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."

Surgeon did not show me exactly what tooth he needs to extract. Only showed xray and told me what number. Surgeon needed to know exactly where gum infection was, applied topical numbing agent and inserted cones in area. I was in pain and doctor was just telling me to relax and calm down. Insensitive to level of pain. Does not seem to be concerned about patients comfort level. Did not apply more topical agent. This is a concern for moving forward with surgery. May return to previous dentist in other location who was gentler and more concerned and made sure area was numb to perform procedure.
