Dr. David M. Clark, DMD

Board Certified Oral Surgeon

Dr. David M. Clark is a Diplomate of the American Board of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery. He received his Bachelor, Biology and Neuroscience Degree from the University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine and received specialty training in oral, facial and implant surgery during his residency at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. In addition, he has had extensive training in the administration of general anesthesia and intravenous sedation. For almost twenty years, Dr. Clark has provided his patients with the most modern advancements in wisdom teeth removal, dental implants, TMJ surgery, oral pathology, facial trauma and orthognathic surgery.

Dr. Clark is part time faculty at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center and is an active member of the American Dental Association, American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, Pennsylvania Society of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons and Pennsylvania Dental Association.

Dr. Clark has Extensive Training and Experience in the Control of Pain and Anxiety. The ability to provide patients with safe, effective outpatient anesthesia has distinguished the specialty of oral and maxillofacial surgery since its earliest days. As the surgical specialists of the dental profession, Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons are trained in all aspects of anesthesia administration. Following dental school, Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons complete at least four years of training in a hospital-based surgical residency program alongside medical residents in general surgery, anesthesia and other specialties. During this time, OMS residents must complete a rotation on the medical anesthesiology service, during which they become competent in evaluating patients for anesthesia, delivering the anesthetic and monitoring post-anesthetic patients.

As a result of this extensive training, Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons are well-prepared to identify, diagnose and assess the source of pain and anxiety within the scope of their discipline, and to appropriately administer local anesthesia, all forms of sedation and general anesthesia. Further, they are experienced in airway management, endotracheal intubation, establishing and maintaining intravenous lines, and managing complications and emergencies that may arise during the administration of anesthesia.

In addition, Dr. Clark also performs cosmetic procedures such as BOTOX® and Dermal Fillers like Restylane and Juvederm; nonsurgical treatments that can temporarily smooth frown lines and wrinkles. Costs for cosmetic treatments start at around $300. Botox Treatments typically last for 4-6 months. Dermal Fillers can last anywhere from 4 months up to a year depending on the filler used and injection area.
