Your First Visit

Welcome to OMAX

Established in 1975 by Dr. Gary Maxwell, our practice soon became internationally recognized as a leader in the field of oral and maxillofacial surgery. The full scope of oral and maxillofacial surgery is performed in our practice. Procedures such as removal of wisdom teeth and dental extractions, dental implants, corrective jaw surgery, TMJ surgery, biopsies and treatment of pathology and trauma are just a sample of what we do on a daily basis.

Experience Matters

Our practice has participated in nine separate multi-center prospective clinical trials involving partial edentulism, single tooth replacement, wide diameter implants, guided tissue regeneration, orthodontic anchorage, craniofacial prosthesis reconstruction, the zygoma fixture, the Brånemark Novum treatment of the edentulous mandible, and recombinant bone morphogenetic protein (rhBMP-2) for sinus floor augmentation.

Top of the Class

Dr. Skinner graduated with honors from a highly respected, accredited dental school. Following dental school he completed a four-year hospital based residency program in oral and maxillofacial surgery. In conjunction with his oral surgery residency program he experienced additional training in areas such as anesthesiology, neurosurgery, general surgery, internal medicine and emergency/trauma care.

A Doctoral Legacy

Dr. Daniel Skinner joined the team in 1997 and continues the tradition of surgical excellence at OMAX. Similar to the doctors before him, Dr. Skinner is a board certified oral and maxillofacial surgeon who specializes in diagnosing and treating conditions involving the function and appearance of the mouth, jaws, and face.
