We are a referral based surgical practice specialising in Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery (OMS), and have been serving the Central Coast community for over 20 years. An initial consultation is required prior to any surgical treatment.

Then, according to your needs, our doctors can provide procedures under local anaesthetics in our rooms (Gosford or Macquarie Street, Sydney), or can also provide treatment under general anaesthesia in a number of fully accredited Private Hospitals across the Central Coast, Northern Beaches and Sydney regions.
