Dr. Schaner Reviews
I got my wisdom teeth out with Dr. Schaner and it could not have been a better experience from the moment I walked into the office through post-op care! The entire staff was kind and welcoming and the office was very nice. I would recommend Dr. Schaner and his staff to anyone!
The doctors (Dr. Schaner) and the staff at AOFS are second to none. Their kindness and patient care were fantastic during what can be a stressful experience. I highly recommend Dr. Schaner and his team!
Let me start by saying Dr.Schaner and his amazing assistant are literally the best dynamic duo! From my first initial visit where I was in pain (Didn’t feel any when I left) until today where I had them removed (Also don’t feel any now and it’s been about 12 hours post-op), they took care of me. I’ve never felt so at ease and relaxed, I have bad dental anxiety to the point of I’ll suffer before seeing dentist. I’m now eating and moving around same day. Thank you guys! I’d definitely recommend this practice to family and friends !
Super nice and professional staff. Dr. Schaner was very thorough in my consultation. Super personable too!!
My experience so far with this office has been amazing. I came in today expecting to not be seen for a few weeks for extraction of two problem teeth. Dr. Schaner’s office has me scheduled for April 1st. Amazing service and can't wait to be rid of these teeth. Highly recommend front staff, dental assistants and oral surgeon are all amazing and easy to talk to and speak with. Other Oral Surgeons couldn't even see me until the 15th of April for a consultation. So A+ on quick and speedy service :)
