Why Choose Plastic and Oral Maxillofacial Surgery at CHKD?

At CHKD, you’ll find the region’s only plastic and oral and maxillofacial surgery program designed exclusively for children. We’ve recently expanded our staff to provide even more treatments and procedures to address all plastic and oral needs from infancy to adulthood. Our team of experts knows any malformation or injury can have lasting physical and emotional impact on a child, so we have a multidisciplinary team to treat everything from the routine to the most complex conditions, allowing your child to enjoy a normal, healthy future.

Our program offers world-class, comprehensive care from a wide array of specialists. Recently our program welcomed a new oral and maxillofacial surgeon, who expanded our capabilities to include more advanced surgeries. Jaw surgery, also referred to as orthognathic surgery, can correct cleft palates, trauma to the face, abnormal growths, and temporomandibular joint pain. We’ve also added a new plastic surgeon with leading-edge, innovative treatments for migraines, hand injuries, and craniofacial reconstruction.

Every face is unique and every treatment plan at CHKD is as well. We are dedicated to ongoing research into a wide range of conditions affecting the mouth, jaw, face, and neck.

We specialize in:

Knowledge, Experience and Compassion

Dr. George Hoerr (rhymes with “care”) leads our pediatric plastic surgery team and has more than 20 years of experience, education and training. But he also has something equally important that can’t be taught: a great rapport with children and parents. His unique combination of warmth and expertise puts his patients and their parents at ease.

Dr. Jesus Gil B. "Jegit" Inciong joined CHKD's team in April of 2014. Dr. Inciong received his medical degree from the University of the Philippines, where he also completed a residency in plastic surgery. After finishing a second residency in plastic surgery at the University of Southern California, Dr. Inciong completed fellowships in plastic surgery at the University of Miami and microsurgery and craniofacial/maxillofacial surgery at Eastern Virginia Medical School.

Dr. Inciong has been a longtime volunteer for Operation Smile, performing cleft lip and palate repairs all over the world and is board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.

To round out the plastic surgery team, Dr. E. Weston Santee joined the practice in August 2020, expanding the current conditions treated to include those of both oral and facial surgery. Dr. Santee earned his medical degree and completed his residency at the University of Michigan. He then completed his fellowship at El Paso Children's Hospital where he specifically focused on cleft and craniofacial surgery. 

Their services are backed by CHKD’s renowned surgery program, the region's only surgery program dedicated exclusively to children.

    Insurance and Referral Information

    If you have an HMO, you must: 

    • Get a referral from your child's primary care physician before you call to make an appointment.
    • Make sure your referral has not expired. Many are good for only 30 days, so check yours before you come to your appointment. If your referral has expired, call your primary care physician and explain your situation. In most cases, your primary care physician will provide a new or extended referral.
    • Bring the referral with you to the appointment. If you do not have a referral, or if the referral you have is expired, your HMO will not pay for your appointment.

    If you have fee-for-service insurance or a PPO, you do not need a physician's referral to make an appointment.

    We offer in-depth information about insurance in our billing and insurance section.
