Finding a specialist to treat complicated medical issues in the local area can often be difficult for those living in regional towns, especially in the advanced world of dentistry.
Fortunately for residents of the Fleurieu Peninsula, they have access to the highly skilled services of Oral and Maxillofacial surgeon, Dr Davor Hribar, right at their doorstep.
While the job title may be a confusing one, the work Dr Hribar does is wide ranging and comprehensive.
“Oral & Maxillofacial surgeon are the senior specialty of dentistry, and the only dental specialty officially recognised by medicine,” he explained.
“So I specialise in the surgical management of dental implant, reconstructive jaw surgery, management of impacted teeth for removal, exposure and bonding and even transplanting teeth, aesthetic facial surgery, facial injuries, jaw-joint management, oral medicine, salivary surgery, obstructive sleep apnoea and cancer surgery.”

Normally to see a comprehensive and knowledgeable professional, regional residents would have to travel to a major city, or even interstate, on one or more occasions for consultations and follow ups.
This is not the case for patients of Dr Hribar, who enjoys treating patients locally.
“I often collaborates with local general dentists, general medical practitioners and other specialists to help provide primer treatment in the Fleurieu,” Dr Hribar said.
“This means I can predominantly consult and operate in the rooms at Victor Harbor, as well as the Fleurieu hospital. This makes it convenient to the residents, reduces costs and travelling for the patients and their family and carers.”
There are also more complex management and procedures which can not be performed locally, meaning in case of emergencies Dr Hribar uses his principle surgery in Adelaide.
He also and operates in a number of city hospitals in Adelaide as required while most major surgeries are performed at the Calvary Wakefield Hospital.
With such comprehensive and practical methods, Dr Hribar has established a very busy practice of Oral & Maxillofacial surgery.
