Dr. Atkins' bio

This content was provided by Dr. Atkins "Dr. Aaron Atkins was born and raised in Lubbock, Texas. From a young age, Dr. Atkins knew he wanted to be an oral surgeon. His curiosity started with dentistry, but after shadowing a dentist in town, he realized his interests were geared more towards oral surgery. He felt that oral surgery was the perfect combination of dentistry and medicine, which made it an easy choice for him to pursue a career in it. Dr. Atkins has been practicing full-scope oral and maxillofacial surgery since 2015. Patient comfort and safety are the focus of his patient care philosophy. He wants patients to understand that the treatment he provides them is the safest it can be, and it's the same treatment he would provide to his own family members. When patients come into the office, it's important to Dr. Atkins that they experience the comfortable and laid-back environment. To Dr. Atkins, the most rewarding part of being an oral surgeon is the interaction with patients and having the opportunity to identify and treat their oral health problems."

Dr. Aaron Atkins removed my wisdom teeth in May. He was very confident and comforting about the entire procedure. I've never had surgery in my life and he made me feel like it was just a regular thing. Atkins was easily approachable and I can easily say I'll come back for any oral needs I have in...more
