The only fully dedicated and accredited Oral Surgery clinic in Palmerston North

Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery is a surgical speciality with its origins in dentistry. At Broadway Surgical Clinic, we deal with the surgical treatment of diseases, disorders and malformation of the mouth, teeth, jaws and associated structures.
Oral and Maxillofacial surgery specialist training involves a lengthy education process. It begins with dentistry, which is then followed by a minimum five years in a hospital environment. The training that we undergo incorporates the essential elements of plastic and reconstructive surgery along with ear, nose and throat surgery. We also learn about other general surgery.

Registered Specialists

Oral and Maxillofacial surgeons are represented by a specific professional body called the Australian and New Zealand Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons (ANZAOMS).

Bruce Murdoch and Peter Leung are full members –both are also Life Fellows of The International Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, and members of the New Zealand Dental Association.

How Our Referrals Work

Our patients are referred from a wide variety of other clinicians including general dentists, family doctors and other dental specialists (for example Orthodontists) as well as other surgeons who recognize the specialised training required in the treatment of conditions involving the mouth, jaw and Maxillofacial region. Oral and maxillofacial surgeons do not practice any other form of dentistry and are required to limit their practice to surgery before being registered as a specialist.

Structure of The Practice

Broadway Surgical Clinic is a fully licensed facility, being the only dental based practice in the lower North Island with accreditation for day-stay surgery and procedures (NZS8164:2005). We are a private hospital. At the rooms we provide full general anaesthetic facilities, with visiting anaesthetists, registered nurses and support staff. Our oral and maxillofacial surgeons can also provide patients IV sedation or local anaesthesia.

Scope of The Surgery

The range of surgery performed by oral and maxillofacial surgeons is not well understood by the public.

In order to help understand some of the surgical procedures we provide, a brief explanation is listed on the services page.
