We were incredibly pleased with Dr. Moore, who removed our 12-year-old son's wisdom teeth. Dr. Moore is very down-to-Earth & explains things in a way we could understand, & he took plenty of time in both pre-op consultation & recovery making sure our questions were answered. We were sent home from the procedure with helpful instructions, meds, ice packs, gels, etc. to ensure that our son could comfortably recover, & we were given an assurance that we could call if we needed anything at all.
