Dr. Gross is a wonderful doctor. He treated me with a lot of respect, which I so much appreciated. He does great work and explains everything. Will definitely be back.
in Athens, TN |
Very friendly group of people. Probably the best experience in oral surgery I’ve had! Would recommend this office and Dr Gross to anyone!
in Knoxville, TN |
Although I had known Dr. Gross all my life, I had never had a need for an oral surgeon until now. I contacted his Maryville office and set up an appointment to pull a cracked tooth that I had been having problems with for about three weeks. I went for my appointment today and couldn't have been more satisfied with the results. They got me in right away and Dr. Gross and staff couldn't have been more friendly or professional. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Foothills Oral Surgery to anyone.

in Knoxville,TN |

in Athens, TN |
Dr.Gross was a very nice doctor. He explained everything clearly so I could understand the procedure without any concerns. The staff were also very warm and welcoming. They made sure I was comfortable before and after the surgery. I would definitely recommend the facility to anyone who is looking for a oral surgeon to remove their wisdom teeth
in Loudon, TN |
Dr. Dwayne did an outstanding job in insuring I was comfortable and ready for the extraction. It took 3 "hits" to get it totally numbed, but the result was as expected with a pro. The staff and Dr. were all lite and fun to joke with and learning of Dwayne's Army background gave me even more confidence in his attention to detail.
in Lenoir City, TN |
Everything went so smoothly!
in Loudon, Tn. |
Dr. Gross was very thorough in explaining about the implants. He was very concerned about the fact that I take warfarin to thin my blood and request a recent tpi before he made any incisions to the gum. In my opinion, Dr. Dwayne Gross is very professional, caring and patient. Besides being left-handed, he's a very sweet person.
in Athens Tennessee |

Dr. Gross made my teen feel very much at ease, so that she wasn't as nervous about having her wisdom teeth removed. He was very informative and caring!!
in Lenoir City, TN |
I had an implant put in and was dreading it. Dr. Gross seems so laid back and easy going and it just put me at ease. He told me everything he was doing until I was asleep. He came in twice while I was in recovery and made sure I was ok to go before they released me. The whole office staff is so friendly. I would defiantly recommend friends and family to go see him.
