Wisdom Teeth Richmond VA
What Are Wisdom Teeth?
Third molars are commonly referred to as wisdom teeth. They are usually the last teeth to develop and are located in the back of your mouth, behind your second molars. Their development is usually completed between the middle teenage years and early twenties, a time traditionally associated with the onset of maturity and the attainment of wisdom.

I originally came to Dr Wheeler for ear lobe repair. He did such a fantastic job that when my dentist told me I needed a wisdom tooth removed I decided to go back to him. During a follow up appointment for my ears I mentioned my upcoming consult for my tooth and he mentioned he hated wasting a patient’s time and he’d look right then. As a mom of 4, one being a needy 2 month old, this was so very appreciated. I explained I was apprehensive and nervous about x rays because dentists have always been very hard on me and I’m prone to cavities. Dr Wheeler immediately made me feel comfortable and said there was absolutely nothing to worry about and went over my x rays with me. I was able to schedule my extraction for the day I was originally going to have my consult. The day of the extraction I was terrified. After being numbed he said I’d feel some pressure and within what felt like 20 seconds he said it was out. I was stunned. I experienced no pain, it was faster than any dental procedure I’ve ever had, and everyone made me feel so comfortable. I can’t recommend this place enough. I have never had such a positive dental experience and I’ve had numerous people tell me that they have also had incredibly positive experiences here. Dr Wheeler is considerate, efficient, and he listens to any questions or concerns you have. His nurse is also incredibly friendly and immediately puts you at ease. Thank for making this procedure the easiest one I’ve ever had.

Thank you so much Dr. Harris for taking such wonderful care of my daughter Kelly during and after her wisdom teeth extraction. As a mother of a child with special needs you provided expert care while calming both of our fears. Your staff was knowledgeable and efficient.

Dr. Neil was so nice and explained all that my procedure was going to be like. He took the time to make sure I was comfortable and walked me through future options to help with my TMJ. I look forward to working with him again for any other needs along those lines.

I highly recommend Dr. Omar Watson! He is wonderful! Smart, kind, well-educated, easy to talk to, accessible... (His staff has been great, too). My daughter has been in MD visiting her grandparents and has had some complications after her wisdom teeth were removed last week. Dr. Watson talked with me, then he personally made calls to a friend/colleague in the MD/DC area to get my daughter seen as quickly as possible. That doctor and her staff worked with us so my daughter could be checked the same day, free of charge. I really can't say enough about how grateful I am. This is patient care/customer service that goes way above and beyond! Thank you, Dr. Watson!

Virginia oral and facial surgery was one of the most organized and well-operated doctors' office I have ever been to. The staff was warm and welcoming along with helping me figure out complications that existed with my dental insurance. Although, wisdom teeth surgery is never fun Dr. Wadowsky made the operation a breeze with the help of a great staff! 10/10 would recommend to any friend or colleague of mine.

Wow- What a good experience I had for something I had a lot of anxiety about. I was referred by my family dentist, Dr. Angus, to Dr. Watson. My initial consultation was at the Brandermill office just before it closed for renovation. The staff was friendly and professional. I liked Dr. Watson immediately. He is professional,confident ,courteous and warm all at once. A nice sense of humor is comforting w/ a visit involving anxiety. The staff kept me updated about payment amounts, pre-opp. info. and appt. reminders by phone,text, e mail and regular mail. They make sure you have no questions or confusion coming into your appt. The procedure was made as comfortable as possible for me. I had already filled the 2 prescriptions for post-op. and started them after getting home. A terribly anxiety- filled experience for me was made so much better by this great team-work staff and Dr. Watson. I will sing your praises to many. Thanks for a superb job

My son has 4 diagnosis on the autism spectrum and he was terrified about having his wisdom teeth pulled. He had many more questions than most and he was horrified, bless his heart. The entire staff was so good with him. They had patience and understanding for a child with tremendous anxiety. I am very grateful for them and would recommend them to ANYONE.

My first visit with Dr. Harris was at age 15. He also did work for me as an adult and completed surgeries for many of my family members. The staff is amazing, professional, warm and very polite. In addition, Dr. Harris recently removed my daughters wisdom teeth (all four). He was passionate. He showed lots of concern with my daughters healing process. Upon completion of her surgery Dr. Harris came out to my car to speak with my daughter and myself. We were anxious and very concerned (post surgery). Dr. Harris went out of his way to address our concerns and offer his calmness. He even came to my car once we left his office to ensure my daughter was ok. He was encouraging and reassured her she was going to be fine. I feel he went above and beyond the call of duty and for that reason alone, I greatly appreciate him. I would definitely recommend Dr. Harris as your personal Oral/Facial Surgeon. There is truly no other like him.
