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."

I would have rather had someone else do my surgery! He was hitting my other three teeth in my mouth with the instruments he was using to take our my tooth. I would have rather been put to sleep for this surgery. I was very nervous and I started to cry and the doctor said, to me I DONT KNOW WHY YOUR CRYING! I wanted to say, because YOUR HURTING ME! However, I just sat there and wanted him to get done with my mouth! I didnt want to make him mad!
