Recently saw Dr. Gaus for tooth extractions. I didn't want to proceed w/ implants as I have difficulty getting numb & wanted to make sure he could get me numb. He did not like me asking questions. His demeanor was rude & rough. My heart was racing so I asked him to take a break. He did not like this. I told him I thought he was not respecting my anxiety & HE ASKED ME TO LEAVE. I was part numb, on nitrous. I have been a physician for more than 20 years. This man is not a professional.

Dr. Gaus was very nice! I got my top 2 wisdom teeth out and I opted out of anesthesia. He pulled the teeth in under 30 seconds and I was done! Very nice staff and clean facility.

Dr Gaus treated my 11 year old son. My son needed 6 teeth pulled. Dr Gaus was the best. He put my son at ease quickly. My son had the teeth out with just Novacaine. My son said it didn't even hurt! I know adults who can't go to the dentist without a Valium because of past trauma. This was the greatest experience. If all dentists were as good with kids as Dr Gaus, no one would need Valium for a dentist appointment.

Not only is he rough and rude- telling me at one point you shouldn't frown or you will need Botox but he proceeded with the numbing before I was calm and had any level of nitrous in me. Then while I was tearful and brimming with anxiety all but turned the nitrous off for 15-20 minutes. When he returned I told him I was not feeling the nitrous. He said we will bump it up now and wait a minute but he didn't wait. He maybe waited 15 seconds before saying open shoving a bite block in and wrenc

My main complaint is that Dr. Gaus was very rude during the initial consultation and again while I was still under the effects of anesthesia post-surgery.
