The days are over when Texas Valley residents had to take a journey to faraway cities for care. It is difficult for a region to have surgeons specializing in Oral & Maxillofacial, but in our case, we have them with lots of experience in this field. South Texas is lucky because we have Rio Grande Valley Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons, better known by their acronym RGVOMS. These surgeons’ practices joined forces to form this new entity to educate residents about this specialty.

They treat dental and oral conditions like Impacted teeth, Extractions, and Facial trauma. ATMJ (temporomandibular joint) syndrome, Cysts and tumors, Diseases of the jaw and mouth, and Gum disease, among other valuable services. The newly formed entity is called RGVOMS. The doctors are Dr. Luciano Stroia, Dr. Karl Frey, Dr. Omel Cardenas, and Dr. Carlos Cruz. Please get to know more about them in this issue.
