaw surgery. This also includes techniques designed to rebuild bone structure with minimal surgical intervention and optimal patient comfort. We can also diagnose and treat facial pain, facial injuries, and fractures.
Dr. Doherty provides for the majority of on-call coverage for Asante Rogue Regional Trauma Services and those patients with soft and hard tissue facial injuries. He works closely with the Trauma and Neurosurgical Services to provide such complex care for injured patients. Such broad experience also allows Dr. Doherty to apply such techniques towards facial rejuvenation and treating the aging face.
