Central Maryland Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery is extremely proud that our entire clinical staff is certified in ACLS (Advance Cardiac Life Support). This is above the Maryland State Board standards, which mandates the surgeon be certified in ACLS, but the clinical staff is only required to be BLS (Basic Life Support) certified.
We are the only surgical practice in the region which has independently established a policy for the entire clinical staff to be ACLS trained. We encourage future patients or their families to inquire with a potential surgeon’s office about their assistants ACLS status, especially if they are performing out-patient anesthesia. Our office continues to strive and focus on excellence in patient safety and comfort.
Our team has in depth experience both clinically and administratively. We share in the practice philosophy of ‘patient focused care’, and will care for you or loved one as if they were our own family members.
The clinical team has been with the practice for many years, and have extensive experience in both office-based oral surgery, as well as complex hospital-based maxillofacial surgery. In an effort to maintain our patient’s continuity of care our clinical team has obtained credentials to operate with our surgeons at Howard County General Hospital.
The administrative team has decades of experience with medical and dental health insurance plans, treatment planning, and health care financing. They will guide you and your family through the health coverage process, and will also assist in communication with your referring doctor’s office.
