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

Coming in today to an emergency last minute appointment from an already started procedure with my dentist i was nervous and in a lot of pain. The front staff accommodated me and helped me fill out my paperwork quickly and effectively. When I went back with the nurse ( I wish i could remember her name) she was so sweet amd gentle with everything she did with me. We met with Dr. Wlodawsky aho immedoately made me comfortable went over what was going to happen and eberything worked out. The team was able to squeeze me in last minute to get the tooth removed and in a matter of a few short hours from my arrival i was on my way home pain free and so happy with the service i had received!
