Oral Surgery

A smile is a curve that sets everything straight.

What is an Oral Surgeon?

An Oral Surgeon is a dentist who has undertaken a further 3 years of training in a hospital setting following completion of a general dental degree. Dr Daphne Halley qualified from the University of Cardiff and completed her specialist training over three years at the Dublin Dental University Hospital, where she was awarded a doctorate in Oral Surgery and graduated with the Dean’s prize. 

She has over 4 years of experience working in Oral and Maxillofacial Units in Ireland and the United Kingdom. Her doctoral research looked at managing antiresorptive related osteonecrosis of the jaws with surgical debridement and L-PRF platelet therapy. Daphne is a member of the Irish Oral Surgery Advisory Committee and, also currently holds a teaching post at the Dublin Dental University Hospital.

When Might You Need an Oral Surgeon?

You might need oral surgery for something as common as wisdom teeth extraction, or for the treatment of a tumour or cyst in the jaw, for example. So oral surgery can solve cosmetic or reconstructive needs. Your dentist might also refer you to an oral surgeon for:

Facial pain or TMJ/TMD

Procedures under IV sedation

Wisdom teeth issues

Oral biopsy
