Community Support

We here at AOMS are committed to our community and our world. From outreach in our Rogue Valley home to service overseas, we strive to support those who are in need. We have contributed not only in the dental realm through time, services and equipment; we have also provided aid to local traditions and worldwide disaster situations.

Proud Sponsor

We here at AOMS love where we live. That is why we sponsor many of the events and establishments that make our community a wonderful place to be. A few of these include: the Craterian Theatre at the Collier Center for Performing Arts (, the Providence Festival of Trees ( the Britt Festival (, St. Vincent de Paul’s annual school supply drive, as well as several local youth sports organizations.

Rogue Valley Youth Football (PWFA): Many youth football teams struggle to get sponsors, meaning that they end up without sponsorship and have to ask to children to pay more to play. But, here in the Rogue Valley some of these children do not get that opportunity. But, with the sponsorship from Associates for Oral & Maxillofacial surgery, it makes it more affordable to play.

Community Service

Adopt-a-Highway: Look, Honey… Is that a bunch of convicts cleaning up the streets for required community service? Why are there little kids helping too? It isn’t criminals you see; it is AOMS staff members, along with their families, keeping our community clean. Look for us in the ditches of Central Point. 


Humanitarian Efforts

The Associates for Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery have helped victims of several disasters over the years.  Events such as September 11th 2001, The Indian Ocean Tsunami in 2005,  Hurricane Katrina in 2010, Hurricane Harvey in 2017 and the Almeda Fire in 2020 have set AOMS into action. For each of these events the doctors and staff at AOMS have donated their personal time to open the practice during a Saturday and donating all staff wages and proceeds for each day to assist victims and their families. For AOMS’s September 11th relief efforts, proceeds and wages totaling over $40,000 were donated to Rescue 5 Firefighters in New York. For the Indian Ocean Tsunami and Hurricane Katrina, proceeds and wages went to the Northwest Medical Teams for distribution. For Hurricane Harvey, our office was joined by Dr. Greg Renyer and his daughter from Corvallis and and proceeds and wages went to Direct Relief. For the Almeda Fire, proceeds and wages totaling $32,548 went to Habitat for Humanity.
