I recently got my wisdom teeth out and Dr. Faerber and everyone at Faerber Surgical Arts made it the best possible experience. They treated me with care, compassion, and professionalism. I was impressed with the entire process, from pre-op to post-op, and I'm especially happy I was able to have my wisdom teeth extracted at an Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Center. Dr. Faerber is an MD in addition to DDS, which made me feel even more confident. Highly recommend!
Leawood, KS |
Dr. Faerber is extremely knowledgeable, trustworthy, and experienced in what he does. We would highly recommend him without hesitation to anyone needing this type of surgery. His staff is great, and very helpful and knowledgeable as well. One important detail that may be overlooked is that he is an M.D., unlike some others, and that is SO important to consider when having surgery.

Dr. Faerber gave me great care and attention to a very difficult and troublesome tooth. I couldn't have asked for a better outcome. I highly recommend he and his staff.
in Olathe, KS |
I'll sum it up in one word. Painless. At all levels. It's not just the procedure, it's the entire customer experience that matters. My experience? No worries, no complications, no scheduling hassles, no billing hassles, no customer service hassles. Their care goes beyond the dental procedure and covers the entire experience. If you need serious dental work done and don't want to worry, come see Dr. Faerber. (Drops microphone, walks away.)

Kansas City, MO |
My first tooth implant could not have gone any smoother. I was nervous and anticipating a lot of pain afterwards - BUT happy to report, I did not even have to fill the pain prescription that Dr. Faerber gave to me, just in case. I took off work on the day he placed the implant, but it wasn't really necessary. I had no complications and only took Advil for a day or two. It healed perfectly and I am now ready for the next step, getting the crown placed. Dr. Faerber's team was so efficient!
in Overland Park, KS |
