Dr. Moya and his staff are competent, caring and very compassionate. He truly wants the very best outcome for all of his patients. I've had many procedures performed, and he has always taken the time to explain what will happen before, during and after. I am not always an obedient patient, but he helped me understand how my bad habits were an impediment to the healing process. I highly recommend Dr. Moya.

Moya removed my wisdom teeth. His bedside manner was atrocious and aftercare non-existent. I developed dry socket, and returned to his office several times following the surgery. Only the 4th visit did he see me - only his assistants had seen me prior. I was in excruciating pain, he walked in, insulted me, said "I told you, you should have done this when you were 14, now you're old, you should expect a bad recovery" and walked out. Despicable. Do NOT see him. Go to OMSH instead

Dr. Moya is a very gifted oral surgeon, but he is not a kind human being. He speaks condescendingly to patients frightening. On both occasions he has been rude, unkind, abrupt. He lectured our daughter and us and then proceeded to jerk our daughter's mouth open when she was unable to open it as wide as he thought it should be after surgery. His assistant tried to apologize for him. Astonishing that a man so bright and so gifted could simultaneously exhibit such lack of character.
