About Our Practice

Thomas Oral Surgery will soon be Deer Creek Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery. We  are the only full time oral surgery practice in Overland Park, KS. Dr. Thomas and Dr. Wood are board certified and have a combined history of practicing oral surgery for over 30 years.

Oral and maxillofacial surgery requires additional years of hospital-based surgical and anesthesia training after graduation from dental school. As oral and maxillofacial surgeons, Drs. Thomas and Wood manage a variety of problems relating to the mouth, teeth, and face. Both practice a wide scope of oral and maxillofacial surgery with expertise ranging from dental implant surgery and wisdom tooth removal to corrective jaw surgery. This also includes techniques designed to rebuild bone structure with minimal surgical intervention and optimal patient comfort. Our office can also diagnose and treat facial pain, facial injuries, and fractures.

Most of our surgeries are performed in our private surgery center.  Our staff of registered nurses is trained in assisting with outpatient general anesthesia in this state-of-the-art ambulatory surgery center. Patients are continuously monitored before, during and after surgery.
