No legitimate history of anesthesiology can exclude the contributions of American dentistry. Similarly, no history of anesthesiology in dentistry can exclude the contributions of oral and maxillofacial surgery (OMS). Many contributions of OMS to the art and science of anesthesiology have been singular, cutting edge when introduced, have stood the test of time, and have subsequently been universally incorporated into the general discipline. The process continues to this day with regard to the innovations and refinements OMS has proffered to the control of anxiety and pain. This article offers a brief review of some of these gifts.
