Irving-based U.S. Oral Surgery Management (USOSM) – a specialty management services company that exclusively serves oral and maxillofacial surgeons – has inked a new partnership with Erickson Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery. The oral and maxillofacial surgery (OMS) practice is located in Carol Stream, near Chicago, Illinois. It is the company’s first partner practice in the state. Founded in 2017, USOSM is the oldest and largest company of its kind, and it now has partner practices spanning 21 states.
“We’re excited to announce our first partnership in Illinois, and we’re honored that it is with Erickson Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery,” said Richard Hall, USOSM president and CEO. “Dr. Erickson and his team are dedicated to providing their patients with the highest standards of comprehensive and compassionate care, and they go the extra mile to make their patients feel relaxed and comfortable. These are characteristics we highly value and we’re excited to support.”
As its new partner, USOSM will provide Erickson Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery with “behind-the-scenes” support services. Like all of USOSM’s partner practices, Erickson Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery will retain complete clinical autonomy, continuing to focus on patient care.
Erickson Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery is led by Mark F. Erickson, DDS, a board-certified oral and maxillofacial surgeon. Dr. Erickson offers a full scope of oral and maxillofacial procedures from dental implants, bone grafting and wisdom teeth removal to orthognathic surgery and diagnosing and treating facial injuries. Dr. Erickson is actively involved with a number of professional organizations, lectures nationally and internationally, and holds certifications in advanced cardiac life support and pediatric advanced life support.
Dr. Erickson earned his bachelor’s degree from the University of Washington and his dental degree from the University of Washington School of Dentistry. He completed a general practice residency at Mount Zion Hospital in San Francisco and his OMS residency at Northwestern University of Chicago, where he served as the chief resident of the OMS program.
“After evaluating the advantages of partnering with USOSM, including the infrastructure they have assembled to support their partner practices, as well as their elite oral and maxillofacial surgery partners, there was never a question as to what was and is the best course for my practice,” said Dr. Erickson.
A shared services organization, USOSM collaborates with premier oral and maxillofacial surgeons to offer a partnership solution for continued and accelerated practice success. USOSM provides operational, marketing and administrative support services, reinvests resources, and applies best practices to improve clinical and financial performance and produce steadier, more profitable growth for all.
