Training of of Dr. Faerber and Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Residency

Dr. Faerber completed seven years of hospital based residency training starting at the Ohio State University Hospitals and Dental School Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery residency for two years where he did his anesthesia training and then his final five years of residency training combined with advanced standing medical school and general surgery internship at Truman Medical Center and University of Missouri-Kansas City Medical School.  Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery involves hospital residency training that includes rotations on anesthesia, general surgery, medicine, and other related surgery rotations such as head and neck and neurosurgery.  Dr. Faerber received the benefit of anesthesia training at a large university hospital system at Ohio State and a busy trauma rotation at Truman Medical Center.  He rotated as a physician surgeon in general surgery after graduating from medical school and then completed his chief resident rotation in oral and maxillofacial surgery at Truman Medical Center after finishing general surgery.

During his residency training Dr. Faerber was required to manage patients both in the general surgery and neurosurgery ICU as well as managing patients in recovery rooms after complex surgery and anesthesia.  Patients referred from the dental office may not have an understanding of the length and depth of training that is involved in a “dual degree” (MD & DDS) oral and maxillofacial surgery residency.  They also may not be aware that Dr. Faerber practices on both medical and dental licenses in addition to operating in an AAAHC accredited office-based surgery center.  All patients are evaluated for medical issues that could affect their care in anesthesia as well as surgery results.

Dr. Faerber started his private practice in 1991 and became board certified by the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery in 1993.  He also completed board certification by the National Dental Board Anesthesiology in 1995.
