Dr. Fowlkes & his staff impressed my family with the care provided our daughter in law. She was expecting our grandson at the time & had a wisdom tooth decaying under her gums making her very ill. We cannot express enough how knowledgeable he &his staff were. It was also comforting knowing that he also was a Medical Dr. along with being an Oral Surgeon. She received excellent care from this very caring physician. I would highly recommend Dr. Fowlkes to anyone needing Oral Surgery.

Dr. Fowlkes removed my daughter's wisdom teeth. He was very professional and courteous. We spent very little time in the waiting room and everything went very smoothly.

I was referred to Dr. Fowlks by my Dentist to have a wisdom tooth removed. My husband was worried sick. I opted for an extraction and not sedated with anesthesia. I was in and out of his office in about 15 minutes, very little bleeding. That evening I asked my husband if he was going to make popcorn, as our normal practice; he was shocked. I had taken off work for the extraction and really should have gone back to work the same day. I have had no pain, I didn't even fill my pain medication

I recently broke a jaw tooth and my dentist was unavailable that day. I was in extreme pain and needed immediate care, they referred me to Dr. Fowlkes. I was apprehensive at having to have a tooth extracted, must less by a strange dentist. Dr. Fowlkes was very good at explaining the procedure and did an execellent job with a difficult extraction. I highly recommend him to anyone that needs an oral surgeon.
