I can not say enough great things about Dr. Sean Pack and his team! This doctor and his amazing staff are top notch and go above and beyond in every aspect. Having a dental emergency and needing a tooth extracted, Dr. Pack talked to me about what would be done to get me out of pain. He not only spoke to me about my concerns and minor setbacks I had but he listened... he cares about his patients. This kind of concern and caring demeanor cannot be faked. He genuinely cares and his very knowledgeable in all areas of his profession. Dr. Pack and his staff were prompt in returning calls and getting me an appointment in more than a timely manner. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Pack to anyone that has oral surgery needs.

Dr. Kenney removed ten of my teeth and I kept waiting for the pain to start and I had none! While I obviously can't guarantee this for everyone,other doctors have told me no pain was directly the result of the skill of the oral surgeon. Thank you Dr. KENNEY
