I had a very bad experience somewhere else after being in agonizing pain for 7 days after having 4 wisdom teeth removed and when I got to this office I knew it would be better. I instantly felt comfortable and cared for. I had a great experience and no one questioned my pain. I appreciate all of the staff for the kindness and concern for me. I was not able to open my mouth or even eat for 7 days and they fixed me up instantly. I felt better and finally ate real food within 12 hours! Thank you all so much for easing my pain and helping me move on with my life!

I am very satisfied with this practice the staff if very friendly and courteous and helpful. They explained to me in detail about the procedure that I have to get for my wisdom teeth to be extracted. I was a little nervous since it is 3 that need to be done but the staff advised me very well and eased my mind and made the visit worth it. Dr Bankston is awesome as well very detailed and takes the time to talk with you and he listens to your concerns. I will be having my procedure done here and would recommend them.
