Patient Review By Gerald B

I went in to have a tooth extracted. Ofcourse, I already had my own idea of how this was going to go. I couldn't have been more wrong. To start with, the entire staff was friendly, comforting and professional. I was left with very few questions to ask because everything was thoroughly explained and I knew what to expect all the way through the process. Dr. Tentindo let me know what the options were for the procedure, including any risks, and told me what would be the best choice. This allowed me to have a painless experience that was complete in much less time than I had expected. Thanks to everyone. They have definitely earned the 5 stars! Highly recommended!

Patient Review By Bev B

I can't say enough about how wonderful Dr. Ivey, his assistant Ana & Nancy (that scheduled my appointment) really are. Nancy even called me to check on me & appoligized for missing me while I was there. My only complaint would be the last that came to see who was taking care of my $60 bill as I was being prepped for surgery. She was beyond rude to myself & my husband. Everyone else was so helpful & set me at ease. I would 100% refer friends & family to them.

Patient Review By Bev B

I had a very difficult wisdom tooth and a molar extracted. I have had no pain and very little swelling. Dr. Loveless and EVERY staff member was very friendly, comforting and answered every question or concern before I even asked. I have high axiety (as most do) going to the dentist but they made my visit easy & I would recommend them again & again.

Patient Review By Jennifer D

What can I say? No one likes to visit the dentist...especially for anything other than having their teeth cleaned. I am no different. Hated that I had to have a tooth taken out but it was necessary. I was referred here by my dentist to see Dr. Loveless. If I ever have to have anything else done from an oral surgeon, I would never wish to see anyone else. Dr. Loveless and his staff not only made me feel less anxious but they were super nice and made sure that I knew everything that was being done. I would refer them to anyone with complete confidence! If I could give them more than 5 stars, I would. I want to tell them all thank you for making this process much easier on me. Just an amazing staff and surgeon!!

Patient Review By Lana M

We were headed to Florida when my son came down with an abscessed tooth. Dr. Loveless was able to get us in and remove his tooth before our flight. I can't thank Laurie enough for making what could be a scary experience for my 7 year old, a fun, pleasant one. I can't express how thankful I am for her treating him like her own and making sure he was comfortable. She went above and beyond in my eyes and made this nervous mom rest a little easier. Thank you both!!!

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 Kimberly B

My father had gone for a root canal the night before and a root fractured was discovered so the tooth could not be saved. We called the next morning to set up an oral surgery appointment and Dr. Loveless was able to accommodate him the same day. The staff explained everything in great detail regarding finances and post operative instructions. Dr. Loveless also discovered another area of concern and removed an additional tooth. This was extremely helpful since my dad is on blood thinners and we really wanted to avoid having to make two trips. Very clean office as well. Will recommend everyone we know to the practice.

Big thank you to you and your staff! I feel so much better following my tooth extraction yesterday. I didn't even fill my prescriptions yesterday, just took a couple of Ibuprofen. I have virtually no pain today and no swelling! Thank you! I will recommend your practice!
