Can a certified oral surgeon work in a practice for 3 days then work doing surgery for 2 days and so own? And would they make a higher salary then a regular dentist?

    They probably could, but I’m not sure if any of them do, as they make more money at being an Oral Surgeon Specialist. I read that Oral Surgery is like the Holy Grail of dentistry. After 4 years of dental school, they have to go back and get another 5-6 years of education which includes medical school.

    yes ad no. most states if the dentist list his specialty then no. if they get get the license and not request a specialty status then yes. so if you declare your specialty withh the state then no.

    In some states he may be able to do that. However, he would make much more money by working and billing as an oral surgeon every day.

    FYI, an oral surgeon IS a dentist but being a specialist, they can only do oral surgical procedures. They are not allowed to perform general dentistry.
