The Department of oral and maxillofacial surgery is located on the 6th floor of A.B. Shetty Memorial Institute of Dental Sciences with an area of 12,500 sq.ft. 

It is a specialty of dentistry concerned with the diagnosis and surgical treatment of congenital or acquired diseases, dysfunction, defects or injuries of the mouth, jaws, face, neck and adjacent craniofacial regions

Department of Oral and Maxillofacial surgery was started in the year 1985 and the Post Graduate program in the year 1991. Our department was the first to initiate the three year post graduate program in India. Since then we have progressed by leaps and bounds as a center of excellence for craniofacial surgery. Over the years  we have performed more than 20,000 complex surgeries of the head and neck region which is a very unique all over the country.

Our Mission:  The department mission is to dispense health care in the specialty of oral and maxillofacial surgery in an ethical manner in a totally aseptic environment with personalized care.  The collaborative professionals of the oral and maxillofacial surgery team are committed to provide the best in quality patient care by promoting a safe and supportive environment.  We are dedicated to the provision of patient focused care by treating the individual with dignity, respect and compassion and being sensitive to the diversity of human needs. 

Our Vision: The vision is to produce oral health care providers with a holistic approach to health care and management of patients with oral diseases. We will strive to achieve our goals by focusing attention on enhancing safety, quality and patient satisfaction.  We aim to provide the highest level of training in the full scope of Oral and Maxillofacial surgery in a comprehensive manner and to develop a curriculum with a strong academic and research background.  We also aim to collaborate with and establish a good relationship between oral and maxillofacial surgery and medicine, thus making it an independent and equal profession and not an allied health entity.  We shall do this by trying to incorporate a major part of our specialty into hospital setting viz. operating rooms, wards and casualty.  Thus, we aim and shall strive to be a leading centre for research, training and provision of quality services in the sphere of maxillofacial surgery.

Core values:  We endeavour to develop and maintain sound Ethical and Professional Behaviour.  We promote the values of truth, integrity, honest, tolerance and accountability.  WE strive to treat all with respect, equity, dignity and compassion.  We believe in excellence in Clinical Practice and promote capacity building and individual development among staff.
