Innovate, Invest and Grow
Oral and maxillofacial surgery will evolve over the next 10 years.
Our treatment of pain, defects, disease, and trauma will be transformed in amazing ways. The OMS Foundation will fuel that transformation by underwriting cutting-edge research and education that dramatically impacts our patients’ lives.
Our goal is to nurture the next generation of researchers and educators and to fund much-needed clinical innovations in the specialty. By continuing to invest in early-stage research, we will help position our grantees to procure significant additional funding from federal sources and other grant makers.
The scope of oral and maxillofacial surgery has changed significantly over the years, not by chance, but by the contributions of individuals with the curiosity to explore new approaches to the diagnosis and treatment of various diseases and disorders.
- Dr. Daniel M. Laskin (1924-2021)
