Oral Surgeon in Tigard, OR: Meet Dr. Wood
Robert J. Wood DDS, MD, is a board-certified Oral and Maxillofacial surgeon who serves the community of Tigard and its surrounding areas. He is a native of Oregon and grew up in the Albany and Corvallis area. He received both his Doctorate of Dental Surgery and his Doctorate of Medicine degrees from Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center in New Orleans, Louisiana. He has set up and been involved in successful private practices in Corvallis, Oregon and Baton Rouge, Louisiana. In 2014, Dr. Wood purchased the Tigard and Warrenton locations and is excited to be back in his home state.
Dr. Wood graduated number one in his class and was one of only three candidates selected from around the country to enter the highly competitive LSU program of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. There he completed his post-graduate training in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, and a one-year general surgery internship at Charity Hospital in New Orleans.
Years of extensive training has allowed him to offer a wide variety of oral and facial procedures to his patients. These include general anesthesia and intravenous sedation, removal of wisdom teeth, dental implants, pediatric and adult oral/facial trauma, jaw surgery, facial cosmetic and laser surgery, and surgical removal of oral and facial tumors.
Dr. Wood has a special interest in dental implants, including bone grafting procedures, complex CT scan planning, and peri-implant soft tissue augmentation.
Dr. Wood is eager to develop a personal relationship with his patients and provides excellent care in a professional environment. Every patient will be seen by Dr. Wood and their case will be managed as a team with the patient’s referring dentist. I look forward to the opportunity to work with you in the future.
