Tauranga Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery
Tauranga Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery represents the association between Dr John Bridgman who is a specialist Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeon, and Dr David Chrisp who is a specialist Oral Surgeon. John and David practice together to provide high quality specialist oral surgical services in Tauranga for locals and those in the wider Bay of Plenty community.
The primary function of Tauranga Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery is to complement the care provided by general dental and medical practitioners on a referral basis. We most commonly remove impacted wisdom teeth and provide the surgery for dental implants. We also frequently manage potentially difficult dental extractions for which the patient's general dental practitioner may feel unable to safely manage.
Where appropriate, patients can be seen without referral. However, we do not provide general dental care so after surgical treatment, patients are referred back to their general dental practitioner for ongoing dental care. For patients who come to see us without a general dental practitioner, we endeavour to assist them in finding a suitable local practitioner.
The scope of our specialist care extends to more complex surgery with procedures to eradicate jaw pathology such as cysts or tumours, surgery to correct facial deformity, jaw joint surgery and oral medicine.
