Patient Review

I have been a Surgical Nurse for 22 years, an RN for 37 years and worked in a local Hospital for over 40 years. EVERY TIME I get to work WITH Dr. Andrews or Dr. Atwood and his staff, it's a wonderful experience. That being stated, my son recently had to have some decayed teeth he needed removed and I could think of NO OTHER SURGEON(S) OR STAFF that I would want to handle this situation. They are THE PREMIER PRACTICE for this and other more difficult maxillofacial and oral surgeries. If you want the BEST CARE for you or your loved ones, this is who you go to. They are simply THE BEST!!

Patient Review

I waited two years after learning about the problems my impacted wisdom teeth were causing to have them removed, partly out of the anxiety of having the procedure done. The staff scheduled my appointment quickly and when I arrived, the wait time was basically nothing. They described the procedure to me before hand and answered any last minute questions I had before starting the iv sedation. After the procedure (as I'm told by my boyfriend who was driving me home) they explained aftercare instructions to both of us and made sure he was comfortable before sending us on our way. The next day, I was called just to make sure I was doing alright and had no questions or complications. I would recommend this procedure here to friends and family.
