Patient Review By Susan G
Two years ago I had a terrible issue with a tooth that was extracted from another doctor. Everything that could have gone wrong did. I developed a life-threatening infection. Dr. Ivey was the only doctor who know what was wrong and hospitalized me to perform surgery. He was the only dentist I went to, after seeing several, who knew exactly what went wrong and how to fix it. I was very ill. Throughout the entire process, he was confident and compassionate. It was a long drawn out recovery but in the end, all went well and I have Dr. Ivey to thank for that. I will never go to another oral surgeon except him and highly recommend him!

Patient Review By John S
I just had a tooth pulled two days ago and feel amazing. The entire staff was awesome. I sat in the waiting room for 15 minutes , then was in and out . I would give them 6 stars if I could . For the care that I got I would have paid triple of what I did. Super clean everywhere, they really made me feel at ease, since I have never been a big fan of needles and people messing with my teeth. Absolutely love these guys.

Patient Review By Jan R
I had a wisdom tooth and molar extracted under IV anesthetic. I am a Registered Nurse and am impressed with the up to date electronic monitoring equipment used on me during the procedure plus up to date anesthetic and pain management plan. I felt no pain from the beginning of the procedure untiI later in the evening which was minimal. Following the Pain Management plan has kept pain very well under control. I left the office in an ice pack sling with a nice case of supplies needed for the next few days including two extra gel ice packs for the freezer, a fact sheet of instructions and what to expect and do. Very professional group.
