But his patients don’t tell you that.

They tell you about his energy. His infectious laugh. His curiosity His passion for the work…the science…the art of creating a perfect smile. They tell you they wish all their doctors were like him.

Wisdom Tooth Removal

Wisdom tooth extraction is a surgical procedure to remove one or more wisdom teeth — the four permanent adult teeth located at the back corners of your mouth on the top and bottom. If a wisdom tooth doesn’t have room to grow (impacted wisdom tooth), resulting in pain, infection or other dental problems, you’ll likely need to have it removed. Wisdom tooth extraction may be done by a dentist or an oral surgeon.

TMJ Disorder

There are two parts on either side of the jaw, referred to as the temporomandibular joints. These joints function as a sliding hinge connecting the jawbone to the skull. When a patient experiences an issue with this part of the jaw, there can be pain or tenderness in either or both jaw joints, aching pain in or around the ear, headaches or migraines, difficult or painful chewing, aching facial pain, or locking of the joint.
