Where Patient Comfort and Care Comes First

Founded in 1972, Boulder OMS is the oldest and most established oral and maxillofacial surgery practice in Poway. Offering such services as dental implants, wisdom tooth extraction, corrective jaw surgery, Botox and filler, rhinoplasty, and dental aveolar surgery, Dr. Albert Lin and Dr. Robert T. Gramins have a high standard of care and a track record of exceptional patient results. “Our motivation is to be the most trusted and respected oral and maxillofacial surgery practice in San Diego,” stated Kelly Zielinski, Marketing and Public Relations Director for Boulder OMS.

Dr. Lin attended the University of Illinois for his doctorate dental degree. In 1998, he completed his oral and maxillofacial surgery residency at Northwestern University Medical Center. “Dr. Lin is extensively trained in orthognathic reconstructive jaw surgery, facial trauma surgery, cosmetic facial surgery, and advanced dental implant surgery,” stated Zielinski. “He practices the full and expanded scope of oral and maxillofacial surgery.” Dr. Lin is board certified as a diplomate by the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and has also served as a board director, vice president, and president for the California Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons. “On the national level, Dr. Lin served as a state delegate for the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons and is actively involved to ensure that the specialty itself stays current and relevant to healthcare,” added Zielinski.

Dr. Gramins graduated in 1998 from Northwestern University with his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree. “While in dental school, Dr. Gramins was awarded a United States Navy academic scholarship and was commissioned as an officer in the Dental Corps,” noted Zielinski. Following dental school, Dr. Gramins completed a general practice residency at Great Lakes Naval Hospital and fulfilled his military service in Southern California at Twentynine Palms Marine Corps Base. Later, he completed his oral and maxillofacial surgery residency at Loyola University Medical Center in Chicago. He is a fellow of the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, is Board Certified as a Diplomate by the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, and was selected to sit on the Cosmetic Surgery Credentialing board for the State of California, for which he has also served as president.

Both doctors are highly involved with local charities including The Oral Cancer Foundation, Las Patronas, The Ronald McDonald House, and The March of Dimes. Additionally, Boulder OMS has been selected as the Official Oral and Facial Surgery practice of the San Diego Gulls for a second season.

What makes the practice so successful, explained Zielinski, is not only the doctors’ commitment to the community but to each patient’s individual needs as well. “Dr. Lin and Dr. Gramins take the time to understand a patient’s needs and offer services to deliver optimal results.”
