William Magee, III, MD, DDS, brings a unique, global background to the Division of Plastic and Maxillofacial Surgery at Childrens Hospital Los Angeles, which he joined in 2008. Dr. Magee is the oldest son of the founders of Operation Smile and was exposed to the challenges of children with craniofacial anomalies at an early age. Since he was 13, he has assisted Operation Smile teams all over the world in various roles.
Dr. Magee is certified by The American Board of Plastic Surgery. He earned his dental degree at the University of Maryland and then went on to obtain his medical degree at George Washington University. His introduction to Los Angeles began in 2001 when he entered the combined Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Program at the University of Southern California, where he has remained. After completing the six-year program, he focused his attention in Craniofacial and Pediatric Plastic Surgery at Childrens Hospital Los Angeles.
Dr. Magee offers an energy and drive for pediatric work that extends beyond the boundaries of Los Angeles, which will help our department grow into the areas of service and education for children around the world.
