Dr. Swiderski completed a six-year residency program in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at the world-renowned Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. Some of the first orthognathic (jaw) and dental implant surgery procedures performed in the United States were done at the Mayo Clinic by some of Dr. Swiderski’s instructors. While at this prestigious institution, he was trained in the full scope of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery including management of a wide variety of problems relating to the mouth, teeth and facial regions including wisdom tooth removal and management of facial pathology. He can also diagnose and treat facial injuries and perform a full range of dental implant procedures and bone grafting. In addition, Dr. Swiderski also received comprehensive training in the administration of general anesthesia and intravenous sedation.

Dr. Swiderski is a certified Diplomate of the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, which places him in an exclusive category of oral surgeons. To become board certified, Dr. Swiderski was required to demonstrate extensive training, experience and knowledge in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery by passing both a written examination as well as a rigorous oral examination by the certifying board. Successful completion of this process by Dr. Swiderski means that you are assured he is extremely competent in all aspects of oral and maxillofacial surgery.

Dr. Swiderski is trained both as a physician and oral and maxillofacial surgeon. The residency training program at the Mayo Clinic is integrated with the Mayo Medical School, meaning that while in training he obtained a Doctor of Medicine degree and is licensed to practice medicine in addition to dentistry in the State of Oregon.

Patient Testimonial

I hadn't seen a dentist or doctor in around 11 years but from the first phone call and appointment with Dr. Swiderski's office I felt comfortable and safe, not only with his office staff, but with him and the procedure that needed done. I really never expected to be needing my teeth cut out of my gums and drilled just for this procedure as I thought in time they would grow out, so when they didn't I was terrified that I needed such an invasive procedure. After a lot of childhood trauma in medical settings, it was no easier preparing myself for surgery until I encountered Dr Swiderski and his team. I've never felt safer or more cared for by medical professionals and for once in my life I didn't even feel the needle for general anesthesia as it went in thanks to the ethyl chloride spray! I have a lot of phobias, but this team made them easy to face. I wish I could go back to this team for every medical procedure I ever needed, so I can say without a doubt if I do ever need any oral surgery again this would be the place I come to. I never even felt a thing until I was taking ibuprofen to ease the swelling 5 hours after the surgery once feeling finally returned and I could swallow properly. I've never encountered anyone better and I always, rather embarrassingly, brag about it to my friends who need this procedure, right before I recommend his team. If you're gonna go anywhere go with these guys! They'll not only make you feel safe and comfortable, even when you have a lot of questions, but they'll make the procedure seem easy in all their experience. I never had a serious problem when all was said and done, yet they still let me come in just for a checkup a week later. They answered all my questions without making me feel ashamed and best of all they did an amazing job!!

I'm only ever here when I have something catastrophic going on with my teeth (stating the obvious), and this last time it was a very infected tooth where the infection was taking out bone, affecting my sinuses, etc. I was a mess, because my teeth hate me. Dr. Swiderski told me that TWO teeth needed to be pulled, because the one next to Bad Tooth was loose (fine, just a little) and the infection had basically caused too much bone loss. As is my way, I tried to air a grievance about this, noting that my Googling was surely as good as Dr. Swiderski's several advanced degrees and his prestigious residency at the Mayo Clinic. Perhaps not surprisingly, I was shot down, albeit nicely considering I was of course talking nonsense. All of the assistants are wonderful too, as I kept warning them that "I'm a baby about this stuff" and "it takes a lot of novocaine to work" and making the sad face of dread. Oh, and the x-ray apparatus they have is very high-tech! Regular plates hurt my mouth because I have mandibular tori (which I didn't even know weren't normal until I was an adult), but here they have a whirring machine that rotates and magically takes x-rays. So, the point. This was a complicated dental surgery because so much of the bone was eaten away and it involved two teeth and I'm a wimp about anything dental-related....but I'll have to go back for follow up and probably bone grafting, and I actually don't dread it. That's how nice everyone there is, and how hard they work to make sure this is as pain-free as possible, so much unlike the root canal sadistic nightmares of my youth. It's also nice of Dr. Swiderski to check in the evening of surgery to make sure we're doing okay. Overall, if you need dental surgery, I highly recommend Dr. Swiderski and crew!
