Virginia Oral & Facial Surgery
Dr. Omar Watson is a doctor who goes above and beyond! He is the most thorough, caring, professional and knowledgeable doctor that my husband and I have ever had the good fortune of going to. My husband had a root canal in December and in February it became infected to the point that it could have been life threatening very quickly. The tooth needed to be extracted asap. It was 4:00 in the afternoon and the Endodontist who had done the root canal needed us to go and have it extracted immediately, not his job. First they called our dentist, who was located just across the street, and they could not fit us in for 2 days. We have gone to them frequently for years, waiting was not an option. Unacceptable. The Endodontist had 2 of his office workers making calls to quite a few Oral Surgeons to try and get us in immediately. Watson was the only one who was willing to see my husband, knowing the severity of the situation. He knew that this would go beyond his closing time but he would take on this challenge. After all, he was a good 25 minutes from the Endodontist and it was already 4:10. By his side, Alexis, was willing to stay and assist. Wow, two people so dedicated to help someone in dire need was truly a blessing. Once we got there, they started setting up for surgery. IV being prepared for antibiotics for infection... He was so reassuring and competent, I quickly realized that we were in good hands. Check out his bio, very impressive. As we discussed the procedure, he learned that my husband had radiation on that side of his mouth years ago. Because of that the amount and strength of the radiation was a big concern. We could provide little information about the radiation dosage as it was years ago. He explained that he could extract the tooth, give him antibiotics...but this would be risky since his x-rays showed quite a bit of bone loss in the last 2 months. He was so honest explaining how going to VCU where my husband had received his radiation and they knew the history of his radiation was the best option. It was too late in the day for Dr. Watson to obtain this information from VCU and time was working against us. He said that at VCU it could be a turn key operation and explained some treatment that VCU could provide in order to address the bone loss. OMG, he was so right. He was not trying to move us on, believe me. It was because of this true concern and understanding of the danger my husband was in that he recommended VCU. Dr. Watson did stay beyond his normal hours (6:00) did not hurry us and was so through. We went to VCU ER, my husband was admitted to the hospital to get his infection under control. He had to stay overnight. It was pretty serious. The next morning VCU arranged for us to go to their dental clinic where they extracted the tooth. By the way, before leaving his office, Dr. Watson called VCU to talk to someone there to help facilitate our arrival and treatment making it a quicker and smoother process. He even wrote a note explaining his observations and recommendations for the receiving doctor. His connections really helped. God bless him. While there, the next day, he called to check on us. Additionally, he spoke with the VCU team working with us to discuss our treatment. This is a true DOCTOR who is in the right occupation! His concern for our understanding, ability to communicate with us, compassion for his patients, passion for his job are to be commended, His fabulous staff, especially Alexis, is a reflection of his desire to offer his patients only the best and most caring care. Dr. Watson is truly a stellar doctor. I highly recommend him. I only wish that he was a primary care doctor as well as I am always looking for a good one:) DR. WATSON IS A TRUE GODSEND!

Today I had two extractions performed by Dr. Gardner. He did an excellent job from start to finish. When I had my consultation last week he was very caring and took the time to talk with me about the extractions and my health issues(Cancer) with pre and post care. Today I experienced his wonderful bedside manners. Told me what was happening and asked how I was doing during the procedure. His staff both front desk and surgical assistants were very kind and professional. Great experience all around. Would recommend Dr. Gardner to family and friends

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.

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.

Just today I had to see Dr. Dymon for a procedure. My first visit with him at this practice was last year. Let me say this Dr. Dymon and his staff are absolutely superb. Everything is explained very well. They take their time with you ensuring you are fully aware of what is going on. The doctor and the staff at the Short Pump location makes you feel like part of the family. Dr. Dymon is a genius. He was very honest with me and doesn’t try to talk you into procedures that aren’t necessary and possibly expensive. I love Dr. Dymon and his staff. Yes, will continue to use this doctor and this practice!!!!!

Dr Wheeler is the BEST oral surgeon. There aren’t enough words to describe how pleased I am. Dr Wheeler is patient, caring, thorough and explains everything that he is doing before, during and after every procedure.

Dr. Watson and his staff got me in at a moment’s notice to finish an extraction my dentist could not due to my extremely long roots. They made me feel welcomed and comfortable. Dr. Watson took extra time to thoroughly discuss my situation and treatment. The entire staff was professional and caring from beginning to end. Dr. Watson even called me at home to make sure I was doing OK. I’m definitely going back if I ever need his services again. I highly recommend him.

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.

Dr. Herrera did tori removal surgery for me in January and he was amazing! His entire staff was friendly and made me feel so comfortable. From the front desk staff to the billing coordinator every single person I interacted with was helpful. Post surgery Dr. Herrera responded immediately to any questions I had, and made me feel like a friend instead of just another patient. My husband needs to have his wisdom teeth removed and we will definitely be going to Dr. Herrera!
