Wisdom teeth are the third set of molars that usually appear in your late teens or early 20s. Because they can cause a range of oral health problems, dentists frequently recommend their removal.

Even with vast improvements in American dental care, millions of patients still suffer from tooth loss – mostly due to tooth decay, gum disease (gingivitis), or dental injury. Previously, the only treatment options for missing teeth were bridges and dentures. Today, dental implants offer a lot of benefits over traditional dentures, bridges, crowns, and fillings.

Five stars all around!

I had a quick consultation followed by surgery to have all four wisdom teeth removed. Everyone I interacted with (from front desk to assistants to nurses and doctors) was friendly and helpful and a pleasure to work with. It seems like Dr. Amundson and her team did a great job, considering I feel great and barely have any swelling the day after surgery (of course, your mileage may vary). Five stars all around! Plus, they have an exceptional waiting room... (You'll just have to see for yourself!)

While cancer sucks, Head & Neck Surgical Associates doesn't!

Referred to Dr. Patel with a neck mass. Had been passed along the system for approximately 5-6 weeks for tests and random appointments. Once I got to Dr. Patel I finally received answers and the urgency my condition warranted! His Nurse Practitioner Christine Fratangelo is absolutely outstanding! I was scheduled for surgery ASAP and necessary tests were made a priority and not delayed as previous. Dr. Patel completed a modified radical neck dissection within 14 days of my initial appointment. While I'm not a fan of the cosmetic outcome, he saved all the important nerves in my face and neck and essentially my life. No nonsense, highly educated and caring medical staff. While cancer sucks, Head & Neck Surgical Associates and their staff don't!

Amazing experience.

Amazing experience. Had my wisdom tooth pulled here and the Dr and staff did a great job!

You're in really great hands with Dr Cheng!

Procedure went near perfect - Textbook, I might add! Insurance covered pretty much all of it - which I was very thankful for! Dr Cheng did a great job and was a super nice guy! I remember telling him I was scared about the wisdom teeth procedure and as he was reassuring me, Darkness! The anesthesia hit- 45 minutes later, I awoke with gauze in my mouth. The recovery took about 5 days until pain and soreness dissipated to minor levels but overall, I was able to handle the pain with Ibuprofen after 2 days. It really wasn't that bad. Just follow all the instructions they give you and you'll do fine. Being new to the area, I was really worried about finding a skilled oral surgeon who could maximize my insurance benefits. Luckily, I got both! You're in really great hands with Dr Cheng!

20/10 would recommend for sure

Had to get a broken tooth extracted and considering that needed done it was a pretty good experience. No wait time, the surgeon and assistants made sure I was comfortable and understood everything going on, and let me put on ant musmusic I wanted to help me relax. 20/10 would recommend for sure.
