I was petrified! Dr Shaik and his staff could not have been kinder! They were informative, comforting and professional! I have already recommended Orofacial & Dental Implant Surgery to my friends. Dr. Shaik was so quick, my oral surgery was over before I could think about it.

John McNeil - Clermont, FL Since February 2016, I have had oral surgery performed at the Orofacial Kissimmee office to extract teeth #18, 29 & 30. Doctors Luis Alicea and Ofillo Morales performed these extractions, and other than the pressure of pulling the teeth out it was painless. My last oral surgery at Orofacial Kissimmee was to remove the Tori on the lower right and left side of my mouth. Doctor Zakir Shaikh performed this initial surgery and follow up to remove bone fragments was done at

Dental work is a huge source of anxiety for me. Having my wisdom teeth removed had me incredibly nervous, but Dr. Shaikh and his staff at Orofacial took such good care of me, taking into account my fears. The process went smoothly and my recovery was much better than I had been prepared for. I've already recommended Dr. Shaikh to friends!
