DR. HERRERA MADE SURE THAT I WAS NOT EXPERIENCING ANY PAIN FROM START TO FINISH. HE DID AN OUTSTANDING JOB COMPLETING A VERY DIFFICULT EXTRACTION THAT COULD NOT BE SUCCESSFULLY COMPLETED BY MY DENTIST. TOTALLY PROFESSIONAL, POLITE AND CONCERNED.

Dr. Wlodawsky performed a planned sliding genioplasty and has literally changed my life. I'm no longer living in the area and I know that the surrounding Richmond area has a great reputation for medical/dental care, therefore I made the decision to reach out. I couldn't be happier with the result! Dr. Wlodawsky spent time with me and answered all of my questions. He just didn't meet my expectations, he exceeded them! The office staff was and continues to be super friendly and attentive. Everyone who was involved with my procedure was courteous and superiorly professional. Thank you Dr. Wlodawsky for making a dream come true.

Dr. Herrera performed a delicate extraction under a bridge with excellent results. He was very caring and made the procedure as easy as possible. The recovery was simple. The whole staff was very helpful and made the visit go smoothly. The view from his operating area was calming and relaxing.

This oral facial surgery clinic is highly recommended, personnel are friendly and treat you like family. I have my wisdom teeth removal, and they are helping you from prep to post surgery process. I am 41years old, and I’m please with my recovery. Make sure to request exparel treatment after surgery; it helps a lot. Thank you.

Dr. Omar Watson recently extracted some of my wisdom teeth. He is an excellent oral surgeon, as well as very thoughtful and kind. The staff and team of medical assistants are wonderful as well. Everybody there is just welcoming and make you feel at ease. When I went for my initial consultation with Dr. Watson, he thoroughly explained the procedure and what to expect during and after the extraction. My recovery time was minimal and I did not experience much pain at all in the days after the procedure was done. The post op instructions clearly explained about after care. Within just a couple of days I was feeling great, and was even able to give an oral presentation (virtually) for one of my college courses. I am stilling following the post-op instructions of keeping my mouth clean, and feel that I am healing well. I really do appreciate how Dr. Watson himself and one of his assistants contacted me to see how I was doing after the procedure. It’s those personal touches that really show how much they care. I would definitely recommend this practice to family and friends.
