Rockford OMS has been providing Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery care for patients in Northern Illinois and Southern Wisconsin since 1986. Although it is helpful to have a referral to our office, it is not necessary. We will be happy to evaluate your condition and also provide referral to other dental or medical providers if necessary. Healthcare is better suited to a team approach. We believe that specialty care should be provided by a specialist.
