Oral Surgery Specialties


Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery requires up to six additional years of hospital based surgical and anesthesia training. As an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon, both Dr. Widner and Dr. Alford manage a wide variety of problems relating to the Mouth, Teeth and Facial Regions.   Our practices include a full scope of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery services with expertise ranging from Wisdom Tooth Removal and Dental Extractions to Dental Implants and Corrective Jaw Surgery. We diagnose and treat Facial Pain, Facial Injuries and TMJ (jaw joint) disorders, as well as perform a full range of Cosmetic Facial Surgery procedures.

Our original office, Widner Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery opened its doors in 1991 in the iconic Golden Molar building in Central Austin. In 2013 we merged with Lake Travis Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, owned by Dr. Jeff Alford, to become Widner & Alford Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. We are pleased to offer unsurpassed treatment at three state of the art facilities in Austin, Lakeway and Bastrop, Texas.

We are dedicated to providing you and your family with a painless, safe and comfortable experience in a caring and compassionate environment. Our administrative staff will gladly file all insurance claims and we are providers on many plans.  We are happy to help with any insurance questions you may have.

We know you have a choice when choosing your health care providers and we will do our best to give you a positive and successful experience. We are here to serve.

Why an Oral Surgeon?

Oral surgeons are the only dental specialists recognized by the American Dental Association who are surgically trained in a hospital based residency
program for a minimum of four years.  Training focuses on bone, skin, and muscle of the face, mouth and jaw with an emphasis on function and
esthetics.  Our doctors are Board Certified Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons.

Our Austin office has achieved accreditation by the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities, Inc. following a rigorous on-site survey.

By meeting this standard our office has committed toward maintaining safety and quality in a surgery facility.
