About Our Practice
Saratoga County Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery Associates is a group surgical practice founded by Dr. Robert D. Carpenter in 1997. Dr. Carpenter announced his retirement from private practice in February of 2010, and his former partners Dr. Lionel A. Bulford and Dr. Zachary J. Schonfield have continued with their commitment to excellent surgical care.
Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery requires additional years of hospital-based surgical and anesthesia training after graduation from dental school. As oral and maxillofacial surgeons, Dr. Bulford and Dr. Schonfield manage a wide variety of problems relating to the mouth, teeth and facial regions.Drs. Bulford and Schonfield practice a full scope of oral and maxillofacial surgery with expertise ranging from Dental Implant Surgery and Wisdom Tooth Removal to Corrective Jaw Surgery. This also includes techniques designed to rebuild bone structure with minimal surgical intervention and optimal patient comfort. We can also diagnose and treat Facial Pain, Facial Injuries and Fractures.
Our staff is trained in assisting with Intravenous (IV) Sedation or outpatient General Anesthesia in our state-of-the-art office setting. Patients are continuously monitored during and after surgery.
