Diplomate of the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery

Hi. I’m Jesse Snow, a native and very proud “Mainer”. I grew up in Dover-Foxcroft and love the outdoors.  I’m so happy to be offering oral surgery services to our state.

After high school I moved to Michigan where I studied health sciences and majored in biology at Albion College.  After college I was accepted into Tufts University School of Dental Medicine and completed my dental training there in Boston.

After graduating from Tufts, I matched into a 4-year post-graduate oral and maxillofacial surgery residency at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia. Part of this residency involved training at Nemours/Alfred I. Dupont Hospital for Children, the Wilmington VA Medical Center for Veterans, as well as Thomas Jefferson University Hospital.

I am associated with the following professional organizations:

  • Diplomate of the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery
  • Fellow of the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons
  • Member Maine Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons
  • Member American Dental Association
  • Member Maine Dental Association
  • Member York County Dental Society

My wife Lily and I met in dental school and have settled happily in southern Maine.  In my spare time I enjoy downhill and backcountry skiing, snowmobiling, hiking, fly fishing, home improvement/woodworking and exploring Maine.  I also love spending time with my family in Piscataquis county.
