Oral Medicine Clinic

Our clinic is a regional referral center providing health care services to a large number of patients with orofacial pain, mucosal and salivary gland disorders. All phases of dental treatment are routinely performed for a population of medically compromised patients, including fixed, implant and removable prosthetics, endodontics, periodontics, oral surgery and oral medicine.

Biopsy Service

The "New Jersey Diagnostic Service" provides a surgical pathology diagnostic service for oral and maxillofacial lesions as a resource for the faculty of Rutgers School of Dental Medicine and the dental communities of New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania. The collective and cumulative experience of this service program contributes to a broad range of education consultative and research activities.

Radiology Services

Radiologic services such as panoramic, tomographic and cephalometric films are provided for Implant, TMJ and Orthodontic patients. This service is a resource for not only dental school patients, but is open for referrals from outside practitioners. The Howard and Ina Drew Maxillofacial Imaging Center was recently inaugurated to provide three dimensional Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) imaging. This center is located in the Oral & Maxillofacial Radiology clinic. The center is able to provide advanced imaging, interpretive services, as well as SimPlant formatting, for the benefit of the patients.
