One of the best

Two of my kids have had their wisdom teeth removed by Dr. Dierks and one of them also had a growth on their tongue. His care and bedside manner is exceptional. The one with the growth on the tongue, he called personally the following day to check in, and it was a holiday. The other child was older and came home from NYC to have the procedure. He had also referred a colleague in NYC if there were any issues (there were not). I just cannot recommend him enough and thanks to our pediatrician for referring us to him. We have one more kid to go and wouldn't see anyone else.

Dr. Deirks is excellent both as a surgeon and a person.

Dr. Deirks is excellent both as a surgeon and a person. We have sent him 2 very challenging patients (severe bone loss, needing dental implant reconstruction). Both patients have been well cared for and have very positive things to say. His surgical skills, post operation follow up communication have all been excellent. I highly recommend him.
