Whether you are experiencing persistent jaw pain, would like to restore your smile with dental implants, or need your wisdom teeth removed, top dentist, Dr. Harry Y. Canter, Jr., is the oral and maxillofacial surgeon you want to see on the Eastern Shore.

As an oral and maxillofacial surgeon, Dr. Canter practices a full scope of oral and maxillofacial surgery with expertise in wisdom tooth removal, dental implant procedures, bone grafting, and facial injuries. Dr. Canter’s favorite part of his work is taking a broken, diseased or defective area and restoring it for patients, especially with dental implants and bone grafting, “because patients find the results so rewarding,” he says. Canter continues, “Growing up I had an exceptional family dentist who always demonstrated superb care and skill, and I knew I wanted to follow in his footsteps helping people feel comfortable and confident.”



Dental implants are changing the way people live. They are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. After the procedure, individuals regain the ability to eat almost anything and are pleased with the natural appearance.


Oral and maxillofacial surgeons require up to six additional years of hospital-based surgical and anesthesia training beyond their general dentistry degree. Dr. Canter earned his Doctorate of Dental Surgery from the University of Maryland School of Dentistry and completed his general practice residency at the Medical University of South Carolina. He then proceeded to Georgetown University Medical Center for his oral and maxillofacial residency. Dr. Canter is a past president of the Eastern Shore Dental Society and the Maryland Society of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons. He is a Diplomat of the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and of the National Dental Board of Anesthesiology, and a Fellow of the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons. Dr. Canter participates in various charities with donated oral and maxillofacial surgical service programs.
