Doctor Herrara was awesome with my child and his assistant as well! Friendly and assured my son was well taken care of thank you all!
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.

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!
