At Spokane Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, we are committed to the continual pursuit of excellence in the areas of reconstructive, trauma, orthognathic, dental-alveolar, and maxillofacial cosmetic surgery, through our commitment to higher education and our dual accreditation by the Joint Commission and the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Healthcare (AAAHC). We are one of the first and only practices in the country to hold both accreditations.
Oral and maxillofacial surgery requires four to six additional years of hospital-based surgical and anesthesia training. As an oral and maxillofacial surgeon, Dr. Paxton manages a wide variety of problems relating to the mouth, teeth, and facial regions. He practices the full scope of oral and maxillofacial surgery, with expertise ranging from cleft lip and palate surgery, and cosmetic facial surgery, to corrective jaw surgery and wisdom tooth removal.
He can also diagnose and treat patients with chronic facial pain, facial injuries, and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders, and perform a full range of dental implant procedures.
The diverse, experienced, and certified Spokane Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery surgical staff is specifically trained in assisting with IV sedation, general anesthesia, and simple-to-complex surgical procedures within our Joint Commission and AAAHC accredited, state-of-the-art office setting. Patients are continuously monitored during and after surgery, with the safety of our patients as priority one.
All surgical staff are CPR, ACLS, and PALS certified, and all are CPR instructors. In addition, general anesthesia provided by a board-certified anesthesiologist or CRNA is also available within our facility.
