Smart and competent... Dr. Watson did a wonderful job with me. My general dentist referred me due to my rare brittle bone disorder and a need for an extraction. I was very impressed that Watson had experience with my disorder. He treated me very well. He was kind, patient, explaining every step to me. I felt very comfortable and safe while under his care. I will return to his practice and recommend him to friends and family needing oral surgery. Thank you Dr. Watson!
Thank you for your kind words, LaParisienne! We are so pleased you had a great experience with us and that we were able to help you feel better. Hope you have a wonderful day!

Where do I begin, Dr. Watson was so great with my 73 years old mother. He made her feel comfortable which took away her anxiety of having a total extraction. He was very patient and kind. I would recommend him to anyone needing oral surgery.
Thank you for the kind words, Michelle! We're happy to hear you had a great experience with us.

Dr. Watson is a really professional professional. At first I thought his demeanor to be starch and cold but that is not the case. He became concerned, warm, understanding and patient about my fear of being in a dental chair. He explained procedure thoroughly before and during procedure. I would return as his patient when necessary. I have no reservations on recommending him to any others who have dental phobias. Total office atmosphere is friendly.
Thank you for the kind words, Karen! We are pleased you had a great experience with us and that we were able to ease your anxieties. Hope you have a wonderful day!

Dr. Watson was recommended to me by my dentist , who saw a spot on my tounge, that was worth a second set of eyes. Going to an oral surgeon for a spot on your tounge is scary enough, it helped me a lot that Dr Watson is so NICE ! I loved his personality right away! Very much a people person. Also very, very professional, the perfect doctor for my scary moment. Dr. Watson just has a great spirit about him, and has an ability to make you feel " unburdened " for a moment. Who doesn't need that?
Thank you for your kind words, Sandi! We are so pleased you had a great experience with Dr. Watson. Hope all is well. Happy Holidays!

Where do I start? Dr. Watson is a incredibly friendly and super cool surgeon. I'm currently in the process of getting a tooth implanted, and I feel completely safe and comfortable in his care. After the first surgery for the procedure, Dr. Watson called to make sure I was doing well. He really cares for his patients and even makes the process of administrating sedation a blast (very important if you despise needles like myself)! Overall, I highly recommend him and definitely have no complaints.

As soon as Dr Watson entered the room I felt automatically comfortable with him, he was so warm & friendly. The day I had my tooth extracted I was alittle nervous about how uncomfortable it was going to feel afterwards. Dr Watson numbed my mouth just enough without over numbing it, I felt no pain whatsoever, and it took him literally a minute to remove my tooth, with very little bleeding, I never had to fill my pain prescription. The night of my surgery Dr Watson called my home to see how I was

Dr. Watson is a outstanding surgeon and caring individual. He removed both of my grandchildren wisdom teeth. He did an excellent job of putting them at ease about the procedure during their first visit. Each procedure went went very well and my grandchildren were very pleased. I was very impressed with Dr. Watson and in need of oral surgery myself. Dr. Watson was my first choice to perform my surgery based on my total satisfaction of the treatment of my grandchildren.
