Oral Surgeon in Upper Marlboro MD
Meet Sharon S. Russell DDS
Diplomate of the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery
Dr. Russell is a board-certified oral and maxillofacial surgeon. A specialist in dental implants, wisdom tooth removal, and sedation dentistry, Dr. Russell obtained her doctorate degree, graduating with high honors, from the prestigious Howard University School of Dental Medicine in Washington, D.C.
She further advanced her career in the field of dentistry and medicine and obtained advanced training as an oral and maxillofacial surgeon from Howard University/Howard University Hospital. Dr. Russell has received numerous awards for her studies and academic achievements during her dentistry and oral surgery training.
Dr. Russell’s practice, The Maryland Oral Surgery Group (MOSG), is the first, state-of-the-art oral surgery spa in Prince Georges County. Patients will feel at ease and relaxed with the sounds of relaxing waterfalls, the aroma of lit candles, and scents of lavender while receiving their dental care.
Dr. Russell’s concept was developed as a direct result of working with patients for more than twenty years and witnessing the fears of patients firsthand. She knew something else in conjunction with inhalation and intravenous anesthetics was needed in an oral surgery environment to help patients feel as calm as possible. That “something else” was a warm, soothing, spa-like environment with friendly, pleasant staff. Come experience our tranquil, serene environment in a spa-like setting and you will always remember us for your oral surgery needs!
Dr. Russell’s compassion and commitment to excellence while providing optimal patient care make her a valued asset in the dental community. During her free time, she enjoys reading, running, and spending time with her five children.
