Our expertise

Maxillofacial surgery may be required when a significant injury has occurred to an area of the head, as it will reconstruct damaged sections and restore the structure of a person’s head and improve their function and appearance.

Oral and maxillofacial surgery may also be necessary in cases where there are congenital defects of the jaw, skin malignancies, temporomandibular joint disorders and other conditions, including bone loss and wisdom teeth that have become impacted and are causing pain, and possibly, also infection.


Make an enquiry

If you have any questions relating to treatment options or pricing information then get in touch with us by filling out one of our contact boxes or giving us a call on 020 7078 3845.

Our Appointments Team have a dedicated and caring approach to finding you the earliest appointment possible with the best specialist.

 If you are self-paying you don’t need a referral from your GP for a consultation. You can simply refer yourself* and book an appointment.

If you have medical insurance (e.g. Bupa, Axa PPP, Aviva), you will need to contact your insurer to get authorisation for any treatment and, in most cases, you will require a referral letter from your GP.

If you do not have a GP, then we have an in-house private GP practice that you can use. Alternatively we can suggest the most appropriate course of action for you to take, given your location and individual circumstance.

*Please note – for investigations such as X-rays and MRI’s a referral will be required. However, we may be able to arrange this for you through our on-site private GP.
