Maxillofacial Surgeon Jobs in New Mexico

Diagnose and surgically resolve problems in the maxillofacial region. Maxillofacial surgeons perform both functional and aesthetic procedures, including TMJ therapy and reconstructive work for accident victims. Other common issues they address are facial pain and tumors/cysts. As one of the nine dental specialties recognized by the American Dental Association (ADA), this career requires significant expertise encompassing diseases, injuries, and defects affecting the jaw and facial areas. Many professionals in this field also perform surgeries on oral tissues.

Maxillofacial surgeons usually work in outpatient clinics or hospitals, although some establish their own private practices. They typically work long hours, as operations can span long periods of time. Additionally, surgeons in hospital and clinic environments must be on call in case of emergency.
