Patient Comments (1)

He made my visit pleasant! He was very thorough in the explanation of how my procedure will go and he saw I was nervous as its my first time ever having to have oral surgery ( 9 teeth removed :( ) he made me laugh and reassured me that I was going to be ok. I highly recommend him!!!
