To understand why we chose the name, Saddle Rock Institute, it is important to understand the vision of where we want to grow. We see the Saddle Rock Institute serving as an umbrella for future endeavors that will include a foundation, continued educational offerings and research to advance the field of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgical care. The goal of the foundation will be to support patients in obtaining the care they need and to provide advocacy for patients with maxillofacial conditions that are under recognized in the in the broader medical community. As we grow, we look to develop continuing education and further surgical training for general practitioners, other specialists, surgeons, residents, and fellows in the field. Additionally, we look to foster continued relationships with researchers to advance the specialty care for patients with maxillofacial conditions. On the surface this institute may look like a straightforward Oral and Maxillofacial Surgical practice. However, this practice will serve as the foundation for much more, centered on the mission of providing compassionate, evidence based, high quality care to further the health of patients with maxillofacial conditions and to ultimately ease suffering.
