Patient Testimonial

My wisdom teeth surgery was an overall great experience which is something people don't usually get to say about oral surgery! The surgery was quick, clean, and comfortable. The staff and doctor are extremely courteous and experienced. I experienced no problems whatsoever after surgery and all four extractions healed in less than a week!
