I called Dr. Harrison a week ago, he was very busy, but was able to get me in for a consult, which I very much appreciated. He then wasn't sure if he could schedule me, and might have to refer me out due to how busy it was, he instead went to revisit his schedule and he fit me in the following Monday 8/10. I can only share with anyone, that Dr. Harrison was and is like a dad... He showed me so much care, thoughtfulness, and checked on me, never left me feeling like I didn't know what was going on. I would tell anyone and everyone to see him over any other dental surgeon. Absolutely wonderful, and beside manners were over the charts... His secretary Aliana was wonderful, and I can see where she gets it. She was very kind, professional and beyond. Thank you for making what was very frightful for me, to be an excellent experience.

This was my 2nd experience with Dr. Harrison-, the first was horrible, this was even worse. He was a sarcastic, rude, condescending bully. Even his assistant was embarrassed with the way he spoke to me. He will NEVER do another procedure on me.

I have been to Dr. Harrison 3 times for extractions. One of them was complicated. The root of my tooth was in my sinus cavity. Dr. Harrison not only did a wonderful job but, he is very caring about whether the patient is in pain at any point during the procedure. The office staff and his assistant are very nice too. I could have gone somewhere else where they accepted my insurance and have the tooth pulled for free. I have to pay at his office but, I like knowing that I have someone that I completely trust to do the job right.

Five strong stars for Dr. Harrison and his entire office staff! This team will be friendly, patient, and interactive with you from your first visit through all follow-ups. It was initially recommended that for my procedure I should be given anesthesia to go to sleep. Upon arriving the morning of surgery, anesthesiologist Chris was concerned at how low my blood pressure was; he persisted to take it several times and in the end, concluded that I should not be “put under“. I realized in the days afterward what an important role an anesthesiologist plays pre-surgery! He had to make a serious decision, and I’m so thankful that he was paying such close attention! Thank you Chris ?? With dialogue between Dr. Harrison, Chris and myself, we decided to go forward with the procedure with just a local anesthetic. Dr. Harrison was patient and gentle in his work, and the procedure went flawlessly. Thanks again to a great team with great teamwork!

Dr. Harrison is the nicest doctor I’ve ever met!! He was so informative during the initial consult and very easy to talk to. On the actual day of surgery everything went so smoothly. He is so caring and makes sure you are comfortable throughout the procedure. His dental assistants were also top notch. Would 100% recommend going here. I had my four wisdom teeth extracted 5 days ago and never had any swelling. Pain hasn’t been more than a 2 out of 10. His post-op instructions are very clear too. Receptionists were awesome. Loved my experience!!

I was understandably nervous for my appointment for a tooth extraction. Dr. Harrison was a delight and made me laugh in the first moment. He put me at ease immediately and his expertise in dentistry was apparent right away. I remember thinking to myself - this man is in the right profession. The procedure literally took 5 minutes and I was on my way. Thank you Dr. Harrison. It was a pleasure meeting you!

Quite awful customer service. I went to Dr. Harrison's office in Oct'18 for getting a assessment for Apico procedure. I found out treatment options. Then just to be sure that my insurance would cover all the costs, I requested that they get a pre-approval. I was told by the doctor and the front office person that they can do that. I was told that they will call me as soon as insurance gets back to them. 4 weeks passed and I didnt hear anything from them. So I call the Drs' office. First, the fro

Dr. Harrison was very funny and made the experience of getting my impacted wisdom tooth out much better than I expected. He did it extremely quickly and I was able to eat the next day. I would recommend him to anyone. The office is adorable and everyone in there is very nice.

I was very nervous about my surgery but Dr. Harrison made the whole experience very easy for me. His kindness and compassionate demeanor put me at ease. His staff is very professional , kind and friendly. I felt well taken care of. I would highly recommend him to anyone . The office is easy to get to and has ample parking. Very comfortable and very clean. Dr. Harrison also followed up with phone calls to check on me, which I appreciated.

Dr. Harrison is professional, warm, and courteous. He is genuinely considerate of his patients as individuals and thoroughly explained each part of my surgery. His team was equally as welcoming and considerate of my own personal needs.

This man and his whole office is nothing short of amazing. From start to finish I was reassured and so well taken care of. I needed 7 extractions including my wisdom teeth, I did a lot of research when I found Dr Harrison. I didn't swell at all and my pain was a minimum considering how much work I had done. He made sure to check on me through out my recovery and treated me like his own family. Such a great crew he has created to work with. He is the best oral surgeon in RI hands down.

Had my top two wisdom teeth taken out yesterday with just a local anesthetic. Dr Harrison made me feel comfortable and was extremely nice and friendly. Whole procedure took 15 minutes and I was in no pain after the novocaine wore off. Highly highly recommend. Also recommend for people who don't have dental insurance or their dental doesn't cover it like me. His price beat every price I was quoted at!
