Dr. Koos is amazing! I typically don't write reviews but this doctor goes above and beyond for his patience. I had an implant done and was very nervous about the whole process. He answered all my questions. I felt very informed. He has an unbelievably good bedside manner and way with people. After my implant he called to check in on me and gave me his cell # in case of anything. This doctor is outstanding.

Dr. Koos extracted my son and daughters wisdom teeth yesterday. Dr Koos and his staff were wonderful, and very professional from the time we walked in the office until we left. Dr. Koos and his nurse were attentive to both kids. They ask the kids what kind of music they like to hear before their extractions. Dr Koos called that evening to follow up and I had a question the following day and he return my message ASAP. I would definately recommend Dr. Koos is wonderful and a compassionate O.S.

I saw Dr. Koos for my wisdom teeth extraction. The entire time Dr. Koos and his staff made me feel comfortable and informed. Him and his staff make sure you know what's going on the entire time and they are all so nice. He even gave me a call several hours after the procedure to make sure everything was going correctly. I would highly recommend Dr. Koos! He is great.

Wow I never thought I would say a tooth extraction was a great experience. I put off having this procedure done for over 2 years. In that time I had several complications with the tooth. Needless to say I was a hot mess agonizing over this. Dr Koos and his staff did a magnificent job with my extraction. My recovery was amazing. 3rd day after and no Ibuprofen, no pain, no swelling. A huge Thank You to Dr. Koos, Jasmine, Eddie, Nancy and 3 others whose names I cannot remember.

After my wisdom teeth extraction, Dr. Koos is the only surgeon I would suggest. I have never had good experiences with dental work, and I must say from the consultation through to the surgery he made me feel nothing short of relaxed and confident. I was very nervous before the procedure, and he took the time to explain everything thoroughly until I was comfortable. He really does care. He's really gentle too. I had minimal to no swelling and was off of pain medicine 2 days after the procedure!

I had a excellent experience with my wisdom teeth removal. The surgery went nice and smooth. The staff was very nice and informative. I couldn't have asked for a better Doctor. Dr. Koos does an phenomenal job, I will recommend him and his office to everyone. He cares about his patients; he called me that night and made sure I was doing good and if I had any questions. I don't know of any other doctor that does that. He is very knowledgeable and makes sure you know everything that will be going o
