Welcome to Our Oral Surgery Office

At Charleston Oral and Maxillofacial Facial Surgery Associates (OMSA), our goal is to provide all our patients with a safe and comfortable and experience. We believe everyone should be able to have a healthy and happy smile and everything we do is geared towards this goal.


Dr. Porter, Dr. Ratliff and Dr. Doles manage a wide variety of problems relating to the mouth, teeth, and facial regions. As board certified oral surgeons, they have both completed years of hospital-based surgical and anesthesia training, following graduation from dental school. They are equipped with the expertise and experience to provide each of our patients with the utmost care.

At OMSA, Drs. Porter, Ratliff and Doles 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.

Our office provides Intravenous (IV) sedation and outpatient general anesthesia in our comfortable and welcoming office. Patients are continuously monitored during and after surgery to ensure a safe recovery. Our goal is to ensure our patients have a smooth and pleasant experience, and that they are thrilled with their results.


Our surgical staff at OMSA are experienced oral and maxillofacial surgical assistants. Our registered nurse (RN) is on-site to assist during surgical procedures. For longer or more challenging cases, our anesthesiologist Dr. Thomas MacDonald supervises out-patient anesthesia procedures in our operating room conveniently located on site. Our friendly administrative staff are well versed in health and insurance policies, and everyone is CPR certified. Your care and safety are our top priorities!
