I have a large swollen/painful abscess in my lower right facial cheek area.  i have received antitbiotics for the infection.  Do i need to have it drained?  If so what type of Doctor/Dentist do you recommend?

It depends on what is the source of the infection.  Since you have antibiotics, I'm assuming you saw some kind of doctor for it.  What did they say?

Sorry.  I don't understand what symptoms you are experiencing.  You should go see a dentist or an emergency room/clinic
