Dr Gift is THE BEST oral surgeon. I had all teeth extracted and it went perfectly. Not one problem. And he is compsssionate and a good communicator. I was in great hands. Sharon Tampa,Fl

I absolutely hate dentist, I've always been super nervous. But when it comes to Dr. Gift, he truly is amazing! I had to have 4 wisdom teeth pulled and a molar. I was put too sleep and the whole procedure took about 30 minutes, not even. Dr. Gift called me the night of the surgery to check on me. As well as a nurse did the next morning. I never swelled up or had any dry sockets. I highly recommend this Dr and his staff, they all were truly amazing! Office was super nice too! Loved this place!

I just had oral surgery to remove 3 wisdom teeth on Friday February 5, 2016 and I was a nervous wreck before. The staff was very caring and made sure that I was OK. The next day, I received a follow up call from Dr Gift himself to check on me and make sure I was doing OK. That was awesome service and I would definitely recommend him to others. I have always been afraid of the dentist and Dr Gift and his staff made my experience the best. Thank you all so much. -Felicia
