Torrey Pines Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery

Dr. Tarkan Sidal Provides Procedures With Compassionate, Quality Care

mp_tpoms2Dr. Tarkan Sidal of Torrey Pines Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery (OMS) and his team take pride in taking the stress and discomfort out of oral and maxillofacial procedures for their patients. “We believe in traditional values such as excellent customer service and personalized attention. Your comfort tops our list of priorities, and we will fully explain the necessary procedures and answer any questions our patients might have. Creating a welcoming and relaxing atmosphere is of utmost importance to us, and we are committed to providing each patient with quality care in a courteous, professional, and thorough manner,” Dr. Sidal proclaimed.

The Torrey Pines OMS office handles all mouth, teeth, and facial region procedures such as dental implant surgery, bone grafting, wisdom teeth removal, corrective jaw surgery, and more. Dr. Sidal also diagnoses and treats orofacial pain, facial injuries/fractures, and oral cancer and biopsy, and he can expertly rebuild bone structure with minimal surgical intervention. Most of the surgeries are completed in the comfort of his office. In the event that a hospital stay is required, Dr. Sidal is on staff at Scripps Memorial Hospital, Sharp Memorial Hospital, Scripps Mercy Hospital, and Scripps Clinic.

With many years of experience and education under his belt, Dr. Sidal obtained his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from UC San Francisco, accomplished his oral and maxillofacial surgery residency at the University of Illinois Chicago Medical Center, and received his Doctor of Medicine degree from the University of Illinois College of Medicine. He even completed a prestigious chief resident appointment and general surgery internship at UC San Francisco, and spent two years on fellowship training at the San Diego Center for Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery.

The benevolent disposition that Dr. Sidal is known for was on display while he worked with the reconstructive team of surgeons, in partnership with Operation of Hope, to donate his surgery services for the facial reconstruction of a young man from Africa (see the story on YouTube as “Sharp Experience Episode 13”). He has also volunteered on numerous surgical missions to underprivileged communities overseas and across the border, treating patients with maxillofacial defects and injuries.
