Q: What is one thing patients should know about MOSA?

A: We are the state’s oldest and largest Oral and Maxillofacial Facial Surgery practice. Over 52 years, MOSA has expanded from two full-time surgeons to 13. All have trained at the highest-rated surgical programs in the world. MOSA is proud to have five— Malini Iyer, Lisa Cohen, Mary Carter Robinson, Sarah Naghibi and Payal Verma— on our surgical team. MOSA is at the forefront of technology, using CT scans to perform computer-generated guided implant placements and “Teeth-in-a-Day.” We will soon introduce “Robotic Surgery.”

Q: What woman inspires you and why?

A: Ruth Bader Ginsberg was a true trailblazer who broke the glass ceiling in a meaningful way. Her capacity to visualize complex situations, perseverance in achieving her goals and commitment to enduring excellence in her chosen field have been a guiding light.

Q: What motivates and inspires you?

A: The whole process of meeting patients, understanding their concerns and addressing them is rewarding. At MOSA, we strive to connect with patients on a personal level, helping us achieve an overall holistic experience and better outcomes. Each day is successful when I see patients bringing their family and friends back to MOSA Bethesda for treatment. The trust in our practice is priceless.

MOSA’s award-winning doctors offer the full scope of Oral and Maxillofacial surgery. With eight locations serving six separate counties in Maryland and D.C., patients can schedule appointments at their convenience. Among its many accolades, MOSA, which has successfully performed more than 1 million surgical procedures, is consistently recognized as a “Top Dentist”/“Top Doctor” by Washingtonian.
