"Please note that this is not a review regarding their dental care, this is regarding their oral surgery (which they only do once a month reportedly). I had an excellent experience personally. While costly, extracting my wisdom teeth was mandatory and it took all of around 15 minutes. I stayed awake and strong communication was present at all times to ensure that I did not experience any unnecessary pain."- J.Y. / Google / May 31, 2018
