About Me

"As an oral and maxillofacial surgeon it is rewarding to build the foundation on which the general dentist can restore the patient to normal form and function; then completing the process with facial esthetic procedures."

This was probably the best experience you could have when it comes to getting a tooth pulled. I was super worried it was going to be a really unpleasant experience but he made it as pleasant as possible.

The dentist and assistant talked to me the entire time to make sure I was comfortable. The dentist even told jokes to calm me down. I experienced no pain besides the needle prick but there was numbing gel applied first so it wasnt that bad. For the first time I was not in a lot of pain from a tooth extraction after the medicine wore off. The dentist and the entire staff did an excellent job.
