I've seen Dr. Cox for over a span of twenty years and he is always the first person I think of when oral surgery is of consideration. Dr. Cox has great chair side manner and pleasant disposition that puts me at ease. And, my procedures have been successful and pain free.

Dr. Cox has served my family for the past five years. I have trusted him with all three of my children. He and his staff are professional and do a great job. They walked us through every procedure and have the process as smooth as possible. I recommend Dr. Cox without reservation.

My son had a facial laceration over his eye and Dr. Cox and his office were very quick to response and get us in right in. He was very professional and explained exactly what he was doing to ease my child's fears. The following day (on Dr. Cox's day off) he called to follow-up an see how my son was doing. I would highly recommend Dr. Cox to anyone I know.
