Comprehensive, Collaborative Care Focused on You

Our team works closely with other specialties when you have a condition or injury that requires the expertise of an oral surgeon. We often collaborate with other physicians – cancer, heart and transplantation specialists, for instance – to provide specialty dental care.

Trauma and accidents often result in injuries that require the expertise of an oral surgeon. As a Level I trauma center, University Hospital gives you access to emergency-trained oral surgeons and South Texas’ most advanced technology and facilities. Our partnership with UT Dentistry San Antonio also gives you access to quality dental and oral surgery services.
