I met Dr Hunter a couple weeks ago. My case, I think, was a bit of challenge. He was aware of my time as well as his. He is exceptionally personable and, of course, knowledgeable. I knew I was in good hands and my experience was that this is a top-notch professional place to be. I am glad I'm in such capable hands.

Dr. Hunter is a fantastic doctor and his staff is amazing! I recently had my 3rd procedure done with him and every single time I am extremely impressed. My family members have gone to him as well for oral surgery. Dr. Hunter makes the process so easy, and explains everything. He is the best ever and his staff is so nice, comforting, and friendly. I will continue to use Dr. Hunter for everything.

Dr. Hunter has been amazing over the years. He has removed the wisdom teeth of all of my children. Now, I have need of his services and expertise. I've experienced the same high level, and quality, of service now as I experienced with my children years ago.
