Awful. He destroyed my mouth. Going to him was the worst decision I have ever made.
Birmingham , AL |
Had wisdom teeth removed and Dr. Roden provided me with all the information to prepare myself for it. He was punctual with our appointment, I was in and out in no time with no complications post surgery. What really made a difference was that later that day I received a call from him to check on how I was doing. Outstanding professional. Highly recommend.

Dr. Roden and staff took terrific care of me through a very difficult surgery! I highly recommend him to anyone! The entire staff was very accommodating and got me right in when I was having pain. Dr. Roden spent a lot of time with me trying to figure out what was going wrong, and got it right! I am happy and healed. Hopefully I don't have any more surgery soon but if I do, I will go back to Dr.Roden for sure.

I had the best experience from start to finish. I had to get my wisdom teeth removed and Dr. Roden and Heather made me feel so comfortable about the experience. They were willing to answer any questions I had (Dr. Roden even called me later on that evening to check up on me). I highly recommend Roden Oral Surgery!
