Care Built on Empathy and Safety
Facial trauma treatment not requiring immediate medical attention should still be assessed by an oral and maxillofacial surgeon as soon as possible, as it requires prompt diagnosis to ensure treatment is accurate and beneficial long-term. Facial trauma accidents can occur for a number of reasons. Sports, car/motorcycle accidents, accidents at work or through violence are common reasons we treat patients. Dr. Quitmeyer was a former member of the military and has performed facial reconstructions for many veterans as well. Patients who have suffered broken jaw bones, cheekbones, or any other serious facial injury of any kind undergo as much emotional trauma as physical trauma. We strive to create an environment of empathy and safety that allows you to voice your concerns while we educate you on the treatment options available to you. If ER care is not necessary, we always accept facial trauma emergency cases at our office, and do our best to schedule you as soon as possible the day you call.
