About | Surgical Arts Centre

Fully equipped medical facility in Missoula, Montana

Established in 1996 and located in Missoula, Montana, the Surgical Arts Centre is dedicated to helping patients across the country with a number of surgical and healthcare needs, ranging from cosmetic procedures of the face, head and neck, to non-cosmetic solutions for health problems like sleep apnea, jaw deformities, dental issues, and chronic TMJ pain.

The Surgical Arts Centre was founded by Clark O. Taylor, M.D., D.D.S. Before coming to Missoula, he founded the Institute of Facial Surgery in 1986 in Bismarck, North Dakota. In conjunction with the Medcenter One Hospital, The Institute of Facial Surgery became a nationally-recognized referral center for facial reconstructive surgery and cosmetic surgery as well as a training center for residents studying oral and maxillofacial surgery. In 1996, he expanded his practice to Missoula, and in 2004, the Surgical Arts Centre opened its doors, providing patients with a facility that treats complex facial surgical problems on an outpatient basis.

Our Facility

Converted into a medical facility in 2004, our Surgical Arts Centre is accredited by the Accreditation Association of Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC). Providing the same level of care and safety as a hospital, our facility houses the technology and amenities to help our patients through their procedures, from start to finish.

The Surgical Arts Centre is a self-contained office as well as a surgery center with a full-time anesthesiologist and nursing support staff. This configuration allows us to treat facial surgical problems on an outpatient basis at a fraction of the cost of utilizing hospitals or other outpatient surgery centers.
