His last duty assignment was as the Officer in Charge of the Walter Reed Army Medical Center’s Dental Clinic and the Chief, Maxillofacial Prosthodontics. Dr. Oakes’s skills and finesse in the art of dentistry are evident throughout the multitude of patients which he treated while serving with the U.S. Army providing extensive care for our troops with an emphasis on the returning casualties. He continues to provide Prosthodontic lectures internationally, nationally, and locally and enjoys teaching general dentists about the finer points of Prosthodontics as well as Maxillofacial Prosthetics.
He is excited about being able to call the Frederick community home and looks forward to bringing his skill and expertise as a Board Certified Prosthodontist to the Frederick Dental Community.
