Virginia Society of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons

Welcome to Our Patient Area

Welcome to the official website of the Virginia Society of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons (VSOMS). We are hopeful you will find the information contained within this website helpful in learning more about the specialty of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery in general and more especially in the Commonwealth of Virginia.

As a state component of the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, we strive to meet and exceed the standards set forth by AAOMS and duly represent the profession in Virginia. VSOMS members are graduates of accredited dental and medical schools who have completed an accredited residency training program in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, are licensed to practice in Virginia and limit their practice exclusively to Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery.

Active members must participate in the Societys Office Anesthesia Evaluation Program as a precondition to membership and renew every five years thereafter, and must maintain membership in the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons. We encourage our members to fulfill their civic and professional responsibilities to the community and take part in charitable programs such as Donated Dental Services and the Mission of Mercy project with the Virginia Dental Association.
