About Dr. Relle
Dr. Relle was attracted to oral and maxillofacial surgery — jaw surgery specifically — while in dental school. Oral surgeon mentors during dental school inspired him with the profound impact that corrective jaw surgery had on their patient’s quality of life. After residency, he spent the first 23 years of his career as a staff oral surgeon in a large hospital-based group practice where he had an opportunity to gain broad experience in many disciplines of major oral and maxillofacial surgery. Over 10 years ago he chose to move into private practice and to focus on corrective jaw surgery which has always been his passion. Dr. Relle sincerely enjoys getting to know his patients and collaborating with practitioners throughout the dental and medical profession in delivering the highest possible standard of care.
