Historically, oral and maxillofacial surgeons have had considerable autonomy in operating their offices. Oral and maxillofacial surgeons have had a singular history of safety, training, and success in outpatient anesthesia in their offices. However, preventable patient morbidity and mortality in private office-based surgical facilities of a variety of professions have brought increased scrutiny to the office environment. The present report describes the experiences of 3 oral and maxillofacial surgeons with 3 accrediting agencies in obtaining office accreditation and offers recommendations to be considered for the future of our specialty in terms of private office certification.
