No complains about the doctor. The billing department is incompetent. They don't verify with the insurances if your procedure will be covered or not. They tell you one thing in order to convince you to get the procedure done. We wanted to make sure how much our insurance will cover for the procedure before actually going for it. We were told our insurance will pay the 80% of the cost, two weeks later they call saying the insurance did not pay for it. Never going back to them.

My experience was great. They take good care of you. I highly recommend if you are having oral problems then you should go there.
in Upper Marlboro, Md |
My experience with the staff and Dr. Russell were both professional and comforting. I would definitely return, if future oral surgery was ever needed.
in Fort Washington, MD |
I appreciate their concern. My blood pressure was elevated and they were very concerned. Made me feel I was in caring and professional hands. I get very anxious at the doctors office and helped releive my anxiety.
in Clinton MD |
I would like to give Dr. Rusell and her staff the highest grade. I had a wisdom tooth that had a deep cavity and the nerve exposed. I was given an appointment that meet my needs and schedule. Dr. Rusell was very professional and funny. I was put at ease, the tooth was removed with no pain. I would highly recommend Dr. Rusell. James Monteiro

in Upper Marlboro, MD |
Comfortable office, friendly staff, easy procedure...the Dr. followed up three times with me to make sure everything was going well. It was really nice.
Silver Spring, MD |
Never. Completely un-professional. Dr. Sharon Russell conducted herself in a defensive manner after not extracting my daughter's 3 wisdom teeth and my daughter complained of the pain she was in. I really would love to use other choice words, but hopefully you get my drift. The staff were very pleasant and handled her rude behavior.
Doylestown, PA |
This office is very professional and they did an awesome job extracting my wisdom teeth. I would reccomend anybody to come here.
in Oxon Hill, MD |
Dr. Russell and her staff were beyond outstanding. My son was dealing with TMJ concerns and we were referred to her by our dentist. I did go in skeptical thinking and expecting the worse and not knowing what my son would have to endure but from the initial consultation to the very end we were treated with the utmost respect, professionalism, courtesy, and consideration. My son loved her ethics and I would definitely recommend her.
in Largo, MD |
The MD Oral Surgery Group and Dr. Sharon Russell did an excellent job extracting my wisdom teeth. They were professional, had great bedside manner, explained procedures and treatment well, and were very gentle and fast. I woke up from sedation asking if we were just about to get started (that's how good I felt afterwards). No swelling or bruising, and I recovered quite well. I highly recommend this practice, and am happy to be able to support a local business, who is committed to excellence.

Dr. Russell and her team are the most professional and caring team anyone could ask for. The service was quick and the utmost professional. I had four wisdom teeth extracted, and she took her time with the service, making sure I can handle the pain of the injections and removal. Additionally, her staff insured I was in the car safely. Every moment of procedure was professional and excellent period.
in Fredericksburg, VA |
Dr. Russell goes above and beyond what normal doctors do. She has called me after hours to update me on biopsy results from oral surgery and assisted in getting me follow up appointments to complete my treatment. I totally recommend Dr. Russell to any new patients based on dedication and professionalism.

Dr. Russell is an amazing dentist. She is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about dentistry. She makes each patient feel comfortable and less anxious about receiving dental work. Her staff is professional, amiable and pleasant, which allows every patient to receive the utmost best of professional care. I felt like I was in a spa when I went to have my wisdom teeth extracted, because the atmosphere was so serene and tranquil. I felt so blessed to have her as my oral surgeon. She's great!

Dr. Russell is an amazing physician ! I am pleased with the way Dr. Russell has treated our family. I found her to be very professional and knowledgeable. She takes her time to explain any questions you may have ! I found her according to location, but I am very happy to met someone that cares as if I am one of her family member. Dr. Russell doesn't rush to conclusions (like others to just get paid). Most of all, she will go above and beyond to make sure that we are satisfied every visit !!!
in Clinton, MD |
Dr. Russell was very professional and took time to explain the dental process and surgical procedure needed for our son. The office is very calming which helped my son get through the surgery. Dr. Russell called to check on my son after the surgery and to make sure everything was going well and to see if we had any questions.

OMG TO MOSG!!! I normally don't write comments on any purchases or services that I receive (good or bad), but this one deserves it! I have a 37 year old son with developmental disabilities who have a severe gagging reflex and fear of the dentist. Last year he was diagnosed with a tooth abscess and was required to go to an oral surgeon to have 2 teeth extracted. I've taken him to several dentists and just could not get him scheduled for different reasons. This am he woke up with severe swelli

When I arrived for my wisdom teeth surgery on 1/22/16 I'd have to admit I was extremely nervous. So nervous that when I was hooked up to the monitor it was beeping out of control. Well I got through the surgery in about 30 minutes (fast right?). I wouldn't have been able to go through with even such a minor surgery if it weren't for Dr.Sharon and her amazing God gifted team!. Everyone from the receptionist to the nurse whom assisted throughout my surgery made me feel sooooooo comfortable. Than

I visited Dr. Russell for a wisdom tooth extraction. The entire experience was wonderful (and who says that about a tooth extraction...LOL!). Dr Russell and her staff were extremely kind and professional. I would highly recommend Dr. Russell and her practice to anyone in need.
Everyone was very helpful!
in Glenn Dale Md |
I had to get a tooth extraction and was somewhat fearful of having this procedure done. The general office manger came in and explained the procedure step by step including the insurance coverage and what wasn't. Dr. Russell was so gentle her voice was so calm that I was assured after fifteen minutes in the dentist chair that there would be no pain. Dr. Russell's entire staff was so very kind and professional I would recommend anyone that need oral surgery of any kind to come visit her first.
