Facial trauma is an area of expertise for an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon. Much of their training goes towards treating and repairing facial injuries, including the repair of fractures of the upper and lower jaws, orbital bones around the eyes and forehead fractures. Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons are dual qualified in Australia with both a Medical and Dental degree and therefore have an excellent understanding and knowledge of how not only how to restore the facial bones but also setting the jaws in the correct dental occlusion, which is imperative to repairing trauma of the face.

Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons are one of the most qualified surgeons to deal with facial trauma.

Dr de Looze has had extensive experience in dealing with all aspects of maxillofacial trauma from motor vehicle to ballistic trauma, sporting injuries to occupational accidents.
