A dentist-surgeon is a dental professional who has completed additional training and education to perform surgical procedures in the oral cavity. This may include procedures such as wisdom teeth extractions, dental implant placement, and gum surgery. Dentist-surgeons may also be trained to perform reconstructive and corrective surgery to address congenital or acquired defects affecting the mouth and jaw. It’s important to note that dentist-surgeons are not medical doctors and do not perform surgery outside of the oral cavity.
