Michael Wasson, MD, board-certified oral and maxillofacial surgeon, has relocated his surgery practice, exclusive to jaw surgeries, from Seattle to Scottsdale, Ariz., to address an unmet need in the areas of sleep apnea, TMJ, orthognathic, and nerve repair surgeries. 

“By only offering these types of surgeries, it provides several advantages to our patients such as proficiency, efficiency, and the reassurance that we are as up-to-date as possible in these areas,” says Wasson in a press release. “Jaw surgery can be very detailed in varying degrees, so creating an environment that allows my patients to feel confident in their decision-making and comfortable knowing they have been provided with a thorough surgical care plan is very important to me. As the only practice in Arizona exclusive to jaw surgery, we are the practice other oral and maxillofacial surgeons refer their patients to.”

AZ Jaw Surgery utilizes up-to-date techniques and technology such as 3D imaging, printing, digital scanning, and the ability to work with clear aligners instead of wire braces for jaw surgery. In many cases, this offers options to patients that result in the least amount of pain, scarring, and recovery time, while also having the highest level of accuracy, esthetics, and long-term success, according to a press release from AZ Jaw Surgery. 

“My practice model was created so the central focus of my practice stayed true to those suffering from jaw conditions and that patients in need of surgery became aware that surgical options now available have improved tremendously,” says Wasson in a press release. 

A grand opening recently was held for the new facility, located at 10250 N. 92nd Street, Suite 301, Scottsdale, Ariz.
