Teton Oral Surgery, Jackson WY

Michael Stern DMD, PhD and Matthew T. Swanson are specialists in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery.

Oral and maxillofacial surgery is the specialty of dentistry that focuses on surgery.

This specialty requires an additional four years of hospital-based surgical and anesthesia training after graduation from dental school.  Although any dentist after 4 years of dental school can do some surgical procedures, oral and maxillofacial surgeons have a minimum of 4 additional years specializing in this area.

Dr. Stern trained at the Harvard School of Dental Medicine and received his certificate in oral and maxillofacial surgery from the University of California, San Francisco. In addition, he obtained a Ph.D. in oral biology and has a keen understanding of oral wound healing. 

Dr. Swanson grew up in Minnesota and attended the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry where he received his Doctor of Dental Surgery. After graduation he served on active duty in the United States Air Force in Florida, Idaho, and Japan. He completed his Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Residency at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston, SC. 

As oral and maxillofacial surgeons, Drs. Stern and Swanson have expertise in wisdom tooth removal, dental implant surgery, bone grafting and oral pathology (cysts and tumors of the jaws and mouth).  They are also experienced in the management of facial trauma.

Our staff is trained in assisting with Intravenous (IV) sedation or outpatient general anesthesia in our state-of-the-art office setting. Patients are continuously monitored during and after surgery.
