Dr. Brandon Stanley wants to clear up any confusion regarding his title, oral and maxillofacial surgeon. “It’s hard enough to pronounce,” he says, “but an OMS is the person at the end of the line to fix any dental surgical misadventures a patient may experience. It encompasses everything from extractions and dental implants to reconstructive surgery and bone and soft tissue grafting.” While this sort of dental work is less than pleasant, Dr. Stanley strives to do everything he can to alleviate and comfort his patients. “There is a lot of fear surrounding the health care community in general, and a lot of times people forget to have the empathy to understand that it’s not easy to be in the chair,” he explains. “Putting yourself in that chair allows you to visualize from that vantage point and transform a terrifying experience into one of comfort.”
“I love the opportunity of working closely with the best restorative dental professionals in the world, here in Chattanooga.”
