I suffer from panic disorder and was extremely terrified of having a tooth extracted. I met with Dr. Sarka and immediately felt his compassion and willingness to listen to my irrational fears and anxiety. He reassured me and I felt that I could put my trust in his professional hands. The procedure took literally minutes and I actually giggled near the end...relieved that my heart rate was behaving and that I had chosen such a skilled Dr. The whole staff made me feel safe and I am very grateful.
Waterville, ME |
Very professional and clean office. Very well trained and helpful staff. the office is run like a well oiled machine. Now this office is truly pain free experience as well.
in Old Town, ME |
I needed to have difficult wisdom tooth removed because of the proximity to the nerve running under the tooth. After getting a snarky reception from whoever answered the phone at the Bangor area oral surgeon, I called Dr. Sarkas place and was greeted warmly and set up an appt. there. Best decision I could have made. No numbness, no swelling and it is healing well. Best Oral surgeon and staff around!! My daughter needs hers removed soon. We will travel to Dr. Sarkas for the surgery.
