Dr. Jo Reviews
Dr. Jo and his staff are fantastic! I had two teeth extracted and an implant placed without ANY pain! They are always friendly, knowledgeable, caring and accommodating. If I need additional work done, I will definitely be coming back to Dr. Jo.
The office and staff were very professional and very easy to schedule my sons wisdom teeth appointment. I really appreciate their kindness and flexibility on his football schedule as well. Never did I just feel as he was a number. I truly think they valued him as a patient. The office was very clean, also the best thing was the pre and post op care instructions to follow before and after his appointment. I highly recommend this office. GREAT JOB to Dr Jo and his AMAZING staff!
Extremely friendly and prompt. Dr. Jo was amazing - pain free implant with only a local. And his assistant Cassy had the kindest eyes, it really lowered by anxiety. In and out in under 30mins!
Dr. Jo and his staff were wonderful and very professional. Had 2 implants with no problems at all. Would definitely recommend them to anyone who needs oral surgery.
Dr. Jo did a wonderful job extracting my two wisdom teeth on the right side of my mouth. The procedure was quick and painless. Recovery has been easier than expected. His team is very upbeat and positive.
