Loudoun Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery: Bluhm, Dorsch, Vandervort


Dr. Dorsch and his team made my daughter feel at ease for her wisdom teeth extraction. I highly recommend this practice.
Loudoun OMS is amazing!! Caden, Diane & Dr. D performed another successful wisdom teeth removal X 4! Zero swelling for this patient! The care is amazing here! So grateful for this practice and the care they provide!
April 26th was an excellent meeting for doctors, hygienists, and staff. Dynamic speaker Marco Brindis presented so much important information on the Conus system for full mouth implant reconstruction. Greater Loudoun Study Club says a big Thank You to Dentsply for partnering with us to bring this cutting edge education to our members.

Loudoun Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery: Andrew Bluhm, DDS, Steve Dorsch, DDS, MD, Gene "Jay" Vandervort DDS, MD

"Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery is the specialty of dentistry which includes the surgical and adjunctive treatment of diseases, injuries and defects involving both the functional and esthetic aspects of the hard and soft tissues of the oral and maxillofacial region." -American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Over the past ten years, the training of contemporary oral and maxillofacial surgeons (OMFS) has changed dramatically in response to medical and dental healthcare advancements. The training begins after completion of dental school and includes a hospital based internship as a prerequisite. Completion of an OMFS residency requires 4-6 years of hospital based training focusing solely on the maxillofacial region. It includes extensive training on traditional intra-oral surgery as well as maxillofacial surgical training. It also includes medical training and rotations such as anesthesia, critical care medicine, emergency room, internal medicine, general surgery, plastic surgery, neurosurgery, etc ... OMFS residents also receive training in the administration of out patient anesthesia and are required to administer hundreds of anesthetics during their residency training including local anesthesia, general anesthesia and IV sedation. Contemporary residencies can be structured to include obtaining a medical degree. Fellowship training in areas of special interest is also available. Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery is a surgical specialty which encompasses surgical and diagnostic services to treat diseases, deformities, injuries and cosmetic defects of the facial and oral region. OMFS are considered the "orthopedic and plastic and reconstructive surgeons of the maxillofacial region" (the upper jaw, cheek bones, the bones that support & surround the eyes, lower jaw, chin, jaw joints, associated facial structures, and the intra-oral structures including teeth and their supporting bone and gum tissues, salivary glands, and lining tissues of the mouth.) Many of the procedures performed are in an office ambulatory surgical setting. These procedures include the removal of teeth, management of oral and facial pathology, laser surgery to manage snoring, surgical placement of dental implants, regeneration of deficient bone and gum tissues around teeth and implants and cosmetic periodontal surgery to enhance gum tissue contours and beautify a patient’s smile. They also include minor cosmetic procedures such as chin and cheek-bone enhancements. Sedation and general anesthesia can be used to manage discomfort and anxiety. The remainder of oral and maxillofacial surgical procedures Dr. Bluhm, Dr. Dorsch and Dr. Vandervort perform are done in the hospital. These procedures include corrective jaw surgery to treat jaw growth problems which can affect both the function and appearance of the oral and facial area, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) surgery, treatment of complicated facial injuries and fractures, reconstruction of jaw or facial regions resulting from trauma or pathology and management of tumors of the jaw and face. Your oral and maxillofacial surgeon has extensive hospital based training in the delivery of inpatient and outpatient general anesthesia and IV sedation. Our staff is trained in assisting with surgery and anesthesia under the guidelines of the AAOMS within the state of the art office setting. Patients are continuously monitored during and after surgery.

Welcome to Loudoun Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery! Since 1994, we have established a long-standing reputation as a trusted oral surgery practice in Loudoun County. We have offices in Ashburn and Leesburg, Virginia, and serve the surrounding areas, including Sterling, Reston, Herndon, South Riding, Purcellville, Middleburg, Lovettsville, Lucketts and Winchester. We offer a wide range of services, including wisdom teeth removal, dental implants, treatment of oral and facial injuries and corrective jaw surgery. Most procedures can be done in our state-of-the-art office, with various anesthetic techniques, including IV sedation and general anesthesia.

Mission: We have a mission that is fourfold: To educate our patients, as we believe that well informed patients are more comfortable with their treatment decisions; to deliver high quality care using cutting edge surgical and anesthetic techniques; to always strive to further our knowledge and the knowledge of our professional community; and to work as a team to make our patients’ experience comfortable and streamlined.

Let’s think “Safe at home”, not “Stuck at home”. ❤️ We’re missing our office family and all our patients, but know this time will pass. 🦋 Stay safe everyone. •

With the number of patients testing positive growing by the hour, AAOMS believes it is imperative that oral and maxillofacial surgeons continue to treat emergency patients in office to minimize the exposure risk to the public and to help ease the burden on our already overtaxed emergency rooms. While we are open for emergencies, we will continue to take as many precautions as possible. Call us at 703-729-8700

This is how our doctors practice #socialdistancing
Dr. B, his wife, and daughter did a 5 mile hike on the Signal Knob trail in the George Washington National Forest. While Dr.D and Dr. V both spent time working in their yards! We hope everyone is social distancing and staying healthy!

We wanted to take this time as an opportunity to share some of our sterilization procedures we have in place in the office. Cleanliness is of course always important, but now that its got everyone stressing, we wanted to bring you some peace of mind!
Debbie is our sterilization technician. Part of her duties are to move trays from completed surgeries through sterilization.
Trays are brought into sterilization and placed on the “dirty side” by an assistant on the case. Debbie first removes all sharps and places them in a trash container for sharps. Any trash with blood on it is placed in a biohazard trash container and the rest is thrown away. The tray is then sprayed with a disinfectant spray and wiped down with caviwipes, then dried and placed on the “clean side”
The instruments go through a three step sterilization process.
First, Debbie scrubs the instruments by hand with a brush and soap under hot water, this is mostly to simply clean the instruments off. Next the instruments spend 12 minutes in an ultrasonic shaker in soapy water to remove any stuck residue.
For the last step, the instruments are bagged in pouches to keep them sterile and placed in one of two machines, called an autoclave and a statim. These fill a chamber with sterile water, heat up, and pressurize to sterilize the instruments.
Meanwhile, the assistants spray and wipe down the countertops, tables, chairs, and monitors and replace headrest and lamp handle covers between each patient.

How Do Dental Implants Work? | What Are Dental Implants? | AAOMS

Excellent information

myoms.org Dental implants are composed of three parts: the titanium implant that fuses with the jaw, an abutment and a crown. Once healed, they feel and perform like normal teeth.

Your dental implant can last many years when cared for properly.

Hannah, Thank you so much for your 5 Star review! We are so glad your daughter did well and you had a good experience! 😊 •

In the effort to bring cutting-edge dental education to our community Loudoun OMS is a chapter of Seattle Study Club, through which we sponsor many continuing education programs for our member dentists and dental hygienists. Last night was an awesome night with a combined program featuring Parag Kachalia’s “Technology in Dentistry” program with discussion, followed by tech fair rotations with 3 different oral scanners demonstrating their products. Many thanks to Zimmer Biomet whose presentation on Digital Workflow gave us great information and tied Dr. Kachalia’s lecture with the tech demos. First Citizen’s Bank helped sponsor and answered finance-side questions. Great evening!

Today’s #MeetUsMonday is Cristina! Cristina has been a surgical assistant with us for over a year now. She’s also a college student studying biology. When she’s not in class or at the office, you might find her responding to emergencies with Loudoun’s Emergency Rescue Team! She’s really excited to start driving ambulances soon. She also spends time on her family’s farm (she especially loves working with the goats) or playing with her adorable dog Ivy. Cristina enjoys playing the french horn, painting, and traveling places that she can explore. These action shots of Cristina and Dr. V are from the day she volunteered to help do free surgeries for the underprivileged!
