Yesterday, the World Health Organisation announced that COVID-19 had reached " pandemic " status. The Ontario government is expected soon to announce strategies and measures to move beyond the "containment phase" to the "community spread" phase to counter COVID-19.

Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, along with all other frontline healthcare practitioners, have a pivotal role and responsibility in mitigating the impacts in Ontario.

Welcome to the Ontario Society of 

Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons

Oral and Maxillofacial surgery involves the diagnosis and treatment of diseases, disorders and dysfunctions of the oral-facial complex, namely the anatomical area of the mouth, jaw, face, skull and associated structures.

*** Diagnosis and treatment advice from an oral 
and maxillofacial surgeon requires an examination by an oral and maxillofacial surgeon. Diagnoses and treatment advice cannot be provided by or through this website.

To obtain the services
of an oral and maxillofacial surgeon, ask your dentist for a referral. If you do not have a dentist, the websites of the Royal College of Dental Surgeons of Ontario (the regulatory body for dentists) and the Ontario Dental Association (the association for dentists) can help you identify the general dentists practising in your area.
