Man in trouble in Oklahoma was not a practicing general dentist, but an Oral Surgeon. There is a big difference.

Just wanted to get a post out about the oral surgeon in Oklahoma.

It is important for everyone to know he was an Oral surgeon, which is quite different that a practicing general dentist. For the most part, us dentists and our teams do cleanings,fillings, root canals and crowns. Unlike oral surgeons who perform oral surgery all day with extractions, IV sedation, and more complicated surgerys. An oral surgeons office is basically a surgery center, much different from a normal office. Oral surgeons go through 4-5 more years of training and are specialist, and again very different from a regular dentist. I thought it was important for everyone to make that distinction, since some of the news channels are not.
