Dr. Melissa Amundson explained everything that would be performed on me and assured me I was in good hands. Procedure was painless and Dr. Amundson followed up with me also.
Dr. Amundson recently did a procedure on me and I was extremely happy with the care she provided. The outcome was exactly what I wanted. I would see her again for any other oral/dental services.
Dr. Amundsen is very thorough with explaining procedures and options. I feel she gives you the facts and allows you to make your decision. I have had her preform one surgery and another procedure. I would recommend her to anyone in my family.
Dr Amundson was very caring and informative during my appointment with her , she made me feel at ease and comfortable. I would absolutely go back and see her again.
I came in for consult and procedure with Dr. Amundson- she walked me through everything she was doing which helped put my mind at ease, she even checked on me the next day via text to ensure I was recovering well. Great experience!
I had an extraction and implant done by Dr. Amundson and she did such an amazing job! My tooth was hurting so much when I went to see her and she was very kind and understanding with me.She made sure I was doing okay during the extraction and even texted me the next day asking if I was doing better! Her entire team helped me with the implant process as well and made me feel very comfortable to see them.
