From the moment you walk in the door the whole staff could NOT be any better. The care does not end when your visit is over, they even kept in touch to make sure i was well after the procedure. Thank you to the staff and to Dr Falender himself.

Jen - 5 stars Thank you for knowing and anticipating what was coming next. Dr. Falender - 5 stars - You made me feel at ease even though you knew you were going to hurt me for a minute or two (the humor helped)

My first appointment was for a go over for the tooth extraction it took longer that first day than when I went in and actually had it pulled. It was fast and done in a professional. Its been a week and I feel better today. Was some bruising and swollen the first couple of days.

I would greatly recommend Dr. Falender and his staff for wisdom and teeth removal. The entire experience from setting the appointment to the necessary extractions was caring and professional. This experience has lead for not one, but three family members to come to the Indianapolis Oral Surgery & Dental Implant Center for our various dental needs.

Dental work, especially surgery, is never pleasant. Dr. Falender and his staff were very professional, courteous and accurate with the quote I was given for treatment plan on my initial consultation visit. I would definitely return if I should need further treatment and highly recommend his office.
Made me feel very comfortable even with me hating dentist. First dentist ever to make me feel comfy for any dental work needed.
