Dr. E. Taiwo Adebayo
BDS MPH FWACS FICS
Ag. Head of Department
 

You are welcome to the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Faculty of Dental Sciences, University of Medical Sciences, Ondo City, Nigeria. Our department as a component of the Faculty of Dental Sciences offers students the opportunity to acquire skills that are cross-cutting between dental surgery and medicine. As a specialty, oral and maxillofacial surgery has evolved slowly but progressively to encompass the diagnosis, surgical and adjunctive treatment of diseases, injuries and deformities of the human face, jaws and associated structures.

 

In our department, emphasis is laid on teaching, research and recognition of variations from normal oral and maxillofacial tissues, infections, traumatology, congenital deformities and degenerative lesions. It also includes topics such as implantology and distraction osteogenesis. We will also explore new technologies like 3D computer aided design/manufacturing and augmented reality applications to oral and maxillofacial surgery.

Students would have an interesting and pleasant educational experience with our faculty at UNIMED.  

 

Sincerely,

 

Dr. E. Taiwo Adebayo BDS MPH FWACS FICS

Ag. Head of Department
