The Doctors at Pennsylvania Dental Implant and Oral Surgery Associates are Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, the only recognized dental specialists who, after completing dental school, are surgically trained in an American Dental Association-accredited hospital-based residency program for a minimum of four years.
Drs. Dachowski and Sock have trained alongside medical colleagues in internal medicine, general surgery and anesthesiology, and also spent time in otolaryngology, plastic surgery, emergency medicine and other specialty areas.
Dr. Dachowski completed his Oral Maxillofacial Surgery residency at Duke University Medical Center. Dr. Sock completed his Oral Maxillofacial Surgery residency at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. Dr. Sock also earned a medical degree, MD, during his post dental education.
Their training focused almost exclusively on the hard (ie, bone) and soft (ie, skin, muscle) tissue of the face, mouth, and jaws.
Their knowledge and surgical expertise uniquely qualify them to diagnose and treat the functional and esthetic conditions in this anatomical area. The scope of oral and maxillofacial surgery practice includes, among others:
- Outpatient Anesthesia
- Dentoalveolar Surgery to manage diseases of the teeth and their supporting soft and hard tissues
- Surgical Correction of Maxillofacial Skeletal Deformities
- Cleft and Craniofacial Surgery
- Facial Trauma Surgery
- Temporomandibular Joint Surgery
- Pathologic Conditions, such as head and neck cancer
