Patient Testimonial

Dr. Herrera did tori removal surgery for me in January and he was amazing! His entire staff was friendly and made me feel so comfortable. From the front desk staff to the billing coordinator every single person I interacted with was helpful. Post surgery Dr. Herrera responded immediately to any questions I had, and made me feel like a friend instead of just another patient. My husband needs to have his wisdom teeth removed and we will definitely be going to Dr. Herrera!

Dr. Wlodawsky showed compassion and immediately asked about my pain; it was my first visit and was treated with family-like care. I will definitely refer to friends and others

I had another dentist fail at extracting my root after the crown broke. They scheduled me to go to Dr Phelps the same day. I had never meet anyone at the practice before, but I’m glad I have now. Dr Phelps and the staff went above and beyond to help me, and successfully, painlessly, removes my root and pain. Thank you Dr Phelps and your team!

I would highly recommend Dr. Wheeler for any procedure. He is easy to talk to and explains everything so completely. I knew exactly what to expect with my procedures. I had little to no pain after two extractions and a bone graft! His staff is amazing which added to an already excellent experience.

Patient Testimonial

When I had implants a number of years ago with Dr. Keeney, I thought it would be hard to find a medical professional as skilled and likable as he was. But today I came back to Virginia Oral & Facial Surgery for an appointment with Dr. Agnihotri for a different oral issue. I was thoroughly delighted with everyone I met: from the front desk personnel to the doctor’s nurse to Dr. A himself. Unlike other medical offices, I didn’t have to wait long and everyone was caring and kind. I left with a clear understanding of my issues and with a plan going forward and was much reassured. Thank you, Dr. A and everyone else at Virginia Oral & Facial Surgery!
