Meet The Surgeon
Dr. Thomas Schlieve DDS, MD is a board certified Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon with advanced fellowship training in Oral / Head and Neck Oncologic Surgery and the current Graduate Program Director at Parkland Memorial Hospital.
His clinical practice focuses on the surgical treatment of diseases of the head and neck including oral and tongue cancers, benign and malignant tumors such as ameloblastoma or osteosarcoma, salivary gland tumors, and a jaw bone disease known as osteonecrosis of the jaw.
Dr. Schlieve was born and raised in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and obtained his undergraduate education with the University of Wisconsin, completing a BS in biology. Following his undergraduate studies, he was educated in both dentistry (at Marquette University) and medicine (at LSU Health Sciences Center in Shreveport School of Medicine).
Dr. Schlieve completed a four year residency in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and Internship in General Surgery at the University of Illinois at Chicago Medical Center before continuing his training in an accredited Oral / Head and Neck Oncologic Surgery Fellowship at the University of Tennessee Medical Center and Cancer Institute.
A graduate of the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and a Fellow of the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, Dr. Schlieve has lectured both nationally and internationally. He has authored multiple scientific articles and text book chapters in the field of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and participates in community-wide outreach efforts to raise awareness of oral cancer. As a research scientist and surgeon, Dr. Schlieve studies the same diseases as he treats in the operating room. His current research efforts are focused on diseases of the head and neck including jaw osteonecrosis and oral cancer.
Dr. Schlieve offers exceptional skill in the diagnosis and treatment of oral, salivary, and jaw diseases and adheres to a strict code of ethics. Working at a prestigious and world-renowned university, Dr. Schlieve participates in ground breaking clinical trials, teaches future surgeons, and leads continuing education courses for practicing physicians.
When not in his clinic or operating room, Dr. Schlieve enjoys spending time with his family, traveling, and reading. I have participated in charity events for the Oral Cancer Foundation and can be found dining at many of Dallas' great restaurants or watching his favorite Texas / Dallas sports teams.
