An oral surgeon who works in the trauma section at a hospital would probably help anyone who has sustained an injury to their head. Oral surgeons have 4-6 years additional training after dental school to learn how to perform surgeries in the head and neck. Of course, oral surgeons are best known for pulling wisdom teeth, but their knowledge and experience is much larger.
