Exceptional Oral Surgeon
From the moment that I entered the office, everyone was kind and efficient. My procedure, an extraction, was handled with care. I felt at ease throughout, and the care that I was given was exceptional. Dr. Gruba and his staff are stellar.

Very good experience
I was able to get an appointment in a reasonable amount of time, the staff was very helpful and nice AND the appointment timing was great. I was seen promptly (especially important when you are getting a procedure done that makes you nervous!). My procedure was smooth, and I felt like he was as gentle as possible (and I have had less than great experiences with dental care in the past). Very pleased.

The best!!
I cannot say enough about Dr Guba and his staff! I needed to find an oral surgeon quickly and they fit me in the next day. Dr Guba introduced himself to me, asked questions and clearly explained what he would be doing. He did not rush and answered all my questions. He is a very caring surgeon and was more than happy to explain things several times to me. His office even called a few days later to see how I was doing! I am VERY happy with Dr Guba and will highly recommend him and his staff. It was actually a pleasure going to have oral surgery! :)

Fast easy service
I was explained my options in detail. I had virtually no wait to be seen. The receptionist was very nice and got my records with no fuss. The procedure was so quick…my tooth was pulled in less than 60 seconds!

Went for an extraction of a fractured tooth. Dr. Guba seemed rushed, which I didn't understand since many of the pts had cancelled due to snow. I asked someone from his staff why the rush? I was told he is just a little hyper. He was not compassionate, didn't explain anything, and was absolutely reckless and painful during numbing. He even hit my tongue with the needle. I was gripping the chair and started shaking after it was over. To top it off, he did not numb the area properly. I expressed I could still feel pain. Apparently he did not believe me. He grasped the tooth to start pulling and I stopped him immediately and got out the chair. He then told me I needed propofol for the extraction! Here's the thing, I had root canal, fillings and a crown with local anesthetic with two different dentists and had zero problems! I am not a nervous person nor am I afraid of dentists or needles. This guy is just bad. Looking at the ratings, he's either high 5 or low 1, nothing in between.

I had my wisdom teeth extracted by Dr. Guba. Even after all four bony impacted wisdom teeth were removed my recovery was easy. I only took 2 Advil for pain throughout my entire recovery.

Dr Guba ruined my life. I was on a cancer medicine that negatively affects the mouth area after extraction. It is a year later and a 2nd surgery from another Doctor. May need several more surgeries because of his incompetence.

Dr. Guba was rude and uncaring to my son, my husband and myself. His treatment of my son's broken, non-displaced jaw was extreme and the exact opposite of the two other surgeons we contacted. He did not examine my son, ask him any questions or consider a different course of treatment other than wiring his jaw shut for 4 weeks. The other two surgeons disagreed strongly with his opinion. When we hesitated to immediately agree with him, he practically threw us out of the office. I'm grateful he did

Dr. Guba was patient and careful. He explained everything and put me at ease. The treatment was done expeditiously and successfully. Dr. Guba called me to tell me the results and sent the findings to my primary physician and me. Great experience.

My daughter needed her wisdom teeth removed. Our first experience with Dr. Guba was talking to Heather. Heather was extremely helpful with every question I had pertaining the appointment, insurance, pre-treatment estimate and any other questions that arose. She was patient and professional. We than met Dr. Guba who was fantastic always a full explanation of the process from A to Z. Day of surgery everyone in the office was friendly and helpful. So glad we met Dr Guba and his amazing team. A+
