My name is Bill Deighan. I was raised in Hampden, Maine. My father, Dr. William J. Deighan Jr., started this oral surgery practice in the 1950’s.
I graduated from Bates College in Lewiston, Maine, with a BS in biology, a year after receiving my BSc in genetics and microbiology from the University College of Swansea, Wales, UK. Then I attended the University Of Pennsylvania School Of Dental Medicine in Philadelphia. After receiving a DMD from U. Penn., I completed the Oral and Maxillofacial residency program at Tufts New England Medical Center in Boston which included rotations at Carney Hospital, Boston City Hospital, and the V.A. hospital in Jamaica Plain.
I am a diplomat of the American Board of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery. I have devoted my professional career to all aspects of oral and maxillofacial surgery. To keep abreast of the latest developments in the field, I routinely attend national and local conferences and have always exceeded the annual continuing education requirements for the state of Maine. I also belong to several organizations: Penobscot Valley Dental Society, Maine Dental Association, Maine Association of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons, American Dental Association, American Association of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons, American College of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons, American Dental Society of Anesthesiology, American Trauma Society and Bangor Rotary Club. I have surgical privileges at St. Joseph Hospital in Bangor and at Maine Coast Memorial Hospital in Ellsworth.
My hobbies include: canoe racing, skiing, running, hiking, camping, hunting, tree farming and classic british motorbikes.
I live in Newburgh with Liliane, my wife of almost 30 years, our 2 dogs and 2 cats. Our three sons, Angus, Patrick and Andrew, also live in Maine.
