Welcome to Sydney South OMS

Sydney South OMS is a referral based surgical practice specialising in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery (OMS). This is the surgical speciality involved in the diagnosis and management of disorders of the face, jaws and mouth.


We are a professional team led by three highly experienced and dedicated practitioners, Dr Anthony Anker, A/Prof David Sherring and Dr Tristan Madden who are supported by a friendly and proficient administration and clinical team. We have been serving the communities of St George and Sutherland Shire for over 25 years and more recently the Illawarra Area.

Our practice is committed to providing the highest quality of patient care and strives to be empathetic, caring and efficient whilst at all times respecting the individual needs of each patient and maintaining confidentiality.

In view of the Covid 19 pandemic the practice has decided to cease direct patient consulting and surgery from close of business on Friday 27 March 2020.

Our priority is the safety of our staff, our patients and protecting our community.

All future treatment over this period will be postponed and our staff are working hard to contact all patients.

During this period of closure we can be contacted by phone between 9am – 3pm Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday or by email reception@sydneysouthoms.com.au

We do anticipate offering a limited Telehealth consultation service in the weeks ahead, please monitor our website for details.

Procedures

Wisdom Teeth Removal

Third Molar teeth generally erupt in late teens – early twenties which has been referred by some as the age of wisdom… hence the name Wisdom Teeth.

Teeth Extractions

Surgical removal of a tooth or teeth, involving elevation and sometimes sectioning and cutting into the bone.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are titanium posts screwed into the jaw bone with a crown placed on the post to replace a missing tooth or teeth.

Orthognathic Surgery

Surgery performed on the jaws to put them into correct occlusion (bite position), usually carried out in conjunction with an Orthodontist. Benefits include improvement in chewing, speaking, possibly breathing (Obstructive Sleep Apnoea) and sometimes the facial appearance.

TMJ is short for temporomandibular joint, which is where the lower jaw attaches to the base of the skull on each side of the head, just in front of the ears.

Oral Pathology – Lesions, cysts

Any abnormal bony or soft tissue lesion or swelling, including salivary glands. Some diagnoses are possible by physical examination but other conditions may require further investigations such as x-rays and biopsies sent to Pathologists.
