Dr. Ester A. Salvador, a board certified plastic surgeon with more than 25 years of experience in the field of reconstructive surgery, is a resident of Bentonville, Arkansas and practices as an oral and maxillofacial surgeon. Prior to his fellowship training, he was a staff surgeon in the reconstructive surgical unit in Little Rock, Arkansas. This early exposure to the trauma of burn and trauma scenes, as well as an interest in the pathology of trauma and the physiological basis of disease processes provides him with an understanding of the need for comprehensive treatment for all forms of addiction. Because of this, Dr. Salvador is uniquely qualified to provide expert counsel and guidance in the areas of alcohol and drug addiction, bipolar and manic disorder, eating disorders, and psychiatric services.

For this reason, many residents of Bentonville, Arkansas find themselves suffering from symptoms of withdrawal from prescribed medication, while facing harassment from law enforcement officials who are enforcing the city’s tough-on-drug laws.
