Dr. Robert Wagner DMD, MD, FRCD(C)
Diplomate, American Board of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons
Dr. Wagner graduated from the University of Saskatchewan, College of Dentistry in 1996 with a Doctorate of Dental Medicine. He completed a six-year Oral Maxillofacial Surgery residency in Detroit, Michigan through St. Joseph Mercy-Oakland Hospital/ University of Detroit Mercy. During this residency, he also obtained his Medical Degree from Wayne State Medical School. During his residency Dr. Wagner developed extensive knowledge of dentoalveolar anatomy and extractions, implants, orthognathic surgery, cranio-Maxillofacial trauma, temporomandibular joint disorders and surgery, benign and malignant pathology, facial reconstructive surgery, cleft lip and palate, management of medically compromised patients and cosmetic facial surgery.
Upon completion of his residency program Dr. Wagner and his family moved to Fort Lauderdale, Florida where he was Assistant Professor at Nova Southeastern University, College of Dentistry, Department Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. During his time in Florida Dr. Wagner practiced full scope Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery as well as instructing Oral Maxillofacial Residents and Dental students. He also was involved with the Cleft lip and Palate and Craniofacial Surgery Team in South Florida.
After Florida, Dr. Wagner and his family moved to California where he was offered a position at Kaiser Permanente Hospital, Department of Head and Neck Surgery, Oakland, California. This was where Dr. Wagner gained his expertise in all aspects of Oral Surgery. This was a hospital based position servicing all of Northern California, in which Dr. Wagner was able to perform over 2000 orthognathic (jaw correction) surgeries as well as facial trauma, benign tumors/cysts, cleft lip/palate, TMJ and reconstructive surgery. In addition, Dr. Wagner was again involved in the education of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Residents from Highland Hospital/University of Pacific Dental School.
Dr. Wagner was born and raised in Saskatchewan and longed to be back home. Being away from Saskatchewan provided a great experience and a wealth of knowledge but there is nothing like being home.
Dr. Wagner was fortunate to open his practice here in Regina, August 2009. Since opening his practice on Albert St., the needs of the people of Southern Saskatchewan grew and so the practice grew, and Provincial Oral Surgery relocated to a larger space in Gardiner Park. The office provides full scope of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery services which include dental implants, dental extractions, IV sedation, corrective jaw surgery (orthognathic), Maxillofacial reconstruction, Bone grafting, Obstructive Sleep Apnea surgery, TMJ surgery, and facial rejuvenation procedures (including Botox, fillers, etc.). Dr. Wagner continues his full scope practice, and travels the globe attending clinical meetings to listen to what is being done around the world with the intent to always provide the best possible care for his patients and all those that support the practice. “Without the path that led me here, I would be at a loss. In that path, there are many individuals I think of daily who are part of every decision I make, thank you! I am dedicated to my profession, and will always provide the best possible care to each individual I meet and see no matter the problem. I am open, sympathetic, and will always learn ways to serve you better.”
